The true purpose of Zen is to see things as they are, to observe things as they are, and to let everything go as it goes. Zen practice is to open up our small mind.
You should rather be grateful for the weeds you have in your mind, because eventually they will enrich your practice.
There are, strictly speaking, no enlightened people, there is only enlightened activity.
— Shunryu Suzuki 1904 – 1971
