Brothers, we humans tend to make things complex and in our complexity, we get caught up in worry, self-doubt, and rumination. We worry so much that we begin to drown our inner voice, which makes us doubt our intuition or ignore our inner voice altogether.  The world teaches us to listen to everyone around us; parents, teachers, law enforcement, and the government. But we are rarely taught to listen to the only voice that matters, the only voice that holds truth: the voice that comes from within. Instead of listening to what you've been told to listen to, brothers, it's time to go within and listen to yourselves and trust what you hear.  Now, the way to gain control of your life is through cognitive mastery and emotional ownership. That means not conforming to what's been programmed in you since childhood, and instead using your intuition to guide you to the truth. It also entails ignoring the seeds of doubt and fear and “I'm not good enough” and instead meditating on the real truth of “I am perfect,” because that, brothers, is your true nature. The genius mind of Hans Christian Andersen gifts us with profound life lessons in his tale, The Emperor's New Clothes. What we learn from the story is that, even when the truth is plain to see, humans will still believe the lies they are told. This is because we either look to others to give us the truth (informational social influence) or accept what others say to be liked and accepted by society (normative social influence). This is using fear to rationalize the lies we hear. This is living in complexity and rumination. Brothers, it's time to put unwavering trust in your inner voice and allow it to connect you to the divine oneness, to the source. Your voice is the only one that won't lie to you and once you remember this, you will be empowered as an alpha man. Don't trust me, trust yourself, and elevate your alpha.

The Emperor's New Clothes by Hans Christian Andersen audiobook. This is a collection of a few of my personal favorite stories by Hans Christian Andersen that I most loved as a child and still enjoy as an adult. The Emperor's New Clothes was funny from my earliest years because even then I could see that it poked fun at adults and their silly pretensions; The Ugly Duckling I think, was enjoyable because the bullied little one turned out so well and it had a happy ending although I thought even as a child that the protagonist should have gone back and brought those mean barnyard fowl down a peg or two. Little Tiny or Thumbellina is just a sweet story with adventure thrown in and The Brave Little Tin Soldier was and is a tribute to bravery and steadfastness. The last story, There Is No Doubt About It ! was so obviously silly and fun even to a young child and frankly, I just love the way the animals talk in this story.

The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen audiobook. The Little Mermaid" (Danish: Den lille havfrue, literally: "the little sea lady") is a very well known fairy tale by the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen about a young mermaid willing to give up her life in the sea and her identity as a mermaid to gain a human soul and the love of a human prince. The tale was first published in 1837 and has been adapted to various media including musical theatre and animated film. But this tale is not the Disney version, all cleaned up and made pretty. This is the way Andersen wrote it. The Little Mermaid is indeed at the happy wedding of her beloved prince, but she is not the bride. And then she becomes a big bubble. Curious? Listen and find out what happens.

Voyage en terre de contes, au Danemark, sur les traces du plus célèbre des Danois: Hans Christian Andersen. Un écrivain mondialement célèbre pour ses contes mais dont le destin, hors norme, demeure peu connu.  Rarement, un auteur aura autant puisé dans sa singulière existence matière à imaginer et écrire des histoires fantastiques, à la beauté tragique et étrange, mettant en scène de fragiles princesses au petit pois, un roi tout nu, une sirène opiniâtre ou des fleurs qui vont au bal pendant que les enfants sont au lit.  Né en 1805 à Odense sur l'île de Fionie, dans une famille aimante mais très pauvre, l'auteur de la Reine des Neiges, la Petite Fille aux Allumettes ou le Vilain Petit Canard a très tôt trouvé refuge dans l'imaginaire et la fantaisie, nourrissant le rêve de jouer, plus grand, sur une scène de théâtre. Parti seul à Copenhague dès l'âge de 14 ans, Andersen a dû lutter contre le froid, la faim et bon nombre de préjugés pour devenir l'immense écrivain reconnu dans le monde entier, qu'il a été de son vivant et qu'il est encore aujourd'hui.  Près de 150 ans après sa mort, dans les rues de Copenhague, la figure d'Andersen est partout présente: dans le nom des rues, les vitrines de souvenirs mais aussi dans le statuaire de la ville, où il apparaît souvent tel un magicien du XIXe siècle, avec sa longue cape de voyage et son chapeau haut de forme. À Odense, sa ville natale, un tout nouveau musée Andersen immersif et ambitieux, a ouvert ses portes en juin 2021. Imaginé par le studio d'architecture du japonais Kengo Kuma, les lieux invitent le visiteur à plonger dans un univers enchanté et inquiétant, truffé de fleurs métalliques, de silhouettes découpées au ciseau qui s'animent et d'objets qui parlent. Ici, on est très loin de l'univers Disney qui a adapté certains des récits les plus célèbres d'Andersen. La visite est poétique, teintée de la douce ironie dont Andersen avait le génie dans ses écrits, et ramène à des territoires de l'enfance insoupçonnés sinon oubliés.  Maître incontestable du papier découpé, Andersen a laissé derrière lui plus de cent soixante contes ainsi que six romans, une trentaine de pièces de théâtre, une impressionnante correspondance, trois recueils de poésie, quatre mille cinq cents pages de journaux intimes et sept récits de voyages. « Voyager, c'est vivre » disait-il. Et Andersen passera en effet sa vie, en nomade solitaire et farfelu, sans enfants ni famille, sur les routes du vaste monde, à la table des rois, des reines et des plus grands artistes de son temps.  Auteur de trois autobiographies, il a tenu à faire de sa vie un conte. Et c'est ce conte là que l'on vous raconte ici, entre Odense et Copenhague, entre hier et aujourd'hui, entre fiction et réalité, entre magie du conte et mélancolie de la vie. Un voyage sonore de Céline Develay-Mazurelle et Laure Allary, réalisé en collaboration avec le Labo RFI et Xavier Gibert. Émission initialement diffusée le 25 décembre 2021.     Pour préparer votre voyage sur les pas d'Andersen :  Le site de Visitdenmark regorge d'informations en français sur Andersen et les différents sites reliés au grand homme. À travers tout le Danemark, et particulièrement dans la jolie ville de Odense mais aussi l'élégante capitale Copenhague  Le musée ou HC Andersens Hus situé dans la ville d'Odense est un lieu incontournable qui mérite le voyage (1h30 en train seulement depuis Copenhague). Ouvert en juin 2021, sa scénographie est hypermoderne et son architecture impressionnante. Ce musée est adossé à la maison de naissance d'Andersen. Non loin, on peut également visiter la petite maison où Andersen a grandi.  Pour voyager en contes et en lettres : Oeuvres. Tome I & II. Hans Christian Andersen. Collection La Pléiade. Éditions Gallimard. 1992,1995. L'ensemble de ses contes ici réunis et quelques récits de voyage ainsi qu'une autobiographie dans une belle traduction de Régis Boyer. Contes d'Andersen illustrés par Edmund Dulac. Éditions BNF. 2016. Il ne faut pas passer à côté des sublimes aquarelles de Dulac qui a su saisir avec son pinceau l'étrange beauté des contes d'Andersen.  Le conte de ma vie. Hans Christian Andersen. Éditions Les Belles Lettres. 2019. Parce que le plus extraordinaire récit d'Andersen est sans doute celui qu'il a fait de sa vie Les papiers découpés d'Andersen. Éditions Ion. 2018. Pour découvrir les étranges silhouettes et compositions découpées dont Andersen avait le génie.  Andersen, les ombres d'un conteur. Nathalie Ferlut. Éditions Casterman. 2016.

“The Little Mermaid” has become popular around the world since the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen published it almost two centuries ago. Lucy Fraser's The Pleasures of Metamorphosis: Japanese and English Fairy Tale Transformations of “The Little Mermaid” (Wayne State University Press, 2017) uses Japanese and American transformations of “The Little Mermaid” to think through the pleasures that the text provides for consumers. Building on Mayako Murai's From Dog Bridegroom to Wolf Girl: Contemporary Japanese Fairy-Tale Adaptations in Conversation with the West, Fraser tracks transformations from the nineteenth century through 2008, with particular attention to literary and filmic media. The binary languages of the title are matched by a series of binaries that Fraser identifies within The Little Mermaid and its transformations. Fraser shows how Andersen's story presents readers with strict binaries – like human-merfolk, sea-land, and soul-soulless – only for the protagonist to transgress them. The Pleasures of Metamorphosis then presents readers with more binaries – between transformations that emphasize the (male, human) prince and those that emphasize the (female, non-human) mermaid, for example – to show the diverse pleasures inherent to the text. In so doing, The Pleasures of Metamorphosis traverses Disney's classic animated film and Studio Ghibli's more recent Ponyo (2008) as well as literature by a host of skilled writers, including Yumiko Kurahashi, Banana Yoshimoto, Jun'ichirō Tanizaki, Oscar Wilde, Kōbō Abe, Yōko Ogawa, Shūji Terayama, and Hiromi Kawakami. The book concludes by showing the promise of theories surrounding Japan's shōjo, or girls', culture for non-Japanese works. Lucy Fraser is Senior Lecturer in Japanese at The University of Queensland, Australia, where she teaches Japanese language and literature.

The Pleasures of Metamorphosis then presents readers with more binaries – between transformations that emphasize the (male, human) prince and those that emphasize the (female, non-human) mermaid, for example – to show the diverse pleasures inherent to the text. In so doing, The Pleasures of Metamorphosis traverses Disney's classic animated film and Studio Ghibli's more recent Ponyo (2008) as well as literature by a host of skilled writers, including Yumiko Kurahashi, Banana Yoshimoto, Jun'ichirō Tanizaki, Oscar Wilde, Kōbō Abe, Yōko Ogawa, Shūji Terayama, and Hiromi Kawakami. The book concludes by showing the promise of theories surrounding Japan's shōjo, or girls', culture for non-Japanese works.

Había una vez un pequeño pino que vivía en el bosque. Este pino era muy bonito pero pequeño. Tenía un buen sitio donde crecer y todo el aire y la luz que quería, y estaba además acompañado por otros pinos y abetos mayores que el. Pero este pequeño realmente se empeñaba en crecer con mucha prisa y pasión!Como tenia tanto afán de crecer No prestaba la menor atención al sol ni a la dulzura del aire, ni le ponía ningun interés en los niños del campo que pasaban charlando por el sendero cuando salían a recoger fresas y moras silvestres. A veces los niños después de recoger las frutas llegaban con una canasta llena, o con unas cuantas fresas ensartadas en una pequeña rama, y se sentaban a su lado diciendo Que lindo arbolito tenemos aquí. Pero esto al arbolito no le gustaba oírlo porque el lo que quería era ser grande. Al año siguiente como suelen hacerlo los pinos el pequeño pino crecio y produjo un nuevo brote de ramas en su tronco y al siguiente año otro nuevo brote mostrando su crecimiento. Ya se sabe que, tratándose de pinos, siempre es posible conocer su edad por el número de brotes que tienen en su tronco.Sin embargo el pino suspiraba -¡Oh, si pudiera ser tan alto como los demás árboles! - Entonces podría extender mis ramas alrededor y podría mirar el mundo desde lo alto de mi y asi los pájaros podrían venir a hacer sus nidos en mis ramas y, cuando el refrescante viento llegase podría moverme majestuosamente a los lados como lo hacen los otros arboles.A este pino nada lo alegraba, ni siquiera la vista de los pájaros volando, ni el brillo de el sol, ni las rosadas nubes del amanecer y el atardecer que pasaban por lo alto. Cuando llegaba el invierno y la blanca nieve resplandecía por todas partes llenando la pradera donde el vivía, era frecuente que algún conejo travieso se acercara dando brincos sobre la capa de nieve y de un brinco pasara sobre el. Ohh que humillante era esto para el pequeño pinito. Sin embargo pasaron dos inviernos y cuando llego el tercero ya el pinito había crecido tanto que los conejos ya no podían saltar sobre el y dbian rodearlo para seguir su camino. Esto lo lleno de valentía y se repetia. Siii. Debo crecer y crecer y hacerme alto y mayor. Eso es realmente lo mejor y más delicioso en el mundo. Crecer y ser más alto.  Cuando llego el otoño, como todos los años, venían los leñadores a cortar algunos de los árboles más altos y el joven pino, que ya tenía una buena altura, temblaba sólo de verlos, pues los árboles más grandes y espléndidos terminaban cayendo al suelo entre un rugido y un temblar de la tierra al desplomarse desde sus alturas Luego el pino veía como les cortaban todas las ramas, y quedaban tan despojados y flacos en toda su longitud que era imposible reconocerlos; luego los cargaban en carretas y los caballos los arrastraban fuera del bosque.El pino siempre se preguntaba ¿Adónde se los llevaban? ¿Qué sucede con ellos?Cuando llegaba la primavera las golondrinas y las cigüeñas regresaban y el pino les preguntaba -Disculpen, ustedes que viajan por todas partes ¿Saben ustedes adónde han ido los otros árboles, adónde se los han llevado? ¿Los han visto acaso en alguno de sus viajes?Las golondrinas nada sabían, pero la cigüeña se quedó pensativa  un rato y respondió, moviendo la cabeza:-Sí, yo creo saberlo. A mi regreso de Egipto mientras viajaba sobre el oceano encontré un buen número de nuevos veleros; Estos veleros tenían unos mástiles espléndidos, maravillosos, y en cuanto pase cerca de ellos sentí el aroma de los pinos que reconoci inmediatamente.  comprendí que eran ellos los pinos que antes estaban aquí. Y tengo que decir que se veían majestuosos llevando las grandes velas, altos y derechos.El pino que escucho esto dijo. -¡Cómo me gustaría ser lo bastante grande atravesar el mar en un velero Y dicho sea de paso, ¿cómo es el mar? ¿A qué se parece?La cigüeña si

Había una vez una pino que, por muchos años sonó con ser cortado y llevado a vivir donde vivían los humanos. Una navidad llegaron por el y lo llevaron a una mansión y lo colocaron en un gran salón adornado con toda clase de luces, manzanas y panecillos. Durante la nochebuena decenas de niños se divirtieron recogiendo los regalos en sus ramas y luego un contador de historias les contó un cuento que el arbol escucho y memorizo. Pasada la noche buena, el arbol se sorprendio de que no lo adornaran de nuevo y en cambio lo llevaron a un atico oscuro donde paso todo el invierno. Su única compañía eran un grupo de ratoncitos y dos ratas que con el tiempo se cansaron de sus historias y del único cuento que se sabía. Otra vez solo, el arbol se preguntaba cuando lo sacarían de allí y lo llevarían de nuevo a la pradera y el bosque donde había crecido y había sido tan feliz.  Y Ocurrió una mañana que un grupo de personas subieron al atico donde el arbol estaba recostado en un rincón. Estas personas estaban haciendo algún trabajo y desinteresados por la presencia del pino, comenzaron a mover algunas cajas y entre algunos de ellos tomaron el pino y lo movieron de su lugar dejandolo caer sobre el piso polvoriento. Como el enorme pino estaba allí en la mitad decidieron arrastrarlo afuera y entre algunos de ellos lo bajaron por la escalera hasta el primer piso. De nuevo el arbol volvió a sentir la luz del día.  El arbol penso“¡La vida comienza de nuevo para mí!”, mientras sentía el aire fresco y los rayos de sol lo cubrían.  Ya estaba afuera, en el patio. Todo sucedió tan rápidamente y había tantas cosas alrededor que  el árbol se olvidó fijarse en sí mismo. El patio se abría a un jardín donde la primavera estaba en todo su esplendor.  Todo estaba en flor. Sentia el aroma Fresco y dulce de las rosas que colgaban de los pequeños enrejados del patio; los arbustos  habían florecido y las golondrinas volaban de una parte a otra cantando la belleza de aquel día:-¡Esta sí que es vida para mí! -gritó alegremente el pino , extendiendo sus ramas cuanto pudo. Pero, ¡ay!, estas estaban amarillas y secas y se vio tirado en un rincón, entre ortigas y hierbas malas. La estrella de papel dorado aún ocupaba su sitio en la cima y resplandecía a la viva luz del sol.En el patio jugaban algunos de los traviesos niños que por Nochebuena habían bailado alrededor del árbol, y a quienes tanto el les había gustado. Se pusieron felices de verlo de nuevo y  uno de los más pequeños se le acercó corriendo y le arrancó la reluciente estrella dorada.-¡Mira lo que aún quedaba en ese feo árbol de Navidad! -exclamó el infante mientras pisoteba las secas ramas hasta hacerlas crujir bajo sus zapatos.Y el árbol miró la fresca belleza de las flores en el jardín, y luego se miró a sí mismo seco y deteriorado , y deseó no haber salido jamás de aquel oscuro rincón del desván. Recordó la frescura de los días que en su juventud pasó en el bosque, y la alegre víspera de Navidad, y los ratoncitos que con tanto gusto habían escuchado la historia de Klumpy-Dumpy.-¡Todo ha terminado! -se dijo-. ¡Lástima que no haya sabido gozar de mis días felices! ¡Ahora, ya se fueron para siempre!Y vino un sirviente que cortó el árbol en pequeños pedazos, hasta que hubo un buen montón que ardió en una espléndida llamarada bajo la enorme cazuela de cobre. Y el árbol gimió tan alto que cada uno de sus quejidos fue como un pequeño disparo. Al oírlo, los niños que jugaban acudieron corriendo y se sentaron junto al fuego; y mientras miraban las llamas, gritaban: “¡pif!, ¡paf!”, a coro. Pero a cada explosión, que era un hondo gemido, el árbol recordaba un día de verano en el bosque, o una noche de invierno allá afuera, cuando resplandecían las estrellas. Y pensó luego en la Nochebuena y en Klumpy-Dumpy, el único cuento de hadas que había escuchado en su vida y el único que podí
