Get Busy Living

Actress Elsie Ferguson by Baron de Meyer, c.1921.
The evening chant at the end of the last sitting in a Zen temple: Let me respectfully remind you, life and death are of supreme importance. Time swiftly passes by and opportunity is lost. Each of us should strive to awaken. Awaken. Take heed. Do not squander your life.

If we are awake we are in the moment and fully alive. It is a good reminder. Thank you.
