My Zen Path

Dear reader

This newsletter is special - MyZenPath has completed four years on 25th this month. It has been a wonderful journey and I have written a short post about it with inputs from few of its early members and contributors. Do have a look at it. 

The other article is about the book, Ikigai – The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life and it nicely connects some of the concepts that I have discussed here earlier, such as - Logotheraapy, Flow and in fact, Ikigai itself as a part of the article How to choose your career? Nevertheless, this book as well as the article looks at these concepts from a different perspective and I think the connected dots here are quite useful. What do you think?

What else would you like to see on My Zen Path? Do write back with your suggestions and feedback. Your inputs are always helpful.
