CTNgreen Zen - The Attitude and Lifestyle of a life with meaning, true green

‘Satori’ in Zen means a moment of presence…

“To end the misery that has afflicted the human condition for thousands of years, you have to start with yourself and take responsibility for your inner state at any given moment. That Means Now. Ask yourself, “Is there negativity in me at this moment?” Then, become alert, attentive to your thoughts as well as your emotions. Watch out for the low-level unhappiness in whatever form, such as discontent, nervousness, being “fed up”, and so on. Watch out for thoughts that appear to justify or explain this unhappiness but in reality cause it. The moment you become aware of a negative state within yourself, it does not mean you have failed. It means that you have succeeded. Until that awareness happens, there is identification with inner states, and such identification is ego.”

Eckhart Tolle’s book (above quote) “Oneness With All Life”, a companion book to his “A New Earth”, reveals to us the ’self power’ that we have within ourselves to control our ego’s negative influence over our thoughts…we can have happiness! It’s all about being conscious with out thoughts, in the present moment.

Let’s seek out our inner selves, & find Peace within…
