The Tao of Pooh.

By Mickster269 ·
Oh, and not THAT kind of Pooh... as in Winnie the Pooh.

How many of us on the tech side of the house, have thought about this?

"The wise are not learned; the learned are not wise." - (Reminds me of some Programmers I know.)

"Lots of people talk to animals," said Pooh.
"Not that many listen though."
"That's the problem." - (Does this remind you of a manager/ supervisor you know?)

"When you discard arrogance, complexity, and a few other things that get in the way, sooner or later you will discover that simple, childlike, and mysterious secret known to those of the Uncarved Block: Life is Fun" - (When we understand this, nothing else matters.)

"Everything has its own place and function. That applies to people, although many don't seem to realize it, stuck as they are in the wrong job, the wrong marriage, or the wrong house. When you know and respect your Inner Nature, you know where you belong. You also know where you don't belong. "

(Well, dang. That last pretty much sums up two years of talking , laughing, crying, and being there with y'all here.)

"" Not like Pooh, the most effortless Bear we've ever seen."
"Just How do you do it, Pooh?"
"Do What?" asked Pooh.
"Become so Effortless."
"I don't do much of anything," he said.
"But all those things of yours get done."
"They just sort of happen," he said" " (Network Admins live by this.)

And finally:

"While Eeyore frets ...
... and Piglet hesitates
... and Rabbit calculates
... and Owl pontificates
...Pooh just is."

That's us.

(Edit: becuse I''m a dork, and didn't pay attention in 7th grade grammer class)

And this is just for Tig2

"Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind, "Pooh!," he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."

Cool post Mickster

It reminded me of, "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" from wayback when.
