Buddhist Platitudes

Don't know why, but Buddhist platitudes resonate with me these days. Here's one from Tricycle Magazine's Daily Dharma:

Meet Life Where It Is

You can face anything properly, elegantly, when you meet life where it is, in the moment. When conditions are fresh and joyous, we can delight in that changing image. When the karma and goodness sustaining life is exhausted, we can look death right in its face. We live life wisely and compassionately in the beginning, middle, and end.

–Ajahn Sumano Bhikkhu, from Meeting the Monkey Halfway (Weiser)
