Zen Lesson

Poet Jane Hirshfield describes the essence of Zen philosophy:

Everything changes.

Everything is connected.

Pay attention.

“Pay attention.” Easy to say. Might take a lifetime to master.

I do find that when I give my loving attention to my kids, my work, the beauty around me, my life is rich beyond measure.
