Islands of Ease in chaos of life

Leo Babauta is a blogger who regularly posts about productivity and related items at his Zen Habits blog (http://www.zenhabits.net). Leo is also a practioner of Zen Buddhism and the blog blends this Eastern practice into some very helpful insights about being productive and maintaining a sense of peace while doing so. He recently welcomed a guest poster, Mary Jaksch/GoodlifeZEN blog -- and another Zen practitioner -- who writes on how to maintain "islands of ease" among the chaos of daily life. I don't share their religion, of course, but I do recommend the articles. A more Christocentric practice, but one along the same lines, is the Jesus Prayer: "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy on me a sinner." Very powerful; highly recommended.
