Zen: Means the traveller accepts pain in peace. One should get himself to the border of pain and remain motionless and silent in that border until
he forgets that pain and only remembers pain of Messiah and safely pushes that border further with practice.

He disappears from the material world and allows Messiah to paint the material world with the beautiful image of the traveller's soul.
The traveller becomes inside out to embrace the whole universe.
