Drop The Dead Donkey

Now I earlier spoke of comedy and of course I am through not watching TV very often completely oblivious to who the so-called NOW comedians are and what the present popular comedy shows are apart of course from what I see in news bulletins and papers that colleagues kindly pass or leave for myself at work.

So Drop The Dead Donkey was a comedy show that was on many years ago that was what might be called a nugget or gem of a show that seemingly passed under the popularity stakes radar.

The premise was that of an invented TV Newsroom and all the assorted conflicting personalities scrambling to get the News on air and be the headline reporter and story and so on and it was both subtle and in your face very much at the same time.

The reason that I mention it is that you can of course translate such goings on to any environment and see the associated comedy. the phrase Drop The Dead Donkey was a newsroom or reporting speak for stories that had already passed out of fashion or could not be reported on-you can look the phrase up for yourselves.

So for instance where I work year on year and sometimes week on week or month on month we have assorted independent bodies coming in and checking the business structure and workings and goings on and are score carded in like for like fashion with business’ of a similar nature-the idea being that the independent bodies do not play favourites and give an independent indication to prospective customers of what level of service can be expected and-or provided by aforementioned business to there customers.

My own experience of 10 years of these so-called “AUDITINGS” is very much one of OMG what does so-and-so think they are doing-the so-and-so in question usually being a senior manager of some description seemingly reduced to hanging on the coat -tails of auditors in begging dog fashion as though that is going to achieve what they want. 

Anyone who has meditated for a year or two can surely see the problem with this strategy (and often inherent in human nature psychology) in the sense that when presented with begging dogs you turn the screws and create greater pain for them  I say this as someone who the Auditors very often come into contact with at some stage near or far give a brief checkout or flinch or blink look with and then generally go on there way-“nothing to be concerned with or about” being the highly effective message that I usually project on such encounters and occasions, even when as on some occasions my work has not been up to the higher standards I set myself (being a perfectionist) and I can also say that I have felt sabotaged on some occasions whereby I have had team up with so-and-so sprung upon myself at the last minute and again one person can only reduce anxiety and drama levels of others by so much.  I say this as I am aware that a number of colleagues took up meditation and may well be wondering what strategy I personally have successfully been using over the years.

Of course that is only the perspective of one individual and whilst you have to take 100% responsibility for all-comers in your mental World there is little that I can do to bring senior dead donkey and very often EGOTISTS into similar thinking patterns and strategies.  I think you have to introduce the idea or in a very deep down way-question “what is taking responsibility?”

I think one of the best strategies I have heard for clearing those deeply embedded type worries, fears and so on came from Joe Vitale with his version of what THE HAWAIANS DO http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ho%27oponopono

His version being simply to focus on a particular internal mantra “I love you, please forgive me, I’m sorry, thank you” and have it running repetitiously and continuously through your thoughts irrespective of what is going on about yourself.  There are of course many a mantra that can be used when we look at all the various religions and cultures and the one you choose should surely reflect what best works for yourself-and of course is perhaps reflected in your own level of meditational advancement and internal congruence.

So I once again find myself thinking that I have written and used this material previously yet that is by the by in the respect that you have to get to a stage where you are no longer experiencing the internal conflicts and are better aligned with the greater truths and so on.

and theN THERE IS OF COURSE THIS http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serenity_Prayer

So I seemingly having lots to say for myself at the present time and that is no bad thing when you consider that FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS EVERYONE’S RIGHT IRRESPECTIVE OF FOLKS WHO LIKE TO THINK OTHERWISE AND DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT THE LAW AND LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES WILL BE BROUGHT DOWN UPON ANYONE WHO CHALLENGES SUCH TRUTHS.

Thank you for reading, God Bless and be Well 🙂
