Everything revealed in each moment

“Enlightenment is like the moon reflected in a dewdrop on a blade of grass. The moon does not get wet, nor is the drop of water broken.

And the whole moon and the entire sky are reflected in even one drop of water”.  Dogen, 

In truth, the smallest stem of a damaged heart, like a single blade of grass, holds the essence of everything alive.

Enlightenment is the kiss of anything – moon, storm, or kindness – that opens us to that essence.

Mark Nepo, The Book of Awakening
