Welcome to The Podcast
Each week I'll take a brand new look at daily issues and problems we encounter. When looked at from the Zen point of view, problems turn into Koans. Not only do we then find unexpected solutions and guidance, but we become able to enjoy whatever arises in our lives. This approach puts an end to struggle, conflict and frustration on the spot. As life turns into a koan, it turns into a form of play.
In this process we discover new aspects of our being and realize that whatever arises in our lives, comes bringing a gift in its hands.
In a sense, we become old fashioned explorers. Old fashioned explorers loved life, they traveled far and wide discovering new lands, moments and new ways of being. We, too, can become explorers today, discovering new worlds within, new responses and understanding. We can learn to walk on the earth our feet truly planted and happy. A blessing to all we meet along the way.
