It's best to not always be truthful


"Half a truth is better than sleeping alone" (Guru Eduardo)

There is a an old story of a monk who was meditating happily in the sun outside his cave.  A beautiful but very distressed damsel came running up to him. "Help me," she cried. "There's a very bad man, a robber, who is trying to kill me. Please let me hide in your cave." Without waiting for a reply the girl ran into his cave and hid in the dark interior.

The monk had not said a word and, although slightly perturbed, he continued to meditate. A few minutes later a wild-looking man with a patch on one eye came galloping up on a black horse. When he saw the monk, he stopped and yelled at him, "Have you seen a young woman? I must find her." Being a celibate, the monk quite calmly said to the robber, "What would I be doing with a woman?" To which the man galloped on.

The monk did not lie, nor did he honestly answer the question. However, by avoiding the truth he saved three lives: the girl's; his own and the robbers. The robber would have had to kill him for being a witness; and the robber would have been killed as punishment.

MORAL....Being too moral is bad for your health.

A Life Lesson


It would be great to say that I was wise when I was younger but that was not so.   This is a lesson I've learned late!

Rules of the World (guru edition)

Many years ago I came across a list entitled, 'Rules of the World'.  It purported to explain how the world worked.  If you followed it's teachings then your life would be much easier.   I thought it was excellent but being me, I couldn't resist the temptation to write my own set of rules.  

Here is my creation!  Let me know what you think?


"life is a game
play it well
and have some fun"
