“Life and death are of supreme importance. Time swiftly passes by and opportunity is lost. Each of us should strive to awaken. Awaken! Take heed, do not squander your life.” ― Dōgen
This is my favourite Dogen quote.
In fact, I should paste it liberally around my office and where I work not just as an aide memoir but to impress on me the need not to get lost in (my) thinking, which always (and for the rest of us, right?) takes us out of the now.
I mean, come on, if you've not worked out that the now is all you've got and will ever have then...!
What more can I say?
Much love, Ju.
