Koan Comfort

There is a Zen koan that goes, “If you want to find something, you have to stop looking.” It finds me tonight while watching a movie. I was, for a moment, surprised; then I started laughing. This is something I know and had forgotten. Silly me.

It feels kind of good to really feel as if I’m stopping looking. In fact, the one place I had been somewhat stopping and starting within is being stripped of all such intention tonight.

No need for a third cat. I think maybe it’s time to just enjoy what I have; you know, stop looking and enjoy what is here.

Yes. Definitely. It feels good. 😉
