“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.
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.

— Ludwig van Beethoven
“Inner Strength” | Anthony Satori
“You have power over your mind — outside events do not. Realize this, and you will find strength.”

“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

“Exuberance” | Anthony Satori
Today I sang, I saw beauty, I spoke poetry, I felt joy.
I held wonder and sunlight in my open hands, until they overflowed.
And then I set out in search of you, to share the treasures I’d found.
