APRIL FOOL'S DAY, EVERY DAY

DUPPING ISN'T COOL

Most of us have heard this
ancient proverb:
"Fool rush in where angels
fear to thread."
My Guru taught me that
if you're not on guard to the
wiles, tricks, and deceptions
of others, every day will be
April's Fool DAY.
P.T. Barnum, the circus
tycoon operated on the theory
that a "sucker is born every minute."
Making a fool out of a person
can start as a deliberate behavior
or it can drift into one before it is realized.
When you choose to make a fool
out of someone, you have made
the bigger fool of YOURSELF.
TRUTH, which is a rare jewel today,
is twisted into a lie by making
a fool out of a person who tends
to be open and honest.
My teacher also warned:
"Yes, it is true that everybody
is somebody's fool."
BEWARE OF APRIL FOOL'S DAY,
don't let it sneak up on you TODAY.
