Just to Be

"Just to be alive is enough."

- Shunryu Suzuki -

Awhile back I found myself writing the following on a piece of paper--

"It is only in the systematic unpacking of ourselves that we find the freedom to simply be."

I don't know if it is true for everyone. But it seems to be true for me. Those moments of clarity that come from time to time seem to be about less rather than more.

The unpacked bag is empty. The more we remove, the more we can see the nothing that is left. The open space of being. In this space is freedom.
