Zen is not a particular state but the normal state

Zen is not a particular state but the normal state: silent, peaceful, unagitated. In zazen, neither intention, analysis, specific effort nor imagination can take place. It’s enough just to be without hypocrisy, dogmatism, arrogance–embracing all opposites.

 “Do not think that the knowledge you presently possess is changeless, absolute truth. Avoid being narrow-minded and bound to present views. Truth is found in life and not merely in conceptual knowledge. Be ready to learn throughout your entire life and to observe reality in yourself and in the world at all times.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh

Truth is found in life and not merely in conceptual knowledge

 “Do not think that the knowledge you presently possess is changeless, absolute truth. Avoid being narrow-minded and bound to present views. Learn and practice non-attachment from your views in order to be open to receive other’s viewpoints. Truth is found in life and not merely in conceptual knowledge. Be ready to learn throughout your entire life and to observe reality in yourself and in the world at all times.”
