Productive procrastination? Zen Remedies

By darinlhammond, published on Oct 16, 2012

... flow of my work, I defeat myself by taking a break just because it's on my schedule. You are capable of doing hard things. Remind yourself of this, and disciplining yourself to work on those difficult tasks is rewarding and satisfying. Force yourself to start the task despite the difficulty. Meditation is a key to self discipline. In meditation, you require yourself to impose limits on time, thought, activity, and the world around you. Forcing your mind to be empty for a time is a challenging task, but it changes the way your mind works and helps you to create self-discipline.

You can create a space of creativity!

By Tony Samara, published on Dec 8, 2011

...We’re having many experiences but we’re not actually having any experience because we’re far removed from the essence that registers the experience. We’re somehow separate so we’re having an experience but it is from a space that doesn’t really experience anything.

Meditation for me is bringing back this creativity, this playful aspect of what it is to be a human being into life. It’s not about a serious technique that you have to do in a certain way or do this or do that, because if you don’t do it in this way or that way, then somehow you’re missing the... (more)

The Spark

By Lynda Lehmann, published on Nov 13, 2011

She is the tiny voice that sings "I am"

in the gloom of darkest night.

She is the Song of the Soul

revealing itself,

reveling in tiny moments of truth.

She is the pulse that quivers with hope

in the rubble of man's discontent,

and the flame of commitment

in the rearing of a child.

She lays a gentle sheen

on the tired world on a moonless night,

filling hollows and thickets and stark rooms

with murmurs of inspiration.

She quells the thirst for empty pleasures

and rides the waves of painful days.

Heal Your Own Heart, Heal the World

By Lumiere, published on Nov 2, 2011

I have spent the last eight months intensely focusing on my meditation practices, with a commitment to healing my own heart in hopes to help others heal. During this season, it becomes essential to withdraw ones energy from external creative projects to recharge your batteries. What I have become aware of during this time has amazed me because life seems somewhat surreal, there is a certain detachment from things that once had great meaning to me, now life is quite like watching a movie, a comedy of sorts. Everyone has a story, everyone has drama, problems abound, the world is spinning with... (more)

Adversity, Art and Resilience

By Lumiere, published on Apr 27, 2011

In the process of making many life changes I stumbled upon a Borders bookstore that was closing and was drawn to a daily devotional by Franklin Jentezen titled, Right People Right Place Right Plan. Every morning when I wake up, the first thing I do is read the journal page for the day, shower, get dressed, and take the dog for a walk down to the brook. Together, the dog and I commune with nature, where we are surrounded by a stream of fresh water, little yellow flowers in bloom, chirping birds, chipmunks, rabbits, and an occasional deer or two. In the peacefulness of nature, I tune out the... (more)

City Living - The City Is My Muse

By Jack Bates, published on Feb 19, 2010

The City, she blankets us all and provides without judgment. We shape her even as we are shaped by her. Statues to our victors and fallen become part of our city as she molds the minds of our children. Crayons in hand, they draw dreams of firemen, plumbers, and peacocks at the zoo.

Our City has grit, rhythm, and a hustling hostility that drives many to pray, many others to sin. Smoking, drinking, gambling, betting on sports. Sports of men and animals, thinking ourselves civilized as we attend opera and concerts.

Glamor and glitz of our greed living side by side with our lights... (more)

The Deer Hunter

By Drewdacker, published on Feb 5, 2010

An hour before twilight my Jeep rolls to a stop on an empty dirt road. The sudden absence of headlights causes the starlit sky to glow giving the dark trees a revealing background. I gather my things and walk along the shoulder, searching for the familiar path through the shrubs and seedlings and watching my breaths swirl before me. Before I leave the road in favor of the softer ground I give the stars a final, neck straining appraisal. Then I step lightly, heel to toe, through the grasses and leaves toward the formless trees in the distance.

In the pre-dawn hours the trees are quiet.... (more)
