Constancy.

What a morning with watering green plants!
This time I won’t make mistakes by growing tomatoes. πŸ˜‰
I bought a basil pot from a supermarket and took it apart at home. Now they are getting bigger and bushy.πŸ€—
I thought, squirrels might have digged some hazelnuts in my garden, but now I ask myself, if they are sunflowers 🌻?! πŸ€”
Who does remember here, that I would try to build own compost? It looks though not bad, huh??😍
Got some sprouting ideas via Facebook πŸ˜‰ broccoli, kresse, rucola, radish! Yummy πŸ˜‹
Sourdough bread with mugwort powder, it smells so nice by baking 🀀 – woody bitter note πŸ‘Œ
Many addictions like alcohol, sweeties, salty chips, fried foods, I can’t digest any more (fortunately!), but coffee remained. 😌
While waiting for the training…

The usual translation of the Japanese word nin is “patience”, but “constancy” is a better word. You must force yourself to be patient, but in constancy there is no particular effort involved – there’s only the unchanging ability to accept things as they are. For people who have no idea of emptiness, this ability may appear to be patience, but patience can actually be nonacceptance. People who know, even if only intuitively, the state of emptiness always have open the possibility of accepting things as they are. They can appreciate everything. In everything they do, even though it may be very difficult, they will always be able to dissolve their problems by constancy.

Zen mind, beginner’s mind – Shunryu Suzuki

1 thought on “Constancy.”

  1. When we live from a place of emptiness, there is a natural effortlessness

    Similar to water finding the lowest level to reach an equilibrium with gravity. There is a constancy in how it does this
