“Sitting quietly, doing nothing, the spring comes and the grass grows by itself.” Pearls before swine. A monk is told to take a stone to the vegetable market, the gold market and to some jewelers. At the vegetable market he is offered a few cents, at the gold market he is offered many thousands of dollars while at the jewelers he is offered hundreds of thousands of dollars, and the price is increased when he refuses to sell. The value of a product is in the eye of the beholder. Become a ‘jeweler’ to perceive the value of meditation.
The ego is the controller. When the ego is no longer there then who are you? You are perfectly natural. When the ego disappears then the other disappears too and you can get close to another person for the first time.
Zen and Sufism are opposites. Meditation is the path of emptiness which leads to love. In Buddhism there is no concept of God. Sufism is the path of love and hence there has to be a God. Love leads to emptiness.
