A large meadow

 

The great Suzuki Roshi’s classic image on how meditation develops space in our lives and allows us work with whatever challenging thoughts arise: 

The way to control your sheep or cow is

to give him a large, spacious meadow .

Shunryu Suzuki, Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind

One thought on “A large meadow

  1. I think a clue to how this feels is when we see/stand in front of a wide, spacious meadow.
