Zen 2.0

Hvad er zen? Zen er den stilhed, der hersker i dag kl. 7.20 her i Skovhuset. Zen er berømt og berygtet. Zen er Gud og Jesus og Buddha og Krishna. Jeg synes selv jeg var nået ret langt i det her zen-game, men det er jeg måske slet ikke. Som jeg altid plejer at sige: hvis du har brug for at fortælle at du har opnået zen, så har du ikke opnået det. For så ville du ikke havde brug for at nævne det. Så ville du bare være. Zen er noget, mange har søgt efter og udforsket i mange årtusinder. Længe før kristendommen og alt det der gøgl. Især af munke. Zen er at sidde i en grotte hele sit liv og meditere, men også at lade være. Jeg læste engang en bog der hed “Bueskydning og Zen” om en hollandsk fyr, som tog i zenkloster i Japan. Den var god, synes jeg. De unge munke, som i øvrigt ofte var blevet tvunget i kloster af deres forældre, havde et stramt skema med meditationer hele dagen, og hvis de faldt sammen i deres ranke holdning eller faldt i søvn, fik de et slag over ryggen med en kæp. De levede i total askese, men en dag om året fik de “udgang” fra klostret, og gik fuldstændigt amok i damer og stoffer ude i byen. Så måske er zen ikke afholdenhed. Eller måske er zen slet ikke godt, fordi det skaber ubalance i tingene. Ja, al den balance ender med at skabe ubalance, for verden eller mennesket kan ikke være konstant harmonisk! Undertrykkelse er ikke zen, men uden fortrængningen af diverse drifter og af begær, kunne zen måske slet ikke opstå? Eller jo, det tror jeg godt, men det må opstå uden for enhver form for religion. Og jagten på zen kan også nemt blive en ny religion. I religion er der krig, kamp mod noget, det såkaldte onde. Om du kalder det satan eller egoet eller begær, er for mig ligegyldigt. Zen er ikke zen for mig, hvis det bare bliver en ny religion. Man kan ikke erklære sig zen, det er bare noget man er. Man kan ikke handle sig frem til zen. Man kan ikke-handle sig frem til det. Men så alligevel, giver det mening at forsøge at præstere sig til noget, som er så anti-præstations-agtigt? Kan man handle sig frem til ikke-gøren, kan man træne sig op i væren? Ja, for man kan altid snyde sindet, og måske er det det, det handler om. De gamle former for buddhisme, herunder zen, handler jo i høj grad om at kontrollere sindet. Og det er sjovt, for det er slet ikke det jeg forbinder med det. For mig handler det mere om at afgive al kontrol. Men hvad sker der så? Går jeg så bare totalt amok i dyriske instinkter og lader min stenalderhjerne overtage? Nej, ikke medmindre jeg er påvirket af diverse rusmidler. Det er faktisk først når jeg stopper med at bekæmpe den såkaldte fjende, det dyriske, det egocentrerede, det umenneskelige, at jeg kan blive fri af det. Det er sjovt, at mange (kristne) mener, at hvis vi stopper med at bekæmpe djævelen, så vil han overtage verden. Men tænk, hvis det eneste der hjælper, er at stoppe al kamp? Hvis ikke din fjende gider kæmpe, så gider du jo heller ikke. Eller også bliver kampen hurtigt standset, i det vi bliver udryddet, og vores fjende er alene tilbage i verden uden fjender, og dermed har han/de/dem/hun mistet deres identitet, og kan dermed ikke længere være ond eller god. Er zen Gud? Det er måske ikke så vigtigt. Det jeg er interesseret i er at komme i kontakt med Gud, I ved hvad jeg mener. Når jeg føler zen, er det så Gud jeg mærker? Findes der én frekvens, som vi alle kan tune ind på, hvor vi møder Gud, og al dogmatik og sproglige begreber er væk? Kan vi mødes et sted? Det jeg ønsker, er at blive forenet med mennesker. Virkelig forenet i en enhed. Og det generer mig hver dag, at vores moderne verden er så fragmenteret, og at alle fællesskaber er på lånt tid og på forskellige betingelser, og at folk er ensomme og alene helt ind i deres sjæl. Men måske er ensomhed også zen. Hvad ved jeg? Nogle gange skal kristne mennesker slappe lidt af. Slooow down. For mig sker det første møde med Gud i væren, ikke i handling. Det første vi skal gøre er at stoppe med at prøve. Overgivelse er allerførste skridt. Ligesom søndag er den første dag på ugen. Det kan være fuldstændigt ligegyldigt, om skabelsen nogensinde har fundet sted på syv dage osv. pointen med det her er, at vi må starte med en hviledag, altid! Og det gjorde Gud også. For hvordan vil du skabe, hvis du ikke kan være? Vi er besatte af at skabe og handle og gøre, og nu skal vi frelse hele verden. Men prøv lige at starte med at gøre ingenting. Du skal nok få masser af opgaver senere hen, så du kan føle dig vigtig. Men først må du opgive alt. Så vi kan blive et.
