efficiency gone wrong

Oophs.. click, click, really! in my efficiency I deleted and cleared out mail that I had in my IN folder, then I manually cleared out the deleted file. Like DUH. What did I have for supper.?? I read the incoming, but some I had left to return to, I wanted to reply, or comment. Sorry… I had good intentions however, my efficiency manager, took a wrong turn in the gray matter.

Flexibly adapt to changes. the world around you changes, and so do you. enjoy the transformations and deal with them flexibly.

Hi, Hello there, I’m new to your area, are you available for a bit of a chat? Yes I know we’ve not met before, but I sure would like to get to know you a bit better.

True, I guess you recognize from my tone and the unfamiliar words that I’m not someone who is used to being up close and personal with creatures as beautiful and majestic as you two. I really do want to make friends?

Thank YOU for being so kind … allowing me into your personal space. Now that we’ve come this far, what can I do or say that will let you know I am appreciating your willingness to come closer.

Ahhhh the wire stretched just above the fence has an electric current, so be careful you say… Thank you, I appreciate your letting me know. I will be extra careful, I’ve picked some clover for you.. Allow me to share with you

Only one horse was interested in coming over to know more about me, which pleased me immensely since I know so little about these amazing animals. I did search the field around where we were for some bunches of clover, and he/she did partake. Once we established that rapport, the other one did come over but cautiously

.The dark fellow came over after a bit and shared in our little spur of the moment, “treatfest” I found out later that these two were new to the paddock having only just arrived the day prior to my visit.

Do i talk to strangers? yes I do. Given the right circumstances i am a person who likes to meet new people, I will say “Hi” share a smile or a brief greeting, I find it a wonderful way to spend time, sharing a positive back and forth with another “BEING”..

If you are cheerful, it will make everyone around you cheerful. Cheerful and happy people naturally attract others. Always smile and have a pleasant attitude.

Don’t give up! Stick with it, as many times as it takes. Sometimes you want to just throw in the towel and say, “I give up” but that’s the time for you t dig deep and push through. Your sincere efforts will invite a good outcome.

The Great Way – TAO – is not difficult,

for those who have no preferences.

When love and hate are both absent

everything becomes clear and undisguised.

Make the smallest distinction, however,

and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.

If you wish to ee the truth

then hold no opinions for or against

The struggle for what one likes and what

on dislikes, is the disease of the mind

brick-bicycle

When the deep meaning of things is not understood

the mind’s essential peace is disturbed  to no avail

The Way is perfect like vast space

where nothing is lacking and nothing is in excess.

Indeed, it is due to our choosing to accept or reject

that we do not see the true nature of things.

Live neither in the entanglements of outer things, or the in inner feelings of emptiness.

Be serene (without striving activity) in the oneness of things and such erroneous views will disappear by themselves.

When  you try to stop activity to achieve passivity your very effort fills you with activity.

As long as you remain in one extreme or the other.   You will never know Oneness.
