Zenity: sanity by zen, living in an insane world …

“Zenity” is my term for the beneficial effects that a zen practice and a regular routine have on us.

So, sanity by zen.

Living simply and in the moment becomes the daily ordering principle which brings not only a peaceful tranquil mind, but also the tremendous joy of being able to bring the sacred into life on a daily basis. Sounds more than sane to me.

Our Zen Sangha met one weekend – in Baltimore, West Cork, Ireland. We had been chatting over tea, as usual after our sit, and the conversation once more turned to “Beginner’s Mind” a constant topic for us. I’ve been reading You Have to Say Something Dainin Katagiri’s book over the last year or so, and the consensus of opinion was that Master Katagiri talks so well with the beginner in mind, about daily routine.

In living with Zen, and with a regular practice, we’re acknowledging and respecting our innate Buddha mind, our individual Buddha hearts and of course our own Buddha nature. So the essence of our life becomes in regularly placing ourselves in a silent, simple place of harmonising with humanity.

Harmony instead of insanity in a chaotic world
