    SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO — What Makes You Think?

    NOTE: PART OF END OF TALK WAS CUT OFF ... BUT THE POINT GETS ACROSS!

    There's an old Chinese story about the son and the broken leg ...

    A farmer had only one horse, and one day the horse ran away. The neighbors came to console him over his terrible loss. The farmer said, "What makes you think it is so terrible?"

    A month later, the horse came home--this time bringing with her two beautiful wild horses. The neighbors became excited at the farmer's good fortune. Such lovely strong horses! The farmer said, "What makes you think this is good fortune?"

    The farmer's son was thrown from one of the wild horses and broke his leg. All the neighbors were very distressed. Such bad luck! The farmer said, "What makes you think it is bad?"

    A war came, and every able-bodied man was conscripted and sent into battle. Only the farmer's son, because he had a broken leg, remained. The neighbors congratulated the farmer. "What makes you think this is good?" said the farmer.


    Today’s Sit-A-Long video follows at this link. Remember: recording ends soon after the beginning bells; a sitting time of 20 to 35 minutes is recommended.

    Glad to hear the kitty's home and recuperating! Indeed, animals can teach all of us about life.

    Thank you, Jundo. It is a powerful lesson that the Black Plague led to the Renaissance. Good, bad, pleasant, unpleasant, learning to accept life as it is (although shaping life, too).

    Ha. Thank you. Even I have forgotten some of these old talks.

    (And if any you find are best forgotten, please skip those).

    Thank you. Our cat was hit last week and was a good lesson for my son as well. Not just on safety but forgiveness.
