we did not get very far! Augustus the SweetPants fell on his side and
seeing Mr PuffyPants' paws I could tell that the same had happened to him.
So we took it back in on the other side of the gate. They assumed the proper learning posture momentarily and then I got side tracked by the furry mysteries who threw
glances in one direction
and then the other direction;
sleepy eyes closed
and sleepy eyes opened.
Gus with closed eyes and Ollie open eyes
followed by Ollie closed eyes and Augustus open eyes.
Then they chose to talk to each other for a while
and whatever Ollie told Augustus made him wonder deep wonderful thoughts.
Now they are telling me that soon they would be able to listen
and I don't believe that is the case based on their legs being extended in the air!
Mr Puffy Pants told me that he preferred to listen upside down
while SweetPants said that he would listen with his eyes closed for better concentration.
I take what I can get.
We were a few days ago, maybe a week ago reading Dan Jordan, On Becoming Your True Self and so since my mind was on instrumentation and lab work I decided to just for the much needed distraction...
"None of us knows his capacity for love or how much he can learn. Just as we had to have faith before we could learn about the attributes of God, so must we have faith before we can know something of ourselves. We must love- be attracted to, have a particular attitude towards- that unknown in our own selves if it is to become released. If we relate satisfactorily to the unknown in ourselves, we will be able to relate to the unknown in others. In other words, we have to accept others not only for what they presently are but also for what they can become; otherwise we impede their process of transformation and keep them from becoming their true selves.
