I am taking this moment to say Thank You to all who have read my blogs. My A to Z Challenge for this year has come to an end and it is back to the Back Forty and my garden. T.S. Elliot wrote:
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
It may be easier to say what Zen is not. "Zen is not a theory, an idea, or a piece of knowledge. It is not a belief, a dogma, or religion." From What is Zen on Zen--buddhism.net.
