the last stage of simplification

Zen is the casting off of all one thinks one possesses, even life, to get back to the ultimate state of being, the "Original Abode."

This can be done by every one of us, for we are what we are because of it, and without it we are nothing.

This is to be called the last stage of simplification, since things cannot be reduced to any simpler terms.

--- D. T. Suzuki
