Again, I agree with Kevin. Zen and Daoism and Buddhism seem to be quite different things. The Buddhist reading that I've done seems to make a really strong issue out of 'avoiding suffering.' It's hard for me not to read this as a fear of something that I see as an essential and inalienable part of life. Zen and Daoism don't have this flavor.
But then, neither my reading nor my experience with any of these things is very serious.
