Dreaming of butterflies

The great Taoist master Chuang Tzu once dreamed he was a butterfly fluttering here and there. He had no awareness of his individuality as a person. Suddenly, he awoke and found himself lying there. He thought to himself, “Was I before a man who dreamed about being a butterfly? Or am I now a butterfly who dreams about being a man?”

A meditation for today

May all beings everywhere, with whom we are inseparably interconnected, be fulfilled, awakened, and free. May there be peace in this world and throughout the entire universe, and may we all together complete the spiritual journey.
