Daily Zen - Friday, August 17


There is much to be known...and above
all, much to be loved, be it the turn of
the seasons or the shape of a river pebble.
Indeed, the more we find to love, the more
we add to the measure of our hearts.

~ Lloyd Alexander

and he that is not ready to

The future is called "perhaps,"
which is the only possible thing
to call the future. And the important
thing is not to allow that to scare you.

The first key to wisdom 
is assiduous and frequent 
questioning. For by doubting 
we come to inquiry and by 
inquiry we arrive at the truth.

I live my life based on two 
principles. One, I live as if today
was my last day on earth. 
Two, I live today as if I am 
going to live forever.

If we learn to keep our mind quiet through meditation, 
to just stay present with our feelings, to connect with 
our heart, to let go of the story lines, and to directly 
feel all the unpleasant sensations associated with our 
emotional hurts, then the heart will open and we can 
approach each situation from a wider perspective.

I'm thinking about people and trees 
and how I wish I could be silent more, 
be more tree than anything else, less clumsy 
and loud, less crow, more cool white pine, and 
how it's hard not to always want something else, 
not just to let the savage grass grow.

~ Ada Limón

What may look like a small act of courage 
is courage nonetheless. The important thing
is to be willing to take a step forward.
