Raven 160: Zazen

Zazen is practice. It's not a practice. Nor, for that matter, is it the practice. It's just practice. Your zazen is your practice. You do it because you can't not. It's what you do. What mushrooms do is mushrooms' zazen/practice. What dirt does is dirt's zazen/practice.

The next evening Gray Wolf attended the circle gathering again and asked, "After all, what is zazen?"
Raven said, "Animal practice."
Gray Wolf said, "Of course it's animal practice; I wouldn't suppose that stones and trees do it."
Raven said, "That would be the zazen of stones and trees."
