Mindfulness – A Path from US Marine to Zen Monk

From US Marine to Zen Monk from Krzysztof Gonciarz on Vimeo.

A gift from Krzysztof Gonciarz & Kasia Mecinski and their Tofu Media Productions. They recently spent some time with an American former Marine, Scott Mangis, who became a Zen monk in Japan. The response to there video echoes a common theme of listening to the heart. You may reflect on your own path as you listen to the narrative and insights on one man’s journey.

If a picture is worth a thousand words. An emotion is worth 10,000 pictures. This occurs when we listen with our hearts.

Dr. Mimi Guarneri MD, in her book: The Heart Speaks reminds us that “Each heart has its own biography, language, and method of revealing its truth, if we know how to listen.”

The Little Prince reminds us: It is with the heart that one sees rightly. For what is essential is invisible to the eye.
