What does Zen have to offer me?
That’s a question you rarely hear spoken aloud in Zen circles, though it might have crossed your mind once or twice — at least before beginning your own study, or when someone else asks you about it, or perhaps at some point when you’ve considered dropping it.
It might sound crass and self-centered, but it’s a fair question. And even if you haven’t asked it out loud, you probably have your own answer(s). Those answers, no matter how conscious and clear, are shaping your expectations — and your practice itself. How are they working for you?
Maybe you’d like to ask someone else, but . . . who you gonna ask?
