Although it may sound paradoxical, Zen maintains that this ground isalso a fount of creativity. Because there is no determinationin the ground, it is pregnant with many possibilities or meanings tobe realized. Zen maintains, via the influences from philosophicalDaoism, that this creativity is in the same order as that of nature,for the practitioner reaches the original source prior to thedistinction between the outer world and the inner world. (Hence, Zenunderstands, as was mentioned in the foregoing, the human being to be“a being-in-nature.”)
