A Wave to the Present
Posted in Metaphor, One minute unlearning, Parable
The traveler and the child were walking along the beach when a large wave swept over all of their past footprints.
“What’s the point,” sighed the child. “It’s as if we were never here.” Looking ahead the child then added, “And future waves will do the same to all our next steps.”
“True,” replied the traveler, “but you’re missing the most important part of the experience.”
Just then another wave washed over their feet and the traveler lifted a foot to reveal a single footprint. With a sly smile he said, “Enjoy now.”
