The ultimate Truth is beyond words. Doctrines are words. They're not the Way. The Way is wordless. Words are illusions. They're no different from things that appear in your dreams at night, be they palaces or carriages, forested parks or lakeside dandelions. Don't conceive any delight for such things. They're all cradles of rebirth. Keep this in mind when you approach death.

Don't cling to appearances, and you'll break through all barriers. A moment's hesitation and you'll be under the spell of devils. Your real body is pure and impervious. But because of delusions you're unaware of it. And because of this you suffer karma in vain. Wherever you find delight, you find bondage. But once you awaken to your original body and mind, you're no longer bound by attachments.

[an excerpt from The Zen Teaching of Bodhidharma, translated by Red Pine]

But people of the deepest understanding look within, distracted by nothing. Since a clear mind is the Buddha, they attain the understanding of a Buddha without using the mind.

Not thinking about anything is Zen. Once you know this - walking, sitting, or lying down - everything you do is Zen.
