I’m confused. I’m trying to find my own understanding of what path to take with my life, but I have too much going on in my mind. My past experiences keep me from ever fully focusing on the next step towards achieving a bit of enlightenment.
I asked my father for a word of advice, and he told me to empty my mind. He said if I can do that, I’ll get a moment of serenity in my mind, and I’ll get my enlightenment. Everything should make sense afterwards.
I don’t know how to empty my mind. I’m not a Zen Buddhist or anything, so this isn’t my area of expertise. I’m not really looking to read into a book about all this, I really just need a few words from the wise, about the trick, and maybe the philosophy behind the empty mind. (ex. Zen, Budo, etc.)
My dad practices Kendo, and he lives this kind of stuff. All he told me about was meditation. He said that at some extent, if I can clear my mind like this, I’d receive some sort of enlightenment. (From God or something?)
Little help please?
