Mother Teresa and the Zen Master

Mother Teresa and the Zen Master

A Zen Master was asked, “What is the path?”
He answered, without hesitation,
“Everyday life is the path.”
The mundane and commonplace events
of our everyday life
is where we discover God.

Mother Teresa said,
“You can and you must expect suffering.”
None of us has any choice when it comes to pain.
Pain and suffering catches us all.
The only choice we have in the matter
is what we do with it.
Christ hopes we transform our pain,
that we go from the cross to the resurrection…
and that is the true path.
