and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

An angry person is a dangerous person,
whether that person crosses our path
or whether the angry person is ourself.

we tend to exhibit anger as well as fear.
We look for someone to blame for the dangerous situation,
and direct our anger toward them.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

should have done better.
Most of all we are angry at ourselves -
even though we did our best -
and we are afraid.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Just one quality of the Buddha has to be remembered.
He consists only of one quality: witnessing.
This small word witnessing contains the whole of spirituality.

you start becoming drunk with the divine.
That is what is called ecstasy.

Walking is Zen, sitting is Zen.
Then what will be the quality?
Watchfully alert, joyously unmotivated,

not sitting for anything in particular,
just enjoying how beautiful
just sitting doing nothing is,
how relaxing, how restful.

Zen says that if you drop knowledge -
and within knowledge everything is included;
your name, your identity, everything,

This will be a crucifixion of the persona, the personality,
and there will be a resurrection of your innocence.
You will become a child again, reborn.

I value you and honor and take the time,
right this moment to pause long enough to truly notice you."
