Right here, right now

What 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.
