some definitions of Zen, from an urban view
One way to think of zen is this: a total state of focus that incorporates a total togetherness of body and mind. Zen is a way of being. It also is a state of mind. Zen involves dropping illusion and seeing things without distortion created by your own thoughts.
Complete and absolute peace.
I am so zen. This guy dumped muddy water on me and I just smiled and waved.
The idea of being one with your mind, so that self-perfection, self-preservation, and self-renouncement are freely available. One who studies the power of “zen” is one who challenges him- or herself to attaining complete physical confidence through mental stability. The power of zen is often manifested in the physical world as telepathy or entropy, and more so in the spiritual world as post-death abominations.
“He was so attuned with zen that he could see the future.”
A state of mind in which one is calm and impassive and does not betray their true emotions. Nothing phases one who is zen.
