Koan #5

The wise don’t strive to arrive.

Zen Master Shunryu Suzuki says, “What is more important, to make a million dollars, or enjoy your effort, little by little, even though it is impossible to make that million? To be successful, or to find some meaning in your efforts to succeed?”

We should give up goal orientation and simply be. Life is not about getting somewhere in a hurry, but enjoying the journey to the full.
