    The Zen of Running by Fred Rohe

    From the book:

    This experience is
    a newly discovered
    form of meditation
    or
    one more way
    for you
    to discover you.

    whatever you do
    with your running,
    you only cheat yourself
    by pushing, pressing, competing.
    There are no standards
    and no possible victories except
    the joy you are living
    while dancing your run.
    in any life
    joy is only known
    in this moment — now!

    so feel the flow
    of your dance
    and know
    you are not running
    for some future reward --
    the real reward is now!

        in the running
        in the run
        --- now ---
        why not start
        now?

    The Zen of Running, by Fred Rohé, 1974

    _______________________

    A fascinating running book, The Zen of Running by Fred Rohe published in 1974 started in 1969.

    A free downloadable PDF version is available at Fred Rohe's current website: www.naturalhealthyellowpages.com

    It is a wonderful thing that Fred has made his book freely available. I can only imagine that it has touched many folks all over the world. Blessings to him for that.

    Luckily, I have a hard copy of the book from 1974. I really love it.
