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.
