Zen Garden – How to Stay Focused – relaxdaily N°047
Zen Garden Music
Not only Steve Jobs learned to calm his mind through Zen practice. Mindfulness and reflection can help most individuals with personal growth and lead to a good life. Zen cannot be totally explained in words. Much of your grasp of Zen must necessarily depend on your own intuition. To describe Zen in a few words may be as follows: Zen is more of an attitude than a belief. Zen is the peace that comes from being one with an entity other than yourself. Zen means being aware of your oneness with the world and everything in it; living in the present and experiencing reality fully; being free of the distractions and illusory conflicts of the material world. Zen means being in the flow of the universe; experiencing fully the present, and delighting in the basic miracle of life itself.
A Zen Garden (also: Japanese rock garden) symbolizes the excitement and serenity that can instill a sense of grandeur and balance through the contemplation of stones and sculptures. It is believed that Zen meditation promotes relaxation.Your movements become serene, freeing the mind, giving inspiration and creativity. When contemplating a garden of Zen it is possible to feel a new kind of relaxation that allows you to draw upon the harmony and splendor in the heart and in mind.

This was quite a hard week. Probably it doesn’t interrest you, but I could only spend 15 hours for this, for me so important, relaxdaily project (I feel like I need 60 …) However, there’s a new track: N°047. It’s a really calming one with only short melodic sequences. The rest is a mix of peaceful flowing music and sounds, setting a relaxing ambience. Try to use it e.g. for meditation, relaxation, as music for work and studying, as spa and massage music… In the following weeks I myself want to learn how to create meaningful music with the (time) resoursses I got. Also, I’ll try to define for myself more clearly, what the music for this relaxdaily channel should be and what it shouldn’t be. This will help me creating with more confidence and focus, hopefully resulting in truly useful music for you.
Have a good week,
