Even if you possess all the luxuries wealth can buy, you cannot be happy and excited about your life if you are not peaceful from the inside. How can you learn to cultivate inner peace and a sense of fulfillment while the world we live in is as a fast-paced and stressful one where because we have so many responsibilities to attend and so much work to do, it often becomes nearly impossible to be peaceful and happy?

You can certainly be peaceful and fulfilled even as you fulfill your responsibilities and enjoy your life. How can you do that? Well, the answer is simple: Zen Zen is a branch of Buddhism that focuses mainly on meditation and teaches you ways to infuse peace and calm into your routine life.

Living Zen Remindfully by (dba Shopping)

This is a book for readers who want to probe more deeply into mindfulness. It goes beyond the casual, once-in-awhile meditation in popular culture, grounding mindfulness in daily practice, Zen teachings, and recent research in neuroscience. In Living Zen Remindfully, James Austin, author of the groundbreaking Zen and the Brain, describes authentic Zen training - the commitment to a process of regular, ongoing daily life practice. This training process enables us to unlearn unfruitful habits, develop more wholesome ones, and lead a more genuinely creative life. Austin shows that mindfulness can mean more than our being conscious of the immediate now. It can extend into the subconscious, where most of our brain's activities take place, invisibly. Austin suggests ways that long-term meditative training helps cultivate the hidden, affirmative resource of our unconscious memory. Remindfulness, as Austin terms it, can help us to adapt more effectively and to live more authentic lives. Austin discusses different types of meditation, meditation and problem-solving, and the meaning of enlightenment. He addresses egocentrism (self-centeredness) and allocentrism (other-centeredness), and the blending of focal and global attention. He explains the remarkable processes that encode, store, and retrieve our memories, focusing on the covert, helpful remindful processes incubating at subconscious levels. And he considers the illuminating confluence of Zen, clinical neurology, and neuroscience. Finally, he describes an everyday life of living Zen, drawing on the poetry of Basho, the seventeenth-century ha


Christmas as it is - Times Colonist (blog)

Probably most people have heard about the quality the Buddhists call 'suchness' or 'thusness' (Sanskrit, tathata). It is a central concept in Zen and is a succinct description of perfected meditation, the so-called Beginner's Mind. The Zen master Shunryu Suzuki-roshi's nascent english phrase for this was “things as it is”. Alas, the english language did not evolve within a meditation culture. The plural subject of his phrase does not match the singular verbal structure, but the correct grammar renders the phrase inaccurate. What does it mean to see things as it actually is. This implies a view that needs correction. When all is said and done, everyone believes that they already see things just fine. Zen tradition compares mental habits to goats. Suzuki-roshi used to say that the way to control your goats is to give them a large pasture. Zen students often desire to take refuge in certain Dharma practices such as the famous 'perfections' (Skt: paramita) of Zen lore. In Buddhism the idea of perfection is not a static ideal but an unfolding process predicated on kindness and harmlessness. The classic list of 6 Perfections in Zen are 'the Perfection of: generosity, morality, patience, vitality (energy), meditation and wisdom'. The cultivation of any of these perfections requires that the home turf, the mind of the meditator, be tended to, be kept clear of obstructing and inhospitable attitudes, the chief one of which is the attachment to self. As we approach the Christmas season it might be of interest to reflect just a little on the process called giving. In classic Buddhist thought 'giving' or 'generosity' (Skt: dana) is categorized and understood in three or four ways. This would be the food, clothing or the donations of money that help the poor or express value toward a teacher. Another recognized form of giving is to teach the Buddhist sutras and viewpoints. Buddhist teachings are considered to be of inestimable value. Some Buddhist teachers also consider offers of protection or refuge to be a worthwhile example of generosity. This is a more modern addition prompted by the emergence of a socially active style of Buddhist practice. Most importantly and most subtly, we can give the gift of non-fear. In the meditation hall, we practice this non-fear, so that we can share it with others. One of my Dharma brothers, Rick Spencer, has written eloquently on the topic. He says, “ Some things are easy for us to relinquish, and others are not so easy. We can begin to train in dana paramita by giving those things that are easy to give, just as we learn to cook by starting with easy recipes. The truth is that one day we will be called upon to give up everything. One day we will have to give up everything we know and love, we will breathe out never to breathe in again. When that time comes, will we be ready for it. “. Wayne Codling is a former Zen monastic and a lineage holder in the Soto Zen tradition. He teaches Zen style meditation in various venues around Victoria. Source:

  • Food Freedom Forever

    Hachette UK. 2016. ISBN: 9780349414836,0349414831. 272 pages.

    What does 'food freedom' mean to you? Maybe it's eating whatever you want without negative consequences to your health or waistline. (Good luck with that.) Maybe it's giving up your obsession with calorie counting, food restriction, and the scales. (Now we're getting somewhere.) Bestselling author and nutritionist Melissa Hartwig defines true food freedom as being in control of the food you eat, instead of food controlling you. It means indulging when you decide it's worth it, savouring the experience without guilt or shame, and the returning to your healthy habits. In Food Freedom Forever Melissa outlines a simple three-part plan that will help you to discover food freedom for yourself, no matter how out of control you feel. It will point you down a self-directed path that keeps you...

"When the eccentric Zen teacher Ikkyu, alleged to be an illegitimate son of the emperor, was asked, "What is the essence of Zen?" he replied, "Attention, attention, attention." Now, on our journey, as the first ascent begins, we turn upwards once more toward the light of our innocence. Developing our attention is the first labor of our turning, and the precondition for other labors. There are many ways attention may be gathered -- fishing, breaking stones, playing violin, performing surgery, talking on the phone -- but the core of them all is the spiritual work of meditation or prayer, service to the eternal emperor whose legitimate child we all are. Meditation does not itself accomplish the tasks of life but provides spaciousness, bringing the great background near, so that whatever we do, rising in the quiet, has force and beauty. In meditation, we take time, sit down, watch, while the silence accumulates -- which is how the spirit gathers to a vessel the...

Half the people on my tour of Thailand were reading this or something like this and when Catherine brought it home and started underlining like mad, I figured I would check it out. I was suspicious of the chanelled entity tone at first, but could find nothing I disagreed with and much that I was in complete agreement with so I can heartily recommend this Oprah phenomenon. More power to her for trying to thus transform the culture and save ourselves. It beats the techno fix (and doesn't negate it either). Tolle is not promising salvation though. That's for control queens. He teaches people how to be cool with uncertainty. He first describes the fix we're in by taking a large chunk of the body of knowledge usually called personal and interpersonal psychology and delivers it in an accessible narrative form to describe the follies of the ego. Much detail about the shenanigans of the ego, a real drama queen, she is, and much taken with material things. He then introduces what he calls...
