This is of not much meaning to zazen. If you had this experience after you started zazen, there may be some link. But zazen is not for this experience to come about. Zazen is about awakening to the wisdom which we have from the origin. When the mind becomes quiet in zazen, then the perception which has been busy until now with form and understanding, will awaken to the universal wisdom we all are endowed with.
