There is no I here. “I” is an illusion.

I am a student of Zen Buddhism. That is to say, I practice Zen Buddhism. It is challenging and difficult, but also, I like the changes I observe in my way of being.

The practice is … not only sitting. The practice is every day, every minute.

The practice is nothing special. It is a journey, a path, the Middle Way. It is a quest, but a quest without a goal. If you have a goal, that is already a big mistake.

Be without being in the future, where your goals lie.

Be without being in the past, where your suffering lies.

Be. And breathe.
