A zen tale

Once there was a man who was chased by a tiger to a ledge. On the ledge was a overhanging tree and below the tree was a sheer drop of much distance.

The tiger tried to find a way down the branch that the man hung on while the man evaluated his options. To go up was to be lunch for the big cat. To go down was to die from gravity.

Then he saw a wild strawberry within his arm’s reach. He reached for the strawberry and it was the best he had ever tasted.

Lesson: life is here now; cherish it.

Don’t make limitations your God. Make what nourishes you that.
