The fool archetype:
The Fool/Jester archetype urges us to enjoy the process of our lives. Although the Fool/Jester can be prone to laziness and dissipation, the positive Fool/Jester invites us all out to play–showing us how to turn our work, our interactions with others, and even the most mundane tasks into FUN.
If I am foolish,
I jump out of the box,
I push the envelope.
I am creative.
Humor is my life’s blood.
Shame has no place in my foolish world.
To be quiet is not foolish.
You’re not foolish when you are in a rut.
The foolish are shocking, startling, and unexpected.
Share your foolishness with others, with the world.
I cannot love foolishly, for with each effort I lapse into sincerity, obligation, and deceit.
Who loves a fool ? Everyone.
Who wants to appear foolish? No one.
Let go! Let go! Let go!
Do one foolish thing right now.
I am writing a foolish poem right now.
I’m smiling and feeling happiness.
I love the fool in me, and all the things he does, right or wrong.
Do you think me a fool for telling you this?
