Daily Zen Testimonials
from Fellow Wayfarers...
"You are indeed a bright light in the midst of chaos. My house burned to the ground Saturday, and I unable to focus, however, reading the September Journal, I realize all is perfect and that I too, can maintain a steadfast approach in this time of transition. Thank you."
"When I ring the meditation gong I open to the idea of people all over the world meditating with me. And I sit, feeling all our spirits together. What an incredible sense of being. Again, I thank you."

Daily Zen has provided an oasis of calm and serenity. I really enjoy sending your Zen cards to family members and they enjoy receiving them. We have been blessed many time by this work and Daily Zen. Thank you!

"Today's quote was helpful. In the midst of a turbulent time it is not easy to maintain, or even attain, the balance and calm of your beautiful quote... but hopefully I will continue to evolve in that direction. Peace to all...."
"This is just to thank you and your team. You saw me through, with yor regular snippets of wisdom and insight and comfort, when I was enduring my darkest time; both my mother and father died and I was brutally attacked in the street and left for dead. Whenever life becomes almost too much to bear, I read excerpts from your journals and links. These are a source of comfort. Thank you again."
"I know I've thanked you in the past, but this journal has prompted me to do so again. It's very hard to find an approach on a way to live in these modern times. So many obstacles and options. The Way is a hard path to follow in these 'pedal to the metal times' we live in. Thank you for helping try and slow things down in my own mind. The service you provide is truly appreciated."

All I know is that when I want to give gifts to my friends, relatives, family and the rest of the World I want to give them something which plants a seed of subtle refinement and upliftment - or even moments of expansion. The offerings of Zen daily do just that. Refine, elevate the mind and helps to heal causes and conditions for our suffering. When the mind expands beyond desire, the act of good intention is more important than the actual gift, people feel loved.

"A friend from Denmark sent my wife and I a Zencard. Since then, I have made signing on to Daily Zen a part of my morning ritual. The people of this site have a simple grasp of the Nature and the Experience, of not only Buddhism or of Taoism, but of the commonality of all spiritual practices. Change is inevitable, but never let Daily Zen lose its focus. Peace be with you all"
"Just wanted to thank you for having and keeping me on your list. It is the best thing I receive on email!"
"Thank you very much for all the energy and care you gave to everyone, always.

Love and Peace, Health and Work, the best for all of you..."

I purchased an Aum poster a few years back and currently have it framed in my bedroom. I see it every night before going to bed and every morning on waking up. It begins and ends my day with the tranquil peace of Aum.
