In Each Moment

Waking up this morning, I smile.
Twenty-four brand new hours are
before me. I vow to live fully in
each moment and to look at all
beings with eyes of compassion.

  1. While driving ‘out’ today (sunny skies) I was behind a bus which kept stopping in dangerous curves to pick up passengers. Not safe to pass, I continued to follow as it raced forward, braked, raced forward – each time bellowing out toxic fumes from the muffler. Almost irritated, I remembered Ram Daas’s “God in drag” quote and then I smiled. “Yes,” I thought, “God is having a marvelous time, living through each one of us – even the bus driver!”

    Seeing through Eyes of Compassion is another great reminder. Thank you, Eddie!

  2. Thich Nhat Hanh lies in a villa in the grounds of the 19th century Tu Hieu Pagoda, awaiting liberation from the cyclical nature of existence. The 92 years old monk is refusing medication prescribed after a stroke in 2014. The Zen master is evidently playing the long game—the longest game of all, in fact, which is eternity.

      • His followers seem to feel that it works the other way around. They gather around his deathbed in the hope of gaining some reflection of his wisdom before his departure. Thich Nhat Hanh himself has little illusions; his heritage will be exploited by the Vietnamese regime. But again; he plays the game longer and on a more prolonged time-frame.
