surfing or swimming in the ocean or just being near it.
Sometimese sitting out in the water I can feel what I am. At peace out there, it's traquility, my eyes seem to lie, and it looks like the world has a pink haze. I feel like I am floating. I feel like I am part of the most massive body we can touch. It can sweep you out for no apperant reason, it can kill me with a mighty wave, and it is so humbling, yet she gives you life and freedom and I don't think about my worldly problems. Just at peace with the origins of life.
Zen is more like state of being aware. Now this has a twist to it .Some say be more aware of your surroundings but when you are concentrating on something wholly then you are in state of zen.The more your conecentration the more you become less aware of everything else around you.Writing my poetry book was zen as one must merge with the universe and allow the universe to comminicate with you,through you. Some of my friends would at times would get angry with me as I would often get lost during a coversation and say sorry I havent heard a word of what you said I was lost in my book.
