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.

Moment after moment, each sitting is the only sitting.”More quotes…
