I'm a Buddhist, though not a Zen Buddhist, and I think this question unfortunately contributes to common misconceptions about what "Zen" is. Zen is not just a synonym for "feeling kinda groovy". As something that involves deep awareness of the non-existence of self, many practitioners say it can be profoundly terrifying. It's more than stuff like this. Just wanted to drop that out there for education purposes.

It's not a matter of 'misconception,' it's a matter of sheer shallow stupidity.

Which is therefore the only appropriate response (http://baron-waste.livejournal.com/1654221.html).
