This is a GREAT story to feel during your divorce. It is about a boy and a Zen master.

          “On his sixteenth birthday the boy gets a horse as a present. All of the people in the village say, ‘Oh, how wonderful?’

          The Zen master says, ‘We’ll see.’

          One day, the boy is riding and gets thrown off the horse and hurts his leg. He is no longer able to walk, so all of the villagers say, ‘How terrible!’

          The Zen master says, ‘We’ll see.’

          Some time passes and the village goes to war. All of the other young men get sent off to fight, but this boy can’t fight because his leg is messed up. All of the villagers say, ‘How wonderful!’

          The Zen master say, ‘We’ll see.’”

          Stop believing whether something is “good” or “bad.”  It is neither. Good/bad is merely a “spectrum.” Reality is your perception. As the Buddha stated, “live joyfully in a world of sorrow!”

          “WE’LL SEE”
