Re: In a Nutshell

Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going.
No feeling is final.

Re: A hypothesis

Does expounding theories of this and that, or trying to fit in with standards from literature even matter if one's practice helps to expand one's awareness and improve one's quality of life? . Different strokes for different folks, as they say. One (expounding and trying to fit) need not preclude t...

Re: A hypothesis

We humans largely remain in the dark concerning the nature of dreams for example. Your "ground breaking" experience...

Good point.
Soto, Rinzai, it will out last all of us.
Why would it?

One point that may be noticed from the article by Taigen is that the "Silent Illumination" that he believes Dogen encountered was not quite the stages and "deep concentration" meditation that some folks these days sometimes describe as "Silent Illumination."

Lillian is no longer allowed to post, and many of her posts were deleted. The conversations on Soto Zen in the "Soto Zen" forum are dominated by mostly non-Soto indivuduals (one woman associated with Bukkokuji in Japan, which is actually a Rinzai temple in its practices although nominally Soto: htt...

Re: The Bigotry against Soto Zen at DharmaWheel

Where is the bigotry? Back when you first started this thread here I was also reading the thread you refer to on DharmaWheel and I didn’t see any bigotry at all, just people talking. Nothing you have since posted, here, indicates what you claim. Who are the Soto people who have been deleted or banne...
