Naked Mind & Laundry


Early Saturday morning. A cup of hot Chai tea. Cool summer wind. Grey sky. Softly swaying wildflowers. And a lonely bird. I soak in everything. A holistic engagement with life. No need for logic. No interrogation. No arrogance. Only humility. Yielding. Innocence. It is all about thereness and suchness. About connectedness and interrelationship. About the One True Source that unfolds every moment. That is beyond doubt. About having a naked mind. About having a full heart. About depth. And a deep surrender of the heart to the mystery of the moment. And then … doing the laundry in the evening.

    Exquisite words – the perfection of ordinariness.

    Your title adds a new dimension to what you share here Virgilio … I love it. It would make an arresting title for a book…even a movie. I’d have to see what it was about. “Naked Mind & Laundry”
