Two Thoughts

"How boundless and free is the sky of Awareness!
How bright the full moon of wisdom!
Truly, is anything missing now?
Nirvana is right here, before our eyes; this very place is the Lotus Land; this very body, the Buddha."

-Hakuin Zenji, “Song of Zazen”

"People in the West are always getting ready to live."
—Chinese Proverb

james, these two quotes are wonderful. The sky of Awareness is boundless, the full bright moon is wisdom, nothing is missing. And we have the ability to touch this freedom, experience it right here, right now. It is right before our eyes, in fact, it is within us! Knowing this is living in this moment, fully.
Love to you,
