Is Zen Ambivalent to Meditation?
Here’s another essay I found in my file of unused essays. I’m not sure when I wrote this. It must have been a long time ago because I don’t even remember doing an AMA on Reddit! But I must have because I wrote about it. In any case, I think the message of this essay […]
