jumping jack

the difficulty is not
making evasive maneuvers when someone else is upset 
by rebuffing their airwaves of agony
but rather
to recognize it and trying to ease them by letting the vibes
move around you like a jumpy dog.

we don't have to immerse ourselves in someone's else's field of misery
to feel all its implications
in order to understand them better and what to do about it.
But it usually happens that way, regardless. 

Look the hurt person or dog in the eye. Listen. Talk a little bit.
Why would you not be there to make them feel better if they need it? 
And who's to say you have better luck with a frantic giraffe next time?

No. Often things are too serious already. We try too hard. Does that really help? Hm?

Generally we find we have to make light of a situation. Being stuck in the mud only teaches us to get very muddy boots (I literally experienced this yesterday when my husband and I were building enclosures for our two wild piglets). Better to have a laugh and move on.

I like to share this video today which I think teaches us to never complain again. There is no use for such a pass time although all of us have done this from time to time. How do you feel today?

all is well

Talking is deleted
Words transform
faster then I can think them

I sense images
and feel sounds
whirling around
like a school of fish,
condensing the sea of being.

I can stand there and
hear the loudness of it.
Bearing the weight of them all

Yet I wait
and accept them in.
Capital letters tumble through me
some fart on exit.
Others simply leave quietly.

All is well in the world.

Seeking something is giving that something
First and foremost

If you find it too hard to open up
try appreciating it

and from a speck it'll become a seed in the wind
it will start growing and

Blowing a gale
and coming back to you


In you.
