#116 Standing Still    June 21, 2006

boydog116  B: If I stand like this for a long time, a bird might land on me...I hope. B: Having a wild animal's trust is the greatest feeling. D: it's already been three hours! no feeling is that good. D: hey! wow! i was wrong.

Does anyone else dream about having a bird land on your finger? Or a squirrel sit on your shoulder? Or a butterfly rest on your nose? Don't you think that would be great?! Sadly I've never experienced that joy. But maybe if I keep waiting and hoping something great like that will happen to me.

It is one of those things that we cannot force to happen. There is a balance of patience, stillness, and time. You cannot will something as free as a bird to decide to land where you want it. It will simply go there when it is time. For the boy, the time was not now. Yet the dog, who waited mearly a moment, experienced the bliss. Cheer up boy. You're only lacking in the timing of events. Maintain the patience and stillness.
