Do you know what I find a true miracle? The fact that the little dwarf, my son, over here:
in about 16 years turns into that:
This is the same being, the same body, the same entity. I mean, this is truly amazing, how these forces of nature work, all by themselves. Incredible. Growth and all of these processes just happen.
Also ageing. It just keeps happening. I do not see this part as a such a beautiful miracle.
Well, tomorrow I am of for a three-day Zen sesshin. Basically three days of sitting in silence, attempting to be present here and now. And nothing else. And I love that immensely.
Of course I could not resist and I invited my son to come with me and enjoy the inner silence. What do you think the answer was?
