Zenkei Blanche Hartman

‘If we’re open to embracing the surprises as they arise, then there will be inconceivable joy. If we fuss and fume and say, “This isn’t what I expected,” then there will be inconceivable misery. Just to welcome your life as it arrives moment after moment, to meet it as fully as you can, being as open to it as you can, being as ready for whatever arises as you can, and meeting it whole-heartedly, this is renunciation – this is leaving behind all your preferences, all of your ideas and notions. Just meeting life as it is.’ (Seeds for a Boundless Life)
