The Frog

The Frog

Be kind and tender to the Frog, 

And do not call him names, 
As ‘Slimy skin,’ or ‘Polly-wog,’ 
Or likewise ‘Ugly James,’ 
Or ‘Gape-a-grin,’ or ‘Toad-gone-wrong,’ 
Or ‘Billy Bandy-knees’: 
The Frog is justly sensitive 
To epithets like these. 
No animal will more repay 
A treatment kind and fair; 
At least so lonely people say 
Who keep a frog (and, by the way, 
 They are extremely rare).

 

("The Frog," by Hilaire Belloc)

Three Chinese Philosophies

Three Chinese Philosophies

 

From ancient China, three philosophies form the bedrock of ancient Chinese culture.

They each have a particular focus and also discuss the opposite of this main focus.

They are:

- Confucianism

- Taoism

’- Buddhism

 

It is difficult for „western“ people to understand that these are not religions. They are all philosophies. They do not believe in a „higher being“ or „supernatural power“.

They all focus on real life order. Each is unique in helping maintain order and structure in society and personal life.

Ann Change and Lost

Ann Clinic Rules
15 April 2017
good rules vs bad rulesFollowing rules was extreme programming from infancy for me. First rule: You are here to help your mother, You are the servant of your family. I was taught to be an adult as an infant and only recently found the un-nurtured infant inside. In finding my infant I was able to stop crying for what seemed to be no reason. I have learned through much therapy that some rules are a method of abuse. I have learned to use better judgement in following rules. Some rules are for our...
