Zen. a way of being... a state of focus that incorporates mind and body... total focus and our presence in, now. how very rare this kind of state is for humans living today. was it more possible in the past...? no way to know. we can only grapple with and try to understand the demands and distractions we have today. so what's so important about being zen, upon occation? because at the heart of every religion, that is the goal. a moment of peace and clairity. it is the place of balance. the understanding that we bring back from there helps us figure out what is really important. help us grow toward our true human nature.
in our second hour, Dennis will read sections of an artical he found that interested him... and jeff and susan will try to comment.

In this episode, host Robin Masiewicz and regular guests Jamie and Gloria continue their discussion about learning to focus on one thing at a time and doing tasks more consciously. Robin talks about Zen Tasking and eliminating distractions. The group also talks about Zen driving, hypermiling, and the advent of self-driving cars.
Key points from this episode:
Focus on one thing at a time, and give it your full attention
When we try to multi-task, what actually happens is we end up switching back-and-forth between tasks, paying less attention to both.
The more you switch back-and-forth, the more time you waste and the lower your quality of work
Distractions such as cell phone and text messaging are addictive, but you can train yourself not to respond to every ping or poke.
Schedule time for yourself; give yourself some uninterrupted time to work, relax, or reflect

Upon diagnosis, he found it difficult to learn coping strategies from books, so he developed his own unique strategies while building a successful advertising career and several start-ups.

Join me Monday, June 9th at 6 p.m. Pacific/9 Eastern on Radio Enso. My guest will be Zen Buddhist priest, meditation teacher, wife, and mother Karen Maezen Miller, who joins us to talk about her brand new book, Paradise in Plain Sight: Lessons from a Zen Garden.
"Zen teacher Karen Maezen Miller is known for helping her readers and students understand that the contentment they think of as “out there” is actually here and now. When she and her family land in a house in California with a hundred-year-old Japanese garden, she uses the paradise in her backyard to glean the living wisdom of our natural world. Miller’s recounting of the rocky path she and her husband navigated in their new home demonstrates how fear, anxiety, and doubt can blind us."
About Karen: I’m a wife and mother as well as a Zen Buddhist priest at the Hazy Moon Zen Center in Los Angeles. I write about spirituality in everyday life. My latest book is Paradise in Plain Sight: Lessons from a Zen Garden. I also wrote Hand Wash Cold: Care Instructions for an Ordinary Life and Momma Zen: Walking the Crooked Path of Motherhood. My writing is also included in several anthologies.
My middle name is pronounced “May-zen” and it is my dharma name, or Buddhist name. I’m happy to speak to community groups, schools, churches or conferences – any group that wants to be transported to a realm of calm assurance and infinite patience in 90 minutes or less. I also lead retreats around the country.

3 Generations & Over 55 Years Of Imprisonment
Tai Zen is a 3rd generation prisoner in his family.
His family had to endure the pain of incarceration and suffering across 3 generations of men spanning 3 different countries across the globe.
Between his grandfather, father, older brother, and his self, they will have spent a total of over 55 years in prison and over 95% of that incarceration time was done by his older brother, “Chop” and himself.
However, the mental, physical, and spiritual suffering that they all endured regardless of the reason why they were thrown in prison are all the same.
Today’s Prisons Have No Bars, Walls, Gun Towers, & Razor Wire
His imprisonment gave him the unique insight to experience and truly understand the nature of human “imprisonment” and “freedom”.
The prison he was in was very obvious because it had nasty steel bars, vicious razor wires, relentless perimeter trucks, trigger happy armed guards, overbearing watch towers, invisible motion sensors, etc. to ensure he could not escape.
However, as he looked at the supposedly “free” world around him after his release from prison, he began to notice the horrors of the “invisible” shackles and chains that imprisoned everyone around him.
His movement is to create freedom from self imposed prisons.
Buddha means “Awakened One”, someone who has awakened and sees things as they really are. According to AboutBuddha.org , a Buddha is a person who is completely free from all faults and mental obstructions. Because he has awakened from the sleep of ignorance and has removed all obstructions from his mind, he knows everything of the past, present, and future, directly and simultaneously. Moreover, Buddha has great compassion which is completely impartial, embracing all living beings without discrimination. Another important fact...The Buddha always drank coffee!!!
