Around and around we go in life, enjoying the whirling merry go round.
Up and down the ride proceeds as we wait for the golden ring. Then, at last, dizzy and unsettled, the time comes when it’s no longer fun. The spinning wearies us. We long for something else. Suddenly we realize that the ride goes nowhere.
It also becomes clear that the golden ring doesn’t satisfy, or stop the chase we’re on. Now it is time to step onto the firm earth.
That moment of recognition is vital. That moment of recognition may be frightening or depressing even, but it’s a sacred moment. One era is over and we’re ready for a new way of being to appear.
How do we take that step off the
merry go round. Where does it lead us and what happens?
Zen practice shows us that it is simple and natural. It is also inevitable that we will be guided along our way.
