I recently watched 'March of the Penguins' on TV and couldn't help but notice that those wonderful creatures are truly practicing the Way. They must overcome seemingly unsurmountable difficulties: extreme cold, hunger, sleep deprivation, traversing vast distances, attacks from predators, protecting their offspring, etc. How do they do it? I'm convinced that they do it by living in the present moment. They do what needs to be done, here and now, irrespective of what hardships they may have endured in the past and how incredibly small their chance of success in the future may be. They don't entertain thoughts about these things and they don't have a distracting ego which can become distraught or conceited. Like true Bodhisattvas, they expect no reward. If they fail, they just fail and if they succeed, they just succeed. And then they just carry on, moment by moment. I think we can learn a lot from them.
