NOW & ZEN WEEKLY UPDATE
MON 23 September - SUN 29 septmeber 2019
“The word ‘recovery’, according to the dictionary, means regaining something that was either stolen or lost. From a spiritual point of view, what you are actually recovering is your perception of something that you already possess. The thief is yourself, disabling you from seeing what you already possess.” — Zen Master Wu Kwang
