Life is a matter of perspective. There was a young Zen monk walking along a riverbank looking for a place to cross over to the other side. He finally saw an old monk on the other of the river so he yelled “How do I get to the other side of the river”? The old monk thought for a moment and then yelled back, “You are on the other side of the river”! Having a sense of perspective can help us to understand life a little better. We are all searching for happiness but happiness is often like the glasses that are sitting upon our nose. Happiness is not “out there”. Happiness is right in front of us. Pay attention and you will find it.
