Thanks John

You've encouraged me to read a little about Zen which wiki describes in part as "Zen emphasizes dharma practice and experiential wisdom—particularly as realized in the form of meditation known as zazen—in the attainment of awakening. As such, it de-emphasizes both theoretical knowledge and the study of religious texts in favor of direct, experiential realization."

Yep I'd support that - experience while having a rolling awareness of theory counts.
