'Life always gives us

Exactly the teacher we need

at every moment

This includes every mosquito,

Every misfortune,

Every red light,

Every traffic jam,

Every obnoxious supervisor (or employee),

Every ilness, every loss,

Every moment of joy or depression,

Every addiction,

Every piece of garbage,

Every breath.

Every moment is the guru.
