On Monday, I got up before 6AM and drove to Dublin again to sit with Soto Zen folks, this time at 7.15 in the morning. The sun was raising slowly on the wall in front of me. We did a bit of walking meditation. I noticed people rushing about outside a large window of the Georgian building we were in. Every single person slouching over their smartphones. I felt awe for my fellow human beings for being able to navigate through the Dublin’s morning rush hour practically blindfolded and not ending themselves accidentally under a bus.
