Zen Buddhism does not pervade the cosmos.
It presents the universal, but as a particular teaching.
Confusing the specific teaching with its vast and undifferentiated subject, is a trap which has caught several tigers.
— Aitken Roshi, Zen Master
Hold no story.
Not even a Zen one.
Especially not a Zen one.
It will get in between you and the truth of who you are.
You are not a hair's breadth apart from the ultimate truth.
