~ Zen ~

"There are two ways. One is through one's own strength. This is called in Japanese jiriki, "self power." The other is through what the Japanese call the Way of the Kitten: tariki, or "outside help." Just as a kitten requires its mother to pick it up by the scruff of the neck and carry it to safe ground, so some souls require the action of an outside agent to carry them beyond themselves.

Zen is the way of inside help; you do it yourself. In the great mythic world of the Bodhisattvas and the Buddhas, whose grace and mercy and compassion yield the energy that enables us to release ourselves from the bonds of Illusion, on the other hand, you have the way of outside power. This is the way to myth."

(Joseph Campbell, Myths of Light)
