The Living Road: A Meditation Sequence

Milton Moon, Author Millennium Books (Au) $8.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-86429-008-0
Arguably the greatest lessons of Zen Buddhism are those of mindfulness and oneness: through a focus on mindlessness and the absence of body, practitioners can bring the inner and outer elements of self into harmony. Moon, a potter, here provides a sequence of meditation exercises that will help move students along the route from being too focused on the world around them to being clearly focused on the power and energy within themselves. Reminding us that the path to mindfulness is filled with struggle and that slow, careful attention to proper spiritual exercises starts one on the living road to unity, Moon's meditations smoothly transmit some of the clearest insights of the Zen masters; and his prose itself has the simplicity, clarity and elegance of a Zen koan.
