Hi DP,

Science will tell you, there are more neuron firing to the brain from 
the stomach then the other way around. Similarly there are more neuron 
from the sub conscience, from the heart, from other organs, from the 
entire body...

In Chan, wisdom is not from the brain, but from the heart within.

Whether you called it Buddhist mind, or mind, or Christian mind, 
everyone of us has gotten only one mind.  And to confuse you some more, 
Chan does not use the word of "mind", but "heart".

As you see, words are very confusing.  Therefore we often say...

"Chan is not to be understood, studied or mastered.  Chan is to be 
practiced and experienced.  And there is only one way to enter the 
experience -- to meditate."  Not 10 minutes, but at least 45 minutes to 
an hour everyday.  There is nothing needs to be understood.

There is a saying in the Zen community - sit down, shut up and stop 

Then the gate opens up.

Bon Voyage,

Be Enlightened In This Life - We ALL Can
