Monk: “What is the greatest obstacle to enlightenment?”
The Buddha: “Laziness!”

Zen for yet another first day of school.

The human mind treats a new idea the same way the body treats a strange protein; it rejects it.
—Peter B. Medwar

The artist has to look at everything as though he saw it for the first time; he has to look at life as he did when he was a child…. The first step towards creation is to see everything as it really is, and that demands a constant effort.
—Henri Matisse

You are already complete. You just don’t know it.
—Zen saying
