Panther Reflection

Animals reflect our behaviour. The animals we feel a closeness to, encounter often, engage with, attract, and so on; have a role to play in that moment of our lives. They offer an understanding of the ‘play’ that is our current experience, and give insight into the intricacies of our lives. Following is the understanding for the incredibly strong Panther. (The Panther is a Leopard with melanism, which makes him appear black.)

Panther   (Listen while you read) 


You’ve got it wrong, dear friend. The world is not round, no it isn’t.

I’ll argue that ’til I’m black and blue. Yes, I will.


It would seem that those of us (myself included) who admire this grand creature are subject to standing up for ourselves; right or wrong.

We do not approve of others insisting they ‘prove their point’.

Whether or not they are correct is of no consequence. It is fairness and justice we wish for.

No amount of arguing will coerce us into believing much of what they say.

Unfortunately, they have ‘dug their own graves’, so to speak, by endeavouring to argue.

This is folly to individuals such as me. We do not appreciate attitudes and understandings being shoved down our throats. We would much prefer a calm resolve to include as much detail as is necessary, and then leave it up to us to make a judgment.

Therefore, there is little that one can do to change a Panther lover’s heart, or mind. State your case and vamoose if you do not want the wrath of the Panther personality reducing you to a wimp like imbecile. That’s right. Get out before the Panther personality rips you to shreds. We have powerful bodies, and they cater to a powerful mind. No nonsense; thank you very much…… You heard me; vamoose!

Well, my friends, it would seem that we have a predilection for justice, and with a strong moral code. Being one of those who admire this creature, I am pleased to know this. I was a little afraid, at the start, that I was feeling the energies of a bully. Phew; thanks guys. I’ve enjoyed this one, too.

  1. I relate . . . standing my ground for myself and others at any cost. In the past this has been to my detriment however, now I can stand my ground without ripping myself or anyone else to shreds.

    1. Here, here; good for you!

      I’ve always found the reflections (of the animals I feel a ‘closeness’ to) have a special meaning to me. This one in paricular. I just adore the Panther… so very strong. With all that strength though, comes a responsibility to ‘temper’ what could otherwise be seen as ‘aggression’. “Beware the claws”, one may say to oneself when the overwhelming urge to gouge out some injustice or when nonsense occurs. It’s good to know this about oneself! 😉

    1. Yes, I was reading that ‘comic book reading’ is one of your delights.! Glad that the reflection proved satifactory. He is one of my favourite animals, so strong. Please feel welcome to request a reflection of any of your favourite creatures. I’d love to do that for you…

  2. This is great! I never quite thought of the Panther in the way you write about, such as not pressing your point and such! That seems so right and perfect! I love this. Now I need to get off my tush and do the one I was thinking about!

      1. I liked it very, very much! Did you see what I wrote about Panthers and Polar bears? Not nearly as well as you write, but it was a fun exercise for me, and if not for you I wouldn’t have even tried it! Good or bad! 🙂 Thanks!

        1. I am sooooo sorrrrrrryyyyyy. Yes, I did see your article and yes I thought it was just wonnnnnderfulllllll. You should do more of that sort of article…. it was so lovely to read it; straight from the heart. 😉

          The reason I didn’t make a comment was because I thought I may have been considered a little egotistical ’cause of the reference to my blog…. so silly, I realise now. I’ll get on over there later and do as I should have done…. 😉
