In a dream

The Gate of Liberation is always open. Dogen

Liberation from what? Liberation from walking around in a dream, like a zombie looking for contentment outside your immediate and precious life. If only you could recognize and receive what was actually here in front of you, rather than what you wish were here instead.

Why is that so hard? I don’t know, but I do know that I certainly have a tendency to want to adjust my environment to myself, not the other way round. Instead is it possible for us to constantly give thanks for whatever our life gives us? This is how to practice being truly content with what we have – even when that seems impossible
