monday moment of zen


there are thousands upon thousands of students
who have practiced meditation and obtained its fruits.
do not doubt its possibilities because of the simplicity of the method.
if you can not find the truth right where you are,
where else do you expect to find it?

...ah yes - and yet, so easy to want to PURSUE it instead of LIVE it.

So perfectly peaceful, as always. :)

...in all the craziness i create? ha, must smile gently because i know that we build upon what we have, and yet we can sit simply with all of it and be calm, still pillars. i love that gift. thank you for encouraging that soft, gentle side. the meditative, contemplative path.

Beautiful quote. Somehow, the quotes you choose always seem to speak to me in exactly the way I need at the time. I've been really wanting to start a more regular meditation practice. Thank you for the motivation! xo
