Hide and Seek

A father related how one of his son’s favorite games was “hide and seek” – his son always hid. The game always went the same: Dad always counted to 100 by 5’s and then would shout out, “Here comes Daddy to find you Tommy.” And Tommy would always hide in the same room and the same spot – but of course Dad always went through the motions of looking in just about every other room.

He’d go into one of the bedrooms and loudly proclaim “I wonder if Tommy is under the bed?” Down the hall he could hear the barely suppressed giggles of his child as he lifted up the sheets. “I wonder if he’s in the closet?” Again giggles from the other room. Making his way into the bathroom, Dad would say “I wonder if he’s in the shower?” Giggles. “I wonder if he’s in the toilet?” as he lifted the seat. The giggles were getting louder. Out in the hallway now, the father proclaimed “I wonder where Tommy could be?” And at that moment Tommy would burst out of his parents’ bedroom crying “Here I am Daddy, here I am!” and throw himself into his Dad’s waiting arms. The Father recalled telling his son “But, Tommy, that’s not how the game is played.” But Tommy didn’t care – that’s how he played the game. For the object of the game to Tommy was in being found and then to rush into his father’s arms.

Slowing Down

Slowing Down

A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something. As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag’s side…

Beings of Light

Beings of Light

We are not designed to grow old; we are created to grow up and out as beings of light. Some would call this the lightness of being or taking yourself lightly. Whether or not you believe in the Bible, when the Creator said, “Let there be light,” the Creator was talking about you. Even Jesus…

Are You Awake?

Are You Awake?

First, you must realize you are asleep, then you are awake. Then you must die, so you can be born. You can not be born until you die and you can not die until you wake. Jungian psychology I have always enjoyed the story of a multitude of people with Buddha wanting to know how…
