The man of Zen walks in Zen and sits in Zen for the simple reason that meditation cannot be just a part of your life. You cannot make a fragment of your life meditative; it is not possible to be meditative for one hour and then non-meditative for twenty-three hours. It is like breathing. Meditation is the breath of your soul. Just as breathing is the life of the body, meditation is the life of the soul.
One has to reach to the absolute state of awareness: that is Zen. You cannot do it every morning for a few minutes or for half an hour and then forget all about it. It has to become like your heartbeat. You have to sit in it, walk in it. Yes, you have even to sleep in it.
Zen does not talk about God at all, but only of godliness: a certain quality, a fragrance which is everywhere. Only when you have the capacity to learn will you be able to see it. All that is needed on your part is the capacity to be silent, receptive, welcoming, open.
The Breath of the soul
This is sacred, this is divine
And something more
A question of being
Playing on the Path
Absolute Love in Absolute Freedom
Better Mad Than Stupid
The Head and the Heart
