Dog and the Cod Liver Oil
A man began to give large doses
of cod-liver oil to his Doberman
because he had been told
that the stuff was good for dogs.
Each day he would hold the head
of the protesting dog between his knees,
force its jaws open, and pour the liquid
down its throat.
One day the dog broke loose
and spilled the oil on the floor.
Then to the man's great surprise,
it returned to lick the spoon.
That is when he discovered
that what the dog had been fighting
was not the oil,
but his method of administering it.
~ Anthony de Mello
What I choose to take away
from it.....is the fact that....
what we do may be important....
but how we go about it
is even more important.
What we say may be significant....
how we say it ...even more so.
In the ultimate analysis....
everything is matter......and
everything matters :)
Let's make it an extraordinary day :)
