By it’s very definition, Zen is a total state of focus
Zen incorporates the togetherness of body and mind. Maybe a little “out there” for some people, but I challenge you to look at a beautiful sunrise and not feel your body and mind come together.
The moment this photo was snapped I felt that whatever (bad stuff) had happened the day or week or month or year(s) before could be washed away.
With the new tide, the beach is reborn and gets another chance to be a beach.
A new possibility.
New feet will sink in it’s sand, new birds will scurry at the shoreline, new children will collect the shells that gather. Can you tell the beach is my happy place?
“It’s a new dawn. It’s a new day. It’s a new life, for me…and I’m feeling good.”
This is the anthem for today.
Anthony Newley and Leslie Briscusse wrote the song lyrics to the song It’s A New Dawn for the musical The Roar of the Greasepaint – The Smell of the Crowd.
Nina Simone recorded the song for her 1965 album I Put a Spell on You and it became a standard. It’s been recorded by many artists. Listen to her version. My apologies to Michael Bublé @MichaelBublé, my favorite contemporary version.
Please forward this graphic to your friends who need a prayer, a note of encouragement, a boost or a KICK IN THE PANTS today.
It’s a new dawn, my friends. And I’m feeling good.
How are you feeling today?
