Let go of the shore.

Let go!

When I woke up this morning  my first thoughts were about being a river. I saw very clearly the things that keep me clinging to the shore.  Zen uses the river as an example of how to live a life in flow.  Whoever I am still carrying and wherever I perseverate is me clinging to the shore. We don’t have to stay on the shore. Comfort is also the shore.  That’s why Zen says stay moving. I see self inflicted torture as standing on the shore watching life go by, they are the thoughts that keep us from jumping in and letting nature deliver. When I got up and  I looked at new emails  there was one from my sister:

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some
blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a
spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
