        That which eludes us and
        seems to stay just out of
        our grasp, holds an incredible
        fascination and attraction.

        The anticipation (fanciful
        notion) that we will one day
        prevail and actually capture
        that elusive something gives
        life a certain purpose...albeit
        a superficial one. Yet, it
        is such an appealing counterfeit,
        this dream of success, that it
        can displace success itself,
        and become a lifelong quest.

        It is the thrill of the hunt,
        the pressing journey of the
        aspirant, that can be so
        captivating that the "seeker"
        refuses to ever totally give
        up the hunt for the prize...
        and yet seems to be so fervently
        bent on finally reaching the
        summit, bagging the bird,
        gnawing on nirvana.

        The aspirants bemoan the
        fact that they have searched
        for so long, and yet...
        they seem to play a part
        in sabotaging the hunt.

        It is the ego that has
        them stuck. It's a favorite
        wile of the coyote to
        double-back on its prey.

        In this case, Wile E has
        double-backed on himself.
        To actually catch and devour
        that bird would end his
        treasured identity of a
        fervent seeker, and he
        (the metaphorical seeker)
        is not sure that the prize
        will be as good as the
        heart-pounding adventure
        of the chase.

        The snare of the fowler.
        A blind-side blitz.

          Yo PapaJeff,
          This is really a brilliant in-sight
          into how to look at all of life. The
          message is always presenting itself,
          and it need not be found just in such
          traditional wisdom resources as Mullah
          Nasrudin or Roadrunner tales. You have
          here well demonstrated what an ongoing
          conscious of the cosmic consiousness
          can witness and then share with (there
          "really" are no) others. Thanks!
          Peace and blessings,
          Bob
