Zen is all about being in the now. If I am eating, walking, cooking, washing dishes, having an anger moment…fully enjoy each one of those things and be in the moment. When I am a bit annoyed and feeling not so groovy, I analyze my thoughts and feelings at that moment and then puff…there goes the annoyance, because I realize nothing is really worth disturbing my inner beautiful peace. It has taken me 63 3/4 years to realize that.
Going back to this beautiful picture I snapped this morning during my holy daily walk. I was really lucky to capture this beautiful scene. The sun rising on my right and the moon saying “good day” on my left. If I would have been preoccupied with my petty little thoughts about moi, I would have missed Miss Moon trying to show me the beauty of our breathtaking nature.
Sharing is also being in the now and in the moment. I feel good becoming an “in-the-moment person.”
