“A Tree in the Sky and Simple Things in Life!” #132

Life is simply complex — with a lot of happiness in the middle!

First, consider the complexities of your life a decade or two ago… and how beautifully simple they appear to you today.

Next, imagine awaking tomorrow as an immensely happy and fulfilled 95-year-old with bookshelves of stories worth sharing, but no teeth… 

Now, take the first bite out of this crisp apple. 

Enjoy the simple things and endure the complicated ones, we’ll see both differently in time! 😉

“Conquering Cat-sized Squirrels and the EGO!” #131

Winning the battle in the backyard is not so dissimilar from winning the one within!

The creature initiates its taunt with a leap off the ground that could out-rival the height of a third grader’s smile.

It latches its tiny arms around the 6-foot iron-rod with the ferocity of a concerned mother, then begins to scale.

Its approach to humanity and gravity is one of defiance, as it navigates upward with the agility of nature’s first Ninja Warrior. 

Finally, while upside down, the squirrel finishes its feast out of the “squirrel-proof” bird-feeder. Then struts toward the coy pond with its tail in the air and, without breaking eye contact, begins quenching its thirst while gnawing away at my ego.

Winning the battle in your own backyard is not so dissimilar from conquering the battle within!

Time to tackle the Ego!

…a REAL human nature story.

A Reflection of Us: 

Every single gesture can change a life;
and a single moment is not made of time.
If one person needs help, then others do too;
World Peace is a decision beginning with you.

The Tallest Tree had a Striking Ego

The Tallest Tree once looked down upon the ones smaller than he, then got struck by lightning!

“The Tallest Tree
once looked down upon
the ones smaller than he.”

Reflection:

Appreciate all that you have;
Be humble for all that you are.
Learn for yourself, not for the class;
And only strive to raise your own bar.

For all that you were & are just now;
Will inevitably, like all things, be struck down.

Ego is the useless residue left behind with all else removed.

Inspired by the Nature of Life

The meaning of life: we search for it on our computer, but we find it in our NATURE!

The Meaning of Life:
We search for it on our computer;
We find it in our nature!

Some celebrate, some refuse – but let’s all learn and/or REMEMBER what this holiday and the art of leverage is all about…. Continue reading “Could the Sweetest Day be a Sour Scam?”

The Sleepless Dreamer

while all the sheep are sleeping, the dreamers stay awake;

the herd is worked by the game the dreamers came to play.

the dreamers go from a knight at night, to a daze by day;

swim then sink, they wait to love as sleepers wade in hate.

as the sleepers keep on sleeping, chained in Plato’s cave;

dreamers keep on dreaming ‘cuz it’s only too late to wait.

from white to black: in great dismay, light was made to fade;

but the dreamers find that silverline within the shades of gray.
