TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – I love every quote of “Bucky’s” I’ve ever come across. What a man….what wisdom, what vision….

 

# 2 – Hey, why stop with a lake??…..Be an ocean!

An aging master grew tired of his apprentice’s complaints. One morning, he sent him to get some salt. When the apprentice returned, the master told him to mix a handful of salt in a glass of water and then drink it.

“How does it taste?” the master asked.

“Bitter,” said the apprentice.

The master chuckled and then asked the young man to take the same handful of salt and put it in the lake. The two walked in silence to the nearby lake and once the apprentice swirled his handful of salt in the water, the old man said, “Now drink from the lake.”

As the water dripped down the young man’s chin, the master asked, “How does it taste?”

“Fresh,” remarked the apprentice.

“Do you taste the salt?” asked the master.

“No,” said the young man. At this the master sat beside this serious young man, and explained softly,

“The pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less. The amount of pain in life remains exactly the same. However, the amount of bitterness we taste depends on the container we put the pain in. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things. Stop being a glass. Become a lake.”

 

# 3 – With the annual gift-giving season upon us, this seemed like a fitting article to highlight….

Do you attach strings to the gifts you give?

“Oh, how nice – just what I wanted. Thank you so much.” [Oh heck! How awful! What am I going to do with this thing now? It will have to be on display when she comes round or she’ll be hurt and annoyed.]

Have you ever been in this position? It can be very embarrassing, not to mention exasperating. It’s not fun to pretend you like it when really you can’t wait to dump it in the garbage or re-gift it to someone.

Getting the right gift for someone is also a difficult and stressful experience. I never know what to give JoAnn. And she’s no help. “I have all I need,” she says when I ask her what she wants for Christmas. (Last year she got a gift certificate for a spa day. She enjoyed it.)

But what is a gift? When is a gift not really a gift? There are three criteria for it to be a true gift:

1. You really do want to give it.
2. You are pretty sure that the person wants what you have to give.
3. No strings attached!

# 6 – Hmmmm, here’s an interesting one from Abe to contemplate when you think that the world is unfair….

If it is true — and it is — that when I — meaning any point of Consciousness — asks, it is given; then can you not feel the perfection of the selfish ego? Every vantage point gets to ask, and every vantage point is answered. And when everyone is individually choosing and Source is answering, then what could be a more balanced world?—Abraham
