Do You Spend Your Life Floating On de Nile River?

Do you spend your life floating on *denial* river?
Do you deny you can do things? Do you THINK things are tough,
so you don't do them?
*I can't do that.* *I can't use the computer.* *I can't take on that
You feel you are too busy, so you deny yourself the opportunity to
learn to live a full life.
It's your thoughts that keep you where you are -- or take you where
you want to go. Check out ALL negative thoughts and see if they
really apply to the situation. If you don't, you could end up like the
man in the mountains who went to find a guru.
He climbed up the mountain, found the guru and said, "Guru, my
mother-in-law has just moved in with us. We live in a one room hut.
What am I to do? I hate my mother-in-law."
The guru says, "Do you have a goat?"
The man says, "Yes, I have a goat."
"Move the goat into the hut with you. Come back and see me in a
The man leaves, does the guru's bidding, and comes back in a week.
"Guru, things did not get better. They got worse. I not only have my
mother-in-law in the hut with us, but now we have a goat. I really hate
The guru responds, "Do you have chickens?"
"Yes, I have chickens."
"Move the chickens into the hut with you. Come back and see me in a
The beleaguered man leaves to do the Guru's bidding. He comes back in
"Guru, I cannot stand it. Things are definitely worse. I now not only have
my mother-in-law, whom I hate, in the hut with us, but now we have a
goat AND chickens. I really, really hate my mother-in-law."
The guru says, "Do you have a pig?"
The man sighed. "Yes, I have a pig."
"Move the pig into the hut with you. Come back and see me in a week."
The befuddled man leaves to do the Guru's bidding. He comes back in
"Guru, I cannot stand it. Things have gotten much worse. I now not
only have my mother-in-law, whom I truly hate, in the hut with us, but
now we have a goat AND chickens AND a pig. I really, truly hate my
The guru says, "Do you have kittens?"
The man's eyes dart around miserably. "Yes," he answers. "I have
"Put the kittens in the hut with you. Come see me in a week."
The poor, dejected man leaves. He comes back in a week.
"Guru, please. It has gotten worse and worse. I now not only have my
mother-in-law, whom I cannot tell you how much I hate, in the hut with
us, but now we have a goat AND chickens AND a pig AND kittens. I
really, truly hate my mother-in-law. I am serious."
The guru says, "Do you have a dog?"
The man's eyes went up to the sky. When he found no divine help there,
he sighed. "Yes, I have a dog." His shoulders shuddered at what, by
now, he knew the guru would say.
"Put the dog in the hut with you. Come back in a week."
The poor, dejected man leaves. He comes back in a week.
"Guru, I cannot take it anymore. I have not only my mother-in-law
in the hut with us, but now we have a goat AND chickens AND a
pig AND kittens AND a dog." He shook his head. A tear trickled
down both his cheek, because he knew the guru was going to say
The guru smiled. "Now, take out all the animals. Come and see me
in a week."
The bewildered man blinked in confusion as he left. He came back
in a week.
His step was spry, his smile wide. "Hello, Guru," he called before
he even got to the top of the mountain. "It's a beautiful day."
The guru asked, "And how is your mother-in-law, my son?"
"Oh, you mean that fine lady living with us? Truthfully, she is not
The guru said, "You have learned much, my son."
Sometimes, we need to KNOW we don't have it so bad, before we
can travel the road to success.
