As a global citizen, your life might be busy, flying to and from different cities, buying this or that, visiting home town and vacation homes. For me, I always need some time to sit, think, and concentrate.  Giving myself a Zen time by these methods of Zen meditation. I need to either treat myself or go jogging to clear my mind. 作为一个全球公民,你的生活可能是很忙,经常会在不同的城市中飞来飞去,买这买那,或是回故乡省亲,或是在自己的度假屋里住上一段时间。对于我来说,我总是需要一些时间坐下来,能聚焦思想,冷静思考, 这段时间中我需要静静地放空自己,通过这样的方法给自己一个禅的意境,来治疗我的思绪,  有时我也会用慢跑来整理我的思路。 888 tct_128 During this spring break of Japan trip, I enjoyed the Japanese way of Zen (In Chinese way “CHAN”). This way of life gives insight into my true self, or the emptiness of inherent existence, which liberates the way of living. 在日本旅行的这个春假,我很喜欢日本的Zen(禅宗)意境,Zen在中国即为“禅”。这种生活方式有助于深入了解真实的自我,放空自己,从而领悟而创造新的生命意义。 2 zen-symbol-with-enso-310x310 I understand what it means when less is more, and I’ve been inspired to simplify my life to only keep the minimum elements of daily life. Try to throw away 2 items to buy one. To have only quality things and resource. 我明白空灵的意境,少即是多。我也受到启发,简化我的生活,除了最基本的生活元素之外,在买一个之前至少扔掉两个。只保留品质最高的东西和资源。 1 I like the small and delicate Japanese philosophy, especially when I visited the king of Sushi, Jiro. Jiro’s dream of Sushi came true and has influenced many generations. Food must have its own essence and spirit. Once you try Jiro’s sushi, you never want to have California roll again. 我喜欢小而精致的日本哲学,尤其是当我参观了寿司之王次郎的寿司店。次郎的寿司梦想终于成真,并影响了几代人。食品本身也必须有自己的精髓之精神。一旦你尝试了次郎的寿司,你就永远不会希望再有加州卷了。 5 zen 01 life-changing-experience-ahead What a life changing experience my trip to Japan was. Life changing experiences surround you anytime, and anywhere. "life-changing experience ahead! Please fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the ride!" Giving your busy globalized lifestyle a Zen time. 多么美妙的一次日本之旅,那是生命改变的经验, 这种经验在你的生命中无处不在,随时随地你都可以经历和体验。 “前方就是改变生命的生活体验!请系好安全带,出发前行,享受生命之旅吧!” 给您忙碌的全球公民生活方式一些宁静的禅意时间。       angela-signature2-a-moved-out
