Awareness

You understand a joke spontaneously. Your perception of the humor usually is not analyzed or studied before you simple smile or laugh. No amount of explanation or intellectual analysis can explain to a person who does not have a sense of humor why the joke is funny. You get the joke or it escapes you, even if you fake the laugh you still haven’t got the joke.
In the same way you must experience the awakening of your awareness of your body and a Zen philosophy directly. You either get it or you do not. Stress release and wellness cannot be just learned. To be effective and positive life changing it must be experienced through your personal newly found awareness and practice. Zen perception of the now is anchored in spontaneity, simplicity and total awareness.
