Run Towards the Minotaur and Kill Him

2 min read

We get lost in mazes sometimes. We forget our purpose or we become paralyzed by succumbing to fear and we can’t move to even find our way out. Men forget what they were put on this earth for, or we just lack the courage or the focus to accomplish our intrinsic goals. Good God, we’re supposed to run towards the Minotaur and kill it! In legend the Minotaur was a bull-headed monster born to Queen Pasiphae of Crete after she slept with a bull. The creature we are told resided in a maze that Daedalus and Icarus built, and it was regularly offered a sacrifice of youth to satisfy its hunger. Theseus the mythical king and founder of Athens was known for his courage and cleverness. With just sandals, his sword and intent he sought out and killed the beast. Every man and woman every day is faced with the loss of youth. Youth gave us our curiosity, our hopefulness, humor, motivation and playfulness. Youth too gave us our sense of adventure and need for incessantly questioning things. Don’t let youth die in the maze of the Minotaur. Smell its foul odor, close your eyes, listen to its heavy breathing. Track it down and pierce the heart of this monster because it devours youthfulness and with it your hopefulness. If you are feeling at a loss today because of something in your past you need to get off of your fat ass and charge ahead every freaking day and kill that Minotaur. Theseus battled and overcame his foes. Do the same. Everyday believe that you can make a difference in your own life and the lives of others. Don’t run from your problems and the things that can devour you like your addictions, instead run at them bang on and destroy them. Shout, “come at me! I am ready to kill you!”~Michael Kurcina.
