Wisdom from the Zen Tradition

From of old there were not two paths. “Those who have arrived” all walked the same road.

-Zenrin, The Gospel According to Zen

Two paths are one
Two paths are one

  1. I like this quote and its premise. “Those who have arrived” reminds me of one of my favorite poems by David Whyte, “The Journey,” with its last lines of “you are not leaving, you are arriving.”

    • Thank you, Theresa. I enjoy David Whyte’s poetry. I have had the opportunity to hear him “read” poetry; that is special. Blessings! Pat
