Comment About Zen

A lot gets said about Zen's zaniness, Zen's paradoxes, Zen's inscrutability. By and large these attributes have served as marketing tools. But where do those wacky attributes come from? Sitting in meditation, bowing in meditation, chanting in meditation the appearances of weird Zen diminish and vanish. Zen was just ordinary life all along. Perhaps the inscrutable was ordinary as well.
