Message from Henry: Zen and not-Zen

December 26, 2017

Are we paying attention… or not?

The difference between Zen and not-Zen is simply whether attention is being paid… or not. Are we paying attention, or are we not?

The difference between Zen and not-Zen is simply whether there is someone paying attention, or not. Is there someone, or is there no one?

Quantitative practice. Qualitative practice.

Zen of practice. Zen of principle.

But what about the difference between Zen and not-Zen?

******

10,000 hours? Is that all there is to it? Reach the magic number and all will be well?
