“Be soft in your [life]. Think of [it] as a fine silvery stream, not a raging waterfall. Follow the stream, have faith in its course. It will go its own way, meandering here, trickling there. It will find the grooves, the cracks, the crevices. Just follow it. Never let it out of your sight. It will take you.”

Taiwanese Zen Master Sheng-yen (see post of Friday, Dec. 23)

  1. Thank you Peter for this poem. I am so taken with it that I have added it to my profile on Gaia… right after another favorite that has come to my attention through you…

    Empty-handed I entered the world
    Barefoot I leave it.
    My coming, my going –
    Two simple happenings
    That got entangled.
