Your Animal Spirit for Jan. 31 is The Ant

Your Animal Spirit for Today
January 31, 2014

Ant

Ant is dutiful, patient, industrious and focused. If you ever put an obstacle in the middle of an ant trail, you’ll notice that ant will go over it, around it, or even under it—but ant will NOT let the obstacle drive him backwards. Above all, ant is a team player, and knows that if each member of the team does his assigned task, the team will succeed. Do you have goals that are best met by team effort? If so, get the other players off the bench and let them into your game.

Empty the Cup

Empty the Cup

 

A western scholar once visited a Zen master and asked to receive teachings. The master invited the scholar to tea, then proceeded to pour a cup for him. He did not stop when the cup was full but continued pouring until the tea overflowed. His point was that if a seeker’s mind is preoccupied, there is no room for wisdom. To gain in insight we must empty the cup of the mind, rather than pour precepts into it.
