“The true purpose of Zen is to see things as they are, to observe things as they are, and to let everything go as it goes… Zen practice is to open up our small mind. “The best way is to understand yourself, and then you will understand everything. So when you try hard to make your own way, you will help others, and you will be helped by others. Before you make your own way you cannot help anyone, and no one can help you.” Shunryu Suzuki
Meditation is all about making your mind go blank with no attachments, no expectations, just blank. It is not a technique or a system of techniques; it’s a way of being. You can look at meditation as instrumental as a method of discipline that allows you to redefine and look deep in your capacity to pay attention and lay in the awareness of each moment. Zen meditation is said to help you to gain insight, regulate attention, and increase your general awareness. You will be trying to place yourself into a clear state of mind with absolutely no thoughts at all so that you can attain deeper access to your unconscious mind, and it will also improve your mood.
