what's there? r they complementary?

禪宗不特別要求特別的修行環境,而隨著某種機緣,偶然得道,獲得身處塵世之中,而心在塵世之外的「無念」境界,而「無念」的境界要求的不是「從凡入聖」,而更是要「從聖入凡」。得道者日常生活與常人無異,而是精神生活不同。在與日常事物接觸時,心境能夠不受外界的影響,換言之,凡人與佛只在一念之差。
有學者認為禪宗思想,在諸多方面受到了道家莊子的啟發。

庄子. (道)
天道无为.
庄子主张顺从天道,而摒弃“人为”,摒弃人性中那些“伪”的杂质。顺从“天道”,从而与天地相通的,就是庄子所提倡的“德”。在庄子看来,真正的生活是自然而然的,因此不需要去教导什么,规定什么,而是要去掉什么,忘掉什么,忘掉成心、机心、分别心。既然如此,还用得着政治宣传、礼乐教化、仁义劝导?这些宣传、教化、劝导,庄子认为都是人性中的“伪”,所以要摒弃它

the foundation of Stoic ethics is that good lies in the state of the soul itself; in wisdom and self-control. Stoic ethics stressed the rule: "Follow where reason leads." One must therefore strive to be free of the passions, bearing in mind that the ancient meaning of 'passion' was "anguish" or "suffering",[23] that is, "passively" reacting to external events — somewhat different from the modern use of the word.
