The Olympics

Good morning brave hearts.
Another beautiful day to warm your hearts and brighten your spirits.
In this lofty time of games and sport, we look to the awesome might of the champion. Skills and perseverance, an aptitude at it’s finest, carefully controlled, carefully focused, nurtured, cultivated, practiced and finely tuned. Mankind at his highest peak, the role of the champion.

The feats of daring, the pursuit of excellence, the flexing and strength of hours and hours of laborious training, all to answer the call, the one call of courage and daring, the call of the almighty human, the champion.
The days stretch out before us as we watch in thrilling wonder at the power and versatility of the human mind and body. We watch in captivated admiration for a tested skill, so brilliantly executed, such fine minds, such fine bodies, such extreme sport.
That strong, perfect muscle,so conditioned, so obedient. A gift of rare connectivity from mind to body. That perfect control, that instant demand, that power, that courage, that skill.
The body flows with the sharpened wakefulness of a conscience of it’s own. The brilliant mind thinks it and the body enacts it. The oneness, the syncrenosity, the immediate response.
Feel the power as your body soars, it’s mission, to accomplish the demands of the mind. The higher the aptitude, the stronger the will, the more successful the performance. No cowards there. Only the strong, almighty human, with control, persistence, wakefulness and focus.
Your eyes see the play, your brain enacts the result, your body obeys as it’s conditioned to do.
The training of the body is a long and ardorous journey, filled with pitfalls of injury, sore muscles, pain and exhaustion. The weary body, fighting the demanding mind. The weary body crying for rest. The weary body screaming pain and injury. No more!
Oh, but the strong and demanding mind remains focused to it’s goal, to the one lofty end that is in sight for this simple human body with a spirit and brain that outmatches it. The body is controlled, it performs accordingly. Training! To train the body to accept the demands of the mind.
Oh, lofty almighty human, in these days of reckoning, who has persevered and trained their body to succeed. Who has demanded of their body, more than the body can give.
Inspire us, oh great ones. Your time has come. For athletic ability is part of the human condition and part of the human spirit. To soar with the eagles, to reach the summit, to swim with the dolphins to conquer it all.
Here, where the indomitable spirit of the human, conquers all, saves us and immortalizes us. Now to play, as only the strongest contestants can play. To play for sport, to play for competition, to play for fun and to play for glory.
Almighty human, we applaud thee, we reward thee and we thank thee. For again,the spirit of the indomitable human is the focus of the day.
Hail bravehearts, you serve us well. Your brilliant minds and impeccable bodies thrill us.
Hail brave hearts, for us, today and always, you are the almighty man.
