Mini Mindfulness Break for March 23, 2019

We have consciousness, and this consciousness is like a computer. A computer does not work by itself; somebody controls the computer. Our consciousness also does not make itself work; “something” controls our consciousness. Then our consciousness makes science. So this something controls consciousness, and consequently science. This something is not science, not consciousness, but has consciousness and science. So I say to you, if you attain this something, you understand consciousness and understand science. The name for that is Zen.

– from Only Don’t Know by Zen Master Seung Sahn

May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering!

All my best,
