appreciating the moment…

Please take a moment to appreciate this natural world, right here and now. Take this moment to stop your distracted thinking, sit still, and appreciate the birds, the breeze, the play of sun and shadow, the air around you—even the human sounds.

~

Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara

stopping. paying attention. appreciating all that is passing, arising and then falling away.

these are such simple practices, but also deeply profound. at their heart, they are simply just being with life as it is at this moment. what could be more beneficial, more stable, more opening than that?
