“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait. Do not even wait, be quite still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”
—– Franz Kafka
“Just-sitting” in Zen practice is called shikan-taza. It doesn’t involve counting breaths, it doesn’t involve concentrating on koans: it’s, well, just sitting. What good is it? I don’t know. Just-try.
