While Mr. Garwe mulls the current situation over, Gudo has a flash of divine inspiration that slices right through Space and Time in the *Ku frequency range (at around 12.5 GHz, sorry not to have the EXACT figure), unfortunately (and fortunately for yours truly) it was just an idea, not the entire movie.
“Are you all so confused? That’s not a good sign.
Although.. it clears up one or two things, that I’ve heard through the vine!”
“But less about that! Idle gossip’s not my intention.
We’ll take some advice from a film…
… in another
*For the purists
Taken aback by the lack of comprehension and general bewilderment, Gudo slips and hits his chin on the log. * This is not part of the pose.
“So this thing is a “metaphor”?
- it seems so **complex and random”
Gudo collapsed from his Asana,
[I'm starting to wonder,
if I may have ***jumped the gun]
He snuck a peak at the croc,
who was pretending not to look stunned…
*For all you potential yogis.
**Metaphors can be, especially bad ones.
It’s not easy being a guru. Or a Dad-with-all-the-answers for that matter. Just ask Calvin’s Dad!
“But I have a question to ask…
This gadget sounds uncomfortable,
is it literally lodged in my heart?”
“I used a *metaphor silly, it’s a figure of speech.
A way to explain something that’s just out of reach.
When I likened your heart to that amazing machine,
I never meant to mislead you – that’s just not my scene!”
*Metaphor or Analogy? If you think I have it wrong, please let me know below or at facebook.com/tadpohl!
Back on the River, Gudo is performing his morning *yoga, paused momentarily in “**Downward Facing Dog”, while he waits for Tad’s congratulations for a difficult concept explained so clearly and concisely.
So that was a fine story from the white frozen wastes!
(A stark contrast to the Zambezi where Mr. Gudo awaits)
… with his spirit riding high, post -nostalgic recount.
When a little voice below caused a spiritual dismount…
“Excuse me monkey-dad … SIR?”
*Just in case you didn’t know, and FYI, yoga is not for †softies. If you think it is then try it and see.
** The most famous of all yoga poses, and the first one you will probably learn.
†I nearly used the word “sissies”, and then I suddenly realised that I am probably thought of as one in certain circles! (In the same way that Gareth Thomas is of course … haha.)
And the lesson here is that once you have audience you must *make the most of it! Maybe there’ll be some fish in it for you
So hear this, o worthy,
yet untrusty penguins,
you all have these feelings,
and they’re there for a reason…
… if you become more aware,
more alert to that voice
you’ll avoid bad decisions
and make the right choice!
*And you may take this one to the bank.
It’s all very well and good to quote from “The Secret” (*which really is only a book quoting from other people), but how does it actually feel when your intuition is giving you guidance. Well this is the best way I can think of explaining it – a gut feeling that occurs when you have to make a decision… sadness sneaking in, generally means “no”… a feeling of elation or light-heartedness, generally means “yes” – **I think it’s that simple!
“But HOW does it feel?”
They asked… in frustration
“We need something more ***tangible!
at the very least, an equation!”
“Well… it feels something like this,
(it’s an emotional thing)
if you decide on your choice
and a sadness sneaks in …”
“THAT is the sign!
that’s your intuition
it’s telling you NO!
don’t make that dumb-assed decision!”
*Taking nothing away from “The Secret” of course, it’s actually spot on IMHO, if that’s what you’re looking for, and it resonates with you.
**I welcome your opinion below, or on Facebook
***People always want “tangible”, or “empirical” evidence. *Sigh*
Sometimes the best of us lose control with what’s happening in our lives, and have to make sacrifices to get out of a sticky situation.. cut our losses and move on – it may not be anything as drastic as having to *pawn our best earrings (God Forbid!).
“So if you’re caught off-balance by events
and your best earrings you are pawning,
Think back to where the drama started
… no doubt you ignored the warning!”
*Especially to dodgy guy in a hat, for two †red herrings.
†The wife will not be happy.
