Do not go after the past,
Do not lose yourself in the future.
For the past no longer exists,
And the future is not yet here.
By looking deeply at things just as they are,
In this moment, here and now,
It is hard for me to find someone where I live locally that would be a great friend/mentor in Zen Buddhism. So I figured perhaps I may be able to find one online. Just thought I'd put this out there...
Does anyone here work with a guru, spiritual coach, or mentor? Or do you just look to the Buddha for inspiration and learning?
any help you could gi ve me would be greatly appreciated.
