Even though i'm no authority of any kind, a humble ordained Zen Priest, and just an modest fool at best, today i want to talk about power and oranges.
So please read along.
So a person of power goes astray.
It does not matter if it is a Politician, Zen teacher, Cook or Friend.
It is all the same, once you put a person up there, sometimes they will fail you.
It will happen all the time, everywhere you put them.
There's no escape.
The important point is not that they sometimes do, but what YOU do when they do.
What are you going to do, freak out or eat orange?
We can't really know until we are there, can we?
All we can do is as best we can, always.
And remember, don't loose the orange.
