Zen Buddhism

What are the concerns of a Zen student?
Robert Aiken, author of the book "Taking the Path of Zen", he wrote- first, being alive is an important responsibility;second,we have little time to fulfill that responsibility; and third,rigorous practice is necessary for fulfillment.". He wrote further:"Delusions and attachments consisting of sel-centered and conceptual thinking obscure the living fact. The Zen path is devoted to clearing away these obstructions and seeing into true nature....Zen is noetic...it originates in the mind.It is not intellectual,but involves realization,the purest gnosis of 'just this' ".
