Tonight i just surfed the net, randomly Googling 'instant zen'.
I started to read some of the pages, and felt my mind strain.
I then was hungry and decided to have some hot instant oatmeal and some decafe tea before bed.
i had started the kettle of water, and now it started to boil. I left the computer and turned off the stove, lifted the kettle, and poured the water in my cereal bowl and tea cup.
All the while, I concentrated just on what I was doing. I suddenly realized that, when I do everyday activities like this, I feel at peace, zen-like.
Whenever I go searching for web pages or books for inspiration, I actually take a step back.
I no longer need books. They are actually detrimental. I need to stop seeking and just live my regular, every-day life.
