Teaching Story - The joy of surrender
by Life Positive
He hobbled over to the well and, looking at his reflection, remarked, "My, how the Creator is changing my shape!"
Ssu was surprised at how at ease his friend seemed, and asked, ďAre you really not upset at all?Ē
Yu answered, ďNot a bit: what is there to be upset about? Maybe tomorrow Iíll awake, and my left arm will be changed into a rooster, and Iíll announce the dawn; or, perhaps, the Creator will make my right arm into a crossbow and Iíll go out and hunt for dinner.
| "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle."
- Albert Einstein
ďI was born when the time came, and I will similarly die at the appointed hour. When you fight against reality, you lose: thatís just the way things have always been. So, instead, I am content with whatever life presents to me, and therefore immune to both sorrow and joy. Thatís why Iím not upset.Ē
-From the sixth chapter of the Chuang Tzu
