Merriam-Webster defines zen as "a Japanese sect of Mahayana Buddhism that aims at enlightenment by direct intuition through meditation." However, finding you zen might be easier than you think. You don't have to be Ghandi or Buddha in order to find your enlightenment and clarity.

Well besides taking a yoga class or doing some meditation, reading some quotes about zen might make you feel a little more at peace. Just simply giving yourself some time to reflect and pause in the craziness we call life, can make you feel invigorated.
