Re: Every day

I would love to empower MORE
people to do nothing. :)

Just last night, the 82 year
old who is living here wistfully
said, "I did not do anything today".
To which I asked her, "but didn't
you have fun doing that?". She
smiled broadly and said, "Yes".

You truly might clarify what you
mean by doing nothing. The zen
master in me also belly LAUGHS
when you admonish that things
will get worse. You know that
so often doing nothing will make
things better....

Ah, semantics...while I understand
YOUR point, I am compelled by a
fabulous cup of coffee to make my


Having dealt with so many people who
have serious issues with doing nothing
and an inability to stop doing what
they are doing...well, you can see
where that also can contribute to
challenges to health.

I would add, however, that one
should always be ready to act...

Your analogy about the bear and being
faster than the other guy provoked
thought, since I felt it would be
better that BOTH be faster than the
bear, or smarter. What if the guy
were your best friend?? If I were
with you, and I could arguably run
faster than you and a bear, if
the bear had you by the leg, my
emotions might give me pause and I
might have to use my gun or some
other way to distract the bear from
mauling you. I have serious doubts
that you also would run so swiftly
without feeling the breath of your
friend on your neck as he also
worked to outrun the bear.

Or if you had a bag of marshmallows,
or a hamburger to toss at the bear,
if hungry, and not an angry Mama Bear,
you both could mosey down the trail
whistling "Dixie". This also begs
the question of creativity. In healing
I find that often people are impatient,
and also when one thing does not work,
or the second or the third, they will
often feel the whole option of moving
through those failures to success to
be major issues. A point perhaps you
were trying to carve out with your
swordplay. I like that Edison made it
a point to say that he had to experience
many hundreds of failures before he
experienced success.

The moral~never, never, never, give up.

A REAL bear story~~

I had a good friend who was a lookout
high up in the mountains. He was out and
about and happened on a fresh heaping pile
of bear scat. It was so fresh, it was steaming
in the cold air. He remarked on how difficult
it was to decide which direction to run
since he had no idea where the bear was, but
that he imagined it close enough that its butt
was still soggy.
