Every Moment is the Guru
“Life always gives us exactly the teacher we need at every moment. This includes every mosquito, every misfortune, every red light, every traffic jam, every obnoxious supervisor (or employee), every illness, every loss, every moment of joy or depression, every addiction, every piece of garbage, every breath. Every moment is the guru.” Charlotte Joko Beck
Who wants to believe this? The obstacles are the path.
I am going to keep reminding myself of this tomorrow as I shovel snow from winter storm Ion. And while I look for jobs for my friend so she can leave me and Michigan behind.
The ultimate guru is the present. We don’t need to look for it; we can’t even escape it.
