My mom has a zen garden. It is small and adorable. She goes there to pray and just be at peace. What is zen exactly?
One definition states, zen : a state of calm attentiveness in which one’s actions are guided by intuition rather than by conscious effort.
Adulting is hard. Prioritizing and keeping balance is even more so. The balance of intuition and effort is a key to being a successful adult. The key is trusting your intuition and making a conscious effort to pursue the life you desire all the while being kind to other humans along the way.
No matter what religion you prescribe to, zen is peace though your intuitive soul. You can experience it with a little conscious effort.
