Our choices are not always as simple as they seem…


A man walking across a field encountered a tiger.

He fled, the tiger chasing after him.

Coming to a cliff, he caught hold of a wild vine

and swung himself over the edge.

The tiger sniffed at him from above.

Terrified, the man looked down to where, below,

another tiger had come, waiting to eat him.

Two mice, one white and one black,

little by little began to gnaw away at the vine.

The man saw a luscious strawberry near him.

Grasping the vine with one hand,

he plucked the strawberry with the other.

How sweet it tasted!

Zen Parable

Our choices are not always as simple as they seem.

But they are our choices……

Have a great weekend family,

Peace
