Zen is Understanding Yourself

Interesting teaching, I liked this part:
"Not understanding yourself is not understanding the truth. That is why there is fighting among ourselves. If all the people in the world understood themselves, they would attain the Absolute. Then the world would be at peace. World peace is Zen."

On Finding a Zen Teacher

Some good advice. I liked this part in particular:
"Sometimes you will feel intensely motivated to study and practice Zen. At other times it will fade out of your life to the point where you almost forget what you learned at all. ``Almost'' is the key word there. When you need it, you will be called back to it. It often takes some time to realize what you learned at all by just sitting and breathing. When it comes back, do not expect it to be the same, and do not expect to reach it the same way. Take it fresh and it grows deeper each time around."
