|A Cottage by the Sea||
As you walk and eat and travel, be where you are. Otherwise you will miss most of your life.
Everything is extraordinary clear. I see the whole landscape before me, I see my hands, my feet, my toes and I smell the rich river mud, I feel a sense of tremendous strangeness and wonder at being alive. Wonder of wonders.
Like a mother who protects her child, her only child, with her own life, one should cultivate a heart of unlimited love and compassion towards all living beings.
