Guardian of the Flaming Pearl

The drawing was done early this morning, after doing the Awakening the Dragon that I learned from "The Celtic Spirit" the story to follow is a combination of tales that I have read or heard.
The Guardian of the Flaming Pearl

I was born in the year of the Dragon. It is said that dragons where of a time of chaos, a time other then that of man. The Eastern cultures believe the Dragon symbolizes the essence of the spiritual half of the cosmos. The Dragon breath in -takes the chaos of the unformed potentials and breaths out the order of our nature. The Dragons represent chaos (I have found this funny as I was once told I was too chaotic always changing) and the Dragons bring eternal change.
The Flaming Pearl represents man's awakening conscience.

Now my twist to the tales of Dragon;
In years beyond recording Dragons were the seers of what others cannot see, the spirit of eternal change they were born out of a time of chaos and destruction, they were Guardians and they became the guardians of man, their most precious treasure was the Flaming Pearl.
Man believed it would multiply what ever it touched and Kings sought it to increase their wealth.

The Dragons had protected man from the wraths of Gods many died in the fight for humanity, for the search for the pearl. The Dragons grew impatient of man's infancy they took counsel and decide man would not see the Flaming Pearl, in man's infancy the pearl was hidden in view of all mankind, the guardians shifted into their human appearance and walked among the children.

The Dragons watched, they taught and soon they saw some men transcended infancy to maturity and new possibilities of life opened but not all found the Flaming Pearl and those who did marveled that they had not recognized it before.

In finding the Flaming Pearl (Wisdom) man learned to awaken the dragon, the life giving energy within themselves and all living things. Looking into the depths of our soul we hear the song of our true selves we pass beyond the limits of our body and transcend to the level of our elders the Guardians of the Flaming Pearl ,the Spirit of eternal change, the Spark of light from the creation of the Universe and The Hope of Tomorrow.
