It’s a clear and cool morning with a wonderful sunrise dawning. I have sounded the temple bell three times and performed the simple rites — the greeting of the Sun, the burning of the incense, the candle offering, the clearing of the space and the contemplation.
There is baggage behind me and there are problems before me, obstacles to overcome in the hours and days ahead, things to do, endure, and achieve. But this morning I have allowed my body to feel every breath of the breeze, allowed my spirit to hum a tune in synch with the universal rhythm, allowed myself to merely be.
I go forward now to face my day with a heart, mind, and body filled with easy bliss.
