a state of magical simplicity

.
.
To practice Zen means to realize one's existence 
moment after moment,
 rather than letting life unravel in regret of the past 
and daydreaming of the future.
 .
To "rest in the present"
 is a state of magical simplicity, 
although attainment of this state is not as simple as it sounds.
