One October a Robin decided to stay up north for the winter. His friends all told him he was making a mistake and begged him to come south with them. But he was resolute in his decision.
After all his friends left, the Robin lived it up; he had no competition for all the food and he loved it.
Soon, however, the weather turned cold. It wasn’t long before the Robin realized he’d made a mistake and couldn’t survive the winter.
So he took flight for the south, hoping he wasn’t too late.
Unfortunately he quickly realized he was too late; the temperature was too cold for him to fly and his wings were freezing up.
Unable to continue his flight, the Robin plummeted to the Earth – all but completely frozen.
As he lay on the ground, the Robin felt his heart giving out.
And, just as his heart beat its last, a cow walked over him and pooped on him.
“Oh great!,” thought the Robin angrily, “A final indignity for me!”
But the warmth of the poop revived the Robin. Soon he was awake again and chirping excitedly as he flew south – this time at a lower altitude.
And the moral of this story is: not everyone who poops on you is doing you a disservice.
Try to remember the Robin’s experience the next time something happens to you that you don’t like. Remember that you lack the overall perspective to know whether something is “good” or “bad”. In fact, you can choose to withhold any judgment at all about anything that happens to you.
If you choose to withhold declaring that something is definitively “bad”, you keep open, for yourself, the infinite possibilities always inherent in the quantum field.
