I recently met a lovely French girl in Thailand who is a laughing yoga instructor. She is a lovely ball of joy. She recently posted this on her Facebook page and it really resonates with me.
If you could define what zen men means, I would say it is the following….
“There are people who are called “sun rays”.
Someone who is a “Ray of sunshine” is actually someone who falls on you when you don’t expect it.
You don’t need to have a lot in common with him.
This person is not especially smart, beautiful, rich, doesn’t have an amazing life, impressive projects, it’s just someone who picks you up when you’re on the floor, who brings you light when you thought you were going Stay in the dark forever.
He’s a special person, someone who doesn’t look like all the people you meet every day or all the people you know or have known.
He’s a completely different person, who doesn’t have his place in your life, but who walks through the door and makes you see things from another angle.
It’s someone who has a laugh that comes up and brings you up at the same time. It’s someone who gives another taste to all the insignificant little things in life.
It’s someone who lights up without doing it on purpose.
Who “Illuminates” the lives of others without necessarily succeeding in illuminating his own.
It’s someone who makes you feel like you’re really alive, even after you’ve been numb for years.
Someone you enjoy every breath of air, every meal, every feeling of cold, warm, fun, tingling.
Someone who helps you fly by keeping your feet on the ground.”
– James Bodhisattva –
I think for us women who haven’t found our true partner in life, we are looking for a man like this. When we can have someone who makes us feel this way, they become the reason we blossom. We transform and go through a total soul change. Once we know this, we can’t go back to the old ways. It is a permanent gift and a permanent lesson.
What’s even better is even if that zen man isn’t forever, we will never forget what it felt to laugh and to love. To be treated like the goddesses that we are. A zen man can be married to someone else and just observing his actions to his love inspires women. They set the bar higher for us and serve as a reminder that settling is never necessary.
We women sometimes get confused at how we can be attracted to someone that wouldn’t be the “norm.” It is the man who sees through us that needs to be nothing else but present. Zen men get this. They understand themselves and they understand women and how to treat them.
Running into men like this are priceless moments. We love and appreciate you. Some are zen men from birth but many mothers educated their sons on how to treat other people. It can be learned at any age. When you can master the art of being a zen man, you offer a gift to everyone in life. Isn’t it better than repelling beautiful people that you might have an incredible experience with?
I think some men believe they want to conquer women in some way but this is misguided and not really what you desire.
What kind of experience do you want to give to the world and how can you help people? You are more powerful than you realize.
