Just see the point.

I heard the Master say, “Just see the point. You are now here trying to be here now. Mind will never understand no-mind, no matter how hard it struggles.”

In Zen, the question is a koan: What is the sound of one hand clapping? Even a child understands the absurdity, but still we go on trying to be here now.

Effort is the barrier.
