The people of the Iroquois Nation stir their coffee counterclockwise. They do their ceremonial dances counterclockwise. They pass food around the dining table counterclockwise. Why, because they do not go against THE FORCES OF NATURE. The earth spins counterclockwise. When they fill a drinking bucket of water from a creek, they pull the bucket with the current. Why, so they will not go against THE FORCES OF NATURE and go with the current.
We should assist others in their quest to progress in the workplace. The CREATOR put us here to assist others, we should not go against THE FORCES OF NATURE. When we do assist others, when we are shown GRATITUDE for the support given we then get a feeling of satisfaction. THAT IS ADVANCING WITH THE FORCES OF NATURE.
We all should make the effort to work together and find THE COMMON GOAL. Share the knowledge for the purpose of achieving the aim. ADVANCE WITH THE FORCES OF NATURE. DO NOT BE A PERSON THAT STIRS THEIR COFFEE CLOCKWISE. The feeling of sharing and pursuing a COMMON GOAL with others, is a feeling of being ALIVE, HAPPINESS, STIMULATING. IT IS SIMPLE BECAUSE IT IS A FORCE OF NATURE.
“PASS THE FOOD AROUND THE TABLE COUNTERCLOCKWISE,” ADVANCE WITH THE FORCES OF NATURE. IT WILL BE COMFORTABLE, NATURAL, PEACEFUL, EFFORTLESS AND OBLIGING. IT IS EASIER TO WALK WITH THE WIND TO YOUR BACK. ADVANCE WITH THE FORCES OF NATURE.

I will definitely start stirring my coffee counter clockwise! My favorite part of the post was about showing gratitude! I’m so grateful that I have your posts to read every week and of course your friendship. 💜
God, help me to let go of my need to control and to be open to the flow
of the universe.

A man was rowing his boat upstream on a very misty morning. Suddenly, he saw another boat coming downstream, not trying to avoid him. It was coming straight at him. He shouted, “Be careful! Be careful!” but the boat came right into him, and his boat was almost sunk. The man became very angry, and began to shout at the other person, to give him a piece of his mind. But when he looked closely, he saw that there was no one in the other boat. It turned out that the boat just got loose and went downstream. All his anger vanished, and he laughed and he laughed.
