Koans Lost in Translation
Koans are empty mirrors. A Koan can show you for example, that you look for some sort of inside and if you get upset of finding no-thing, you have mistaken the content of the mirror, with the mirror itself.
Whatever a koan brings up in you, that IS the living answer in this moment of time and space in your life.
In a way there is no false answer to a Koan. Once you looked in the mirror deep enough, recognised and owned yourself, the essence of the Koan will shine and act through you.
