Animal Zen Masters: The Crocodile

Nature delivers the greatest Zen masters in learning how to live in the presence.


I was watching a crocodile documentary on Discovery channel. When a crocodile is swimming the only thing you see, smoothly gliding to the water, are its eyes and the tip of the nose.

Only when a prey is nearby the crocodile ejects himself from the water with tremendous power and water fountains, showing his whole body and strength. A Nile crocodile for example has a biting power of 2268 kilos.

Only be big and ferocious when it’s necessary,
be small and humble when it is not.
