Zen: The Art of Doing Nothing

Many contemplative practices teach us techniques to help us concentrate, deal with unpleasant emotional states, or even induce an Awakening experience such as kensho. Not Zen. Zen points directly to the Mind; it's an unmediated path to your (and all beings') true nature. Since Enlightenment is our native, unconditioned state, we don't have to do anything to 'get' it. Instead, all we have to do is STOP obstructing ourselves. When we STOP everything, our true nature emerges naturally.
