Dying Man’s Daily Journal – living

Had a nap but am still feeling worn out, maybe just lazy. Found this quote by Thich Nhat Hanh. It seems to just say so much.

Do we need to make a special effort to enjoy the beauty of the sky?

Do we have to practice to be able to enjoy it, No, we just enjoy it.

Each second, each minute in our lives can be like this.

Where ever we are, any time, we have the capacity to enjoy the sunshine and each other, even the sensation of our own breathing

We don’t need to go to China to enjoy the blue sky.

We don’t have to travel into the future to enjoy our own breathing.

We can be in touch with those things right now.
