September Contemplation

"Joy is sometimes of most use when things go wrong. We easily get caught in blame and drama, but the loss of familiar expectations can strip away our complacency. Coming home to find he had been robbed of all his possessions, the Japanese poet, monk, and vagabond Ryokan looked out of his empty hut at the night sky: ‘Poor fellow. How I wish I could have offered him this beautiful moon.’

We lose what we love, inevitably. Sunshine turns to rain. Life is no respecter of our preferences. Yet here we are. Alive. Conscious. Breathing. Is it possible that you are floating, constantly, and most especially right now in an ocean of blessings? Even if sometimes it feels like you are drowning?"
