Zen is more than a mysterious secret
of ancient Oriental mysticism.
It is of contemporary interest worldwide.
Can you imagine zen without knowing
or really understanding
what it is supposed to be ?
It need not be learned --
we are zen already
if we let go of things we cling to --
we may be left alone with ourselves
in a zen state --
in the clearest reflection
of our being.
Zen gives us permission
to simply exist.
Yes, a form of existentialism --
contemporary and universal
and, like good secrets, intrinsic.
Zen -- is your secret magic.
