Weekend Zen, September 23-24

If people sat outside and 
looked at the stars each night,
I bet they'd live differently. 

When you look into infinity, 
you realize there are more important 
things than what people do all day.

~ Bill Watterson

Daily Zen - Thursday, September 21

Intrinsically, we are perfect in being as we are.
We are enlightened. But until we really 
understand this, we will do deluded things.

Do not worry about what "others" may do to you.
Strive only to know yourself completely. 
Then, you can move in this world like the wind.
Who can command the wind?

Your assumptions are 
your windows on the world. 
Scrub them off every once in a while, 
or the light won't come in.

Just don't give up trying to do 
what you really want to do. 
Where there's love and inspiration,
I don't think you can go wrong.

Daily Zen - Thursday, September 7

You invite things to happen.
You open the door. You inhale.
And if you inhale the chaos, 
you give the chaos, 
the chaos gives back.

~ Dave Eggers

Daily Zen - Monday, September 4

Start now. Start where you are. Start with fear. 
Start with pain. Start with doubt. Start with hands
shaking. Start with voice trembling, but start.
Start and don't stop. Start where you are, 
with just what you have. Just start.

~ Ijeoma Umebinyuo

Weekend Zen, September 2-3

Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to 
someone's face? Did I say words of healing? 
Did I let go of my anger and resentment? 
Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions.

I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now 
will bear fruits, here in this world and the life to come.

~ Henri Nouwen
