Nature delivers the greatest Zen masters in learning how to live in the now.
A mole sleeps standing up with its head between its paws.
That same paws he uses to dig deep tunnels and holes in the ground. He then pushes the dirt walking backwards from deep underground, creating molehills.
With most mammals, the hair is placed in a particular direction, usually backwards, but the mole can turn the fixation of its hair in the skin. As a result, moving forward is just as easy as moving backward.
Move smooth, leave the past behind.
Embrace the gift of today, that’s why it’s called present.
The future, is unwrapping the present.
