Hi, my name is Ford. I have written a book and created this blog to initiate a most enigmatic conversation. A conversation that many of you, like me, have waited a lifetime to have. A conversation that because of various dogmatic features of our society we felt ashamed for exploring. The thoughts and questions were always there, but because of guilt, lack of understanding, and support we have been stifling those questions. Now all of that ends.

Though we are all "One" in a higher conscious self, we have divided ourselves into many for the purposes of exploring various aspects of our own imagination. I encourage "Other Me's" out there to participate in this blog and share your own thoughts on the meaning of life, the nature of consciousness, and your discovery of the true nature of reality.

ZEN

After writing my first book, I started to gain an interest in Zen Buddhism. Although I am against any kind of Dogmatic structure to higher consciousness (just as Buddha was when he laughed at his disciples for writing his teachings down) I found the idea of ZEN to be 100% on target with the meaning of life.

In all of my study, I can tell you with confidence now that ZEN is really quite simple. ZEN is the Understanding and Awareness of your reality as it is right "NOW". "Now" for everyone is a beautiful and happy place. The truth is, unless you are on fire, "Now" is the happiest place in the world once you see it for what it is. If you are presently on fire, "now" might not be too pleasant but rest assure, Nirvana will soon come to the rescue.

The other part of the apprehension of ZEN is in the recognition of your waking thoughts just as in meditation. Understand that your reality is a reflection of your thoughts and how you feel about those thoughts. Understanding this and more importantly truly believing this, will give you a completely different view of the world. You will recognize yourself as the creator and you can then ponder over why the world around you is as it seems. You can ask yourself, why you would I manifest certain ideas into existence? You can then understand that if you don't like the world around you, change it from within.

Upon recognizing these thoughts you will soon realize that life itself is a beautiful ballet between finding Self-Worth (loving yourself, receiving) and Appreciation (gratitude for the experience, giving). It is when we are not in balance with this understanding that the world in front of our eyes seemingly becomes unpleasant. It isn't, because "now" is always a beautiful place. Within that apprehension, you will regain your balance.

If you accomplish this, there is really no need to meditate, because you are always meditating. You are constantly aware of your thoughts and it is through that awareness you can choose which details to focus on. If you only focus on happiness, The Law of Attraction has shown us time and again that the universe will continue to provide happiness. No matter what.

That was really beautiful!!! I liked that I really did :) Very wise words, when out outer life is out of balance it is because we are out of balance in our mind and soul and focusing more on what we don't want than on what we do want. Keep up the good work.
