Be the Mighty Zen Gator

Be a Mighty Zen Gator

Seek the Balance of the Fierce and Zen-Like Gator

Gators 🐊 have evolved for optimal efficiency. They do not waste time or  energy on pursuits that will deplete versus fuel them unless the benefit of such pursuit is deemed worthy. In fact, gators lurk below the surface monitoring for opportunities (will this help me?) and threats (will this harm me?) and simply appear to ignore everything else. 

As tasty morsels come into the gators path the only ones that prompt a response are the ones worthy of their chomp.

In life, humans have the appearance of their own tasty morsel experiences that come along their path. Before deciding to chomp, there is exists a space between the experience and our response where we have the opportunity to ask “will this harm me?” or “will this help me?”

When humans learn how to stay in the present and mindfully respond they are able to reap the rewards with an intentional life.

If worthy of the chomp then take action and enjoy! If not worthy of the chomp then deploy the tools of chosen response, see if there is anything worth pursuing, process it out, and remain in the fierceness of the zen-like state of being a gator 🐊
