Fast Forward to September

Saying Yes to Life (Even the Hard Parts)

May we exist like a lotus,
At home in the muddy water.
Thus we bow to life as it is.
- Zen verse

Thomas Moore has contributed to Saying Yes to Life (Even the Hard Parts) by Ezra Bayda with Josk Bartok, published by Wisdom Books. These reflections address "the importance of drawing meaning from life's paradoxes — opening to the unwanted, recognizing the happiness in difficulty, and living for now rather than later." The book will be available early autumn 2005.
Ezra Bayda studied with Charlotte Joko Beck, founder of the Ordinary Mind Zen School and he now teaches at the Zen Center of San Diego. In 2003 Bayda wrote At Home in the Muddy Water.
