It's not easy being who we are. And, yet, our problems do not arise from who we are, but from what we do with what we are.
We manage our image, so that others cannot see the truth. We delude ourselves, so that we cannot see the truth. Trouble inevitably ensues.
Sincere practice brings us into the light. We no longer hide out - the first step to a responsible life.
Kermit has no problem with responsibility. While he struggles with his greenness, he exposes his struggle to anyone who cares to look.
In this way, he uses his life to help all beings.
Thank you for reading Ox Herding. Best wishes for the weekend!
