999 Days Around Africa: The Road Chose Me

I finally finished reading Robert M. Pirsig‘s Lila, the follow-up to Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. It got really heavy in the middle, a little over my head even. Towards the end everything came back into focus.
One of my favorite passages follows;
Pirsig is talking about a Zen state of mind, or Dhyåna here.

Dhyåna was what this boat was all about. It’s what Phåedrus had bought it for, a place to be alone and quiet and inconspicuous and able to settle down into himself and be what he really wanted and not what he was thought to be or supposed to be. That’s what the purpose of boats like this had always been… and seaside cottages too … and lake cabins … and hiking trails … and disc golf … and hot springs … It’s the need for dhyåna that is behind all these.

OK, so I added disc golf and hot springs – but you get the idea.
