The essence of Zen

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

It has been a contemplative day, tinged with sadness. Goodnight everyone, sleep well.

  1. Sorry to hear about the tinge of sadness. I disagree with the sentiment, I’m afrad. Those who do not think of the future are leaving its creation to those who have vision.

  2. Zen – Rick beat me to it with the quote, but do you want to talk about the serious bit?


  3. tom and Oz the sadness was not mine. There are periods when one needs to get away from ‘things’ and it is to those quiet periods that the quotation refers.

  4. Zen – Furry nuff, but an impetuous baring of the soul recently helped me enormously. There really are some very thoughtful and supportive people on this site. Each to their own. 🙂
