How to Live Like a Zen Monk - Great Central Sun - 11-26-2019

I'm not looking to join a Buddhist monastery, at least not anytime soon.
I have too many debts.

But I found this informative site about how to live like a Zen monk.

1. Do one thing
2. Do each thing with all of your being

3. Work diligently to let go of hang ups and nurture true well-being

4. Simplify your life down to the essentials

5. Monitor mental nutriment

6. Establish order

7. Live as if you’re going to die

8. Express yourself artistically

9. Live the Buddha’s middle way

10. Practice Zazen diligently

11. Serve others

Hey Indigo!

Hear you on the debts!! ah!

But love love love this post.
I was deep into the study of Buddhist (particularly Zen) and Hindu scripture when the Ra Material found me. Of course in my opinion it’s the best Zen scripture ever transcribed. Everything in Zen is Master to student student to Master, and when read like that, well I’m sure you know, The Law of One blows The top off! Hahaha!!

Great Post!!

Sending Light and Love!
Namaste

Bro...f*** debts.
You think they're gonna find indigogeminibuddha?
I don't pay debts.
I let them sit there n just tell them I don't want to pay.
They are just catalyst from my perspective...like expectation the system has put on me that I don't accept as my reality.
I don't pay them...get bad credit...then don't use credit.
The universe ain't gonna stop.
I'm not gonna die.
If anything...it shows me that now I'm forced to live outside of it.
It's a blessing.
Edit
I'm speaking of corporations and banks etc.
I feel its important to pay debts to real people
