Notes on Contemporary Zen

Some somewhat scattered but valuable thoughts on modern practice:

"Zen cannot be taught as there is no thing to teach. Zen can be learned. Learning can be facilitated by others, both living and dead. However, in the end, the responsibility is on the learner."

I dismount from my horse and drink your wine.
I ask where you're going
You say you are a failure
and want to hibernate at the foot
of Deep South Mountain
Once you're gone no one will ask
about you
There are endless white clouds on
the mountain.
