Who's ass?

Yesterday I noticed that I hadn't wrote on my blog for over a week.  I had told myself that I would try to write on it at least once a week so I started trying to come up with an idea.  I tried to come up with something brilliant but all I could come up with was complaints.  I thought and thought, googled for ideas, gave up, cursed at the computer, cursed at myself and even asked someone to do a guest post for me (which I really hope she still does).  Needless to say, I had a very bad attitude!

Not long after I posted this on facebook...

Dear Universe,
I'm told I am stronger than you so you are more than welcome to keep messing with me but if you don't leave my little guy alone I'm going to be forced to kick your ass.
Have a nice day, Traci

Before long I got this response..

If you and the universe are one,
whose ass will you be kicking my dear?

Thank you Margaret Wheeler!  You are a great teacher (and friend).

Have a great day everyone!

A Japanese warrior was captured by his enemies and thrown into prison. That night he was unable to sleep because he feared that the next day he would be interrogated, tortured, and executed. Then the words of his Zen master came to him...

"Tomorrow is not real. It is an illusion.
The only reality is now."

Heeding these words, the warrior became peaceful and fell asleep.
