Our One Precious Life

There is no where else than here.
The only gate is now.
The only doorway is your own body and mind.
There’s nowhere to go…there’s nothing else to be.
There’s no destination.

It’s not something to aim for in the afterlife.
It’s simply the quality of this moment.
Just this…this room where (you) are.
Pay attention to that…
Pay attention.”

— Poets Jane Hirshfeld & W.S. Merwin
