resting on the shore of ease

daily meditation #15 from thich nhat hanh's book "present moment wonderful moment:"

"entering the meditation room,
i see my true mind.
i vow that once i sit down,
all disturbances will stop."

in the vietnamese translation of this verse, disturbance (tram luan) means "sinking into and rolling in the ocean of forgetfulness, worries, and afflictions." may all beings have time and a quiet place to just sit for a while and rest in the experience of wakefulness, ease and freedom from suffering.
