Pick Up the Eggs

Buddhists have wonderful teaching stories. This one told about Aachan Cha, 
a Thai monk and teacher. A monk at his monastery kept complaining to him 
about all the other monks - they should be better meditators, 
the should eat less. Finally Aachan Cha turned to him and said,
 "You are like somebody who keeps chickens and then goes out in the morning and picks up the droppings instead of the eggs"
What eggs are you ignoring right now because your're so focused on the droppings?

This is from the book below:
(I thought a good idea for the new year to have a happiness booster and reminder every day)

Manchmal, in hellen Augenblicken, lichte Momentne, kann ich es erkennen. Und ich hoffe, mit zunehmendem Alter werden diese häufiger...

Darf ich Dich zu der dc am nächsten Wochenende einladen? Ich bin der Host mit SNAKE.
