Today's Daily Dharma: Gently Bowing
the one hand, bowing is a simple gesture—a human offering—where we
extend heartfelt respect toward another. Standing up straight, looking
directly at our world, fully appreciating the profound invitation, we
acknowledge the remarkable timelessness of it all and we say hello by
gently bowing. We actually bow by gently lowering our head in
appreciation. This gentleness has no agenda other than to softly open,
fully awake to what is fully awake, completely available and exposed.
