Sensei Post in A Zen Thing, Quotes

Only in solitude do we find ourselves.
— Miguel De Unamuno

The hardest thing to do for most people is to sit quietly and do nothing. If you have never tried it, you should but you have to do it right. To truely know solitude place a hard (wooden or metal) chair in the center of a quiet room. Sit in the chair with good posture and your hands on your knees. Now clear your mind or quiet your mind may be a better way to say it. See how long you can stay like this with a quiet mind before you being to feel restless or distracted. Repeat. You have begun your journey to knowing yourself. Most people have a hard time with this exercise. If you think about it that means they have a hard time spending time by themselves! Good luck.
