Myth is the experience of life. The mind has to do with meaning. What’s the meaning of a flower? There’s a Zen story about a sermon of the Buddha in which he simply lifted a flower. There was only one man who gave him a sign with his eyes that he understood what was said. Now, the Buddha himself is called “the one thus come.” There’s no meaning. What’s the meaning of the universe? It’s just there. That’s it. And your own meaning is that you’re there. We’re so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget that the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it’s all about.
who delivers care and nurturing and support to your heart?
inquiry for today~ maybe it’s a sweet day to offer yourself a little trinket and a word of kindness…. all wrapped up and ready for a picnic…..
You deserve flowers on your doorstep and coffee in the morning.
You deserve notes left on your dashboard
and ice cream sundaes at 3am.
You deserve honesty every day and to be kissed every hour.
You deserve to be reminded how beautiful you are.
