#SitDownRiseUp

there is a phrase/hashtag used by some Engaged Buddhists that i really like. it is #SitDownRiseUp. i like the harmony/balance of it.

our seated, formal meditation where we train with our mind and heart, is preparation for stepping into the world to bring benefit and reduce suffering.

and what we are training to do on our cushion, at least partly, is to get up and relate to the world with the same mindful and open-hearted energy, so that we are a benefit to others.
