This is very much where I am at with my early studies into Zen and Buddhism. At one level the concepts make sense to me, but on another level, my mind rejects them, or more accurately, tries to put up barriers to keep them out.

I'm having a hard time unlearning many of the ideas and philosophies that were ingrained in my mind since I was a child, being raised in the LDS (mormon) church. Even though I don't believe these ideas, they have been a part of my life since I was so young that they're buried deep within my mind and so it's often very hard to get to the base of them so I can uproot them and toss them out so there's room for something new.
