What is Zen?

Zen is very simple... What are you? In this whole world everyone searches for happiness outside, but nobody understands their true self inside. Everybody says, "I" –  "I want this, I am like that..." But nobody understands this "I" Before you were born, where did your I come from? When you die, where will your I go? If you sincerely ask, "What am I?" sooner or later you will run into a wall where all thinking is cut off. We call this "Don't know." Zen is keeping this "Don't know" mind always and everywhere.
