My Enduring Prayers--ZenMoon

My Enduring Prayers

I pray every night before I sleep. I pray for others and I pray for my own self-being. I pray for my Inner Light to grow brighter, so that I can self-illuminate my life path toward a Timeless Inner Peace. I pray that I would be reminded during the challenging times that there is no randomness in life.

I pray for my Inner Light to grow brighter, so that I can self-illuminate my life path 
toward a Timeless Inner Peace."


I pray for me to recognize each challenge as a learning opportunity and an opportunity to apply The Teaching in real time. The challenging times shall pass. I pray to have the wisdom and compassion to discerningly navigate me onward and forward benevolently from the challenges. I pray to live in the here and now, to wholly appreciate the good times, and to take nothing for granted. The good times too are not random but a product of some previous positive actions. The good times shall too pass. I pray for my inner peace remain steady during the ebb and flow that is life. Nothing of this life is enduring.

"I pray for my inner peace remain steady during the ebb and flow that is life."


Prayers are sacred and pure. Prayers are not meant for materialistic gains nor for one to cheat fate. Alas, I hear people praying for things beyond fate's control and beyond the context of the inevitable consequences.

"Prayers can help to enlighten and illuminate the path along The Way."


How can one pray to pick an apple from a lemon tree that he/she already planted? If it were me, I would pray for wisdom and a good lemonade recipe at the lemon harvest. Additionally, I would pray to recognize the lemon harvest as an opportunity to share my lemonade with the thirsty, so that the end result is realistic, beneficial, and benevolent. Just roll with it and go with whatever should come along the way, and always do pass it forward positively. Prayers can help to enlighten and illuminate the path along The Way.

In order to truly understand the root of our sufferings, we must recognize the nature of our own mind and how our response the outer world impact our life journey. We are the product of our own doings. We create our future circumstances with each choice we make, along the life path.

For most of us, the phrase “sitting in meditation” refers to the practice of physically sitting still and and re-focusing our attention to the present moment. Living with the true Zen meaning of sitting in meditation, we effortlessly exist at inner peace while at rest and while in motion. Within the true state of sitting in mediation, we live within the life stream at full awareness and adaptively respond to the life circumstances with our Inner Light and an universal compassion.

It is only when One recognise that both permanence and impermanence are confined within Karmic life’s innate duality, that One is ultimately set free from discriminating thoughts.

"Enlightenment is a absolute and unchanging state of being and awareness. One is either Enlightened or one is not Enlightened. There is nothing in gray confusions."

"Both our so-called luck and misfortune are the result of our Karmic doings. We will encounter whom we must to meet, until our Karmic entanglements are fully resolved. The Karmic world is a closed system and while inside it we shall not escape our own doings."
