The Master was in his Zen meditation position as he told Chester, "Zen is a
special blended religion that holds the best of Taoism and Buddhism. It is pure
enlightenment experience and transcends logic and thought."
Chester mused, "I'd like get started on the path to enlightenment. How do I do that?"
The Master paused, "Do you hear the water tumbling over the rocks in this stream?"
Chester nodded yes.
The Master whispered, "Enter there."
Chester complained, "Please I need more than that."
The Master pointed to his head. "Zen is not a thought it is an experience one has with oneself beyond all . . . When you achieve awareness in perfect balance you are Zen . . . When you have become the true way you will have knowing and you will discover vast and boundless bliss!"
Chester spluttered. His logical mind was straining to follow the Masters words.
The Master shook his head. "Meditate and you will discover, think and you will never find."
