Sensei Post in A Zen Thing, Quotes

Let us try to recognize the precious nature of each day.
— The 14th Dalai Lama

This is one of my favorite quotes at the moment (no pun intended). To often we get caught up in the turmoil of life thinking of the past or the future. Most people miss the now completely because of a fixation on the past and/or future. Their apprication of the now is reserved for a sunset that catches their attention or some similar focus grabbing event. If we work at it our lives can be filled with special sunsets that keep us focused on the now, the present. Like anything in life worth attaining it takes work to train yourself to live in the moment. So train hard and perhaps you will notice the beauty of the dew on the morning grass instead of thinking about what went wrong yesterday.
