Nice one, Joel, thanks.

This one reminds me to be grateful for all the things I take for granted. For instance, at the grocery store. I can get things from the other side of the planet with ease. I can have 6 different kinds of potatoes if I want. I can get my food already prepared for me. I am a very lucky person, and am grateful for these everyday miracles.

It's not good to take things for granted as the last few months have pointed out to me.Also we shouldn't take eachother for granted ,even strangers.
I've experienced remarks about being a skinhead,stares,people purposefully avoiding looking at me,and people going out of their way to be too nice to me,none of it feels very good.
You never know where someone has been or what they are going through just by looking at them. There are miracles in all of us,let's take care of eachother.
I hope this had something to do with the topic.

To be enlightened is to be intimate with all things.

I could interprete that in a few ways. It is said that 'enlightenment' is all or nothing. With that in mind, I don't think I would aspire for that level of 'intimacy' with the entire world. Just too 'raw'.

Jump into salvation while you are alive. What you call “salvation” belongs to the time before death.

A clearly enlightened person falls in the well. How is this so?

The clearly enlightened person needs to keep his enlightened eyes off the clouds and on the path of enlightenment, otherwise he falls in the well of contentment and drowns in the water of satisfaction.
