In the1939 fantasy musical the "Wizard of OZ" Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, and Bert Lahr played the roles of three unforgettable characters. The Scarecrow, The Tin Man, and The Courageous Lion. Much like the "Scarecrow", there are times when most of us do not have the ability to access our thinking or reasoning brain. That is the one in the front of our brain as opposed to the back part of our brain which drives our impulsive and thoughtless behavior. Maybe it is just momentarily missing? Much like the "Tin Man", are tendency toward narcissism and the lack of compassion for both for ourselves and others may leave us with an chilled empty heart or a heart that just seems to be missing. And like the "Lion", there are times and situations in which our courage just is not available to us. These powerful characters have contributed to this movie being a classic and success throughout the the decades. They reflect the human condition and and if we give some thought to them they may help us be more mindful, kinder, and more decent people. The wonderful thing about these characters for me is that the characters are honest and insightful regarding themselves. We often tend to lack that insight and honesty. The wizards response to their request puts things in perspective.
