Old Freight Train of Karma

Individual karma that we are compelled to carry with us makes us like little old freight trains. We are heavily loaded with shipping containers of maybe Nike tennis shoes wherever we go. Another container might have toxic chemicals going to some far off waste dump, yet another, delicate refrigerated lettuce. This car here holds relationships we shoved back there so we no longer look at them, but still there clakity clacking on the track, not free to leave to explore the world! That one has pickles from Alaska, peaches from Alabama, or just junk we picked up in our travels. Cows in one car, tigers in another. All moving heavily along lifes’ track! ~Domo Geshe Rinpoche
