In the end, what the ignorant has, is nothing but a set moral values and common sense. None of these mere positions of the Mind can withstand the corrupting waves of desire, fear, greed and pride. One has to drop all things at hand and stand face to face with the true nature of self in order to enter the stream that salvages spirit from the hells of samsara. There are no short cuts on this matter.

Worse than dead, most western "zen teachers" are like undead corpses. Shuffling about they peddle useless psychological insights as True Dharma and fall into foul ego delusion. Even the "dead zen" that Hakuin warned about is better than this.
