The Stupid “Magic Question”

Yesterday’s meet and greet. Like always, when you are in a conversation with someone you have just met, the first question to arise, or shall I say gets thrown at you( or for some, the first question you pitch at someone) is; “So, what do you do?” Now, not only have I always been thrown off by this question but, I’ve always found it to be a little invasive. I mean, what difference does it make to you what I do? If make love potion, it doesn’t mean that I have ever been “in love.”  If I am a hitman, that doesn’t mean that I’ll knock you off too. Also, what do I do when? Where? Like what do you mean? Now?… Seriously. Who cares?… Oh yeah, they do. Well, yesterday, like always, I had fun answering that question in many different ways.

My favorite:

Them: “Oh, so like, what do you do?

Me: “I’m retired.”

Them: (Surprised and intrigued) “Oh, really?”…. “So what did you used to do?”

Me: “Put up with bullshit…”

Them: (A little thrown off) ” Nice one. I may have to use that.”

My Sentiments Exactly…..

* The wise person acts without doing anything extra.

* Things arise, and she is appreciative.

* Things disappear, and she pays careful attention.

* She has great fulfillment, but possesses nothing.

* She acts without false expectations.

* When the work is done, she’s joyful and content.

*…….That is why it lasts forever.

BUIKA ! in concert. A great born day present… Each one of her songs sound classic. If I ever see her sing “live” again, there must be a huge dance floor. There’s no way I can sit down……Great performance filled with energy.

#The Three Little Pigs 

The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they “really” are.

Sharing your Love is your true Purpose of Life

"Many people wonder why they are here and what their mission is in life. I cannot answer that question directly but I can perhaps shed some light on why we are here collectively as well as individually. 

Just as the cells of a body that collectively hold the body together, we are collectively holding the planet together, to allow the planet to move up a notch in integrity, joy, and beauty. Collectively we are allowing the planet to have a direct conscious interaction with all the beings to lift us up into a different dimensional experience that is not purely three dimensional, but four dimensional, and eventually fifth dimensional.”

Fable of the happy man’s shirt

Happiness is an internal (rather than external) state.

 A great Indian prince had anything his heart desired.  However, he was not happy.  He possessed money, palaces, servants that made his life comfortable, entertainment…But he did not enjoy life. One day, he decided to find a solution to his problem and consulted his wise men.

-What should I do to be happy?

-Nobody is happy. Your Highness is asking for the impossible.

The prince was left in sadness. Soon one of the wise men approached him and offered his advice:

-If Your Highness wishes to be happy, Your Highness must put on the shirt of a happy man.

Straightaway, the Indian prince started the search for a happy man through his entire kingdom. But everyone offered excuses:

-I do not have enough to feed my family and I am sad.

-I am unhappy.

-I feel tired and ill.

Everybody seemed to lack something and the happy man could not be found. Rich and poor, young and old, men and women…, nobody was happy.

One day, the Indian prince walked by a cave, the dwelling place of a hermit. He had nothing, lived eating whatever he found, and spent his life in contemplation and meditation.

-Are you happy?-Asked the Indian prince.

-Completely happy!-was the answer.

-Then give me your shirt-said the prince.

The hermit looked tenderly into the prince’s eyes and said:

-I would gladly give it to you, but I am so poor that I do not have even one shirt.
