your legacy

For thirty years I searched for a master swordsman.

How many times did the leaves fall,

and the branches burst into bud?

But from the moment I saw the peach blossoms,

I’ve had no doubts.

It can be a shock- the heart coming forth. Anything, anything that we meet, is a peach blossom. An email about cancer, a phone call, the winter moonrise. When we truly meet any part of the universe, we recognize it. It feels like I’m seeing my own face. The things I thought I needed to be happy, I don’t need. I don’t need the perfectly respectable life that everyone wants. Mainly I don’t need to know what happens next. My own life is an unknown path through peach blossoms.

the dreamlike quality of your life is a guide from beyond….

inquiry for today~   our immeasurable joys and sorrows are held in the light we notice…..

to dream in color

I used to dream about escaping my ordinary life, but my life was never ordinary.

I had simply failed to notice how extraordinary it was.
