Joy


A story/metaphor from a book I am reading:

There is a story of a woman running away from tigers. She runs and runs, and the tigers are getting closer and closer. When she comes to the edge of the cliff, she sees some vines there, so she climbs down and holds onto the vines. Looking down, she sees that there are tigers below her as well. She then notices that a mouse is gnawing away at the vine to which she is clinging. She also sees a beautiful little bunch of strawberries close to her, growing out of a patch of grass. She looks down, she looks up. She looks at the mouse. Then she just takes a strawberry, puts it in her mouth, and enjoys it thoroughly....
