Some do find His Teachings hard to penetrate and understand , His use of words seem to force the reader instantly into the world of multiple perspectives. I presume that's why He emphasises a "soft and flexible mind" a rigid mind would not be capable of seeing various perspectives, He obviously understood Mental Ridgitity probably via His Students, hence the use of Koans. One of many amazing Teachers..... imo.
