Default Does this sound familiar?

Hello,

There is a Buddhist Support thread we have going over in Support Groups-->Faith-Based Support. Here is a story posted over there that people of all philosophies might find interesting:

AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN FIVE CHAPTERS

1) I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost . . . I am hopeless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

2) I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I can't believe I'm in the same place.
But it isn't my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

3) I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in . . . it's a habit.
My eyes are open
I know where I am
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.

4) I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

5) I walk down another street.


From THE TIBETAN BOOK OF LIVING AND DYING by Sogyal Rinpoche

Thanks for sharing! It is very interesting and sounds very familiar to me. I will have to print it out and read it over and over.
