A dream, an illusion, a bubble,
A dewdrop, a flash of lightning.
View all created things like this.

vertical line Posted on Nov.20.2012 @ 10:59AM EDT by starduster

I cannot define Zen.  I cannot say what it is, or what it is not.

It is more of a feeling to me than a thought or concept.

When I stop thinking, and let out a deep breath,

at the end of the breath, before taking another one,

that is when I feel Zen the most.

A sort of suspended animation, not thinking, not even breathing,

still a part of it all, just being.
