Truth and Wild Consequences

Never overlook a good thing.   Whether it be a smile, a stranger holding a door, a soft ‘excuse me’, or a gentle glance.   These good things fill the bucket .. the huge vessel of life.

Likewise, do not overlook a bad thing.  Like being being yelled at by a passing vehicle, ignored by someone, or being flipped off with a rude gesture.  These good things ignite the bucket .. enraging it.

Inhale deeply and exhale completely at the bad things.   Smile softly and say a mantra, like “Metta”, or “Shanti”, or “Amen”.   Be the change you want to see in others.
