A Brief Thought...

Not really/specifically a Buddhist one, but here's something interesting I found today:

People are often drawn to the beliefs that provide the most comfort, rather than those that best correspond to reality. -- Sherry F. Colb

You could call this a form of grasping in a way. Or maybe it's just simpler and we can call it laziness as most people don't want to do the work to get truly "free". It's easier to just believe than it is to do it.

Oh gosh how true..thats the real challenge for me in turning towards a Zen practice, It can seem awfully cold at first - - but, with the Zazen practice the deeper meanings of it all begin to come out and you feel the immense connections that really make life this wonderful joyous mystery!!
