Humor & Wisdom 4/09

Hi all,

I am passionate about our spiritual evolution and not taking ourselves too seriously as we evolve.  So, here is a little of both:

First, the humor:

A 1st grade school teacher had twenty-six students in her class.  She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb.  It’s hard to believe these were actually done by first graders.  Their insight may surprise you.

1.  Don’t change horses….until they stop running.

2.  Strike while the…bug is close.

3.  It’s always darkest before…Daylight Saving Time.

4.  Never underestimate the power of…termites.

5.  You can lead a horse to water but…How?

6.  Don’t bite the hand that…looks dirty.

7.  No news is…impossible

8.  A miss is as good as a…Mr.

9.  You can’t teach an old dog new…Math

10.  If you lie down with dogs, you’ll…stink in the morning.

11.  Love all, trust…Me.

12.  The pen is mightier than the…pigs.

13.  An idle mind is…the best way to relax.

14.  Where there’s smoke there’s…pollution.

15.  Happy the bride who…gets all the presents.

16.  A penny saved is…not much.

17.  Two’s company, three’s…the Musketeers.

18.  Don’t put off till tomorrow what…you put on to go to bed.

19.  Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and…You have to blow your nose.

20.  There are none so blind as…Stevie Wonder.

21.  Children should be seen and not…spanked or grounded.

22.  If at first you don’t succeed…get new batteries.

23.  You get out of something only what you…See in the picture on the box

24.  When the blind lead the blind…get out of the way.

25.  A bird in the hand…is going to poop on you.

And the WINNER and last one!

26.  Better late than…Pregnant

And now, the wisdom:

My latest theme I am playing with for myself is to let go of my agenda for whatever experience I think I should be having or want to be having, and just be vulnerably congruent with whatever the deepest experience I am actually having.  Internal experiences fire off faster than I can control, so why not be in compassion for myself with whatever has just ignited, rather than thinking it should somehow be some other experience?   “Vulnerably” is the key that opens the door into my heart so that I can be with my experience through the eyes of love rather than seeing it from my head and then judging it.  And “congruent” allows me to be unified inside myself so that I am not in any duality that can struggle against my experience.
This frees me up to just be a human being without any agenda to be “more evolved,” or somehow better than I am.  It is a form of unconditional love for myself.  And it gets rid of spiritual goals:


The only difference between

Enlightened persons and

Unenlightened ones is

The enlightened ones

Accept themselves

Exactly as they are…
