Zen is mostly meditation, and more meditation, where you can watch your own mind, your own thoughts, and finally, stay separate from them, and separate also from your own unbidden parade of emotions that swing by with tooting horns and crashing symbols and clacking drums and gawking dancing clowns. A laudable goal. But on the whole, how many people who do this wind up becoming passive? That’s the thing. People tend to opt for quietness. -Jon Rappoport #wheresthefire?
