“Tree in a Field of Yellow Flowers”  |  Anthony Satori

“The temple bell stops, but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.”

— Matsuo Basho

Our connection with God does not have to begin and end at the temple door.  If we pay attention, watch closely, and listen carefully, we will find it vibrating throughout everything around us.BlogImage-footd2

“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.

“My dwelling was small, and I could hardly entertain an echo in it; but it seemed larger for being a single apartment and remote from neighbors.”

“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)
