No detail too small; none too insignificant. As Dogen said: “Enlightenment is intimacy with all things.” We are going through this life only once. The skill is to immerse oneself in the nuances of the world without allowing them to enslave you. From my deathbed I will have tears in my eyes, not because I am leaving this world, but because I have been so much a part of it. Rain down the windows. Birds bickering over scraps. The silhouette of a tree against the backdrop of a sunset. Stand where you are and see.
