The wind shaking the leaves.

I wonder what the tree feels.

All this wordy, lengthy writing about zen is not zen.  To capture the essence of zen in words is like trying to catch the wind or attempting to out race your shadow.  Turn off mind – and simply be.

Want to catch your shadow?  Simply stop running and sit down in the shade of a tree.  Your shadow is gone.
