William C. Dell teaches us to move our imaginations beyond the bounds of ordinary space time into the realm of eternal Zen consciousness, of the endless process of Zen deconstructing. Drawing upon texts spanning cultures and centuries, Dell brings together science, philosophy, poetry, and literary analysis to orchestrate an imaginative symphony of ideas playing the music of wisdom and understanding. His book takes the reader by the hand to confront “the universal navel of the world,” to move beyond conventional definitions and oppositions in order to understand the interconnectedness and shared being of all things, to marvel at the dance of reality unfolding out of the infinite choreography of imagination and potential. Written in a lean style that leads the reader to experience the “suchness” as well as the richness of Dell's ideas, Deconstructing Zen invites us all to conceive how the world's myriad paths to understanding lead us beyond the everyday, into the infinite realm of possibility, ultimately to embrace the empty fullness of Buddha's belly and total awareness.
