In my research to provide you with the best resources for Zen Teaching, I came across the following quotation which was shared by Mrs. Mindfulness*:

“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.”
                                                          –Frederick Buechner

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
