Zen is Upon Me

Well, not really. I have completed my seven-day intro, continuing my normal day to day routine of eating and lack of movement. I have also completed my 30 days of trying to turn my life around, to include giving meditation a fair shot and some serious time, cutting back on eating every Little Debbie cake … Continue reading Zen is Upon Me

37 Days to Zen – 1 is a Lonely Number

When I wake up in the morning, I will be one day closer than I was a month ago. And with my back feeling much better, I will be one day closer to exercising again. Now that I am a professional reader I have started two books at once. Surfing the Himalaya's by Frederick Lenz … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – 1 is a Lonely Number

37 Days to Zen – 2 Left

Two days left until I have my answer. The question: Is it possible for me to find Zen in 30 Days? Unless I bump into some guy named Zen in the corner store in the next few days, I will assume the answer is no. I do feel better though, minus my back from the … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – 2 Left

37 Days to Zen – 4 Days Left

Four days to go, or should I say four years to go... It will be like a walk up the side of a mountain in Nepal, barefoot, in the snow, with no Sherpa...carrying enough food to feed the rest of the monastery. And pulling a dead horse. But it will be worth it. Food intake … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – 4 Days Left

37 Days to Zen – 5 to Go

I remember a month ago I was typing out however many days to death. Or days to a heart attack, or stroke. I do feel better. I know I have said that over and over the last week's worth of posts, but I do. I am calmer. I am a little happier. Maybe not even … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – 5 to Go

37 Days to Zen – The Final Week

A week out of total and complete Zen, and I find myself searching even more. Searching for wisdom. Searching for peace. Searching for knowledge. Searching for total Zen. I woke up this morning and downed a few pieces of sausage for breakfast, washing it down with some ice cold orange juice. Lunch was a cheat, … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – The Final Week

37 Days to Zen – 9 to Go

With nine days to go, it at least is getting easier. I feel better; I feel lighter, I feel healthier, I feel that my mind is better off. The past two days I have spent in nature, away from my phone and computer, away from the sounds of society, and away from the stresses that … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – 9 to Go

37 Days to Zen – 10 and a Wakeup

I found Zen today, at least temporary Zen. I took the day to recharge and found myself in between a large flowing creek and the still waters that sustained as many Cypress trees as the eye could see. A primitive campsite, peace and quiet, and sounds of nature that included crows in the distance, turtles … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – 10 and a Wakeup
