Zen Inspiration

The origin of Zen – The Buddha is said to have given a “silent sermon”, he held up a flower and gazed at it, after a while, a monk called Mahakasyapa, began to smile. He is said to have been the only one who had understood the sermon. According to legend, that smile (that is to say, realisation) was handed down by twenty-eight successive masters and later became the origin of Zen. Be inspired through Zen:

“A follower of the way has neither form nor shape, neither root nor trunk; nor dwelling place; like a fish leaping in the water.” – Rachel Danson

“All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness.” – Osho

I was born and live in rural North Wales (UK) and found poetry again after a lifetime, so grateful I did :)
