Howdy from Santa Fe
I have been a spiritual seeker/finder for years. About ten years ago my Path led me to Zen because I kept hearing about the importance of meditation. I also practice Hatha Yoga and The Power of NOW (Eckhart Tolle). A few days ago I was reading "The Shambhula Guide to Aikido" (by John Stevens). When I read "Morihei's teachings focused on all the concerns of today's New Age: the necessity of unifying mind and body, conflict resolution instead of confrontation; everyday life as an act of worship, as a celebration; maintenance of a healthy lifestyle; the importance of regular meditation; and concern for and care of the environment", I thought, WOW... that sounds like ME! It seems I have been ready for a more pro-active and useful spiritual practice, and now I feel I have found it. I attend my first class next week and I am very excited about my new Path.
Thanks for Being!
