there is never enough light

If there were no confusion

there would be no wisdom.

~Chögyam Trungpa

sometimes I forget where to look….

inquiry for today~ how do you notice wisdom in the trees?

being under sky

One of the most profound teachings is also the shortest: “I have arrived.”

When we return to our breathing, we return to the present moment, our true home.

There’s no need for us to struggle to arrive somewhere else. We know our final destination is the cemetery.

Why are we in a hurry to get there? Why not step in the direction of life, which is in the present moment?

If we practice walking meditation for even a few days, we will undergo a deep transformation

and learn how to enjoy peace in each moment.

We smile, and countless beings throughout the cosmos smile back at us – our peace is so deep.

Everything we think, feel, and do has an effect on our ancestors and future generations

and reverberates throughout the cosmos.

~Thich Nhat Hanh
