Zazen can be considered as the practice of ‘being’. Sitting, doing nothing, we reveal ourselves to ourselves. We reveal the no-separation between us and life itself. We reveal the paradox of constant change. We reveal the impossibility of not being this moment, of not being ourselves. Robert Rosenbaum, in ‘Zen and the Heart of Psychotherapy’ puts it this way: “practicing Zazen we practice just being alive and just dying; these are the basic activities of being human, the rest is superstructure. Discovering that ultimately there is nothing between our selves and our experience”.
