Zen, meditation, objectless activities

 When I talk about the void, you should avoid developing a concept of nothingness. Many people have fallen into this subtle trap, believing that they have discovered some ultimate truth. Some of them become false teachers who urge their students to sit quietly with blank minds. There are such teachers active today, claiming that they are teaching “objectless meditation.

Sitting for long periods trying to suppress thoughts is not objectless meditation; it is abiding in a state of useless impotence.
You should know that there is not an objective particle in the entire universe. Once you truly awaken, you realize that all activities are “objectless.
