“The main thing that supports military mindset is that there’s this idea of separation, that you’re different than me, your country is different than my country. And as a Zen monk, what we’re realizing is that we’re all the same, there’s no separation.”
This 10-minute documentary gives us a glimpse into the life path of Scott Mangis, a former US Marine who quit his corporate job and is now living as a Zen monk in Japan.
His insights on human condition and modern society will make you stop and think about why we place so much value on material possessions, and remind us how important it is to take even just a couple minutes a day to be still and meditate.
So go ahead, hit play, and be inspired.
