Monk Meditating

 

Not a day goes by when I don’t think about this monk I came upon and the significance of his rigorous practice.

Not a day goes by when I don’t think about what he must have been thinking, or trying not to think.

Not a day goes by when I don’t recognize the importance of what he modeled for me.

Not a day goes by when the benefits of bumping into him don’t impact my life.

The robe doesn’t matter, the location doesn’t matter, the wall doesn’t matter.

Devotion. Continuous rigorous practice. Inner observation. Cultivation. Meditation.  It’s everything.  

Three steps, one bow.
