Some people, unable to tolerate nothing as nothing, will cleverly try to make "nothing" mean "no-thing" - as in "I got nothing out of it: I got no thing out of it.".
Don't do that.
Rather, sit with nothing as nothing in your lap - like a hot brick.
Yes of course, describing anything as the "holy grail" of Zen epitomizes the pernicious trap known as the "stink of Zen".
But for now, it'll do. Here it's good enough for jazz.
