Lately been practicing Zen meditation and really have found inspiration with teachers like Gil Fronsdal, Shohaku Okumura, and Shoryu Bradley.

Some tidbits of info that have really improved how I approach it.

"Zazen is like art only perfect art. This is expression. Pure expression."

"Zazen is returning home and sitting in peace"

The practice I do is one of just sitting. I just sit, I don't do any visulations or have a meditation object or work with the breath. I just sit. Superificial stuff is present sometimes, deep stuff is present sometimes, weird mind states, ordinary mind states, busy mind, quiet mind, etc. It's a journey of learning who I am and what this life is about.

I am planning to check out Gyobutsuji Zen Monastery and maybe deepen the practice a bit.

What about others here, do any meditation or found any certain things that really help or deepen and or improve ones life?

I am surprised more moms aren't meditating helps with feeling peaceful and being fully present to enjoy the special things.
