no mud, no lotus (summer zen #9 - the beginning)
it was on July 15 that i started this summer zen blog series, with the idea "to revisit places i've been, and to go on a summer stroll through the web. all this, with a touch of zen. and with open rhythm. a chain of moments, some to visit once, some to return to."
now i wanted to add the next entry, and realized this summer series probably began a month earlier, with a blog entry in June that included a challenge quote and a video link with note:
another perspective on challenge:
"The Obstable is the Path
When you encounter a blockage -- a wall in your plans -- embrace it, adore it and realize that you put it there. Remember -- if it happens to you, it happens through you."
and a beautiful, challenging video: "No Mud, No Lotus" by Tara Brach (the video, i didn't look for. it just popped up in the sidebar as i watched something else, and was perfect for today)
