Zen and the City, a visual guide for mindful urban living
Walking through the city, open your hearing to all of the sounds.
Embrace all the sounds of the city at once.
Let them flow through you while you stay silent from within.
What does it mean to stay silent from within?
Stop picking or choosing the sounds, being pulled toward them or away from them.
Stop liking and disliking what you hear.
Stop categorizing and analyzing.
Stop dealing with the sounds and just listen.
