vertical line It seems billions of people are thinking about God everyday every minute. Even the most powerful thinkers that ever lived and living God remains a mystery to them. They are not only thinking about God but studying seriously about God and then they teach people to believe in God. The even know about universal consciousness and emptiness and different dimentions of existence. But in spite of all these God remains a mystery.

Comparatively to the thinkers there are very few who practice Zen. They are only concerned with breath awareness, breath in breath out. And facing a blank wall.But some of them has stated and confirmed that they have seen God. God became real to them. No longer a mystery.

So what is the secret?

You asked for what the secret is ...
Now you want more ... take take take ... can't you do anything else ....
You're no better than all those hordes of people asking God for something
That's why he never answers.

vertical line Enumeration - God is not 1 numerically, God is 0 indivisibily, and then not some. How's that? Here's another one: the whole world is the symbol of God, so I prayed to God to rid me of God and it worked for God.

vertical line God is very Zen - beyond all duality and all distinction between subject and object. It's no secret, it's a real mystery.
