The Three Sources and Three Component Parts of Ukrainian Moto Zen (can be skipped without reading)
Ukrainian Moto Zen has nothing to do with Japanese Shinto or Christian mysticism. In addition, there is nothing special about Buddhist teachings. Ukrainian Moto Zen is also not a sect that professes difficult spiritual practices. No need to shave your head or wear sandals.
At the same time, Ukrainian Moto Zen as a movement of people of kindness has its scientific basis and practical components.
Ukrainian Moto Zen is a consistent concept resulting from the processing, critical re-interpretation and creative development of the best that human thought produced for all time. Hence, the theoretical sources of Ukrainian Moto Zen are pure Platonism, Spinoza’s pantheism, and self-knowledge of Hegel.
Another honorable mention is Seneca, more precisely – the fatalism of those who go forward.
The practical components of Ukrainian Moto Zen are: deliverance, contemplation and self-knowledge.
Deliverance presupposes peace of mind with elements of salvation and self-preservation. It goes without saying, the deliverance in this case has nothing to do with the deliverance of Joseph Knecht.
Contemplation is a prerequisite for the spiritual-intellectual practice of Ukrainian Moto Zen. The forms of contemplation are space and time in motion, since in motion on a motorcycle every object is perceived in space and time.
Self-knowledge is the idea, awareness and comprehension of one’s personality as a process of cognizing the surrounding world and establishing harmonious relations with this world.
