I have been reading this book (“Zen, Simple Seikatsu No Susume”), and it reminded me of living a simple life.
I recall a constant remark of a Tae Kwon Do teacher: practice the essential, let it be simple. Also, in my Sangha, the teacher said, zen is simple, seat in silence and stillness, there’s nothing else to zen, but simply live the present moment as it is.
Now, as a mindfulness coach, this is the message I want to share: the practice will not add a thing to your life. Just keep it simple, live the moment as it is, without judgement.
I know it sounds very simple, but may not be. It means to let go many things we have been adding to ourselves, many possetions that are not important, many tags we have been creating on us and on others. But the process is worth it, you may feel free.
