Law of the Garbage Truck

Law of the Garbage Truck

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly.

So I asked, 'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!' This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, 'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you. Don't take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so.....

'Love the people who treat you right.

Pray for the ones who don't - that they see the wisdom of their foolish ways'

Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!
The wiser the soul .... the greater the simplicity.

Meddle not in the affairs of Dragons for you are crunchy and good with salsa.

I used to be schizophrenic, but we're OK now.

In prayer you communicate with God, in meditation God communicates with you.

I think that was beautifully said. I'll be sure to honestly remember that when I get *beep* off.
Thanks,

Love and Light, RQ
To exercise qi flow without any kind of center is difficult.You can get to know qi and make it flow,but without a center you become passive,almost like a victim, and have hard time using qi according to your own will.Intention can be described as a direction,but it needs a starting point...Seika Tanden.
