What Is the State of Your Being Right Now?

Musashi's horse. Uncannily alert, & 
seemingly ready to jump off the scroll.

What is the state of your being right now?

Are you torn by thoughts, full of regrets & anguish about the past, uncomfortable with the here & now, jumpy, sad, & anxious about the future?

Or are you subtle, at ease, joyous, relaxed, full of present awareness, like a wineskin full of wine? [Though maybe smelling of pitch. One always has one's reasons.]

This simple diagnosis that you can do on yourself will tell you all that you need to know about your next step. Will it not?

[Step off the hundred foot pole, fall like snow through ten thousand miles of dark & empty space, & behold the horse's quivering nostrils.]
