Small fish smart

A fisherman drew in a net that he had just cast, and it happened to be full of a variety of fish. The little one among the fish fled to the bottom and slipped out of the porous mesh, but the large one was caught and was laid stretched out in the boat. A way to be safe and clear of trouble is to be small, but seldom will you see a person large in reputation who escapes dangers.

(its from the Greek literature, author of the fable is Babrius)

Zero questions leads

 There is no “Any question?”, like they uses to ask nowadays. There is no question left ununswered. In the place where more inside knowledge is going to be disclosed questions vanish, opinions vanish too. There is only room for that which is natural and spotaneous:  the growth. Have you heard about it? As a little girl, my parents were always ready to correct when necessary. With different styles, they did it like skilled artists who know exactly which color and which tecnique. Correction is essentially a  must when u are small and if originates from a heartful, patient, creative source then it will convert in effective and prosperous ways and styles.

Later on there is no more correction, at one point the power of self correcting will be already blossomed and is now nicely settling in.  No more parents or parents-substitute will explicitely correct your behaviour within a chat, a phone call or email because its operating by itself. Maybe also because there were no questions fom the very beginning. Zero “??????” and more acceptance. More acceptance leads to more self correction. And more self correction leads.

Motor force in the background

Forget the past forget the past. What is this? …Erase the past? …Understand the past? …Give dignity to the past? Past is a source of power, a spiral of gems waiting to be lucidated and finally sparkle in all their splendor and sacrality. Each person has a special background because each person is special. Two Mondays ago i has the fortune to walk around Rome, the only world city where history comes alive and you cannot forget your past. Rome sucks you back wherever you are born and whatever is your motherlanguage. Rome does make your inside bell ringing: Love Your Past, Give it the Dignity. This is why Rome is awsome and this is also why I am pervaded by immense gratitude fora pretty long Roman pastlife. She understands me. Of course my visit was not only for pleasure causes but there was a productive reason linked to important working documents that She was still taking care of. It was now the time to be fully entitled the predicted sole owner of these Papers. And there i was enjoying the renewed past. When we k.n.o.w. where we are coming from, extraordinary motor forces get ignited. Never forget who we really are if we want to take the chance to drive. 

Narrow minded character of metropolitan big cities

A very functional & natural way how huge cities work! Big metropolis are always depicted  as intercultural areas where the most open minded brains from different cultures come and join to lift the standards of the city up. At all kinds of level: creative, educational, urban…Hundreds of thousands of projects from all sides are regularly thrown into the big melting pot for being cooked and then digested not only by the resident population but also and especially to inspire who live not in the city. Sometimes i read blogs of people who come to Hong Kong for work only or for holidays and  project an image of freedom and amazing inspiration about the city. A superficial image or better half image. The counterpart is told above in the title. Bliss of the balance. Extreme openness must be in harmony with extreme closure. Very cool.

There will be the most narrow minded people in a highly populated city. It s part of her beauty and it s totally part of her gwrowth. You will be amazed. You need to grasp both parts and make them hugging each other 😉

Six common ways (or conditioning) how couples manage the union

In its own way each couple is different. A man and a woman living together have something that other couples do not have. That something is quite impossible to identify and it can be the result of a mix of features or one single vision that works like a glue between the two personalities. There is also the fact that each couple is like one living body constantly evolving and constantly changing… or degenerating too, it depends. I am always intrigued by couple relationship dynamics first of all from mine itself and then also from outside, friends, relatives…. Infact some couples can be used as reference or models. Okey, this is my brief musing of the day. On a  most evident point of view there is that “cool” conditioning which is there to create the condition for the couple to be together. See few of them:

  1. interests, hobby: trendy! experiencing the emotion of travelling often to explore new places and cultures together. Or to go skiing on weekends. Or to party alooot. When we cultivate  a passion in common we have this oneness feeling, like we are one with the partner. Sharing interests is a key for our companionship, otherwise we would feel like two strangers.
  2. church activities: getting really popular these ones! weekly meeting for fellowships and meetings with our friends: we cannot live without it because this is what gives us the strenght and the nourishment  to grow together, appreciate life for every little thing, accept the challenges and what life has to offer.
  3. life philosophy: we dont really know what is uniting us but we guess it’s the perspective and the way we look at every day in our life; the concern we have for each other and the nature. yes! we feel very much connected with the nature, we feel comfortable together and we tink at the same way on lots  and lots and lots of topics and issues.
  4. work: we are working in the same field since long, we are the best partners and complement each other perfectly for the role. So we are very happy to be also merried because there is a special understanding which comes from our common experiences, we are able to anticipate the other’s thoughts and ideas, flowing with his/her creativity at the same time, it’s really thrilling, it gives lots of energy!
  5. tradition and family: our parents got  married in the same style, this is very typical in our countryand works for the betterment of the family. We share the same system of belief and grew up with it, this is the base we stand on: our families are now related and very happy for us, they gave the blessing for a fulfilled merried life, nothing is more important. 
  6. culture and language: we come from the same country, a similar lifestyle, similar friends; we speak the same language at all levels; it’s great we can discuss stuff, ideas, make plans; it works smooth cause we have the same mind form, guess we have absorbed it during all this time until we met; culture is the key, we have lots to share, a full background which gives that feeling of strenght and unity.

 

Where virtual games lead thru herbed halibut and new catastrofi

 

Popping by hub’s facebook page briskly reading “he just whipped up some fresh herbed halibut at some Cafe place” . Adorable Hub whipping fish at the stove in a Cafe’? No no, cannot be him. Or may be in his dream. So i left him a comment: can you do it at home for 1 time pleeeease? At least it will sound more enthusiastic than cooking halibut thru the Virtual cafe on facebook. I really really want to know where virtual games lead our mind and what is so attractive in them. The answer is nothing and it depends also on the time people spent on them, how big is the portion of our Complete attention stickying on them.

Instead of playing virtually you can just do it. Learn a recipe, have fun in the kitchen, chat with the fish shopper at the market, make up some relationship, and cook your halibut. It s just a fishy example but can be applied to virtual pokers, real estate, farmville, fashion shop: virtual games do cover all kinds of real world fields. They relax the mind? They alienate a person from human contacts? They give some distraction during the working time? They develop modern catches in the body & soul? You will know the answer soon while you play them.  

In addition, what is the percentage of attention = time, drooling on the end of the world stuff, the maya calendar, the astronomy and the prophecies; there is also a mad-catastrofe-effective movie called 2012 on that; how about focusing on exploration of divinity of the present world? the divinity of the human abilities and potential? …Like cooking some fresh halibut for example.

But the main point is of immense capacity. The whipping herbed fish is another story. An the end of the world stuff are a waste of sacred time. maybe  they are also connected.
