    A Zen Koan is a pithy statement, poem or story built around an inherent paradox. It's purpose is to take the student's mind beyond the realm of logic and control allowing the 'AHA!' momento of true insight to happen. here are some examples:

    The world is vast and wide. Why do you put on your robes at the sound of a bell?
    Muji - Collection of Stone and Sand 13th century

    When can the eye see itself?
    Alan Watts 1970s

    What is the colour of wind?

    How quickly must you turn on the light to see the nature of darkness?


    being balanced in attack
    having a presence in the box
    creating and scoring chances
    but not scoring

    They have form for their managers being almost zen-like in what they say. This one sticks in my mind from the magic hat on being 25 points behind us...I've split it into short lines and urge you to read it with a sage Chinese accent whilst stroking your chin!

    I’m reading in the paper
    Celtic are on a record-breaking run.
    If they won four games less,
    they would be 13 ahead.
    If we had won one of our games it would be 10
