Thought for today

The Buddha was once asked, 'What makes a person holy?' He replied, 'Every hour is divided into a certain number of seconds and every second into a certain number of fractions. Anyone who is able to be totally present in each fraction of a second is holy.' There is nothing common about common life - it takes an awakened sense to see what is mysterious in each ordinary moment, to ponder in our hearts, to really see people and things - not our preconceptions of them.
