    moral of the day


    One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried
    piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.

    Finally he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be
    covered up anyway, it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey. He
    invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They each grabbed a
    shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.


    At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly.
    Then, to everyone's amazement, he quieted down. A few shovel loads
    later, the farmer looked down the well, and was astonished at what he
    saw. As every shovel of dirt hit his back, the donkey did something
    amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer's
    neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake
    it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed, as the
    donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off.

    The Moral:

    Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to
    getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of
    our troubles is a stepping stone. We can get out of the deepest wells
    just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step
    up!

    Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
    1. Free your heart from hatred.
    2. Free your mind from worries.
    3. Live simply.
    4. Give more.
    5. Expect less.
    ==========================================================

    O.K., that's enough of that B.S.

    The donkey later came back, caught the farmer out in the field and
    kicked the shit out of him. Then he went over to
    each of his neighbors farms and kicked the shit out of them too for
    helping.

    The REAL Moral:

    When you try to cover your ass, it always comes back to get you.

    Re: moral of the day

    Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
    1. Free your heart from hatred.
    Hatred is a great fuel. Without some sorta hate for SOMETHING, life would be boring...
    2. Free your mind from worries.
    Worries feed the mind. Worrying makes you use your mind to find solutions...
    3. Live simply.
    Again, boring. And is it even possible in today's world to 'live simply'?
    4. Give more.
    Fuck that! I'm tired of giving...
    5. Expect less.
    Expect NOTHING. It's a lot easier that way...
