Zen does not teach anything special, only how to liberate yourself from this small state of mind. Because you add on thoughts to what you perceive, you become slave to the outside, not even noticing it. At this point, use your own awareness to cut the distractions of judging and naming, returning your awareness to only here and now. Let that mind ripen until there is nothing to search for anymore. This purified mind becomes like a magnet, pulling everything what you need towards you. Your mind does not need to go out anymore, entrusting to the ways of the heavens, experiencing the joy of being human.
