The Daily Practice

We can drift through life. We can practice life.

It’s a daily thing. I’m no longer young. I don’t have a full-time job answerable to a boss or corporation. But I have daily practice. Meditate, exercise, eat a nutritious breakfast, write, read (maybe practice guitar on a good day).

As the itinerant Chinese Buddhist Layman Pang said:

My daily activities are not unusual,

I’m just naturally in harmony with them.

Grasping nothing, discarding nothing…

Supernatural power and marvelous activity

Drawing water and carrying firewood.

Layman Pang, 740-808

Live in harmony with nature, with others, especially with yourself.
