Zen

I have discovered something.  Something I have been told by multiple therapists but I have not given enough creedence to.  I am happier when I live in the moment.

1. Life means suffering.
2. The origin of suffering is attachment.
3. The cessation of suffering is attainable.
4. The path to the cessation of suffering.

Those are the four noble truths of the Buddhist faith.  Number four refers to the eightfold path of actual practice.

I followed Zen Buddhism for some time a few years ago.  I learned to meditate and learned a fair amount about being in the moment.  I’ve done a few things *not* related to Buddhism lately to help myself focus on where I am to stop my racing mind, and it is showing promise.

I can never just believe that I have found the answer.

 

I have to try, though.
