"No matter how much you feed the wolf, he keeps staring at the forest." - Ilse Lehiste

    The Way


    All at once I found myself on the banks of a mountain stream. A vision, a clarity of mind that had rarely been seen before.

    The ripples, the waves, the tumultuous unrelenting flow of the water, of its Way.

    - My eyes enchanted by a falling leaf. A dance, a swaying, this way and that.

    No presumptions, no destination.

    - I watched that leaf for a while. Watched it fall to the water, not a care in the world.

    I watched the stream.

    -

    Both carried on their Way.

    Neither pushing nor following, trapped nor free.

    - I knew in that moment that my course was no different, that it never could be. ​
