An incredible book offering the sweet wisdom of being alive in each moment. Carrying our innate spirituality and being into the world in each act. We sit and meditate because we rise and go into the world. Nonacademic yet it teaches. Highly recommended.

“Become the person of no rank. Become the noble soul, and live in this awakened way, not imitating anyone. Whatever the circumstances your life asks of you, respond to them in your own individual Zen-spirited way. Don't waste any time trying to be someone else...We are not here to have someone else's experience. We are here to have our own vivid experience. So please don't cling to yesterday, to what happened, to what didn't happen. And do not judge today by yesterday. Let us just live today to the fullest! Moment after moment, each sitting is the only sitting.” 5 likes
