FINALLY !!!! Someone described Zen in a way I can understand it.

you're very welcome. Smile

But of course, there are those who would argue that since it was explained.... it's not Zen.

Now if enlightenment, or even bliss was possible through
a process with our reasoning mind, Zen would do the trick!

Shows how much I know about Zen, huh?

Zen does not make you reason
Zen does not make you think

If thinking and reasoning were the way to enlightenment, libraries and universities would be full of zen masters.

If Zen is trully enlightment then, Zen cannot be described. That is the intuitive way. Even Buddha never described what enlightment was.
