  • Re: What does everyone practice :)

    Is "I don't know" an acceptable answer?

  • Re: zen

    "To practice Zen Buddhism is to train oneself to eliminate hatred, anger, and selfishness and to develop loving-kindness toward all."
    -Thich Thien-An

    But, sometimes that is a very lofty goal. I've found that if I sit and try to just be, it's a good enough start. When you pour your tea, only think about pouring your tea. You'll get it as you do it.

  • Re: Monk health

    I've always found that my thinking is much more clear after a good workout (running in particular). I'm also very mindful when I work out, all of life's troubles and other nonsense just float away as I am fully experiencing the moment.

    Certainly couldn't be a bad thing, in moderation.

    I really, really love it when my 4 year old tells me to "just breathe, dad. In through the nose, out through the mouth. You'll be fine."

  • Re: Coffee ???

    I have 2-3 cups of coffee in the morning, then it's tea and water for the rest of the day.

    The coffee snaps me out of the fog of my meds and the actions of baby twins all night.
