It's okay not to look for the meaning of life

a Zen monk's guide to living stress-free one day at a time
Jikisai Minami ; translated by Makiko Itoh
Book - 2023

"Zen monk Jikisai Minami takes the things we are supposed to strive for and turns them on their head. The [38] short, thought-provoking essays in this book are divided into four chapters about our sense of self, our hopes and dreams, our personal relationships and how to face death. Each essay begins with a deliberately controversial point of view to help us look at life's problems through fresh eyes."--Amazon.com
