Sometimes, humor is the only thing….

July 14, 2015

Greetings,

I laughed so hard at this one, had to share….

But before I do, how?

Very interesting times for me here, personally and more especially deeply personally.

The REAL-i-zation tap is on full open as I approach my 49th solar anniversary here.

real-i-zation like this:

a) Muscle memory is never a gift, always a practice. Talent is epi-genetic, it’s expression requires a little blood, sweat and tears. I saw this in stark light watching an on-line interview with BB King, the blues great. He must have been in his sixties in the interview. And the interviewer asked him, so what scales do you play every day and how do you warm up for a show? And this sweet, humble, intelligent and deeply musical gent starts to describe his couple of hours a day doing chromatic scales.

WHUT? BB King STILL DOES SCALES? EVERYDAY??? And the same scales as me?

b) Everyone is doing the best they can and/or know how to do. No one is not trying, only trying as best they know. I can even stretch this as far as to say that no “bad” person thinks they are being bad. Everyone is doing the best they know.

As a result, it does nothing to flog or otherwise rush anyone. Everyone and everything unfolds in it’s time.

The only “time” or “beat” or “pace” we can control is our own. That is where it keeps looping back to. Every time. It’s me. ONLY me. My world is a sometimes maddening and frustrating place, but in the center, at the pivot is ONLY ME.

I move my world. In fact, I bring my world into existence. Changing my world has ONLY ONE lever/button and it lies inside me, for me to find, reach and touch.

c) It’s a vibrational world. Imagine a still string. Put a piece of paper on it and pluck the string, off goes the paper. Ergo, things can stick to low/slow vibrating things, but raise the vibration and things begin to fly off.

Analogically, so with our lives, minds and bodies…

This gives two very simple tasks to us: Strengthen the body and raise our vibration.

Interesting thing about deep in-sights is that they come with a tool-kit. Do this, this and this…

So I have been…

And it’s been like MAGIK! 😉

NOW for the humor….

ALERTS TO THREATS IN EUROPE: BY JOHN CLEESE

by John Cleese – British writer, actor and tall person

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Syria and have therefore raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.” The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from “Tiresome” to “A Bloody Nuisance.” The last time the British issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.

The Scots have raised their threat level from “Pissed Off” to “Let’s get the Bastards.” They don’t have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.

The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from “Run” to “Hide.” The only two higher levels in France are “Collaborate” and “Surrender.” The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France ‘s white flag factory <wink>, effectively paralyzing the country’s military capability.

Italy has increased the alert level from “Shout Loudly and Excitedly” to “Elaborate Military Posturing.” Two more levels remain: “Ineffective Combat Operations” and “Change Sides.”

The Germans have increased their alert state from “Disdainful Arrogance” to “Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs.” They also have two higher levels: “Invade a Neighbour” and “Lose.”

Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels .

The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from “No worries” to “She’ll be alright, Mate.” Two more escalation levels remain: “Crikey! I think we’ll need to cancel the barbie this weekend!” and “The barbie is cancelled.” So far no situation has ever warranted use of the last final escalation level.

A final thought – ” Greece is collapsing, the Iranians are getting aggressive, and Rome is in disarray. Welcome back to 430 BC”.

🙂

Meanwhile, on good days, I get lucky and Yoda “licks” me into shape…
