Immense. Expansive. Transformational.
A few months ago can feel like a lifetime. Settled into a shrine room with sixty other humans to sit in silence for a week. Then comes life. The hassles. The hustle. The micro and macro dramas come up. While we can’t cling to the past we can find a way to connect to the essence of that moment as it repeats itself everyday, now a composite part of our living breathing self. We can make a moment to touch the earth, find that ground and acknowledge our basic goodness. This photo reminds me of my basic goodness, reminds me that in the chaos of the transient life that I am still worthy of my seat. It reminds me to wake up, sit like a mountain, and stay open.
