Blooming

"The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. With each step, the wind blows. With each step, a flower blooms." ~Thich Nhat Hahn

Apparently because I just posted some lines by Bankei, I can see for the first time a correspondence between TNH's "this path" and Bankei's "Unborn."

Nice!

That flower is the essence of those words.

Tom, interesting connection! I had thought of this a walking meditation and the "path" being literal.

I have tended to think of TNH's path as a 'prescription' for one to practice. But it occurred to me that it could also be taken as a 'description' of What IS.

Diane AZ said...

Tom, TNH's path as a 'description' of What IS, very nice, thank you for your input!
