After stretching one morning, getting ready for the day, a mantra suddenly came to me…
On the path,
I have many doubts —
but if I keep my focus,
I know they won’t last.
As I was stretching, expanding, breathing, for a brief moment I felt focused and not binary. Looking straight ahead at the world. Not down or to the side. But I could see clear and straight and proud, and without any fear.
This is how the wolf sees, I thought to myself.
And this is how I'd like to see more often... to cultivate my own clear-sight and bravery and to be free beyond worries or doubts... if only for brief moments like this.
