The Lesson Reiterated
When I turned on the television, halfway through the program, The Guru had already begun her closing remarks. I heard her say, “Crucial to finding the way is this: there is no beginning or end.”
Since I’d tuned in at about the halfway mark, I surmised that she was right about there being no beginning (for me, at least). Since I was already late for my appointment, I turned the set off again, thereby disproving the second half of her assertion—or so I thought.
I recognize, though, that halfway through something can still be a starting point, and that terminating The Guru’s remarks does not constitute an ending to the wisdom being offered.
I’d like to think that I’m self-enlightened, but I know I’ve got this Guru (and countless others before her) to thank for whatever wisdom I have gained over the years.
