What does it mean to be in a state of Zen?
When we are actively occupied in a task, such as writing and gardening, our complete focus and mind are in the job, we are in that meditative state of mind called Zen.
Have there been times when you are so immersed in work that you feel that you are in a form of meditative trance?
When I write, I experience this form of creative and imaginative state of meditation. Every poet when composing a piece of poetry enters a deep state of peace and calm as they visualize their inner world.
