Using mind-maps in Zen

Adopt mind maps (a tool in the I-System) and combine them with the skandhas and the six realms to get a better understanding of yourself.

Choose a question from one of the realms. like “What gives me pleasure?” Write in the middle of a blank page. 

Using Zazen or simple reflection, write about how that manifests in you. Unfiltered map. 

Repeat the next day. Over time, as you explore more questions and as you meditate on these issues, you will have a repository of maps that show your evolution in how you describe your reality.
