Thank you Teo for this very interesting and very long topic. Obviously some situations are harder than others; there’s no doubt about it, some situations are harder than others.

As long as you’re alive there will be problems, which are both sources of suffering and opportunities for awareness. But the moments of letting go that come in practice are a...

The word ' Zen ' is the Japanese attempt at pronouncing the Chinese word 'Chan', which in turn is the Chinese attempt at pronouncing the Sanskrit word 'Dhyana', which translates as 'meditation'. And indeed, the word Zen conjures up an image of motionless Buddhist monks lost in deep meditation. www2.bakersfieldcollege.edu/resperic/what_is_the_ meaning _of_ zen .htm Chinese name Simplified Chinese 禅 Traditional Chinese 禪 WIKIPEDIA: Chan ( simplified Chinese : 禅 ; traditional Chinese : 禪 ;...
