The monk who ran 1,000 marathons has nothing on us—except he knows it

“All humans are asking the question: Why are we alive?” says the monk of Mount Hiei in Japan who endured 1,000 days of long-distance running as a rigorous quest for enlightenment. “The constant movement for 1,000 days gives you lots of time to think about this, to reflect on your life. It is a type of meditation through movement.” His conclusion? Life is a process. Exploring, discovering, learning never stops. To each his own path. Forget about the destination. It is all about the journey. Enlightenment is present in every step searching for it. So lace up your shoes and go for a run.
