WORDS OF WISDOM FROM ZEN
If you want to understand ZEN easily, just be mindless, wherever you are, twenty-four hours a day, until you spontaneously merge with the WAY. This is what an ancient worthy called " The mind not touching things, the step placed anywhere."

Take long walks in stormy weather or through deep snows in the fields and woods, if you would keep your spirits up. Deal with brute nature. Be cold and hungry and weary.
Henry David Thoreau
A nameless bird
in the wintry blast.

Seriousness is the only refuge of the shallow.
