Emoji Koans

According to Zen Flesh, Zen Bones, koans are “stories about self-discovery.” The internet variously describes them as teachings, parables, lessons and fairy-tales. All of these seem passive to me…like someone is waiting for the answer to be served if only they read the correct story.

Right now, I learn so much about myself and the world around me by actively exploring it. By turning koans into Emoji I want to explore them in my own playful way. I am trying to not take myself so seriously, which will hopefully help me stay focused.

What are your impressions of my Emoji Koans? Have I captured the stories? Come play with me!
