    Here. Now.

    I awaken from a deep sleep.

    Where am I?

    Slowly I realize where I am.

    I am in my bed. I am in my bedroom. I am in my house.

    I feel fear. I feel anxiety. I feel afraid.

    I begin my morning. I make my oatmeal. I pour my juice.

    Meal chant. Breathe. Eat oatmeal. Drink juice.

    My house is so messy! How can I tackle so many chores?

    I feel stresesd. I feel overwhelmed. I feel disatisfied.

    Sitting. Not trying to let go. Going. Gone.

    Fold laundry. Wash dishes. Watch Sesame Street (with kids).

    Here. Now.

    No I. No my.

    Here. Now.

            Fear and anxiety flourish in dark spaces- exposed to light they evaporate
            like so many shimmering illusions

            Thank you for your courage Dosho. You inspire us.

                            Thank you,
                            Always here, always now.
                            Everything here, everything now.
                            No thing, no here, no now.

                            Gassho,

                            In a spring outside time, flowers bloom on a withered tree;
                            you ride a jade elephant backwards, chasing the winged dragon-deer;
                            now as you hide far beyond innumerable peaks--
                            the white moon, a cool breeze, the dawn of a fortunate day
