Now and Zen, what am I getting at? Now is right where your sitting, where your standing, sensing, and how your viewing the world that revolves around you. Now is your place in the universe. It is a constant and ever present partner in your existence. Zen is how you perceive your Now. Zen is your reflection on the present and your ideas of what the present is or is not. The words, "Be here Now" are a Zen Koan describing your attempt at rationalizing the relationship between you and your Now. These together are Zen. Zen is the tenth Kanji in a nine Kanji line that says, "I Am"
This is Now and Zen.
Peace and Balance,
