Some Gumption for you to muse over; Shit Happens!
Anyway, shit definitely does happen, which is why so many people have a ready made excuse for their unhappy whining and whinging ways, ha, ha . . yes, it is all about that word perspective, but for now, well, who gives a shit? Don't answer that, because I obviously don't ;-) Look, if you're interested in discovering a new understanding of perspective and awareness I recommend visiting this link to C. Om's blog; he brings great clarity to the subject.
What is this leading to? It's leading to a philosophical look at the phrase shit happens, and it's going to be an ongoing, day to day perusal that will keep being added to, one blog post at a time, a day at a time . . .
. . . until it comes to its climax, which will definitely hit the spot! So, make sure you come here everyday to get a fix of shit happens . . . it is definitely the best shit in town!
Here is your first fix . . .
Taoism: "Shit happens."
Confucianism: "Confucius say: Shit happens."
Buddhism: "If shit happens, it isn't really shit"
Zen: "What is the sound of shit happening?"
OK, you're bright, you've got the idea by now, right? It's meant to be a light hearted look at different philosophical approaches. If the four philosophies above did not make you at least smile out loud then maybe you're in the wrong place . . but that's alright, it's not all wrong, you either get this shit or you don't ;-)
PS. You may have seen this shit elsewhere before now, that's ok, it's not brand new shit, but it's still worth a smile a day :-)
