Now I do understand it. I will tell you what it is: Does this path have a heart? All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. They are paths going through the bush, or into the bush. In my own life I could say I have traveled long, long paths, but I am not anywhere. My benefactor’s question has meaning now. Does this path have a heart? If it does, this path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn’t. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens your life. -Don Carlos*
Look just up ahead there is a shady place to rest. Green grass carpet beneath a full, spreading maple; the ground looks and smells dry: comfortable and invitingly free of crawling friends. Yes this is as good a place as any to put down my head for the night.
