I don’t want to have to admit this, especially on my own blog series, but I just looked up the definition of zen.
“The word Zen is derived from the Japanese pronunciation of the Middle Chinese word 禪 (dʑjen) (pinyin: Chán), which in turn is derived from the Sanskrit word dhyāna (ध्यान ), which can be approximately translated as “absorption” or “meditative state” – Wikipedia.
It also is a form of religion in the Far East, primarily China, but spread into Japan.
I say this because most of my life I have leaned towards to the old school Japanese way of simplistic living.
Whether art deco, living styles, lack of clutter styles, or architecture, I have always been fascinated with old world Japan to the point I think on occasion I was born at the wrong time.
It strikes me as odd because I feel as if my mind is clearer.
A little more focused than usual, which might just mean I can spend more than three minutes on something without getting bored and setting it down.
And now I find that Zen is an ancient Japanese form of Buddhism.
No, it hasn’t changed my mind about my beliefs, but it has opened my mind to new possibilities.
I threw you all off with that diatribe so I could lead into eating a king sized Mounds today.
I did cheat.
And it was delicious.
Other than that, food and beverage consumption was the same.
Meditation remained law of attraction this morning, and law of attraction this evening.
As far as the candy bar, please don’t judge me…and if you do, I will still fall asleep tonight.
If you haven’t tried change, I would suggest it.
Trying something like this sure is cheaper than medication, and much much safer.
Until tomorrow, while passing up another candy bar…
