Red Thread Comment

As a lover of the Zen koan, I've been contemplating the "Red Thread" for awhile.  The traditional question is "Songyuan asked, Why can't clear-eyed Bodhisattvas sever the red thread?"  I've attached a red thread to my car mirror and meditate on this during the many long car trips I've made in the last six months.
