Review

"With simple explanations and examples, Barnes introduces the reader to a spiritual understanding of life that is quite beautiful--one that seems very much in alignment with Einstein's own thoughts about the ultimate nature of this mysterious and miraculous universe we live in."
-
Steven Lane Taylor, (author of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat: A Guide for Living Life in the Divine Flow)

From the Author

When I was in college, I experienced an existential crisis. 

Suffering depression, I sought to find the way out, and looked to religion, philosophy, and spiritual studies as the antidote.


I came across Zen early in my studies. It was really my introduction to the spiritual path. However, for me, it was the hardest teaching to grasp, and took me the longest to understand. Once I did, it became my favorite overall.


The main difference between Zen and other spiritual teachings is that Zen is all about 
experiencing the reality of existence for yourself, not just learning about it from others, or worshipping those who have found it. This concept is so ingrained in Zen that all attachment to teachers and paths are strictly admonished. 

There is a famous parable in Buddhism where Buddha points at the moon, which was symbolic of truth. The student was so captivated by Buddha's finger that he missed the moon that was being pointed to. 

According to Zen, this is the downfall of most paths. We worship the messenger and argue over their teachings instead of seeking the same truth that they found. 

Once I obtained a grasp on Zen, I wanted to share it with others. In order to do so, I had to find a way to explain the concepts and practices in a way that others might more easily understand.

 Ultimately, I found that explaining the sayings of some of the greatest thinkers in society, like Einstein, Tesla, and Twain was the easiest route. 

I hope you will agree.

Matthew Barnes is an avid learner who spent his early years in North Carolina. During college, he experienced a stint with depression which led him to the works of the Eastern philosophers. He started writing simplified versions of the works he was inspired by in response to a friend that was struggling with religion. He hopes his attempts at simplifying the philosophies of ancient spiritual traditions will make them more accessible to Western minds, and in turn, will help bring peace to those, like his friend, who have found themselves lost in a world that, at times, seems so devoid of meaning and hope.
