In the Zendo
When all the coughing ceased
All sound ceased.

Finally summer
Flu season at last over
Thanks to benadryl

*Waves rather long staff in Joinee's direction*

the sound of one hand clapping is _____.

to truly learn and master the art fo zen, one must make 600000 plasatic teddy bears in 12 hours, for 40 hours a week.

when oen truly learns the art of zen, one wishes only for b33r, and for women. the zen master knows the truth of that which is more enlightening.

horab........................but to know that is to know of "something", and that is to cling to some idea.

Seek out the poems associated with the Ten Bulls, and then the descriptive stories that elaborate their meaning.

Some say he was a pisshead.............some say he wa a Zen Master!

Quote from: seanfish
My own philosophy... hmm...

1.) I am a being of pure light merely passing through at this time.

2.) I am god.

3.) All is god (so I guess that puts me in the pantheist camp).

4.) The above two combined mean I am not in the position of looking down on anyone or thing. This is why you will find I can be very forthright with my opinions - I don't act on the assumptions that people won't like what I have to say, because I would welcome their views as coming from another divine soul. Unless I don't hehe I reserve the right to be out of contact with my personal godhood and in a snarky mood.

5.) Lots of influences from Buddhism/Taoism. These inform my spirituality cyclically so that I will at various times see them as useless and then see deeper levels and meanings in their teachings. This is ok by me.

6.) Zen as a pragmatic approach to life. I utilise the suspension of thought and belief on many occasions to avoid walking into traps, simple and complex, immediate and metaphorical. I am often amazed at the multiple assumptions on which people base their lives. Answering questions raised elsewhere, I guess I would say I have absolute faith in a reality outside myself and moderate faith in my perception of it (sufficient to keep me alive and well). Where I see a difficulty for myself and others is in the interpretation of it (not that I don't interpret reality through my own lens, having tried living with a permanently expanding mind thanks to mental illness I have to say filters are goooood and losing selfhood to a mass of understanding and compassion is baaaad, when it's out of your control anyhow. Relgious experiences are neato, religious enforced labour is scary, just ask Joan of Arc.) Anyhow, with regards to interpretation it's not that I don't interpret, it's that I consciously acknowledge that I am interpreting. I think Trollax posted elsewhere on semantics, and that is what is going on for me here. I am aware when I and others place semantic constraints to try and contain reality.

7.) All that having been said, I mostly try to live life in the now. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

The post that can be posted is not the enduring nor eternal post!

Now you are you can you can see yourself under there dancesth a God in thee!
