Jack Li̘

 

I have two articles entitled Zen Meditation and Dreams and three poems (The Life Phase, Time, and The Forgotten Forest) by my deceased friend Jack Li.  Jack wrote these articles and poems in 1989 for my journal Mundus Novus.  Jack passed away on April 8, 1994.

 

Mundus Novus (meaning new world) was a science-oriented futuristic journal  in Northern California, that I published for two years from 1988, as the publication of Nova Bookstore, in Sunnyvale of California in the U.S.

 

Jack seldom wrote anything about spiritual matters. He always thought there were others who had already written what needed to be written on these topics. He believed in practicing spiritually as his private matter.  He wrote these two articles at my request.

 

The reason that meditation article is called ZEN meditation, is not because of any religious reason. The reason was that Jack believed that one needed to stick with one tradition of meditation, to be able to do it properly, and he had chosen Zen, although he came from a Christian family.  Jack had worked with Krishnamurti and Shunryu Suzuki, whom he highly respected.

 

For Jack, the school of meditation itself was nothing but a tool, a tool that could be used in one's journey to achieve self-consciousness.

 

If there are any questions about his articles and poems, I am afraid that I may not be able to answer. The reader may want to consult the books that jack had recommended at the end of the articles, or may want to post questions or comments at public forums, and some people may be able to discuss them.
