“Awakening”  |  Anthony Satori

“That is the real spiritual awakening, when something emerges from within you that is deeper than who you thought you were.  So, the person is still there, but one could almost say that something more powerful shines through the person.”

— Eckhart Tolle

“Everness”  |  Anthony Satori

Strive to find happiness, gratitude, and inspiration in whatever good you may have in your life, right here, right now.  This is the Everness of Zen.

[a poem]

There is no need to hurry to get there,

because there is only more here waiting there.

There is always more beauty in life when you love,

because even all becomes more when it’s shared.

There is no need to look too far forward or back,

because only now holds the essence of everness.

Find pleasure and calm in your presence of mind,

and your life won’t get lost into neverness.

“Walden House II (Interior)”  |  Anthony Satori

“All the attractions of a house were concentrated in one room; it was kitchen, chamber, parlor, and keeping-room; and whatever satisfaction [one may] derive from living in a house, I enjoyed it all.”

“Walden House III”  |  Anthony Satori

“The snow had already covered the ground… and surrounded me suddenly with the scenery of winter.  I withdrew yet farther into my shell, and endeavored to keep a bright fire both within my house and within my breast.”

— Henry David Thoreau  (Walden: Life in the Woods, 1854)

“How to Fly”  |  Anthony Satori

“When you get to the end of all the light you know and it’s time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.”

— Edward Teller

“Golden”  |  Anthony Satori

“There was something undifferentiated and yet complete, which existed before Heaven and Earth.  Soundless and formless, it depends on nothing and does not change.  It may be considered the mother of the universe.  I do not know its name;  I call it Tao.”

— Lao Tzu
