Every moment

Recognizing and welcoming what is here in front of us, instead of always waiting for things to be “better” than the situation we are actually in:

The mind and external conditions are just as they are (“such”).

The gate of liberation is open.

Dogen, 1200-1253, founder of the Soto branch of Zen Buddhism, Commentary on the Precepts
