Love in Zen is a love for or delight in the world. Both Christian love and Buddhist compassion are based on a belief in the need to be saved from the world of sin or suffering. Moreover, like most salvation religions they are almost entirely concerned with human existence, and they either ignore nature as being unimportant, as in Christianity, or as one of the sources of human suffering, as in standard Buddhism. The world for Zen means both the human one and the world of nature. Salvation implies that life here and now is subordinate or inferior to some future existence after death. To be able to love nature, on the other hand, is to be in love with life in all its manifestations in the here and now. The Comic in Zen
Its important to get the 'theology' right, this is from my favourite Zen site. More important than the words here is a practice of being in the world, while campaigning for our planet and liberation. I think my only difference with the above paragraph is that Christians and non zen Buddhists (all of us in fact) can love creation, think of creation spirituality.
I would say to all of you interested in say green politics or animal liberation or Mumia or socialism or whatever to let in a bit of zen into your life, just for this second.
I get like this when I have missed zazen, must stop preaching and start sitting.
