Zen Master Yun Men Wen Yan (雲門文偃, 864-949 AD) said: “Everyday is a good day! (日日是好日)”Why is this so? Every little thing, every person we encounter in daily life is a invaluable encounter. Every moment is unique; every breath, every step on earth is precious. Thus, the love for life is not about clinging, but about appreciation. Everyday Is a Good Day!
