Rest Like a Tree

Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure
and sorrow come and go like the wind.
To be happy, rest like a great tree
in the midst of them all.

~Buddha’s Little Instruction Book~

This was the introduction to today’s entry in “THE BOOK OF AWAKENING” by Mark Nepo.  We can use the trees around us as a reminder to let go and be happy.

  1. Here is just one more synchronicity….last night before going upstairs I saw your post, just the first quote and said to myself, I would read and comment tomorrow. Then up to bed I went with my Mark Nepo book to read that day’s quote to Bob, and you know the rest…It’s uncanny! You might as well live in this house in Washington!
