Where's Your Zen?

Is your Zen lost? Misplaced? Gone? Does it only appear when you're feeling calm and peaceful? Is it next to impossible to find when you're stressed or angry? Do you mindlessly gulp down your coffee without giving Zen a second thought? Not to worry. You're not alone. All of us at one time or another have misplaced our Zen. It isn't lost, though it may have wandered off for a while, looking for you in the moment when you lost it.

Zen is everywhere, all the time. Your Zen is hiding in your coffee and is easily found when you look for it. Wherever you go, there you are. You can journey mindfully through life with Zen coffee. Zen is flexible. Zen is fluid. Zen fits your lifestyle. Zen is in every breath you take. Breathe and be present in the moment, no matter where you are, what you are doing, how you are feeling, or what is happening. Breathe and be completely present with your feelings in the moment you are experiencing. That's where your Zen is.

You are so right...Zen is a mind uncluttered, a heart at peace, a spirit empowered and calm. It is ours to access at any second...
THANK YOU.

Thanks for coming by to visit my blog. What a lovely and relaxing blog you have. I mostly find my zen in tea but the occasional cup of coffee too!
Aloha,

Yes, The Zen Is In You... Hard to find at times, but it's always there. It waits patiently for us to return...
