Goldilocks wasn’t sure which path she should take. But that didn’t bother her.

“I’m not really lost, and I’m not found,” she reminded herself. “I’m just in the forest.”

Then in an opening was a house with one big room in it. She walked in to look around and saw a table set for three, with bowls and spoons.

“There isn’t a big bowl, a medium bowl and a little bowl. There are just bowls.”

So she sat down in the first chair, tried the second chair and finally the third.

As she finished her oatmeal, she saw three beds in a corner . . .
You get the idea.

When the three bears came home and discovered her asleep, they expected her to run away. But she just sat up in the bed and looked at them.

“Aren’t you afraid?” they asked. “The last girl ran away.”

“Why should I be afraid?” she asked back. “This is your house and your bed.”

And that’s how bears learned about Zen.
