Twenty seventh. Nature abhors a vacuum.

About six years ago, having become the happy owner of the garden, I, as a novice gardener, learned through trial and error. That was then that the phrase I’ve met in the agrarian book got under my skin: “The earth cannot be naked!”
Stubbornly figthing against a weed, I was simply amazed how quickly new green shoots of the most varied varieties were peeking in the weeded place.
The read phrase gave its sprouts also in me- the awareness of it came: !Living! earth can not be bare! Living earth is always covered, it is protected by snow from the cold and by biomass from the heat.
If you want that nothing grow temporary, cover the ground.

When you know the essence, it is easier to find the way.
Working in my garden began to get on well. Now I looked with new respect at the weeds. I learned that there is a whole science about special weeds, which working as fertilizer or as a doctor, restoring the soil even after infection with hazardous production waste. The incoming plant is always perfect in shape and for the place, and it has a reason why it comes.

Empty place cannot be bare!
Awareness of this grew, not only in my garden, it began to acquire a more global scale.
Do you want to bring something new into your life, do you thirst for a wind of change? Create emptiness! Free up space! The vacuum of emptiness will attract the new stuff.
Similarly, if an empty space was formed without your intention, something new will definitely come in this place. There isn’t an empty place in nature at all, it is always filled with something.
Do you want to attract not just anything, but something certain, work with the forms of emptiness and with the place of emptiness. What comes will fit in shape and for the place.

Do you crave for new ideas? Clear out your desktop, remove all unnecessarities, throw away your old ideas. Create emptiness in speech by your silence and observe. Force yourself if necessary to do nothing, to think nothing, to not start anything for a while. And you will be surprised at the rainbow of ideas that will fill the emptiness.

Do you want to find a partner for life – make room. Work with a form of emptiness, if you know how he (she) should be. A person who loves nature is not easy to meet on a concreted street of city. It does not fit her/him in shape; this is not the soil on which she/he wants to grow.

Well, if you don’t know what you specifically want … Create na emptiness and watch what comes, what will respond. Nature is wise – it comes what fits. And if you don’t like what fits to you – transFORM yourself!

Twenty fifth. A Traveler.

Having met a traveler, ask first from where he’s been taking his way.
Perhaps he came from afar.
Perhaps he had been walking for many years down one difficult path to here, where you have always been.
Maybe that is what’s for you a matter of five minutes, for him took forever. And not even because you are smarter than him, but because you have started from different points.

If someone makes fun of your achievements, just know – your path was difficult, and the mocker doesn’t have the right experience to understand you. He does not realize because he did not pass it.
There is dust on your shoes, and your hands are grazed. You fought (your way) through the blackthorn, went from yourself to himself to understand him. Do not expect that he’ll understand you.
He will laugh about your strategies and plans to learn that, what he has always known…

And then, you have learnt and the offender is going to be quiet. But you won’t find out about that anymore. You’re on your way again. On the new road to new knowledge….because this new space has become a comfort zone for you and you feel bored in it… because you walk in giant strides. And that is what someone standing sees from his fixed point, just one frame of your whole movie.

Fourteenth fable. Life in iPhone.

She looked at herself through her iPhone long and very often, adjusting her smiles and poses to the angles and standards of the camera’s eyes. But one day …

The phone blocked and suddenly announced that it didn’t see anyone any selfie, so there was nothing worth to be photographed. She had to smile and bow for a long time to get any output at all.

Then the iPhone (don’t forget – the offspring of a simple phone family!), as if mocking, identified her face as a Peter from Facebook.

And because Peter’s current location was in a supermarket for rubber dolls in Hong Kong, Google intervened and requested to write a couple of nice words about this place and back it up with some photos.

In her frustration, she tried to calm her frayed nerves by eating. But her home connect refrigerator didn’t open the door, blocked by a food purchase app and supported by a fitness&nutrision app, which also sent a warning mail about “what such late gluttony is fraught with”.

Heating was switched off, despite the frost, because the weather app gave information about the Hong Kong wheather, where Peter was now (what a hell he was doing there!).

For full happiness, Amazon sent a rickshaw cart as a trial to Peter’s location (having previously debit the large sum of money from her account).

Reasons: rush hour and traffic jams in Hong Kong at this time plus Peter’s profile of social media calculated that after the supermarket Peter could need to party hard. And where he goes to party hard knows Google as well as his curious neighbours. And to get there at this time was possible only by rickshaw or on a racing bike. The bicycle was still in process of being built in China, and the rickshaw cart was in stock.

She desperately pressed Dash Button “cut the Internet”,which was hanging over her bed for emergency cases, and … woke up! The phone on the bedside table showed 35 missed messages, but to her delight, it recognized her fingerprint, called her by name and even displayed her sleepy selfie.

What a nightmare!
