The movies, How to Train Your Dragon I and II, are set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons. Hiccup, a Viking teenager, doesn’t exactly fit in with his tribe’s longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup’s world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view.
What captured me the most was the beautiful relationship Hiccup develops with this dragon in particular. They assist each other through and beyond their handicaps becoming one. They protect each other and take many risks. Together they soar to amazing heights!
The movie theme mirrors a message: When we have faith from our own inner truth, we are loved, protected, nourished and fully provided for. I like to envision Source as my friendly, strong, helper, protector dragon going everywhere with me.
The first bridge that I must cross with my dragon is the Bridge of the Heart. On the other side will be memories that bring out beautiful, loving feelings. I remember nice moments, pets, chocolate, people who love me and I love them. I am filled with joy.
The second bridge I must cross with my dragon, is the Bridge of the Soul. I am led right into the garden of my soul reminding me that everything we love doesn’t last physically, but will remain in my heart forever. I understand I must continually let go and still love with all of my heart. Here, I forgive, accept, and appreciate what was, what still is and what may go at any time.
The third bridge I must cross with my dragon is the Bridge of Source. Light is all around me as well as darkness, but I am safe. I feel the peace of “no mind” and clarity that heals and renews me.
