Sitting on the Roof of a Car Watching the Sunset w/ Coffee

Coffee at sunset on the roof of a car – I love this Instagram photo for a number of reasons. My goal in life recently has been to be more “present,” which is the most important concept of Zen Buddhism.

I feel like this photo captures “the present moment” perfectly. Even the fact that she is sitting on the roof of a car adds to the idea of deliberately choosing to being “still,” even on a machine designed for movement.

Plus, check out that retro glass coffee maker that looks like an old Bunsen burner; yet another deliberate choice to honor the “process” or journey instead of rushing to the destination.
