Willies Ways

Yes, Willie. As in the one and only Willie Nelson.

He's got a new book out and I picked it up at the library cause I liked the title - The Tao of Willie - A guide to the Happiness in your Heart.

I always want more happiness, so that intrigued me.

It was very cool! Many things of his past and what he has learnt, full of funny jokes and great thought provoking things.

Some of Willie's Ways....

- The main thing is to follow the Golden Rule - Do unto others. If you follow this rule, I think life is so much nicer and that what you put into life comes back to you 10 fold - including the bad. If you project and think bad - that's what you will receive. It's so simple really.

This also follows the rule of KARMA - What goes around comes around.

-Drink lots of water - the earth is 75% water and so is your body - we need to replenish that.

-A quote " Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb, but how well you bounce"

- To always live in the moment and in a place called NOW.

"The easiest mistake on Earth is to forget to appreciate what you have right now"

Lots of other neat things too. It's always nice to read something and have it resonate with you and make you realize to take notice.

I'll leave you with this Cherokee story from the book....

The Cherokee believed that within each person was a battle between two wolves.

Sitting with his grandson, a grandfather explained that one of the wolves was evil and was driven by anger, envy, regret, ego and the worship of war.

The other wolf was good, and was driven by love, hope, compassion, and the promise of peace.

Thinking about the wolves already growing within him, the boy asked, "Grandfather, which wolf wins?"

And the old man replied," The one you feed."

Which wolf do you feed?
