I can't match your muckraking.
I only briefly mentioned various cases of abuse to point out an issue that you seem to deny. A real muckraker would accuse you of complicity. I would never do that.

And that attempted guitar playing at the beginning is even more irritating than anyone on Zen Space :lol:
The beauty of punk is that you don't have to play good.

Re: Nothing goes...

Despite our best efforts in training, our dog is rather defiant. In fact, in some circumstances I think he's training me.

Re: Never Surrender!

b., Of course it's an issue. Would you like me to point out various cases of abuse? It's not an issue. If you're trying to say that it's not an issue for you, sure. Good for you. :) It's not an issue. Not a part of the Zen Buddhist Way. Brad says it's not traditional Zen also, but that doesn't mean...

Re: Never Surrender!

No, no disagreement. Zen practice with teacher and sangha does not involve surrender. It's just not an issue. We DO take refuge in Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha (IF we do... ), but that is not surrender at all: it is faith, and appreciation (ultimately, gratitude ). Most people who persist in and pers...

Never Surrender!

Never surrender to the teacher. Surrendering to a spiritual teacher is a mistake, says Brad Warner. He also says that in Zen there’s never been a tradition of guru worship where you surrender your will. If the teacher ever does something you’re not comfortable with you should just walk away. He also...

Well, I’m only at warning level 1 so I guess there may still be a bit more room for naughtiness.

Hi enso-tron,

Sorry for the wait. It takes a while to do an extensive background check. The good news is, you checked out! That incident you were involved in a few years ago had some of us a bit concerned but I was rooting for you. :hatsoff:

Re: Satori ala Soto

I cannot believe that someone comes to a Zen groups and is given "no instructions" and told to "just sit over there."
That would be silly of course. The obvious answer is that they don’t sit at all.
