Sometimes we become really angry at someone or an event and blame them for our anger and how bad we feel. Sometimes we give credit to someone for bringing out love and compassion in us.
Is it fair to blame or give credit to others without understanding our own role?
They may be a catalyst. The anger or love came from us not from them!
Read the story of the bird I observed last week. What was the catalyst and where did the joy and dance originate from?
The Bird flies into his lover.
He touches her beaks.
He dances for her.
He sings to her.
He mates with her.
Exhausted and happy he rests on a nearby tree.
The shiny mirror is un-phased.
There is no-one but the bird and his reflection.
