The bird got so used to being in its cage

                                that even when the door was left open, it didn't fly out.  I marvel at how many

                                times I've stayed where I am, "uncomfortably comfortable," rather than to take a risk to

                                become new again.  This is the opposite of the Zen Mind, which is always new, always

                                fresh, and always alive.
