So, what is Zen? You are Zen! The Zen approach is to strip away all accumulations. Zen requires that we be naked. The intent of Zen is to bring about a denuding. This calls for the complete destruction of the accumulations of little mind. Destruction in the sense that it will be revealed for what it is, an accumulation of concepts, and that we have accepted the accumulations as a real world.
Zen Master Don Gilbert (aka Rev. Ta Hui)
