Who am I?
Who are you?
And how do we know that our experience of who we are is real?
My search for answers to the questions above started early.
I was born and raised in a Buddhist family. My childhood was normal (I think;)) until I turned 13 and had to move to Denmark with my family.
It was difficult for me to adapt to a new culture that was so different from what I was used to. I didn’t feel that I belonged to the new place and it brought me lots of sufferings and isolation. I later realized that it was the first “identity crisis” that Life gave me to trigger my search for “the Truth”.
When I was around 20 years old, I began to practice yoga and meditation. It was the beginning of my Zen practice but I didn’t realize it then. But step by step, Zen led me deeper and deeper into a realm that words hardly can describe.
Honestly, I didn’t choose Zen to be my spiritual practice. The Path of Zen just unfolded naturally for me. Probably because by nature, I’m an introvert person. I like being alone, in quietness.
Through Zen gateway for the past 20+ years, I’ve discovered the power of inner peace, compassion, forgiveness, and grace.
It was needed for my own survival. Life has been gracefully enough to give me many crises so that I could work on myself and transform all that is not Real.
Indeed, I’m now grateful for all the sufferings that I went through.
My way of living Zen is very much feminine, holistic and practical. I always strive to flow gracefully with the Life Force. It’s a lifetime practice that I’ve committed to.
