Treat every moment as your last

I used to meditate in what I now call a “lazy” way, more of a savasana “withdraw from the senses” style. These days my meditation is more active and alert, and I like this quote by Shunryu Suzuki: “Treat every moment as your last. It is not preparation for something else.” (Last spring (2014), when I thought I might die as I laid in a bed in a hotel room, my meditation was extremely intense, just like this quote requests of us.)

I don’t know the original source of this image, but this quote is from the book, Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind
