I am 38, and I have been meditating on and off for about two years, reading about Zen for about 10. I find that zazen helps with my Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and while I don't want to go into too many details about that, they key is the fear of uncertainty. the fact that Zen embraces uncertainty is what appeals to me. I am nominally Christian, but I lean towards the more liberal end, i.e. Quaker or even further. I see Christianity's strength being in its ethical system, at least when properly applied. I would become even more involved with Zen, sadly there is no real Zendo near where I live. Anything else anyone would like to know?
