We practice ZEN, MEDITATION, MINDFULNESS or any form of concentration or prayer to attain more inner peace. These are practices made by different religions and traaditions over thousands of years to bring peace to human beings. We learn to go to a quiet space and try to calm our mind or focus on an idea, chant some verses or do acts of prayers to reach the calm we need, so we can go back and face our hectic life again.
There is a different way of attaining peace by turing our daily life into our ongoing ZEN, MINDFULNESS,MEDITATION or PRAYER practice. Our life is our actual sanctuary, not the quiet corner we find as refuge. This is a different perspective that may not be easy to grasp at first, but once cleared in our mind, we can see our life as our destination of peace and the activities of daily life as our ZEN PRACTICES.
