An old pine tree preaches wisdom
And a wild bird
Is crying out truth
Zen brings you to question that to be accidental is not your destiny. To be existential is your destiny. So drop following, just stand on your own feet and look inwards. Following is always looking outwards. Look inwards and you will find eternal peace. Of course, in that eternal peace you have to disappear, but it is a sheer joy to disappear.
To be is a tension.
Not to be is a relaxation.
