Obama and zen for me

Thinking of Michelle Obama's comment that "for Barack, success is not about how much money you make. It's the difference you make in people's lives!"

How congruent that thinking is with mine. Naikan method.

naikan zen method
contemplating 3 questions

1. What did this person do for you? all the concrete things, their worries,      pleasures..
2. What did you do for this person?
3. What trouble and worries did you cause them?

from Mom to current people in one's life.. to strangers.. the bus driver...

"The point is... someone cared for us or we would not have survived." -Brazier, Zen Therapy
