« The message of this book is that we are traveling down the path to nowhere precisely because we imagine a distant nirvana without realizing that it is already present. It is delusion that blinds us, and because we are blinded we lust for more, never realizing that the more that we seek is already ours. »
The writer describes Zen as a meditation, « a psycho-spiritual discipline that builds a genuine grasp of who you really are, rewires your brain to enhance compassion and intelligence, and diminishes the part of your brain responsible for fear. After some time the practice of Zen can bring you : happiness, solidity, intelligence, health, lack of fear, anxiety and stress.
