Today’s Haiku: Focus Yourself

Begin each day strong

Focus on what you do well 

Facing down your fears 


A Zen Meditation

Claiming my own mind
Seeking the truest power
Releasing all else

This is the deepest truth for students of Zen. Yet is hard to live this, at times, at least. Hence the need for constant practice and discipline. Mastering resisting our temptation to steal our future from ourselves.
