“Ask The Horse!”

I love this Zen story:

A man is riding a horse which is galloping quickly. He seems to be going somewhere very important.

Another man, who is looking by the side of the road, shouted:

“Hey! Where are you going?”

“I don’t know!” the man shouted back. “Ask the horse!”

I think that pretty much sums up our lives. We are riding a horse which we cannot control. We may think we are going somewhere, but we don’t know where, and why.
