Two prime ministers were sitting in a room discussing affairs
of state. Suddenly an aide burst in, shouting and stamping and banging
his fist on the desk. The host prime minister quietly said, “Peter,
kindly remember Rule Number Six.” Peter was instantly restored to
complete calm, apologized for the interruption, and left the room. The
prime ministers resumed their discussion. Several minutes later,
another aide rushed in, shouting and stamping. Again the host prime
minister quietly said, “Marie, please remember Rule Number Six.” Marie
calmed down immediately, apologized, and left the room. The visiting
prime minister said “I’ve seen many things in my life, but never
anything as remarkable as this. Tell me, what is this Rule Number Six?”
The host prime minister said, “It’s really very simple. Rule Number Six
is ‘Don’t take yourself so damned seriously.’” After a moment of
pondering, the visiting prime minister inquired, “And what, may I ask,
are the other rules?” The host replied, “There aren’t any.”
Remember rule number six and your smilasana pose. With love and peace, Namaste. We will be adding things periodically, check back often. Please feel free to link us to your site, if you would like us to add your link, e-mail us:
