POINT OF ENTRY
* "Where You are Right Now is your Point of Entry,"
Deepak Chopra, M.D.
What does this mean? I took a moment to ponder. I pictured "all views, all creatures, all plant life" and more at their unique moments to moments points of views! I chuckled out loud. I got up and left the room for a moment to clear my imagination.
Point of Entry~Point of Exit?
Then I saw in my imagination a Chinese poem, "Cold Mountain Temple" also known in English as the Maple Bridge Night Poem. Travelers get on the boat and off the boat at various stops along the way. Temple Bells Ring, evening comes with lights reflecting in water.
** Next I pictured Duma, the Cheetah. Duma, an orphan, was rescued by a young boy. The lad raised Duma and was ready to release him into the wild. A traveler accompanied Duma and the boy in a small boat floating down a river. A similar conversation about life occurred. The sage said, "Duma will get on the boat and Duma will get off the boat just like you and me."
Right Now is your Point of Entry. What will your day bring?
"Now is the Moment that Never Ends," Deepak Chopra
