Z is for Zen

Enlightenment and the idea of “Zen” are interrelated. The essence of Zen is that all human beings are Buddha, and that all they have to do is to discover that truth for themselves.

Zen is to be completely alive. It is sometimes called a religion and sometimes called a philosophy. Whichever the term; it simply doesn’t matter.

Zen tries to free the mind from the slavery of words and the constriction of logic. Zen is meditation.

Zen is the art of seeing into the nature of one’s own being, and it points the way from bondage to freedom.

And this is both beautiful and excellent.
