    Default Training Elephants?

    To prevent the elephants from running away, captive baby elephants are tied by the leg to an immovable log.In time they realise that any effort to move the log is futile. As adults they can be tied to even a small stick as they have accepted the idea of being held captive.

    Now the question,
    IF symbolically the elephants are taken as humans, then what could the Log/stick be??
    is it religion? or spirituality? or is it something else?
    can the chains be broken?

    I think the stick is different for each person. Everyone has a wall or a bondage that they can't seem to get through. For example, I sought love wherever I could find it.... and I usually found it in the wrong place. Thinking the worst in myself always led me to seek out people who were lower than me in some way, which only brought me down further. Now, I'm not talking in a spiritual sense, here, so don't get pissy. Sometimes it takes a shock, something dramatic, to get people out of their cycle, that's what it took for me.
    For general humanity, as you are asking, I really don't know what it could be.
