of THE COYOTE
It's tough to be alone
It's difficult to work in teamwork
It's impossible to plan the future
It's frustrating to depend on other people
It's hard to shape a dream into reality
It's lonely to realize freedom
It's crowded to be wanted
It's confusing to guess what's right
The only way to live is to be your dream
When people look at photos of me (with
my super-happy smile) I hope that they will realize that innumerable
obstacles plagued me. Friends deserted me, lovers cheated, coworkers
lied, and employers cheated me. The happiness in my world is not luck
or circumstance. I created my realities and comforts through incredible
effort and persistence.
As importan t as what I created is what
I have ingnored.
The despair, misfortune, bad luck,
resistance, deceit, and disappointments were best forgotten immediately.
Neither success or failure exist in
Only our perceptions continue with
"Hmmm, kind of a Zen Thing, already, forming here."
Oration from the CD by American Zen, LEVEL 1 = Peace Of Mind.
