not kerygma, but realization,
not revelation but consciousness,
not news from the Father who sent his son into this world,
but awareness of the ontological ground of our own being here and now,
right in the midst of this world."
(Zen and the Birds of Appetite, p. 47. The word, kerygma, from the Greek meaning "herald", refers, in the period of the early apostles, to their dissemination of the new faith.)
