Zen Won't Solve Your Problems

suffering wisdom zen

I often hear people starting Zen practice to solve their life problems, and even if they solve a few, a few others will to their place. I talk about this in my new book No-Nonsense Zen for Beginners.

"When I first started practicing Zen, I was hoping Zen could solve all of my problems. I realized later that we will always have difficulties in our lives. The thing we do have control over is how we relate to those occurrences. Do we shut down and fall into despair, fear, or anger? Or can we rely on our innate clarity and strength so we can clearly see the truth in this moment and respond? Rather than looking at difficulties in life as “problems”, we can see them for what they are so we can respond to them accordingly."
