The essence of Zen is meditation. Meditation is Zen. Lately, I have been writing, encouraging meditation. I am on a bit of a meditation kick. If I could kick you to make you meditate, I would. I don’t know how to make happiness last. I don’t know how to make you feel loved and appreciated with words. I don’t know how to dispel ignorance. I do know that meditation works and it can help anybody. The best way I know to help people is to promote meditation. If you know this and you really want to invite change in your life, my encouragement may move you. Zen can be complicated. Meditation is simple.
