The other side of the river- A Monk Story

"One day a young Buddhist on his journey home, came to the banks of a wide river. Staring hopelessly at the great obstacle in front of him, he pondered for hours on just how to cross such a wide barrier. Just as he was about to give up his pursuit to continue his journey he saw a great teacher on the other side of the river. The young Buddhist yells over to the Master, "Oh wise one, can you tell me how to get to the other side of this river"? The Master ponders for a moment looks up and down the river and yells back, "My son, you are on the other side"."

Sometimes we are in the right side of the river and we keep trying to go to the other one. We need to understand what we want in our life, what type work, what type of friends, what type of relationships... it is not easy to decide, things change all the time, what seems to be the right thing to do today, can be the worst thing to do tomorrow, but thats how life is, like a river, always moving, trying to reach the sea. We can swim the river, dogde rocks, trying not to be drown, wishing to find our ocean where we will finally find our treasures.

Or maybe we can walk following the river and reach the sea without get wet...
I will ask the Master...
