I don’t know, but it’s a question I want to answer. That’s not entirely true—I have some ideas:
- I want to have a healthy and fit body. I don’t like the fact that I’m as heavy as I am. Progress is being made on this front.
- I want to have a happy and healthy relationship. ‘Nuf said.
- I want to be a good mom.
- I want to be successful in my job.
- I want to enjoy financial success in my life.
Okay, so maybe I do know where I want to go. What I don’t know is how to get there. As I’m writing this, I hear the voice of the Dalai Lama in my head: “Humans all simply want to be happy and free from suffering.”
Ayup. And I do know where that starts—it’s a little round black cushion that belongs under my ass.
Today’s koan: how can things be in such turmoil and still be okay? Yet they are, when I allow myself to see it.
Que sera sera.
