Whether serious or playful, witty or evocative, zen is alive because it is spontaneous. If you want to experience this spontaneity in your own life and work, don’t waste your energy on judgment or reflection. This is a good photograph, this is a bad photograph. I like this, I don’t like this. That’s just the brambles, the entanglements that keep us from really getting in touch with our creative heart.
– J. D. Loori (zen master and photographer)
