we exist like a lotus, / At home in the muddy water. / Thus we bow to life as
it is.

verse is an important reminder, says Ezra Bayda, of what the spiritual life is
truly about: the willingness to open ourselves to whatever life presents—no
matter how messy or complicated. And through that willingness to be open, we
can discover wisdom, compassion, and the genuine life we all want. In
Home in the Muddy Water
Bayda applies this simple Zen teaching to a range of everyday
concerns—including relationships, trust, sexuality, and money—showing that
everything we need to practice is right here before us, and that peace and
fulfillment is available to everyone, right here, right now, no matter what
their circumstances.
