Zen is not some kind of excitement but
concentration on our usual everyday routine
Shunryu Suzuki


See the world for what it is,

See your drink & the fizz,

See the trees, grass & this,

All has its place, all are His…


See the sky, changes each day,

See the fields, growing corn,

See the sun, there each morn,

See all of life, of it we adorn…


See your life,

See it without strife,

The key meditation,

Meditation is concentration…
