Daily Zen - Monday, October 15

Whatever your difficulties—a devastated heart, 
financial loss, feeling assaulted by the conflicts
around you, or a seemingly hopeless illness—
you can always remember that you are free 
in every moment to set the compass of 
your heart to your highest intentions.

~ Jack Kornfield

If I could define enlightenment
briefly, I would say it is the

Daily Zen - Thursday, October 11

Consider the sunlight. You may say that 
it is near, yet if you pursue it from world to world 
you will never catch it. You may say that it is far, 
yet it is right before your eyes. Chase it and it always
eludes you; run from it and it is always there. 
From this you can understand how it is 
with the true nature of all things.

~ Huang-Po

and be kind to yourself. Trust me,

Everything natural—every flower,

lessons to teach us if we would 
only stop, look, and listen.
