vertical line Posted on Jul.10.2018 @ 04:14AM EDT by Enver m.
You live just to be happy.

With the help of money either physically
happiness
or
spiritual happiness


And I've chose Zen.

vertical line Why do you live?  You live for the zenjack.  The zenjack is operating when you think you’re hijacking a thread by farce, but unbeknownst to your critical faculties, you have been secretly abducted by zenguidians for probing tests.

vertical line Excellent.

Zen Master Dogen’s simple advice is this: Put aside the intellectual habit of chasing words and phrases, and learn to take the backward step that shines the light inward. Letting go of conceptual distractions in the mind
