Zen of the Day

Master, what is the Way?
The Normal Mind is the Way. What you have unlearned you have learned.

You are reading this sentence without thinking about how you are doing it. Yet you spent several years learning the alphabet, how to sound out words, and how to string them out into a complete sentence. You learned how to read, but you really didn’t know how to read until the day you stopped thinking it. When you can do something without thinking about it – do it with a normal mind – then you have mastery.
