Zen at work
« To practice is simply to be comepletely engaged in whatever you are doing. If you are completely engaged, each and every thing you do is zazen. Walking is zen, sitting is zen. Whether you speak or remain silent, whether you are active or at rest, your body will be calm and peaceful. »
