Wisdom is achievable only through unlearning

Happiness is always there inside of us. It's hidden under the conditionings that once were its protection, as the shell of egg to a little chick.

But the little chick will never be a chick will never be a rooster, if the same shell that is its protection doesn't get broken. What was guarantee of life, becomes a prison.

All of us were born truly happy and taught to be miserable. Now, all we have to do is unlearn to become wise. Unlearn all the clutter of conditionings and prejudice. And this what meditation, Zen is all about: An intense process of unlearning.

The wheel of Samsara is Mill stone

Life is mill
breaking me down
to powder, to dust,to flour, to meal,
to bread to feed
the feast,
the lamb and the beast.

Once I was seed,
and I flowered
and when I gave myself
to decay,
after the pain,
I became a tree.

Then, I spreaded,
greedy grew,
dried, died.

An, you see,
again, I am here.
Again,as grain and seed.
And my life
is this sea
of green.

Oh, this sea!
