Table of Contents Introduction History of Zen Zazen Koans Zen Arts Conclusory Remarks Author Bio Publisher Introduction The contemporary man is often at unease. Despite the significant advances in technology, rises in material standards of living, and the license to do almost whatever one pleases he is never at peace with himself and his surroundings. He rarely has the time to pursue peace. His schedule is hectic, he is constantly pestered by the demands of an incessant and all-enveloping communication network, and his work is rote and routine. His existence is functionary, tasteless, and uncreative. If this reminiscent of your experience of life, you need not feel ashamed. It is the plague of the contemporary and secular world. Our ancestors, despite unimaginable hardships, lived in a world populated by gods, spirits, ritual, and poetry. Their often agricultural lives revolved around the seasons, their sailors looked to the stars for directions, and their holidays (holy-days etymologically) were days of worship and celebration of the mysteries and glory of life. Everything in their world was rife with ultimate and hierarchic significance- everyone from the peasant to the king knew their place in the world, their relation to their fellow man, and their duties to their gods or God (anno domini). Unfortunately, the industrial and scientific revolutions have removed the superficial air of mystery that permeated nature and the core of experience. Capitalism’s re-evaluation of values and objects according to their utility and quantifiability made things like comfort, entertainment, and usefulness more “valuable” than non-quantifiable values like beauty, courage, and valor. Our technology has estranged us from nature and our jobs lack the color and beauty of the ancient craftsmen and farmers. It seems as though we have become slaves to a technical bureaucratic system that should be serving us! I have written this short text in the hope that it will bring peace, creativity, and serenity to your life. I do not expect that it will be the answer to all of your questions or problems in this life. I merely hope that it lead you to deepen your experience of reality, focus your attention, and cultivate your person. The pursuit of peace and serenity is one that, happily, is up to each of us individually to uncover through trial and error, or less painfully, through wisdom and insight. May you use this text to your advantage. Deo gratias.

Our culture believes that bigger is better, but Jill and Mark Savage believe that being satisfied with less materially can allow you to give your family more -- emotionally, relationally, and spiritually. Jill and Mark Savage, a husband and wife team who have made it on less than society says they need for more than twenty years, lay out a three-step plan for investing in the things that really matter. First, they help you identify a long-term vision for your family, and then they show you the attitudes that you will need to adopt to make that vision a reality. They then share practical action steps to help you make small and big changes -- from organising coupons more effectively to changing a career path or transitioning to a smaller home. Whether your goal is allowing both parents to cut back work hours and stress, making it financially feasible for one parent to stay home full-time, or simply carving out more time in the day for family, this book will help you get there. Sprinkled with true stories from families who have used Jill and Mark's techniques for living richly, the Savages' honest, straightforward, in-the-trenches approach will inspire and encourage you to live well while still putting your family first.

"The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak" - Hans Hofmann. Now, don't believe the common misconception. People fear the idea of minimalism because they perceive it to be synonymous with sacrifice. But it's not. Minimalism is a state of mind directed towards relieving stress from our lives. It is directed towards decluttering what is unnecessary so that we can appreciate the necessary; the desirable. Your life is cluttered, yet you want more. You have too many things to count, yet you want more. You don't use all of your things, yet you want more. Why? Because you're addicted; you're addicted to stuff. This is the conditioned response to the modern society that we live in, but it really doesn't have to be. In this book, you will learn: - An Introduction to Minimalism - What is Minimalism? - Why be Minimalist? - The Principles of Minimalism - Whether Minimalism Is Right for You - Materialism vs Minimalism - The Benefits of Minimalism - How to Achieve Minimalism; and - A 10 Step Guide to Achieving Minimalism! The truth is, you don't need all of your belongings - they're weighing you down. We are all so compelled to buy more, but use less. It's time. It's time to regain the freedom and control in your life. Introduce yourself to minimalism.

Follow this unique programme to discover the joy of living with less items and discover how liberating and fulfilling life becomes when you learn to live with less. The premise of this book is simple: if you don’t love it, lose it! Many people think that the more they own, the more contented and happy they will be – their lives become defined by their possessions. In fact, the opposite is often true: the more we have, the less happy and contented we are in mind, body and spirit. Decluttering expert Mary Lambert explains how having too much clutter can stop you moving forward in life, and how learning to let go of items we neither love or need is liberating and fulfilling. The challenge starts with an inventory of your personal possessions, then you begin the process of clearing out your items, addressing each area at a time, from clothes, to jewellery, to hobby items. Once you've tackled your personal items, you can get started on the rest of your household goods.
