Mzansi is hurting. Mzansi is dancing. This land is a constant tumble of brilliance and disappointment, of beauty, courage and heartache. How do we live with all this? This is our life’s question, one we need to confront if our presence here is to have any meaning. The Way of Zen asks of us to look our situation in the eye; beyond our opinions, arguments and fears about it all, into things exactly as they are. It takes courage, it takes sincerity and it takes a great love. But this open-hearted awakeness allows us to step out of our separate corners into our natural connectedness, into our inherent oneness with this world and its people. From this intimacy, compassion and wisdom arise, and a generosity of spirit. Whatever we think of how the country is being run or where it is heading, this is our life. Let us live it fully. The author’s familiar and authoritative Zen style inspires us into taking up this life with both hands, calling us into an intimacy that is already beneath our feet.

About the Author:

Antony Osler is a long-term Zen practitioner and teacher in the lineage of Zen Master Dae Gak of Furnace Mountain. He is also a former Zen monk and human rights advocate. Anthony lives with his family on a farm in the Karoo region of South Africa.

Review:

'The word Zen means meditation, meditation means to wake up. Waking up means to open your eyes, your ears and your whole being. Then you can connect with the world you live in - you can dance with it, weep with it and heal it. You can find refuge in it or just walk tall with a heart as wide as the sky.' - Antony Osler.
