Simple Joy | May 3, 2015
is it that opens the gate to joy in our ordinary, day-to-day lives?
I’ve been calling it awakeness and awareness: the simple practice of
sitting quietly, breathing in and out, dropping our obsessive thoughts
and resistance to the freshness of the moment that is exactly here. It
is amazing, our resistance to tapping into the joy that is like the blue
sky surrounding this earth.
