In this dialogue, me and my future are at stake in the real drama of my life. Everyone of us stand beside ourselves and choose which way to live. In a real sense we are athletes that exercise our brains to have more of what works in our day to day lives. In this conversation, a time traveler pleads for help: simplicity, compassion and patience.
Me: How are you doing old boy?
Old Boy: You certainly sound chipper!
M: What happened to your leg?
OB: Broke it in a biking accident.
M: Looks lame.
OB: Yup. Do you ride?
M: Yup. And I wouldn’t give it up for nothin.
OB: Could ya slow down?
M: What’s the fun in that?
OB: Is it worth it?
OB: Can you prevent an accident? Would you want to try?
M: Ofcourse I would.
OB: Slow down.
M: Train your Brain, the best way, mindful, knowing yourself. I wish I’d spent more time allowing myself to discover the wonderful nature of my mind.
OB: It’s not to late. Who knows, small steps every day will add up. Either to a broken lame leg or a better one.
M: Like changing a brain can save lives? You must be joking?
OB: No, I am a safety first kinda guy. But start with yourself first. You can’t help anyone if you don’t help yourself.
M: What no ‘love your neighbor ‘?
OB: Ya, train your brain, train your body, train your family and friend and your neighbor. Maybe, tip the world to go in a better direction. But start at the source. Use a little simplicity, compassion and patience. Your choice.
