Do you know this Zen Story?
« on: September 16, 2009, 03:13:48 PM »
Some days ago, i read a zen story. I am not able to find it again on the net. does any one know this story:

few fishes lived in a flowing river. Afraid that they would get hit, they used to hold tightly to the banks [mudholes where they lived]. needless to say their lives were miserable. Coz they always lived in fear that they may slip...
and one day, one little fish slipped ... and Lo! rather than being a cause for sorrow ... slipping was a blessing in disguise. Only then did it know that Life was a joy ride ... it is was real fun .... it shouted to its friends "Let Go and See" ... but they did not here ... and before long, his voice could no more reach them!

Let Go and See! that is surrender to God.
