I created this Blog to explore SelfMastery, help myself and others by sharing my poetry, insights, stories, proverbs, and hopefully learning from some of your responses.Join the Journey share your experiences and life lessons. Start your day with a sip of Gye-Nyame. Remember support the Journey by visiting the tip jar or purchasing a book. Proceeds go to help others move toward SelfMastery through my Tribe and some of the community organizations I work with.
"On mile 3" my spreaker radio show I discussed a new definition of power but left out the connection of humbleness to true power. To be Humble = to be empty...?
I have come to understand humbleness in this way from a ancient Zen story:
A Zen master was being visited by someone wanting to know about Zen. Visitor began asking alot of questions.
The Master served the visitor the visitor tea. As the visitor kept talking the Master kept pouring.
The visitor watched the cup over flow and the tea rolled down the table into his lap.
The visitor jumped and said "the cup is to full you are wasting tea everywhere!"
The Master replied "like this cup you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?"
