Midas Touch if you haven’t heard of it, is from Greek mythology. Referring to King Midas of Phrygia part of the ancient Kingdom of Anatolia. It was the dominant kingdom in Asia Minor from c.1200-700BC. Having Persian and Roman borders at the time. Centring on the Sangarios River, eventually being part of the conquests of the time.
Phrygian power reached its peak late in the 8th century under King Midas. His story is a tale of avarice. He was granted a wish from Dionysus for finding Silenus sleeping in Midas’s rose gardens. The following morning, after being granted the ability to turn whatever he touched to gold, King Midas understood the warning around his wish. His food turned to gold, as did his daughter on embracing her. Adoring of his daughter the King became distraught, in fear and despair he prayed for the wish to be removed. Dionysus directed him to wash his hands in the Pactolus River, returning his hand to normal, as did all things he touched. This resulted in a great shift within King Midas to love and appreciation. He grew to become more generous and grateful.
Not being able to recognise what is a blessing or a curse is often a central part of how we try to process and create solutions. Midas was blinded by desire that he did not willingly control. This in turn lead to what could be called an imbalanced negotiation. The results on him became devastating, through the mercy of a second chance he was able to see clearly what was of real value to him.
