We're continuing from Jack Kornfield, but this week he offers a beautiful piece by Donald Babcock: Now we are ready to look at something pretty special. It is a duck riding the ocean a hundred feet beyond the surf, as he cuddles into the swells. There is a big heaving in the [ocean], and he is part of it. He can rest while the [ocean] heaves because he rests in the [ocean]. Probably he doesn't know how large the ocean is. And neither do [we]. But he realizes it. And what does he do, I ask you? He sits down in it. He reposes in the immediate as if it were infinity - which it is. That is [spiritual practice], and the duck has it. How about you?
