"If I were called upon to state in a few words the essence of everything I was trying to say, it would be something like this: Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery that it is.
In the boredom and pain of it no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace."
What a great reminder that every moment is precious, that mindfulness is a gift we give ourselves, and that we must use our senses to appreciate the grace and beauty of life--whether we are in the sunshine or the storm.
This was a truly inspirational quotation for me.
And I hope for you as well. TZT
