The Frog Principle -by Andrew Matthews

An old and well-worn metaphor; but I agree: it is particularly important to remember and review where we are. Is the water a bit too warm? Jobs said it best: “if the answer has been ‘no’ too many days in a row”…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UF8uR6Z6KLc

The Frog Principle – By Andrew Matthews

There is an often-quoted story of a frog and a bucket of water.   It Illustrates the law of deterioration…

If you take an intelligent, happy frog and drop him into a bucket of boiling water, what will the Frog do?  Jump Out! Instantly,  the frog decides  “This is no fun – I’m gone!”.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
