How can we experience the life energy of the universe?

We practice Zazen and as our mind becomes quiet, we note things which we were previously not aware of. The air is so important as it supports all life. Water and the sun give us strength and life energy. It is even more miraculous when we experience the Great Death (of the self) and realize the Truth which is imperishable. Then we can experience joy, because we know about the Mind which is free from birth and death. Although we see ourselves as people full of mistakes and wrong actions, when we open our heart to the Truth we become filled with love and deep wisdom - there is no greater joy.
