Chuang Tzu said ‘A perfect man is like an empty boat.’

As per my experience, when we enter the world, study, job, raising family and achieving success in material life is like taking boat from one end to another.

Then dumping all success, knowledge and experience, that had helped only in consolidating our ego, on that shore itself and again with empty boat begin journey towards HOME gathering spiritual knowledge, practically applying them and gaining real wealth of wisdom.

My suggestion is: while taking boat from this end to the other end just keep an eye on this shore too by regular meditation – i preferred awareness and Zen from Osho’s 112 meditations. This is enough and you will come back on your own. There is no need of anything or anyone else as it is your very personal journey. If you seek help then there is big market out there for it.

Osho in his hand written letter to Mr Thakur too said something similar.

Sagar University

Noon, 25 July 1956

Dear Thakur,

Love.

Was happy to receive your letter. I was worried about you and wanted to know your whereabouts. I had asked Madhu but even Madhu had no idea.

What makes you think that a distance lurks between us? On man’s mental frame, distance does not depend on space lying between two different points on the earth. In other words geographical distance bears no meaning. It actually depends upon the mind and its concern. We can be far distant, yet close; and we can be together, yet not close.

You have written about achieving success and attaining your goal. If hope and an incessant effort lights one’s path, one need not go anywhere in the search of success. It is like a moth that comes to the flame of effort on its own… Therefore, success should not be the goal, but an untiring effort alone.

Personally, I feel that effort itself is the attainment and unflinching step the goal.

I was sincerely hoping you to come back here after the summer vacation. Now wherever you are, I wish and pray that you can put all your heart and soul in whatever is your goal. In life always, keep an eye towards ‘God’. That will give you light constantly I have informed Madhu and Burman about you.

Your very own,

Rajneesh

Kabir also said

कबीर बड़ी बादूरी करी, पुस्तक देई बहाई।

बावन आखर सोधी करी, रगे मांमैंचित्त लाई।।

Kabir te Ching – Introduction – 2

Whatever will be written under this series, is vetted by my own experience only, except nirvaana. It is my own experience from practically applying Osho’s teachings in my family life over a span of about 30 years.

Kabir is a ‘Bhakti marg’ saint where surrender comes first and meditative state attained as by product at the end.

What comes automatically has more impact in teachings of few saints like Kabir.

Laozi too seems to be ‘Jnan marg’ where meditative state attained through knowledge. And by taking knowledge from everyone the meditative state is attained first and then surrender happens automatically and so they start talking about Love, Compassion and surrender etc Like with Buddha, Osho etc.

So those teachings of Kabir after enlightenment will be helpful to understand Tao and those teachings of Buddha after his enlightenment will be helpful to understand Kabir.

One mystic ‘Ashtavakra’ whose ‘Maha Geeta’ most referred by ‘Jnana marg’ followers too have some insightful messages that may be helpful understand Tao. Osho talked at length on all these mystics and his version seems to me as most authentic, so in light of those teachings my comparison is basically based upon.

Another thing worth understanding is that in India there was many full fledged developed systems or methodologies for spiritual journey through ‘Bhakti marg’ (path of prayer of idol or God) was and is mostly part of organised religion and only few ‘Casts’, mostly Brahmins, in India are allowed to enter into it. ‘Jnana marg’( path of knowledge) remained and still continuing mostly for lower caste people/masters of South India and one’s own dedicated effort is required while facing society alone at the same time. Jnana marg is suitable for people of lower casts, in India as they have no other options, and also for those who are living family life.

Meera is exception to Bhakti marg mystic and Kabir is exception, of belonging to lower cast, to Bhakti marg. May be due to grace of their masters as they had seen spark in them.

Osho too added another feather to this exceptional mystics list by Organising and systematising the unorganised ‘Jnana marg’ and opening it to foreigners and for other religions too. He also founded a commune for such seekers where they can stay together with like minded a as lone strugglers in pursuit of eternal happiness through spiritual wisdom.

For such foreign disciples Osho gave a tinge of traditional wisdom of great Indian known mystics, unknown or forgotten one and many such foreign mystics too. Hence giving a new lease of life to their teachings too because it may be of help for someone in future.

कबीर के दोहे – Couplets of Kabir -बोलचाल की हिन्दी में.

Couplets of Kabir are called as ‘Teachings of Kabir’. Kabir used routine life’s instances to teach deepest knowledge of spiritual journey. This too about 550 years before! So even people of India may not correlate with them now. So only those which could be understood by all be tried to translate in English. Any correlated teachings of Laozi (Tao), Ashtavakra (Maha Geeta) etc be cited and tried from different perspectives.

सामान्यत: कबीर के दोहे उस समय की प्रचलित भाषा में मिलते हैं. जिनका अर्थ जानना कई हिन्दीभाषी लोगों के लिए भी कठीन हो जाता है. इसके कारण कबीर के अमुल्य ‘सीखें’ -जो साखी के नाम से जानी जाती हैं- कई लोगों तक नहीं पहूँच सकी. एक प्रयास है कि विदेशी भी उन दोहों के पीछे छुपे अर्थ जानकर अपने व्यक्तित्व में ढाल सकें।

कबीर के ये दोहे इंटरनेट पर उपलब्ध कई pdf में से लिए गये है,

1. कथा कीर्तन कुल विषय, जो छोड़े वह पाय।

कहत कबीरा इस जगत में, नाहीं और उपाय।।

2. जहाँ ग्राहक तहां हूँ नहीं, जहाँ हूँ तहां ग्राहक नहीं।

मूरख यह भरमत फिरै, पकड़ शब्द कि छांह।।

3. कहता तो बहुत मिलै, गहता मिले ना कोय।

जो कहता वह जान ले, वो नहीं गहता होय।।

4. तब लग तारा जगमगै, जब लग उगै ना सूर।

तब लग जीव जग कर्मवश, जब लग ज्ञान ना पूर।।

5. सोना पानी साधूजन, टूट जुड़े सौ बार।

अज्ञानी कुम्भ कुम्हार के, एक ही धक्के में दरार।

6. सब आए इस एक में, डाल पात फल फूल। कबीरा पीछे क्या रहा ? गह पकड़ी जब मूल॥

7. जो जन भीजे नाम रस, विगत कबहूँ ना रूख। अनुभव आव दीसते, ना सुख ना दु:ख॥

8. सुरती को समझा करो, ज्यों गागर पनिहार। हौले हौले सुरत होय, कहे कबीर विचार॥

9. गारी ही सों उपजे, कलह कष्ट और खींच। हारी चले सो साधू है, लागी चले सो नीच॥

10. आवत गारी एक है, उलटन होय अनेक। कह कबीर नहीं उलटीए, वही एक की एक॥

11. जो नहीं जाने जीव आपना, करहीं जीव बार बार। जीवा एसा जानना, जन्मे दूजी बार॥

12. कहूँ तो है नहीं, दूजा कहूँ तो गार। है जैसा तैसा हो रहे, कहे कबीर विचार॥

13. जो तू चाहे मुक्ति को, छोड़ दे सब आस। मुक्त ही जैसा हो रहे, सब कुछ तेरे पास॥

14. आए हैं सो जाएंगे, राजा रंक फकीर। एक सिंहासन चढ़ी चले, एक बंधे जंजीर॥

15. आया था किस काम को, तू सोया चादर तान। सुरत संभाल रे गाफिल, अपनाआप पहचान॥

16. कबीर संगत साधू की, ‘जौकी भूसी खाय। खीर खांड भोजन मिले, साकट संग जाय॥

17. एक से अनन्त होय है, अनंत से एक ना होय। कबीर एक जो जान लिया, अनंत जाने सोय॥

18. कबीर गर्व ना किजीए, उँचा देखी आवास। काल पड़ो भुमी लेटना, उपर जमसी घॉँस॥

19. आज काल के पांच दिन, जंगल होगा वास। उपर उपर लोग फिरे, ढोर चरेंगे घास॥

20. क्या है भरोसा देह का, नष्ट हो जात क्षण मांही। सॉंस सॉंस सुमिरन करो, और जतन कुछ नाहीं॥

21. हाड़ जले लकड़ी जले, जले जलावनहार। हौले हौले तर गये, लिया जिन सर भार॥

22. यह तन काचा कुंभ है, लिया फिरता था साथ। धबका लागा फूट गया, कुछ आया हाथ॥

23. कबीर धूली सकेली के, पूड़ी जो बांधी येह। चार दिवस का पैखना, अंत खेह की खेह॥

24. कबीर सपने रैन के, उघड़ी आए नैन। जीभर बहु लूटी मैं, जागूं तो लेन देन॥

25. जाती वर्ण सब खोय के, भक्ति करे चित लाय। कहै कबीर सतगुरू मिले, आवागमन नशाय॥

26. दुनिया ने धोखे से, चली कुटुम्ब की चाल। तब कुल की क्या लाज है, जब ले धरेंगे मसान॥

27. कुल खोए कुल उबरे, कुल राखे कुल जाय। गुरू कुल भेंटिया, सब कुल गया मिलाय॥

28. पाव पलक की सुधी नहीं, करे काल का साज। काल अचानक मारसी, ज्यों तीतर को बाज॥

29. क्या किया हमने आकर, कहॉं को हम जाँए। इधर के रहे ना उधर के, चले मूल गंवाँए॥

30. रात गँवाई सोकर, दिन गँवाया खाय। हीरा जन्म अमूल्य है, कौड़ी बदले जाय॥

31. कहता हूँ कहते जाता हूँ, कहूँ बजाए ढोल। श्वास खाली जाती है, जिसका तीन लोक का मोल॥

32. भगती बिगाड़ी कामी ने, इन्द्रियों के स्वाद। हीरा खोया हाथ से, जन्म गँवाए बाद॥

33. यह तन विष की बेल है, गुरू अमृत की खान। शीष देकर जो गुरू मिले, तो भी सस्ता जान॥

34. यह बाजी तो फिर नहीं, मन में देख विचार। आया इसे जीतने को, जन्म जुआँ मत हार॥

35. तीन लोक चोरी भये, सबका धन हर लीन। बिना सीस के चोर ने, पड़ा किसी को चिन्ह॥

36. सीखें तो बहुत सुनी, मिटा मन का मोह। पारस तक पहुँचा नहीं, रहा लोह का लोह॥

37. जितनी लहरें समुद्र की, उतनी मन की दौड़। सहज ही हीरा पाइये, जो मन लागे एक ठौर॥

38. समुद्र नहीं सीप बिना, स्वाती बूँद भी नहीं। कबीर मोती बन गया, जो शून्य की बूंद गह गाँठी॥

39. हंसा बगुला एक सा दिखे, मानसरोवर मांही। हंसा तो मोती चुगै, बगुला मछली खाहीं॥

40. कबीर लहरें समुद्र की, मोती बिखरे आय। बगुला पहचाने नहीं, हंसा चुगी चुगी खाय॥

41. कबीरा गंदे नाले का, पानी पीये नहीं कोय। जाकर मिले जब गंगा में, तो गंगाजल होय॥

42. करता था तो क्यों करता रहा? अब करी क्यों पछिताय। बोया पेड़ बबूल का, आम कहॉं से खाय॥

43. कस्तूरी कुन्डल बसै, मृग ढूँढे वन मॉंही। एसे घट घट राम हैं, दुनिया देखे नाहीं॥

44. कबीरा मन ही गयन्द है, अंकुश दे दे राखुं। विष की बेली परीहरि, अमृत का फल चाखूं॥

45. कबीरा आप ठगाइये, और ठगीये कोय। आप ठगे सुख उपजे, और ठगे दुख होय॥

46. जो तुझे कांटे बोये, उसको बोय तु फूल। तुझको फूल ही फूल है, उसको है त्रिशूल॥

47. नैनन में जहाँ पूतली, मालीक प्रगटे उस मॉंही। भीतर लोग झांकही, बाहर ढूंढत जाहीं॥

48. जहां आपा तहां आपदा, जहां संशय तहां रोग। कह कबीर वह क्यों दिखे, चारों बाधक रोग॥

49. झूठे सुख को सुख कहे, मानत है मन मौज। जगत चबेना काल का, कुछ मुख में कुछ गोद॥

50. तन को जोगी सब करे, मन को बिरला कोय। सहज में सब ही पाइये, जो मन जोगी होय॥

Kabir te Ching – Introduction part 1.

When Kabir talks about King in his ‘doha’ or verses it is same as Laozi talks about King in his book ‘Tao te Ching’. Both are referring to that natural state of every human being which was enjoyed in childhood but lost during adolescent a age. Very purpose of every human being is to regain that state.

Comparing that state of human being with Lion of a forest Kabir says:

सिंह अकेला वन फिरै, पलक पलक करे दौर।

Sinh akela van feere palak palak kare daur|

जैसा वन है आपना, तैसा वन है और।।

Jaisa van hai aapna, taisa van hai aur||

Natural state of human being, when regained, is like a Lion-the king of a forest- keeps moving in its territory keeping eyes on everything at every blink of eyes. An enlightened person too keeps eyes on everyone and everything. The difference is that he now understand that just like his body is being energised by the Tao all other people or things too are energised by the Tao. So his eyes are set to see Tao behind everything or everyone at each blink of eyes.

Kabir said:

चाह गई चिंता गई, मनवा बेपरवाह।

Chaah gayi chinta gayi, manva beparwah|

जिसको कुछ नहीं चाहीये, वो ही शहंशाह।।

Jisko kuchh nahin chahiye, vo hi shahanshan||

The state in which Kabir is living, is natural state of all human being too, is described here by Kabir. My desires and worries got evaporated on ‘seeing’ my ‘self’ or ‘Tao’ or ‘God/Truth’ etc, and i became careless.

As soon as Kabir realised that God/Truth/Emptiness or Tao is already taking care of everyone and everything in a perfectly harmonious way each moment. His worries and desires vanishes immediately. It happens! it is effortless effort Wu-Wei. Anyone trying to go beyond or overcome is going to fail!

Only the one who does not want anything is real King.

It means the one who has experienced Tao, get dissolved with it like sugar in water, and Tao is real King of Cosmos or Existence so the one who experiences it too becomes King too.

Lao Tzu has written his verses in ‘Tao te Ching’ describing about this state of every human being as King. So it is for everyone to help in reclaiming the lost grounds in childhood.

Why only Kabir? The answer is that Kabir said:

सब काहू का लीजिए, साँचा शब्द निहार।

Sab kahu ka lijiye, sancha shabd nihar|

पक्षपात ना कीजिए, कहे कबीर विचार।।

Pakshapaat na kijiye, kahe Kabir vichar||

Kabir said that truth needs to be learned from all religions or of all the previous mystics. Followers of a religion must keep their mind open for accepting truth of other religions too without prejudice.

Kabir not only said but walked the talk by mentioning Jesus, Buddha /Mahavir etc as below:

जेते तारे रैणी के, तेते बैरी मुझ्झ।

Jete taare rainy ke, tere bairy mujjh|

धड़ सूली सिर कंगूरे, तउ बिसरे तुझ्झ।।

Dhad suli sir kangoore, tau na bisare tujjh||

There are enemies equal to the counting of stars in the sky, and his below head part was nailed on cross below horizontal while head nailed to the upright part above it, still a follower of truth, Jesus, never forgot God for a moment.

Imagine just a prick of pointed thing on your body and you forget even the work at hand!

Kabir also said:

कबीर कठीनाई खरी, सो मिलता हरि नाम।

Kabir kathinayee khari, so milta hari naam|

सूली उपर नर बंधा, गिरूत नाहीं थाम।।

Sooli upar nar bandha, giroot nahin thaam||

Kabir says that it is better to face hardship in search of your own ‘self’ or God, when a person, Jesus, was nailed on cross then God himself has lifted him from there itself and assured that his sacrifice or hardship should not go in vain.

Regarding Buddha and Mahavir he says:

या मन गही जो थिर रहे, गहरी धूनी गाड़ी।

Ya man gahi jo thir rahe, gahari dhooni gadri|

चलती बिरीयाँ उठी चला, हाथी घोड़ा छाँड़ी।।

Chalti biriyan uthi chala,

Haathi ghoda chhandi||

By controlling this mind to an unmoving state or no-mind state, if a person seek deeper within then the one who left his kingdom, in young age , having many Elephants and Horses too able to enter the unmoving and infinite.

A little hint about Tao too was given in this verse by Kabir:

मन मुआ माया मुई, संशय मुआ शरीर।।

Man mua maya mui, sanshay mua sharir|

अविनाशी जो ना मरे तो क्यों मरे कबीर।।

In no-mind state coupled with egoless state all confusions get dissolved or evaporated immediately as you have experienced ‘Tao’ in your life. Kabir says that he is floating on it.

If Tao is eternal then why Kabir, floating on it, is going to die?

Laozi’s ‘Tao te Ching’ is incomplete without Kabir in today’s context. Kabir is able exactly pinpoint ‘acts’ and ‘situation’ when one dives into ‘Tao’ like ‘Aha’ moment in life. So to remain in it more and more very small small steps are precisely defined. Osho’s awareness meditation or all other 112 meditations helps one to choose from the best suited so as to be adopted in daily life and enjoying this material world too to its fullest.

Guru Nanak gave a respectable place to Kabir in his Nanakvaani, duly quoting him. Hence tinge, and tone is from Osho and Guru Nanak.

Human being is the most sophisticated Hologram.

https://futurism.com/scientists-create-holograms-see-hear-feel

In last stage ie 7th rug of inner ladder, the person realises that whole world around him/her is just illusion (above Hologram with mind and all senses too, with capacity to reproduce!) and it seems to us that we are real due to this mind only, and (stopping of this) mind is also helping to awaken from a dream like state which makes possible to take Holographic body as real!

Hence human being can be best described by any enlightened mystic of today, or past, as Most sophisticated Hologram that can be produced ever- is having capacity to create lower level Holograms using machines or technology.

Whether you are a healing practitioner, Zen follower, artist, Craft person, buddhist, Lemuria partner, Jesus follower or Kabir/Krishna follower meditation helps everyone.

Meditation is the way to stop mind or come to no-mind state that brings this understanding-Said Buddha and all other mystics through different names.


Best meditation that suited me.
https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2641985275825745&id=188447071179590&ref=m_notif&notif_t=feedback_reaction_generic

Qubit state of human being, both at a time.

Osho described that his state is very similar to the ‘Quanta’ state described by Albert Einstein. Now recent Quantum computer are based on it and its unit is termed as ‘Qubit’. When a Quantum computer’s or processor’s power is 2 Billion more than normal computer or processor then imagine increase in power in a ‘human being’ after enlightenment!

It is our natural state!

We are living a life like a shadow of this matchstick. Looking at our state saint/mystic Kabir said it in Hindi as ‘ठाड़ा सिंह चरावे गाय’ means a Lion is earning his livelihood for keeping watch over the cows grazing in the field!


Your basic nature is that of lighted matchstick, you with your self. In childhood lived in that state. In adolescent age Your basic nature is that of lighted matchstick, you with your self. In childhood lived in that state. In adolescent to pleasures  of senses mind falsely imposed ‘self’ on body leading to all duality ie pain and pleasure sense etc. Through meditation we can regain the lost grounds and become able to ‘see’ our real nature as lighted matchstick. This seeing your real self is awakening or enlightenment. 

 Osho’s meditation is very helpful to me in my journey.

तुम जली हुई माचिस की तीली हो और अपने को शरीर ‘स्वयं का होना’ मानना बुझी माचिस कीतीली के समान जीवन जीना हैओशो का यह ध्यान बहुत कारगर उपाय है चकमक लगने मेंजबछाया देख ले अपना वास्तविक रूप तो समझो ‘प्रज्ञा चक्षू’ खुले.

Osho’s meditation helped me in my journey till date. He himself told not to catch my words but try to look where i am pointing to, through my words.

I see a lot of followers of Osho has just got hold of his words!!!

तो कृपा करनामेरे शब्दों को भूल जाना। मैंने जो कहाउसे भूल जाना। मैंने जो बातें कहींउन्हेंविस्मरण कर देनाऔर जिस तरफ इशारा किया है और जिस तरफ आपके ध्यान को आकर्षितकरने कि चेष्टा की हैउस तरफ देखना।

पेज ६२आँखों देखी सांच – ओशो.१९९४ संस्करण.

Osho himself said that forget my words, forget my teachings and try to indulge in experience by experimenting. My words, teachings are like fingers pointing to the moon. Try to see the Moon that is real religiousness. 
Osho’s awareness meditation that helped me as below:
https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2641985275825745&id=188447071179590&ref=m_notif&notif_t=feedback_reaction_generic

For Osho’s philosophy on meditation:

Kabir’s ‘Saakhi’, in Hindi, meaning ‘someting to learn from given two line poem’.

Kabir’s ‘Saakhi’, in Hindi, meaning ‘someting to learn from given two line poem’.

https://aisdhammosanantano.wordpress.com/2019/10/07/kabirs-saakhi-in-hindi-meaning-someting-to-learn-from-given-two-line-poem/
— Read on aisdhammosanantano.wordpress.com/2019/10/07/kabirs-saakhi-in-hindi-meaning-someting-to-learn-from-given-two-line-poem/

Kabir says that all the four ‘Vedas’ of Hindu contains wisdom of ages for today’s people.

Kabir has written ‘Saakhi’ of two lines in such a way that they contain extract of all these ‘Vedas’ combine. So if these vedas be treated as milk then Kabir’s ‘Saakhi’ are like ‘Butter’.

These Saakhi with meaning in ‘My English’ – as i have little understanding of it, but directly from heart as i feel it right, so literal meaning be not taken but the essence out of it, which is flowing through words be grasped or tried.

Comments on it will clear the doubt to some extent. Writing what is experienced is already impossible but Kabir tried, so i should too try at least.

Be a watcher.

Witnessing is very powerful when the witnesser is lost. Whenever the no-mind or ego less state happens to coincide with witnessing – one may get a glimpse of inside ‘truth’ that liberates, then you are no more same person.
Kabir said that when outside and inside becomes one, then only you have achieved destiny as human being.
We know about the outside only. Inside is not even felt by many! How can one meet to whom you do not know? Only the inside can find you, there is no other way this is why it is beyond our control. Even if inside wishes to meet you in present moment, then you must be looking at it too, to be able to meet.

Osho advices to become watcher.


No-mind state makes you available in present moment, and witnessing lets you see yourself so that anything coming out can see you ‘watching’ at it. Simple.

Fear: Only wise can dare to check depth of water by feet.


If you fear something it means you do not know ‘Who you are?’.
Fear is always due to unknown, unexperienced or imaginary but well set as truth.
Now neither you know ‘Who you are?’ nor you know about that something you fear.
So there are two unknown, you are the reason for both too.
If you meditate a little, search inside to know ‘Who am i?’ by removing all layers like name, education, colour etc you gathered (came to know from others about you!) since birth then you will be able to know your ‘Original face’, said Lalon Fakhir of Bangladesh now its followers called as Baul – wandering musician singing song to people about knowing their ‘original face’ and respect nature as dutis of every human being.

Once you know any one of two – Yourself or Fear then just by knowing or understanding fear will vanish. Knowing fear is difficult because you can go on making new fear.
Once you have known your’self’ then fear will vanish altogether forever.
This is why ‘you are giving power’ to both by not knowing yourself, the more you postpone your inside journey, the more power fear have over you.

To know about meditation in busy life:

Awareness meditation

A wise person will be patient as well as consistent enough to wait for the favourable season to come for long time without loosing enthusiasm.

In Zen they say ‘Sit silently doing nothing, when season comes, the grass grows by itself green.’

By practicing meditation in daily life fear can vanish one day automatically, because fear is due to ‘presence of two’ in life. Happiness and sadness, win or loose etc etc.

This quantum jump or transformation in your inner being is described by saints of India as ‘गहरे पानी पैठ’ going deep inside water where both the shores meet and become one!

This is measuring deep water by standing at the bank! Fear vanishes immediately, because you have known your’self’. Now every time you need not have to prepare yourself against new fear as you age.

Only wise can do it, wisdom is what he get.

Zen in real life.

African Proverb

It is amazing that what Zen philosophy says in one way, the spiritual way, this african proverb says in material sense-more practical to understand Zen.

Zen people says that just sit silently, doing nothing, season comes and the grass grows itself green!

What worked well in a situation, shallow water, same may not work again if situations are changed, deep water.

Sometimes just leaving things for right time to come to do a job is good decision.

In extreme summer one can measure it using same technique!

Spiritual meaning: in material life much is easily achieved as everyone is living same life.

In spiritual journey a little growth happens when the time is right but it turns out to be quantum leap – like measuring depth of deep water with foot- just you need to keep practicing till then.

It is astonishing that except human being no animal eats once its hunger is satisfied. Other animals gather around Lion to eat the left overs once its hunger gets satisfied.
It seems human being remains hungry 24 hrs!
This is also strange connection, may be due to food, that only human being has no time/season to enter into sex. Every animal has its time/season.
By controlling food this proverb may be controlling the other strangely connected!
