Searching Like a Cod
Val Boyko posted this on her blog Find Your Middle Ground. It’s a beautiful reminder that the optimal place to be is where one already is. If we are mindful we can seek out the little things that we already have and explore any discomfort we feel, finding the courage to be with no solid footing.
When the innumerable searches are concluded,
The realization dawns that
The optimal place to be is
Where one already is.
It is an arrival at the place
Where there is no solid footing beneath,
The understanding of all things.
Until the conclusion,
The searcher is like
A cod asking directions to the ocean
~ Wu Hsin from “The Lost Writings” translated by Roy Melvyn
Wu Hsin’s insights into spirituality and Oneness always bring a smile.
It isn’t easy learning to go with the flow, until we stop asking for directions, and find the courage to be with no solid footing.
