About this title


Reverend Master Meiten's first book is a precious offering of profound, and at times deceptively simple, reflections on the meaning and purpose of life. Read this book with your heart. In her opening chapter, Rev. Meiten writes: "The first discipline enters with dignity and simplicity: we must be willing to stop, pause, and look at our priorities as they are expressed in how we occupy ourselves in our daily lives...." This down-to-earth, practical approach is the hallmark of her teaching. So many of us, especially in the Western world of the 21st century, take the time to "stop, pause, and look at our priorities" only within the context of an endless "to do" list, never pausing to reflect upon the broader purpose of life. Each chapter in her book encourages deeper contemplation, helping us to "seek the Kingdom within." Rev. Meiten's writings resonate with the rich experience of her many years of spiritual practice. As a result, the teachings have taken on her own particular flavor, while at the same time respecting the deep roots of Soto Zen, founded in Japan by Dogen Zenji over 800 years ago. Through these writings, Rev. Meiten shares the distilled essence of her spiritual training and commitment to find a spiritual solution to suffering. The heart of Soto Zen is to "simply sit with awareness." Buddhism teaches that meditation is the path that shows us the way to return to our "natural state." Rev. Meiten's book is a wonderful inspiration to help us take the next steps on our journey, whether we have already traveled far and wide in our spiritual pursuits or are just beginning the adventure. The way is open to all, without exception, as she says in her final chapter: "All of us can return to our True Home."
