Is Your Dog Nice?

Is Your Dog Nice?

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. ~ Victor Frankl

Is My Dog Nice?

You ask that with a straight and unknowing face while the fury of your dog is full-on orbiting in a gnashing bark-fest at the end of their leash? Is my dog nice? Yes! And, she’s 125-pounds of nice. Though, your dog’s an asshole! Why do people ask that? Oh, I see. People don’t see themselves when they brush their teeth in the morning. That must be it. People don’t see themselves. Hmmm. Well, maybe the Ego is NOT such a bad thing after all. Dismissing it is just another shame-born gesture? Ok, then. No matter. The Ego is a short-timer anyway. It’s my understanding that it comes on so strong, because it can only last 2 minutes at a time. So, having problems with it? Just do deep breathing for 3 minutes, and then don’t be surprised when you open back in and look around and go, “So, what was so pressing? What was the problem, again?”

Please Inspect Your Expectations

Your dog may be telling you more than you know. You…. may be telling yourself more than you know. Strike that. Aren’t you?!!

Note:

Note: This blog will now have more of a Bukowski bent. Unrepentant. Zero shame. Zero explanation. Not comfortable with that and yourself and owning your stuff? Cool. No judgment, though, I suggest you leave. I will not respond to further private messages or comments that play the explaining or demeaning cards either way. Please make your comments in public, so that you have to take responsibility for how they come across in the context of the rest of us here who care about shit n stuff, and sometimes even some stuffstance. Clear?!

And…

And, you lurkers who like x like 25 in under 12 seconds? Please go the fuck away, too. You are skewing my stats, and sending me an inordinate amount of bullshitic emails. I’d rather sincere engagement. 2 weeks from now, I will track through and remove you all. I will respect you more if you remove yourself. Tick tick tick… . . . . . . . . .

Don’t Believe Everything You Think

Don’t Believe Everything You Think

Don’t Believe Everything You Think*

Love it!

*Featured image, Don’t Believe Everything You Think, (c) Loui Jover, Australian Artist

More than just the title which kinda implies being an Inner Spectator, not my cup of tea, I am digging that more than just to deal with external forces, Victor Frankl’s words also apply to the title of this blog with Loui Jover’s artwork used as the Feature image, internally.

Can you engage your thoughts as your own Inner Customs Agent, just conduct the flow of un huh NOPEs off to back from whence they came? Or, just over to the seive of the recycle filter for compost? Heck, can you put the clutch in on your thoughts. Just watch the tach(ometer) spin up. If your thoughts get into the redline, (anxiety), not to worry. Just call out inside, “NOPE. HOLD IT. FREEZE RIGHT THERE ANSD PUT YOUR HANDS UP.” Am I suggesting to police your thoughts? Yes, I very much am Suggesting that. If not you, who Then? Take responsibility in there 1st, and less trip-ups happen out here, fewer interference patterns tumble out to interrupt the things you enjoy. Like a big fart at the opera, just mentioning for a friend.

Police your thoughts… NAH! Be their pre-school and graduate school and sandbox teachers. No shame or guilt, just listening. That way you can mess up in your own way, not just in ways that slow you down from dancing with your path. That way you can mess up in your own way instead up messing up yourself even more in other peoples’ ways.

The Grapevine

Word tends to get around in your head, and then you find you aren‘t Really alone, ever, and also that you are not the only one working to get the others to behave. Then, heck, weather washes through. And, trees with strong roots laugh and smile through storms, just say ‘Thank You” for the free power wash after.

Clutch the ripe and raw geode thoughts and begin to enact them in action. Or, put the clutch in on them to leave external inaction in their internal orbits and let them play the aged-like-fine-wine game. Who let the dogs out?! Be mindful of your inner casks, though. Not much develops on its own inside until you have set it in motion out here, too. Then, things can live and evolve in the back of your head so to speak.

As Above, So Below, How Do Your Roots Grow?

How does that contribute to and amplify your ability to take action?
