Zen is an unproject, a nonproject. Zen is not about striving to get somewhere else. It's about being right here. Zen is not about being someone else — someone more peaceful and wise, someone happier and more together. It's about being ourselves, exactly as we are right now. Zen is not about becoming a buddha but about realizing our inherent buddhahood. This is the good news of Zen. We already are buddhas. Things are OK right now.
