Zen actually interprets as, “meditation,” so meditation is the center of zen observe. Meditation within the dharma room, meditation whenever you’re driving, meditation whenever you’re sitting on the dinner desk together with your households, all of it. Meditation means asking the query, “What am I?”, staying with do not know, and observing from a spot of not figuring out. What is going on proper now?
But for those who keep in your caught conditioned thoughts blaming everyone else for what is going on on, it is going to by no means change. Because the whole lot is only a repetition of what occurred earlier than. It might have a little bit bit of a brand new face as a result of it is a new second, however usually talking, it is only a repetition of what’s occurred earlier than. It’s been stated that the definition of madness is doing the identical factor over and over and anticipating a distinct consequence. But what Buddhism teaches, that until we alter our karma, until we will see who we’re and act in a different way on this very second, life will simply hold repeating itself over and over.
