Ride After the Right Things

Ride After the Right Things

A woman and her son were sitting near the side of a country road.

From a distance, the two saw a horse galloping down the road towards them.

Taking the horse’s speed into account, they assumed the rider had somewhere very important to go.

As the horse and rider flew by the boy and his mother, the boy shouted,

“Where are you going?”

The man on the horse shouted back, “I don’t know, ask the horse!”

Habits and patterns have an energy of their own, as suggested in this old Zen story.

As we ride into the new year, remember that we must not sit on the back of old habits and patterns.

There is nothing wrong with riding after something; just be certain that you know why it is important to you. How are you ensuring that you ride after the right things this year?
