Zen and the Art of Farming.

A farmer had only one horse.  One day, his horse ran away.  All the neighbors came by saying, “I’m so sorry.  This is such bad news.  You must be so upset.”

The farmer just said, “We’ll see.”

Several days later, the horse returned with twenty wild horses. The farmer and his only son corralled all of them. All the neighbors came by saying, “Congratulations!  This is such good news.  You must be so happy!”

The farmer just said, “We’ll see.”

The following day, one of the wild horses kicked the farmer’s son, breaking both of his legs.  All the neighbors came by saying, “I’m so sorry.  This is such bad news.  You must be so upset.”

The farmer just said, “We’ll see.”

The country went to war, and every able-bodied young man was drafted to fight.  The war was long and gruesome and killed every man from the village, but the farmer’s son was spared, since his broken legs prevented him from the battlefield.

All the neighbors came by saying, “Congratulations!  This is such good news. You must be so happy!”

The farmer just said, “We’ll see.”

Skip the assessment.
Can the conclusions.
And just wonder.
Life is moving.

Neutrality can be a divine act.

You’ll see.
