Hi guys, im Luke and just registered on this site, so i figured i ought to introduce myself. Im a pretty chill guy and some of my favorite hobbies are hiking, playing guitar and skateboarding. Anyways, the past few months i've been studying and thinking a lot about philosophy and now ive decided that im going to start practicing some zen to help me understand more about life and the world. Peace!

vertical line Some people say they practice Zen.
Zen is a way of life.
You do or you don't do
There is no practice Zen.

People may practice Zazen
Zazen is the method used to become more aware of self
Good luck in your practice ... hahahaha

No, it isn't.
It is letting thoughts arise and letting them go
To disengage the attention from the train of thoughts
To become more self aware
To learn more about oneself
