Life is a riddle. Unfortunately, the answer’s not written on the back of anything.

Scripture, whether Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, or something else, points the way but cannot provide a direct answer. The thing is that each individual has their own unique answer. That answer is a state of being not something that can be written down. Zen uses koans which are manifestations of the riddle to help students find their answer. You work on your koan until you become one with the question. You continue working until you become the answer. So, be the question…and the answer.
