Check out this new blog www.calizen.net!

CALIZEN simply represents a merging of materialism (California) and spirituality (Zen), which have been conflicting forces throughout history. In the east, spiritual obsession and asceticism has been predominantly pursued in hopes of a more pure existence; in the west, indulgence in worldly pleasures seems to be a top priority and sought by the masses. Both extremes are wrong and have been the cause of much suffering. There is a middle road, to walk the razors edge between materialism and spirituality. Let us be in touch with our true nature, our spiritual being and our purpose in life, but let us also enjoy the various comforts that life brings without attachment or dependence.
