“The most important thing is finding out what is the most important thing.”
What is the meaning of life? What is the most important thing to us? It is simple, it is finding out what the most important thing is. It is like saying, “life is what happens in between making plans”. There is not one thing that is more important than anything else, nor is the path to this one thing the same for everyone.
When we search, when we actively seek out what is most important in life, we are living and when we are living, whatever it is we are doing, if we are doing it with our complete mind and body, that is Zen.
