"In the beginner's mind there are many possibiliities, in the experts mind there are few." Shunryu Suzuki

Big Zen is a collection of random thoughts and material which I find inspiring.

I'm not a Zen Buddhist although I do have a great deal of respect for the philosophy of Zen and Buddhism in general. The posts here are not meant to be a reflection of orthodox Zen but some are inspired by the elegant philosophy contained within the Zen tradition.  

What I write here is really just a way of organizing my own raw and unedited thoughts in the tradition of the 'Beginner's Mind'.
