Zen, Taoism and Hell

I had a friend who asked me about the content of my book “Spiritual, Not Religious.”

I attempted to explain it by describing the opening thoughts.

“I brought this book to a Zen master who told me that it did not sound like Zen and that clearly I had no understanding of Zen. He said it sounded more like Taoism than Zen and that I should bring it to a Taoist Sage.

So I brought this book to a Taoist Sage who told me that it did not sound anything like Taoism and that clearly I had no understanding of Taoist teachings. He said it sounded more like Zen than Taoism and that I should bring it to a Zen Master.

 

Then I brought the book to a zealous evangelist who read the book and told me I was” going to hell”.

These words brought great joy to me for it was then that I knew what the sound of “One” hand clapping was.

An afterthought:

“I can’t go to hell because Satan has a restraining order against me”

 

Here is a  fun video for the song “Hell”
