Zen Judaism

zenjudaismThese are from (some are adapted from) David Bader’s book Zen Judaism:

Be here now.
Be someplace else later.
Is that so complicated?

—————————–

Drink tea and nourish life.
With the first sip … joy.
With the second … satisfaction.
With the third … peace.
With the fourth … Danish.

——————————

The Tao does not speak.
The Tao does not blame.
The Tao does not take sides.
The Tao has no expectations.
The Tao demands nothing of others.
The Tao is not Jewish.

——————————

Breathe in. Breathe out.
Breathe in. Breathe out.
Forget this and attaining Enlightenment will be the least of your
problems.

——————————

Though only your skin, sinews, and bones remain,
though your blood and flesh dry up and wither away,
yet shall you meditate and not stir until you have attained full Enlightenment
… But, first, a little nosh.

——————————

Be aware of your body.
Be aware of your perceptions.
Keep in mind that not every physical sensation is a symptom of a
terminal illness.
