Diary #95 An Alternative "IF"

I like this twist of Rudyard Kipling's poem "IF" by meditation teacher Jack Kornfield:

If you can sit quietly after difficult news;

If in financial downturns you remain perfectly calm;

If you can see your neighbours travel to fantastic places without a twinge of jealousy;

If you can happily eat whatever is put on your plate;

If you can fall asleep after a day of running around without a drink or a pill;

If you can always find contentment just where you are;

You are probably a dog.
