The Wisdom of Humble Things

Yūgen is a word from Japanese which refers to a sense that Nature

possesses a mysterious beauty and perfection in every part. When

the mind is in a state of openness, we can experience this feeling in the

presence of the simplest or most ordinary things... pebbles glowing in the

sun, ripples on water, sunlight coming through trees. The sound of a stream,

the smell of wet earth have much to teach us, if we will listen.
