Day 117

Nature, Our Teacher

 

Do you know the way?

To travel the mountain path at night

Is the path well tried?

Just know the moonlight highlights your stepping-stones

Do you know the wisdom of the mountain?

There is no falling down the mountain as long as your legs are moving.

 

Do you know the way?

To swim the darkened channels at all

Do you know the progress?

Just know that the cool currents will guide you there

Do you know the wisdom of the ocean?

There is not fighting the current, its best to acquiesce

 

Do you know the way?

To travel the forest trails at dawn?

Have you tried the terrain well?

Just know that there are perils along the route you choose

Do you know the wisdom of the forest?

To get lost in the wild only to find your true self in the end
