Awesome and Someless

Awesome and Someless! I did miss the 112 meditation revealed to Paul Reps by Swami Lakshmanjoo. This is the gold mine of the original work.

Zazen is everyday living.

Full of Emptiness. Empty is full within. Long time short time. Swim on the surface with your feet on the bottom.
