Three reasons Zen can be difficult for some Westerners to grasp:

It sets no standards,

It establishes no right or wrong,

It acknowledges neither good nor bad.

These strictures are artificially conceived. They are invented by humankind to fit its own self-made judgments.

Zen is, and it is only for the person who is willing to be one with Zen.

"It establishes no right or wrong..."

Is that right? Once again, logic cannot be ignored. The very statement that Zen establishes no right or wrong is, in fact, a statement of fact. So how can we know if that statement is right? Would Zen not require it to be right?
