One who is trapped in a cave (= body) and covered by many things (= desires) is sunk in folly. Those who are just like that are far away from the workings of the body, words and mind, which are covered with desires. For in the world, all desires are not easy to get rid of.

One day the Buddha saw a man preparing to make an animal sacrifice. On being asked why he was going to kill innocent animals, the man replied that it was because it would please the gods. The Buddha then offered Himself as the sacrifice, saying that if the life of an animal would please the gods then the life of a human being, more valuable, should please the gods even more. Needless to say, the man was so moved by the Buddha’s practical gesture that he gave up the animal sacrifice and accepted the Buddha’s Teaching.

And here is another poem about living in the present.
I’m currently reading a lot about Buddhism and this seems to be one of the most important lessons of it, to give yourself fully to the present, until there is no “you”. Until there is just the now.
This might be the greatest act of love. To completely renounce our past, our future, and our cravings. To be simply at peace with this moment.
It’s easier said than done. But we can get better with training. So why not start right now?

While we may not recognize it at the time of a traumatic event, life-changing suffering has a way of being an opening to a greater understanding of life. The “mud” and mess of our most painful experiences can become the fertile ground for the blossoming of our understanding and self-compassion.

Shunmyo Masuno, Zen Priest / Garden Designer
“A moment we enjoy today will never return again. As waves beat against a shore, so do we inexorably grow older. Growing old is simply proof that you are living a natural life. Human live according to the dictates of nature. Change is a natural part of this.
Right now we have a chance to truly appreciate the joy of our life until now. But you can’t cling to the past. That will only lead to pain and struggle. Accept change and absorb whatever that is good to shape a new era.
We can’t continue to selfishly exploit the natural world. We cause forest fire, extreme weather and climate change. This is a wake up call. We must build a world in which we can live in harmony with nature. We need spaces that allow our spirits to commune with nature but such spaces are sadly rare in cities today. Spaces to allow people to stop, relax and just breathe.”

An important point is to meet yourself with kindness, be present with your human self, just like you would be patient and kind with a small child you care about. Criticizing yourself simply adds to the difficulty.

“Everything you see, everything you hear can be good medicine for person who self-reflect. Yet for the person who constantly looks for faults within others, everything they see and everything they hear becomes poison.”

”自分を省みる人にとっては、見るもの聞くものすべてが良薬になる。しかし、常に他人の欠点を探している人にとっては、見るもの聞くものすべてが毒となる。”
