Zen Spot #86 — Mindfulness, meditation and a bell that never stops ringing December 8, 2017 23:06


A bell may hang in a steeple, or in a temple, or in a delicatessen and, unless it leans against a stationary object, it never stops vibrating. The sound may be imperceptible but, so long as there is vibration, there are waves bouncing. 

Human hands, too, might absorb the ring but, once removed, the human pulse will have been enough to leave behind an inaudible ring.
