The ZazenLife Mission Statement

We designed ZazenLife.com with the intention of developing a loyal growing community of readers and writers who are interested in improving themselves and their lives in every way possible.

This site will provide resources and valuable information to help guide everyone to get on the right path in their own unique lives. We hope to build constructive discussions about controversial and impossible to answer questions with input from the entire community which will in turn help each of us build a better understanding of life.

After reading some of our entries, you might begin to question everything in your belief system. This is perfectly normal and an essential part to growing and developing as a human being. Life is one giant experience, and it is meant to be as enjoyable and fun as possible. Removing negativity and insecurity from your mental approach to life can yield great benefits. We invite you to tap into the universal frequency of positivity that we all have divine access to. We invite you to also realize how incredibly bizarre and truly amazing this life is! icon smile The ZazenLife Mission Statement

If you do truly want to change your life and understand the true potential each of us have, you will find the all the necessary tools and skills within this community to make that intention a reality. We focus on having an open opinion about everything and formulating our own beliefs through knowledge and understanding. Taking the time with this knowledge to evaluate yourself may yield some beneficial and helpful results.

We are a completely open community meaning everyone’s opinions are valued equally and respectfully. Instead of verbally attacking people for conflicting viewpoints, we propose our own theory and accept the fact that not everyone is going to agree with us. Once you get past the fact that your egotistical values no longer have to control you, it is much easier to create constructive opinions by taking everyone’s input into consideration.

Life has too many questions still to be answered and we have grown as a culture to not address the more important aspects of what we are really evolving towards. As a majority we focus too much on problems rather than solutions. We dwell on past mistakes and have trouble leaving them in the past because we are unhappy with our results so far. Results only will happen with consistent focused effort toward making life more easier and enjoyable for you. We are all instinctively trying to survive and evolve for a certain reason that has yet to be determined. It may very well never be completely determined but the only thing that has been determined is you can do absolutely anything you want with your life. The only restrictions you have is what you already believe. If you don’t believe its possible you will constantly put up roadblocks for yourself on the road towards creating a difference.

Knowledge is infectious, and it spreads rapidly throughout a community when it is 100% beneficial for everyone. As each member gains knowledge and understanding, it spreads like a web everyone can catch onto and learn from. The rate at which it spreads is determined by the effort of the community as a whole. Each contribution, no matter how small it is perceived to be, makes a difference towards building an infinitely large pool of value for everyone to share.

Along with working toward developing a strong empowering belief system, we intend to provide information and discussion about certain topics that a lot of us are mutually interested in. The span of topics we will provide information and discussion on doesn’t have any restrictions. If you enjoy doing something, and are interested in certain subjects, chances are other members are as well. Maybe you might find a new interest you previously dismissed because you didn’t understand anything about it. You now have the opportunity to build relationships with people who are willing to help you find out anything you desire to know.

We would like everyone to have the opportunity to provide blogging content for this site. If you are interested in contributing to our blog community, and think you can creatively express yourself through your writing, we are asking that you submit a sample of your work for consideration. Creativity doesn’t have any limits or restrictions because being creative means you are expressing yourself in a way that no one else ever has. Knowing this, if your writing is unique, well developed, and can provide valuable information for other members of this community, we urge you to take the opportunity to submit your work.

If you would like to contribute material for this site, please contact our team of bloggers and we will publish your work provided it contains valuable material that everyone can use. If we think your writing is something the community could use for future developments, we will provide opportunities for members to be full-time writers or part-time contributors with a generous compensation package. When you create and distribute value for others, you receive an abundance of value in return for your efforts.

We hope you enjoy our site, and feel free to suggest anything you feel could benefit our strong, growing community of uniquely talented individuals.

    Looks like an interesting site you have going here – I look forward to future posts. Thanks for dropping by my site and the follows. Sharing our various perspectives on life and what it is all about helps us all discover not only what appears to be the outside world, but most importantly helps us to discover ourselves.

  11. barb fleming says:

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. I enjoy what I have read here on this community blog. Its premise is one I can easily find myself embracing. I may be contacting your team to submit a few samples. Some days I really long to have someone to share thoughts with after all these years of keeping it all within. The most exciting part for me is realizing that my insight is not unique but that it creates an instant bond with anyone who may have shared either the process or a bit of wisdom that comes with the effort.

  12. inspiredhealthcoach says:

    I stopped by to check out your sight and thank you for following my blog but found myself absorbed and intrigued by yours!
    Good stuff…

    I’ve read through your blog and found it most interesting. Although I’ve never done drugs, even a joint, yes really! I do believe that we as humans do have a tendency to make mountains out of molehills. I once worked with a doctor that said, “The human race would be better off if we just infused the water with Prozac.” Enough said.

    Personal mantra, “We are all one people, one race, human.” If we could learn to live as one people and one race, we’d be much better off. I have a dream and I will continue to work this dream until I’m no longer on this heavenly planet.

    You don’t have to do much to help another; a smile and something as simple as saying something like, “Hi! How are you today?” can go a long, long way.

    Never give up hope on someone. Hope may be the only thing they have left.

  14. Have come to check out what you have to say after you (thank you very much!) started following my blog. :)

    Thanks for liking my two posts, “The Christmas that Almost Wasn’t” and “This Christmas.”
    I must tell you that “This Christmas” has been wonderful so far! Having the entire family together for the first time in 12 years brought us all to tears of joy and much laughter!
    Today we spend Christmas brunch at daughter’s house and watch the baby open her gifts from Santa, then spend the evening feasting again.

    Life is good!
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!
    Suzannesan

  19. Thank you for following my blog recently. I’m intrigued by what I’ve seen here and will explore your site more thoroughly when I have the time-it’s Christmas, you know.

    I appreciate your following my blog. It can often feel like you are blogging into a black hole. I had to laugh when I saw zazen in the title of your website. No wonder you liked what I had written! I would not presume to say that what I experienced was a mini-satori, (you know, a mini-satori is when you are there only long enough to think “What the hell was that!” and then it’s over.) but, generally speaking, I am very much influenced by Zen Buddhism, and have found Zen to be my safe haven of sanity whenever I am stressed out or just full of myself. I am not a practicing Zen Buddhist, I don’t do zazen, but whenever I start to philosophize with my pen, I always gravitate towards a Buddhist perspective unless I’m in a frisky mood and just want to mess with people’s heads.

  22. Thanks for following Anti-Film School! We are glad to have you, but we apologize in advance for the missing reels, sticky floors, and broken seats. Enjoy the show.

    Thanks for following my blog. The feeling’s mutual …

  24. scillagrace says:

    Thanks for subscribing to my blog. I’m not a team, just an individual, but I am paddling my canoe towards greater awareness and re-thinking a lot of long-held dogmas. It’s comforting to know I’m not alone.

  25. Impressive statement. I appreciate your initiative. Wish you success with your blog – the first month “anniversary” is impressive!

    Those are some true words. Positivity is what I represent, so I like coming across blogs like this.

  30. creeped says:

    What an intriguing site!

  31. Pat Cegan says:

    Interesting blog you have here. I look forward to exploring it more. Thank you for subscribing to Source of Inspiration. Hugs, pat

  32. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  33. Verle says:

    There are no words to descirbe how bodacious this is.

  34. Enjoyed looking at this, very good stuff, appreciate it.
