The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light
Dear Readers,

If JFK would be still alive he might by surely including in his famous book Profiles of Courage, Pulitzer awarded in 1957, the inspirational story of this brave so young elephant of Chinzombo Safari Camp in Zambia, nicknamed Hercules, fairly called after the Greek semi god of force for his courage and coolness that save his life from an attack of 14 hungry lions.

Please check:

I am sure this is also something that Napoleon Hill would consider an example of the power of positive thinking, or Dr Wayne Dyer would take as the best example of the power of intention, working perfectly in really disparate scenarios.

This so young elephant, just one year old, decided to don't give up, don't allow panic take control of himself, and he won successfully a fight of death or life against all odds.

It is interesting to see how Animals are able to give us great lessons of life, they confront us with our most basic instincts of survival. They can teach us that a combination of coolness, faith in life, determination of character and courage to never give up in facing great dangers or challenges is many times the only recipe that work well to succeed and even survive under conditions anybody else has fallen in desperation,failure and even death.

Cool-headed elephant fights off 14 lionesses in Zambia
By Ben Hooper

Please check this incredible real life story:

I beg your pardon if feminists don't like the comment, anyway 14 female lions hunting represent a huge danger for anybody that really knows the law of the jungle.

This case make us realize why Elephants are considered symbol of wisdom and good luck in many cultures.

Elephants are even deified in India, and other countries of south Far east, as powerful archetypes of Intelligence, dignity, strength, moderation and longevity, and being highly appreciated and respected. It was only the white European hunters who dared to prosecute unmercifuly these magnificent beasts, that are almost alive fossils.

Please check:

The thread is open to all who are needing a voice of support and courage to overcome great difficulties and moreover risky situations for life, for all the ones that are looking for inspiration to win their own great personal battles.

Thanks for your attention,

I'm glad the little elephant won, but lions need to eat too. It's a cruel world.

Well, the lesson here is that nature rewards who decides to play the courage role, in the side of life, and not who is decided to work in the coward role, in the death side.

Of course when 14 individuals decide to go altogether against 1 is not precisely an example of any virtue, it might be unfair that such an action would prevail, even in the law of jungle.

Yes, perhaps this world is cruel but God is fair, the vital force that spurs all life, that is the good news here, and from it help can come to whom has the courage to believe in its right to be here, in the strength that can be found in integrity and courage, and does not give up.

This can be seen also as the very old battle in between Cosmos and Chaos, the constructive and the destructive forces of the Universe.

Life is fair and give to each one what their attitudes deserve, it was the way the Young lonely elephant decided to face the situation what saved him.

After all the African savannah is populated of a lot of also coward Hyenas or jackals that the can be perhaps easily predated by hungry lions like the ones of this episode.

I was hoping that a hidden croc in the water was going to make the video even more entertaining, but it was too shallow. What a drag. Imagine a croc lunging out towards the back of the elephant and taking in one of the lions in the process, now that would have been awesome!

it is not a secret that elephants were hunted massively, almost to the point of extinction as central part
of the safari industry that became developed as a way of entertainment for the British high social classes looking for a new exciting vacation plans during the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

It was really rare to find these kind of practices carried out by the natives of the countries in which elephant exists, for the simple reason that those peoples have veneration for such a magnificent Beast.

Elephants were not the only species affected by such passion for hunting, many others became object of the fascination as trophy of people that believed to be doing just sport.

After that era the principal issue that African elephants have faced is the demand of ivory, causing a trade that exists in between their original lands and Europe or far east. This trade became banned and also criminalized since the 1970s in some countries and finally by 1989 in the rest of the world, although still exist as illegal activity.
