Zen is a way of liberation, concerned not with discovering what is good or bad or advantageous, but what is.
~ Alan Watts
If you understand, things are just as they are; if you do not understand, things are just as they are.
~ Zen Saying
If you want to know something, go elsewhere. If you want to un-know everything, then sit and listen.
The silence inside of you is the sound of your knowledge collapsing. Remember, it is you who said, "I want to be free."
Life is thus
Death is thus
Verse or no verse
What's the fuss?
~ Dahui Zonggao
It's logical; if you're not going anywhere any road is the right one.
I never get lost, because I don't know where I am going (c'est vrai lol!).
If one is not
Trying to get to some place,
One cannot become lost.
" Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home."
I confess that there is nothing to teach: no religion, no science, no body of information which will lead your mind back to the Tao. Today I speak in this fashion, tomorrow in another, but always the Integral Way is beyond words and beyond mind. Simply be aware of the oneness of things.
~ Hua Hu Ching
The whole point of Zen is to suspend the rules we have superimposed on things and to see the world as it is.
~ Alan Watts
