Zen Master Seung Sahn - Zen Stick Swallows Universe

Sort of like a Zen advice column, here's part of the answer to the question, "What is the best way to put it all down?":

But originally we don't have I-my-me. When you were born did you have a plan? Did you say to your mother, 'I am coming into the world and I want to try such and such... please help me.' You didn't say that. You only came into this world and... WHAAAAA! So why did you appear in this world? If you don't understand that, then you will have a problem. No direction, no reason, no condition, nothing... only come into this world. That creates a problem.
