318. Politicians are busy trying  (it would seem) to buy our vote. They present as great talkers yet would have us believe that they are good listeners. But to whom or to what are they listening? Unlike the politician the Zen practitioner can't afford to dismiss fundamental questions with some such quip as 'it's the economy stupid'. In zazen there is room for self-doubt, self-inquiry and the recognition that we don't live by bread alone.
