Everything natural—every flower,
tree, and animal—has important
lessons to teach us if we would 
only stop, look, and listen.

To me, poetry is somebody standing up,
so to speak, and saying, with as little
concealment as possible, what it is for
him or her to be on earth at this moment.

Happiness is your nature.
It is not wrong to desire it.
What is wrong is seeking it
outside when it is inside.

Our real nature is liberation,
but we imagine we are bound.
We thus make strenuous 
efforts to become free while, 
all the while, we are free.

Daily Zen - Thursday, September 13


Mindfulness meditation doesn't 
change life. Life remains as fragile
and unpredictable as ever. 
Meditation changes the heart's 
capacity to accept life as it is.

You must live in the present,
launch yourself on every wave,
find your eternity in each moment.

Daily Zen - Thursday, September 6


Meditation is simply about being
yourself and knowing something
about who that is. It is about
coming to realize that you are 
on a path whether you like it or not,
namely, the path that is your life.

~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

Change will not come if we wait
for some other person or some
other time. We are the ones 
we've been waiting for. We are 
the change that we seek.

~ Barack Obama

Weekend Zen, September 1-2


There are those whose lives 
affect all others around them,
quietly touching one heart,
who in turn, touches another,
reaching out to ends further
than they would ever know.

~ William Bradfield
