To truly practice Zen therefore means not leaving lights burning when they are not needed, not allowing water to run unnecessarily from the faucet, not loading up your plate and leaving food uneaten.

Philip Kapleau in 365 Zen by Jean Smith


To Practice This Thought:
Find ways to be respectful of the things you use and encounter, bearing in mind that water, food, light, and other resources are gifts.
