Lions Roar : January 2010
39 SHAMBHALA SUN JANUARY 2010 Zen Student: “When times of great difficulty visit us, how should we greet them?” Teacher: “Welcome.” The neW WorlD looks surprisingly like the old one, except that it’s differ- ent. a year ago housing prices fell off a cliff and mortgages went underwater. Today, the hardware store is still quiet and the busy suburban hairdresser is empty on a Friday. pho- bia about spending makes other people phobic too—a great university declares a hiring freeze, and a clinic is threatened with shutting down because it can’t afford to replace a receptionist who earns nine dollars an hour. The construction sites have filled with water and the bulldozers are silent. We are now in the new world. in the new world, winter is still cold, summer is still warm, bread, cheese, pickled onion, and a glass of ale is still a ploughman’s lunch, the sky still has windows of translucent distance at sunset after rain, and a wet dog still smells like a wet dog. perhaps it’s fine in the new world. perhaps we don’t have to waste this crisis in wailing and gnashing our teeth. phoTo©sWeeThearT29/DreamsTime.Com
