Zen is all about experience. Zazen is the form of training that can open this path. But this experience has been with us since we were born. It is to awaken again to that pure state of mind before any learning or knowledge. Because of our gathered knowledge and experiences do differences between people appear. That is why it is important to once let go of the gathered knowledge, and receiving this moment from that pure state of mind. From there the view of 7 billion people cannot differ. Everyone feels the importance of awakening to this mind which can be the base for true peace. That is why it is important to use the right information that can lead you on this way.
