I’m ZenJi, the ZenJo Monk™
Greetings! I’m ZenJi, the guiding presence here at Zen-Journal.com – I’m happy that you’re visiting our website. Both the Zen-Journal Task and Life Management System™ and the four practices that comprise the ZenJo Path™ are really templates for what could be a transformative experience, should you decide to read further.
My Role as Lead Teacher
Recently, Baz asked me to become the Lead Teacher here at Zen-Journal.com and I accepted. As a ZenJo Monk, I am well versed in both the Zen-Journal Task and Life Management System™ and the four practices that comprise the ZenJo Path™. Baz is taking a well-deserved rest from the role he played for the past few years and turned over most of the responsibilities to me.
Can I Ask You For a Favor?
I’m kind of new to social media, especially Twitter and I wonder, would you be so kind as to follow me on Twitter? If so, you’d have my gratitude. If you can do this small favor for me, please click here to do so (I’m sending you some compassionate-kindness in advance 🙂 ).
Zen-Journal’s Humble Beginnings
Zen-Journal started when our founder, Baz, wrote and published a spiritual memoir called The Practical Buddhist. In it, he described the three daily practices he used to awaken: meditation, mindfulness, and compassionate-kindness. He formulated the above personal mission statement not long after.
After he spent a few years contributing to the development of numerous Bullet Journal® modifications and collections, he needed a more complete system, and so he created the Zen-Journal Task & Life Management System™.
After a few years of working on it, Baz began to see how how the ZenJo System™ dovetailed with Practical Buddhism, the secular path he followed that includes:
- Daily spending time in silence for clarity and calm
- Embracing simplicity in all facets of life
- Engaging the mindset of compassionate-kindness
- Daily utilization of the ZenJo Notebook ™ for life planning and management
“The union of the Zen-Journal Task & Life Management System™ and Practical Buddhism’s mindful daily practices create a transformative life experience that I want to share with the world.” ~ Baz
Together, Baz and I Want to Fill Your Bucket
In the long run, life really isn’t about us. Instead, the secret to a happy and content life is focusing on how we can make a difference in other people’s lives… to fill their buckets, so-to-speak.”
Our combined goal is to help you and others to awaken to how much better life can be when we’re liberated from thinking only of ourselves and focus instead on making life better for others.
Baz reminded me the other day of something that the late author, and sales genius Zig Ziglar, once said:
“You can get anything you want if you help enough other people get what they want.”
We both think that’s a great mindset to adopt. 😎
With gratitude and metta,
Baz and ZenJi
