Meditating your way home

by Bob Schwartz

I write a little about Zen, but not much. There are so many more who write about it, more experienced, able and articulate, that I am humiliated into quiet. Besides, I don’t really know what to say.

What I will say today is that Zen sitting, like all earnest meditation, is a way home, to a home you didn’t know you had. That is not a feeling or belief, just a fact. All the places that have been or are home for you are real and really yours. But the one that is really, really yours, underneath all these others, is the one that you in-habit when you meditate. Welcome home.
