I must admit that I don't understand most of what people are talking about when they worry about this or that aspect of "Zen" or if they're enlightened or not enlightened.
For me Zen has always just been the freedom to go laughingly along my own outrageous way. I find this world extremely amusing. But I am also struck breathless, sometimes moved to tears, at least ten times every day by the sheer brilliant thereness of Reality.
It's shocking to be not a "mind" or a "body" but the naked and baseless awareness of This-Here-Now! Shocking and wonderful.
I know that nobody else sees it with my eyes any more than I can see with theirs, or has my experiences any more than I can have anybody else's! So it seems to me that "I" am just this Awareness-of-Being which is singular.
Once I realized the absolute singularity and incomprehensible self-nature of my baseless awareness, I relaxed and had a good laugh at every Zen book I'd ever read.
Sitting meditation seems beside the point; I need no ko-an to taste the immediacy of sensations; lengthy discourses and sutras bore me; I don't like people who sit around in black robes and lecture like Dr. Phil. So how is my innocent, direct, everyday life not Zen?
I am perfectly free to call it Zen. I am free to call it the Supreme Zen, if I like!
And as regards your own singular, incomprehensible and baseless awareness of being, you're free to do the same!
