Zen meditation is plain and simple

Zen meditation is plain and simple. There are no goals, no magic, no transcendental bullshit experiences, no spiritual meaning-strictly speaking. For when you look for any of these things, you are missing the entire point of your practice: to let go.

When people are stressed they don't need to know any bullshit about chakras, or mental pictures, or being one with the Universe or God, or any of that stuff.

We just want peaceful sound of silence, so we have the ability for the mud of our fears and our attachments settle and see things clearly. Nothing has to be done; we must simply observe it pass.

There's a saying in Zen that says that real wisdom is not think about spirituality while peeling the potatoes, but merely peeling the potatoes.
