Apt quotes

I attended a reading at Mrs. Dalloway's for Fire Monks. David Zimmerman, one of the five monks who turned back on the road to Tassajara and helped save the place from burning in 2008, was there and what he said found me scrabbling for a pen. Without going into too much detail, these were things I needed to hear this week.

Whatever happens is right in every moment.

Fear is actually an idea of the future.

There's some point we all face ... this fundamental moment of the urgency of life.

Every moment is a story.

We are never the character we think we are. awe are never the story we think we are.

We don't need shelter. We can meet this moment.
