  • Is This Meditation?

    The dictionary offers a simple definition of meditation, but our minds tend to embellish the definition and make it into something mysterious and esoteric. There are many different types of meditation, and the external form of any one of them may be the image we carry in our minds of what meditation is. This [...]

  • Frustration

    Indeed, we all have suffered frustration, and sometimes we let it carry us into a state of anxiety and depression. From experience, we know that that state of mind never relieves the frustration; it only aggravates it. Let’s take a moment to look at the most common source of frustration and then how we might [...]

  • Art Spirit #4 – Quotes for March

    "It is not too much to say that art is the noting of the existence of order throughout the world, and so, order stirs imagination and inspires one to reproduce this beautiful relationship existing in the universe, as best one can. Technique is to me merely a language, and as I see life more and [...]

  • There Are No Coincidences

    …continued from Using Envy to Reach Your Goals For a moment let’s look at the natural law of cause and effect and its impact on our everyday lives. For every action there is a reaction. Anytime we take an action (cause) something happens (effect). This is not a difficult principle to grasp. But sometimes [...]

  • Put It On the Shelf

    Letting Go 3:4 …continued from Letting Go Whether we live in a bustling metropolis, a crowded suburb, or a sleepy rural area, most of us are always and utterly busy with things to do, places to go, people to see. And there’s never enough time to do it all. Feed the kids, walk the [...]

  • Art Spirit #3 – Quotes for February

    ... continued from More Art Spirit I was searching for inspiration today to work on some drawing or painting – as a newbie art student – and I was resisting working on my blog. All I had to do was pick up this book and I got inspired to do both. First this, to [...]

  • Walking Meditation

    Those of us who are lucky enough to be able to walk, do so at least a little bit every day. Yet, when the word meditation is tacked onto it and we are invited by a teacher to do some walking meditation, many of us become clumsy and off balance. We may even begin [...]

  • Is It Success or Failure?

    FAILURE Failure is merely a matter of opinion, time, and attitude. Opinion: Failure is bad. Whenever something happens—especially if it doesn’t conform to what society and we think is the optimal scenario—we judge it as bad and look for someone to blame. The one who usually gets the brunt of it in the end [...]

  • Using Envy to Reach Your Goals

    …continued from Money & Spiritual Practice – Part 2 Okay, so you want things. There’s no getting around it and no easy way to discard these desires. It’s time to really look at what you want and why. Often our desire is stimulated when we see what others have. Our envy button gets pushed as [...]

  • Letting Go

    Letting Go 3:3 …continued from Learn to Listen, Listen to Learn Letting go is probably the most difficult concept to grasp and the most challenging action to perform on the Quiet Corner path. Yet without this in our repertoire, all else is for naught. I continue to learn valuable lessons about myself and my world [...]

  • The Song of Zazen

    The holidays, the election, and the uncertainty ahead have many of us worried and out of sorts: I know no better way to return to the center and maintain serenity than meditation. In my case it takes the form of Zazen – “sitting meditation” – and below is a beautiful paean for this practice [...]

  • Quotes for December

    Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing. Dennis Waitley   Uncertainty is the only certainty there is, and knowing how to live with insecurity is the only security. John Allen Paulos   The future is completely open, and [...]

  • Faith & Breathing

    Faith Even if you take all the suggestions in my books and this blog, you are bound to come up against a wall now and then. You may sometimes wonder exactly what you are doing, as nothing seems to be happening. And at times throughout this quiet-corner process (there’s that term again!), you may question [...]

  • Bodhisattva’s Vow

    When I, a student of Dharma, Look at the real form of the universe, All is the never-failing manifestation Of the mysterious truth of Tathagata. In any event, in any moment, and in any place, None can be other than the marvelous revelation Of its glorious light. This realization made our ancestral teachers and [...]

  • More Art Spirit – Quotes for November

    ... continued from The Art Spirit "The man who has honesty, integrity, the love of inquiry, the desire to see beyond, is ready to appreciate good art. He needs no one to give him an art education; he is already qualified. He needs but to see pictures with his active mind, look into them for [...]

  • Relationship Meditation

    There is probably nothing that challenges us more than our relationships, since every aspect, every nuance of our life involves a relationship of some sort. Every waking and sleeping moment, we are engaged in a relationship with something or someone—with our spouse, boss, children, friends; with coworkers, store clerks, strangers; with our thoughts, dreams, [...]

  • Money & Spiritual Practice – Part 2

    …continued from Money & Spiritual Practice – Part 1 It is not money or winning the lottery but the desperate desire for them that creates our unhappiness. And the idea that money is the root of all evil doesn’t mean that when we have money like Evelyn’s or when we win the lottery we [...]

  • Acceptance & Projection

    Acceptance Through each step of the process of finding, facing, and using a quiet corner, you will learn a great deal about yourself. The first thing you might learn is how you deal with the process. While there is some instant gratification in three-part, three-breath breathing, most of the lasting and strengthening rewards of spending […]

  • The Paradox of Ego

    The idea, or rather the reality, of an ego is paradoxical. On the one hand, it gives us a healthy supply of self-esteem, which in turn provides us with the necessary energy to face the world and its inherent storms. On the other hand, it can drive us so deep into self-consciousness that all we […]

  • Work Can Be a Drug

    (an Escape, an Excuse, a Reason, an Alibi) …continued from Frustrated Ambitions Sometimes we simply do not want to face ourselves. There is nothing wrong with taking a break from self-examination once in a while, but often this break becomes a way of life and we never return to the mirror because our mind tells […]
