Barking up the wrong tree

A wise man once said

"There seem to two kinds of searchers: those who seek to make their ego something other than it is, i.e. holy, happy, unselfish (as though you could make a fish unfish), and those who understand that all such attempts are just gesticulation and play-acting, that there is only one thing that can be done, which is to disidentify themselves with the ego, by realizing its unreality, and by becoming aware of their eternal identity with pure being." - Fingers Pointing Toward the Moon by Wei Wu Wei

Argh! I obviously belong to the first group of searchers! Can one seriously not make a fish, unfish? Why is it we have this silly ego in the first place then?

Break that wall!

Say YES!

That's it.
Just that.
Say it over and over and over again until that wall breaks.

Someone said this to me when I was trying to do something and failing for no apparent reason. I was seemingly sabotaging myself from doing it.

The instruction was to visualize the word YES! Visualize it, feel it, chant it over and over again. With no thought to the unsolvable difficult task....and what'd'u'know? The brady thing works.

Never have three letters had so much power.

inspired to find MY quirky dance

My friend was telling about this Matt guy who videoed himself dancing in different sites around the world, with no money...and ended up getting sponsored to do more traveling and more dancing. I don't know why...but THAT inspires me like HELL (hell being a good thing here)! The video is fantastic as well...how beautiful is mother earth!
