How Do I Know If I'm Doing Zen Right?

| No Comments
Almost every day, somebody asks me to judge whether they are making "progress" in their Zen practice ... a practice that's based on dropping all idea of "progress".

Yet, there are some ways to know that there's been some "progress", though it's usually something for the student to confirm for the student, more than by seeking confirmation from any teacher.

Those ways can range from a deep, abiding sense of being at home in life, at one with life, embracing of life ... to an All-Fulfilling Taste of Who One Truly Is, One's Original Face, that ONE IS LIFE.

(remember: recording ends soon after the beginning bells;
a sitting time of 20 to 35 minutes is recommended)
