Be like Bankei - the zen master who preached being unborn. He belonged to no school or sect - he had his own individual unique zen.
Zen is LIFE - in the moment, the day to day, the mundane!
All the texts complicate it and seem like professors pontificating.
It's all simple - focus on having no preferences, concentrate on the present moment, focus on the inter-connectedness of all living things.
Know in your heart that you are not individual, separate from the world.
You are like a flower - sprouted from the Earth. You live on Earth, then you die and get absorbed. New people continually sprout up to continue the cycle of life.
