Above the saddle, no rider, Below the saddle, no horse.
~ Zen saying
Zen does not teach, it points.
~ D.T. Suzuki
Unify your attention. Do not listen with your ears but with your mind; do not listen with your mind but with your essence. The ears can’t do more than to listen, the mind cannot do more than to recognize. As for the essence, it is a void completely unengaged. The Way gathers only in the void.
