If you're interested in conscious living, then likely you're just as equally interested in Zen but simply not knowingly interested.

Usually Zen is associated with Japanese culture and religious or Buddhism practice, but true Zen (or at least the way this site uses the term) is emphasizing the value of conscious living.

Zen and conscious living come together and go hand-in-hand. Hence, conscious living without Zen is a huge oversight and vice-versa because these are not two.

"Conscious Flex: Zen & Conscious Living" is designed to offer a partnership of how these seemingly two are actually one movement.

Zen is the foundational spaciousness or presence from which conscious living derives. In the same manner that an artist, inventor or intuitive actions come from the stillness in the silence of non-movement.

In other words, Zen is a resting in the powerful space of not thinking about thought, not doing anything about doing, not trying to be the solver or understander, the knower collector but simply allowing the intelligence of life to flow through you and as you.

What is described can be thought of as meditation or accessing our intuition, but it's actually just natural living.

Often you will see kids in a natural resting space or presence and we tell them "snap out of it" because we think they are in "lala land" or "fantasy land" and not paying attention but actually they are simply being completely present with what is. It's natural to just rest and be, that's the flow from which insight and wisdom arises from.

Hence, conscious living is also the natural flow of how life organically expands upon itself. Consequently, conscious living is Zen living, when it's pure and without conceptual overlays.

  • What is Universal Knowledge?

    What is Universal Knowledge?
    When you are reading something for the first time, but it has that certain “ring of truth” to it, your thought says: “Oh I already knew that”. That is the thought and feeling of the universal knowledge that you already have within, yet within this knowledge at its purest form it steams from nowhere because this knowledge is the only true you. It is within the Being-ness that this pure untouched knowledge arises in its clearest form. I wrote an article about the “The State of Being & Who We Really Are” in which explains this in comprehensible terms.

    Once you get used to this “knowingness” then it becomes not as obvious. It is always there, but this universal knowledge only reveals itself when an opportunity shows up. In other words, to access it you need a reason for the answers to come to you. Just like, you have no use for your math skills unless a math problem shows up. As a result, instead of searching for answers to the questions you have about life, you are now searching for questions to answer.

    The ironic thing is that you can choose which direction you rather take because the universal knowledge is within you too. You do not have to have an ‘enlightened’ experience to gain access to this knowledge.

    It Only Takes Two Steps:
    1. You just have to know you have this universal knowledge already.

    2. Find a universal question to life that you always wanted to know and answer it as if you already know the answer. You will feel as if you are making it up at first, but if you trust yourself, then you will notice that it has a “ringing truth” to it and when you share it with others, they will also find a familiarity in your answer.
