Zazen is a subtle practice. You and I are hardly ever just being here and experiencing. We’re usually thinking about what we’re going to do in the future, or trying to think of something clever to say, or remembering something that happened once, or wishing we were someplace else, or resisting something, reacting to something, pretending to be something, and so on. It’s very rare we think this moment is worth experiencing.
This reminds me of building the “Be Here Now Cafe” in Marin’s Mill Valley during the 1970s. Way a ‘head’ of its time.
And this reminds me of a book I built for a photography degree in Alberta called, “The Moment is Infinity”. Think about that.
