Enough is a Feast

I have been sitting with this Buddhist proverb, the way a practitioner sits with the dharma. Enough is a feast.

We are taught in my culture to want more. I remember in the heyday of MTV the Billy Idol mantra, “Too much is never enough.” That is the value system that surrounded me. That surrounds me.

My meditation practice is simply counting my breath, a focal point for my wandering mind. And in the moment, my breath – the inhale and exhale, the filling and emptying of my lungs – is all my body needs, desperately needs. My breath is enough. 

And that is a feast.
