What Do Cows Drink?

God, what does Y-E-S spell?

Yes.

So then what does E-Y-E-S spell?

Eyes?

Um…Never mind. It doesn’t work here.

What is it about, child?

There’s this video that Danielle showed me last night. It’s someone asking what those words spell. It’s kind of like a trick question but it isn’t. It’s very funny in the sense that the answer is so obvious and simple but some people just can’t get the right answer. Maybe because it doesn’t register in their mind that it’s actually the word “eyes”. They keep pronouncing it either as “ee-yes” or “ease”. The one asking is usually overheard giggling and laughing which makes the prank even funnier.

So it’s a prank?

Well, no. Not really. It’s a trick question…Well…No, not really either. Um…I don’t know what it is.

It’s a trick of the mind, my dear. When you asked the first question, it influenced the answer to the next question. Try doing it the other way around.

I don’t think it’ll work. And it won’t be as funny. It’s like fear, isn’t it? When we put a seed of fear into the mind, it’ll influence how we see the world.

Precisely. So what do you think will happen if you put a seed of love into the mind instead?

Then we will see the world through the eyes of love.

Yes. Through the eyes of the soul. By the way, did you fall for it?

Fall for what?

The trick of the mind?

Nope. Danielle asked me the question before she showed me the video. She was disappointed when I immediately answered “eyes”.

Why do you think that is?

Because she’s asked me trick questions before. I fall for some. So I’m sort of ready for her now.

You’re getting honed.

Yeah. Um…God?

Yes?

What do cows drink?

Water.

Argh. You’re no fun.

Grapes & Raisins

7 May 2014 Wednesday 5:09pm

This conversation actually happened between my daughter and I. After lunch, we had fresh grapes for dessert which she turned down. She had ice cream instead:

Daughter: Mum, I don’t want the grapes.

Me: You don’t want healthy. You prefer junk?

Daughter: Grapes are raisins—they’re wrinkled.

Me: I’m wrinkled.

Daughter: You’re not a fruit.

God, what’s with the grapes and raisins? Are they metaphors?

Yes. What went through your mind?

That when it comes to creating one’s reality, some people prefer the wrinkled—the old way. As in rules and regulations.

Correct. Now, explain to me what the “healthy” and what the “junk” are metaphors for?

Me? I started this conversation to ask you about it, remember?

I am you, you are me.

Argh! Fine. The healthy is the spiritual as in the soul. While the junk is—

Never mind. By this time, I’m sure your readers already know what is “junk”. And even though you have lived “the junk and the wrinkled”, you now have followers who believe in “the grapes”—which is The New Spirituality.

Cool. I hate to ask—why am I not a “fruit”?

Then don’t ask. Say it.

I’m not a fruit, as in I’m not a “fruitcake”?

No, you’re not a “fruitcake”.

There are some who will disagree.

Only time will tell, dear one. Only time will tell.
