Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes and the grass grows by itself

Really enjoyed seeing this Zen proverb today on Swirly Girl's blog. If you're not familiar with Christine Mason Miller, I highly recommend checking her out.

This paragraph of her writing really spoke to me:

"As I work to create a life that is meaningful, I do so within the context of it being meaningful all on its own, for its own mysterious reasons that I will likely never have a full understanding of. And in that sense, I can approach my life as something that has less to do with pushing, pulling, grasping and forcing and more to do with simply doing my best, drinking up each day, breathing deeply and letting the joy seep through my bones."

Yes! You can read the rest here.
