vertical line I was distracted by an orange wisp of a cloud in the sky. What were you saying?

Ah, it's gone now. I wanted to look closer, but it seems it didn't want me to, or didn't care to be there anymore.

vertical line To meditate UNconcentrate.  DISPERSE the mind.

Better yet forget the whole thing!

Forget you ever heard of Zen or Buddhism or meditation.  Forget you ever heard of right or wrong, inside or outside, life or death.  If you never heard of them where would they be found to be referred to DIRECTLY?  But still, at that point, what is there that you can refer to directly anyhow?
