I was speaking in London and I came I gave I gave an exact Asst and this was a little Chinese story that I came across .
When I was in China there was an archer he came to town and he was exhibiting his talents name is showing off and it was wonderful he was right incredible marksman right one night affter another right on the bat and there was a guy standing in the back of the crowd instead of cheering him kept saying ah of practice just a matter of practice.
Well certainly this Archer thought a lot of himself and did not like this comment. He was expecting praise and he did not like the comment just a primary matter of practice.
So you got fairly turned off and went over to the guy said
what do you mean really upset what do you mean the matter of practice. Can you do what I can do ?
He goes well no but let me show you something and so he took and because this guy used to sell oil.
He took a bottle which had a very narrow opening long tube and whena bowl at the buttom.
And he was able to take this big container of oil and pour the oil where it went rigtt through that little opening right through that little opening right through that bottle and not a drop spill and he looked at the car traces.
Can you do that and the archer realized that that he couldn't do that en had any practice doing that and he goes know I cant't shoot the arrow like you but you can't pour the oil like me. It's a matter of practice because I am very bleep whatever you practice you're gonna get good at it and this isn't a question of good or bad.
If you practice cheating the seat you're gonna get good up cheating to see. If you practice complaining you're gonna get very good at complaining.
I mean you will be able to complain about everying without bating an eye or having a second thought it will be a flow.
When all your friends are standing there looking at the big Harvest Moon beautiful night and everybody in almost tears and in awe of this beautiful evening you'll be able to pull out of your hat without a second thought something to complain about it is so dark.
So what do you practice in your life because if you practice peace in your life you're gonna get good at it. You're gonna get very good at it.
If you practice happiness in your life , you're going to get very very good at it.
If you practice knowing youself ,then you're going to get very very good at and you will know who you are.
