Moonrise

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

And then I get to thinking........

After I ranted yesterday, I went out for a bit and meditated.....that is almost always when the magic happens, when I just calm my mind....and this showed up.....

TWO FRIENDS WERE WALKING
THROUGH THE DESERT .
DURING A POINT IN THE
JOURNEY, THEY HAD AN
ARGUMENT.

ONE FRIEND
SLAPPED THE OTHER ONE
IN THE FACE IN ANGER......

THE ONE WHO WASN'T SLAPPED
WAS HURT, BUT WITHOUT
SAYING ANYTHING........

HE WROTE IN THE SAND ,
"TODAY MY BEST FRIEND
SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE".

THEY KEPT ON WALKING,
UNTIL THEY CAME UPON AN OASIS,
WHERE THEY DECIDED
TO TAKE A BATH .

THE ONE WHO HAD BEEN
SLAPPED BECAME STUCK IN THE
MIRE AND STARTED DROWNING,
BUT HIS FRIEND SAVED HIM.

AFTER HE RECOVERED FROM
THE NEAR DROWNING,
HE WROTE ON A STONE,

"TODAY MY BEST FRIEND
SAVED MY LIFE"

THE FRIEND WHO HAD SLAPPED
AND THEN SAVED HIS BEST FRIEND
ASKED HIM, "AFTER I HURT YOU,
YOU WROTE IN THE SAND AND NOW,
YOU WRITE ON A STONE..... WHY?"

"WHEN A FRIEND HURTS ME,
I WRITE IT DOWN
IN SAND, WHERE THE WINDS OF
FORGIVENESS WILL EVENTUALLY ERASE IT AWAY.....

BUT, WHEN SOMEONE DOES
SOMETHING GOOD FOR ME,
I ENGRAVE IT IN STONE
WHERE NO WIND
CAN EVER ERASE IT"

LEARN TO WRITE
YOUR HURTS IN
THE SAND AND TO
CARVE YOUR
BENEFITS IN STONE........

*end philosophy*
Have a wondrous day....it's the Season, after all......

That works for awhile. But once a line is crossed, and you are on the bad list, you stay there, not until you die, but way past that.
