Via Daily Dharma / October 18, 2016: Swimming Practice

We are not separate from our practice, and so no matter what, our practice is present. An ocean swimmer is loose and flows with the current and moves through the tide. When tossed upside-down in the surf, unable to discern which way is up and which is down, the natural swimmer just lets go, breathing out, and follows the bubbles to the surface.

—Sensei Pat Enkyo O’Hara, "Like a Dragon in Water"
