soon i'll be ready

We don’t teach meditation to the young monks. They are not ready for it until they stop slamming doors. 

Thich Nhat Hanh 
to Thomas Merton in 1966 

I love this! 

I've always thought of meditation as a way to get myself to stop slamming doors. Perhaps I have it backwards.

I'm much better than I used to be at holding onto myself. I do still have my moments, as those who know me can attest. 

Note to self: Daily practice = stop slamming doors.
