Update: New edition will be available for purchase on Amazon from August 2020.
Zen. Meditation. Inner Peace. Do we really need it? If so, how can we “get” it?
Perhaps you don’t think that you need it. After all, Zen can seem to be boring. An image of a Zen person sitting in meditation, unaffected by life’s dramas, might appear to be cold. Where is the passion? Excitement? And is desire really that bad?
What if I tell you being Zen is not about being disengaged in life, withdrawn, and impassionate? Instead, it’s about experiencing life in full awareness where you’re capable of embracing everything that life is offering to you.
It’s all about the HOW. And the only way to know Zen is to experience Zen in daily life.
Therefore I’ve created ZenLife Journal; a personal transformation tool that supports you in living life with Zen wisdom consciously. It guides you to go beyond your mindset and discover a more profound dimension within you that is wise. It also supports you to experience the power of inner peace so that you know how to transform life’s difficulties.
The Journal contains:
– Twenty-six undated weeks so that you can start anytime.
– Thirteen spiritual texts that convey core wisdom and understanding of Zen. Read them meditatively, take pause, and contemplate.
– Thirteen artworks from the artist Bhavana Gesota for you to enjoy and appreciate. Zen wisdom exists in them too.
– Over sixty quotes and “Heart-shaped reminders” that guide you back to Peace and Presence. Use them to return to your true Self so that you can intentionally “flow” throughout the days.
– Designed spaces such as the “Today, I” box, “Date” box, and the “Heart speaks” area, which you can use to plan your days and weeks mindfully. For example, you can focus on one thing that you’re grateful for and write it in the “Today, I” box. Choose three things that you must do during the day and prioritize them in the “Date” box. At the end of the week, use the half-a-page “Heart speaks” space to write your dreams, or ideas for new creation in the following week.
Last but not least, I’ve also created extra free resources on this page that supports your use of the journal. You can find audio talks that guide you to deepen your understanding of the spiritual texts and meditation guides that help you to cultivate Zen habits as well.
If you wish to have more writing space, take a look at our ZenLife Notebook. The design is different as it’s explicitly created for longer writings. The spiritual texts and artworks are the same. There are some minor changes in the quotes so that they fit the Notebook better. But the purpose is still to support you to live a conscious life full of wisdom, joy, and peace.
Update: A new edition of the Journal and the Notebook can be purchased through different Amazon sites from August 2020. If you wish to know more, sign up for my ZenLetter and you’ll get an email from me about the launch.
