I've been going down the rabbit hole in the past week because I had to prepare what I was going to say at an event. So I studied all the primary sources again for a few days. The effect wasn't good at all. It made me depressed and I realize now that Zen not right thing for me. It's quite a heartless affair. They hit, beat and shout at each other to get "realization". I don't get this impression from the Dao De Jing though or from as taught by Thich Nath Hanh for example.

I like this point Tolle makes about and that his teaching is not about getting enlightenment or something like that but to end suffering. Isn't that what we all want? Not to suffer any longer. That is the true motivator behind all the seeking. Who cares about if you are free from suffering? Who even wants anything if he's free from suffering?

The Seeker went through with me again. When the Seeker gets loose it convinces me that I need something else to be happy. It creates this big hole in me. It is a weird thing.

Interestingly a common view people that don't want to change or confront themselves seem to have, is the idea that there is no free will. Kind of like to excuse their unwillingness to change.
