Play Quotes

Golf is a fascinating game. It has taken me nearly forty years to discover that I can't play it.

We could say that meditation doesn't have a reason or doesn't have a purpose. In this respect it's unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don't do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.

Weve gotta roll with the punches Learn to play all of our hunches. Makin the best of whatever comes your way. Forget that blind ambition And learn to trust your intuition. Plowin straight ahead come what may.
