ZEN
by WPR
Virginia

What do you know?

  • I am the experiencer of my experience.
  • My existence is temporary.
  • There is more to life than what appears to my five senses.
  • There is a Creator. (I didn’t create myself)
  • I know there’s a lot that I don’t know.

Of course a Zen Master might then say:

-Who’s the experienced?

-What existence?

-What more are you talking about

-What Creator?

-What is life?

-What’s more to know?

Of course, none of these questions can be answered.  To be a Zen Master, you must be able to ask questions for which there are no answers.

That is Zen!
