Re: Zen Practice

. . . like Spike who as best I can see says if i didn't explain it properly, you are free to come up with your view. Sorry not to be clearer. Goodness, nothing "improper" at all! Discernment, not explanation, was the reference. Tried and failed to be neutral. I can connect with the passion and good...

Re: Zen Practice (Emptiness Concept)

what I said has nothing to do with conduct. to be clear, it has nothing to do with spiritual bypass or misconduct. If discernment of authorial intent is unavailable, then the option remains to consider a personal meaning. And when such is the case, that personal meaning is just as valid as the actu...

Re: Zen Practice

“Padmasambhava said: ‘Though the view should be as vast as the sky, keep your conduct as fine as barley flour.’ Don’t confuse one with the other. When training in the view, you can be as unbiased, as impartial, as vast, immense, and unlimited as the sky. Your behaviour, on the other hand, should be...

Re: JOKES

In your avatar, what do you call that little guy, "dressed in black", praying (incanting?) over the goldfish bowl?

P.S. I know it's not Johnny Cash.

P.P.S. Trying to fish?

Re: Suggestion "This Forum in Particular"

:fencing: I enjoy talking with people but mostly on forums it's not a matter of talking with but talking to which often distorts in the usual collecting of talking in favour or talking in opposition of some persona, when it comes to 'meditation'... do you have a girl friend? I vote you stfu.

In my practice, there is no effort to understand these questions intellectually. So "right", yes, of course. Your effort to explain these questions is mi...

Re: Zen Practice

Can you comprehend what i mean when i say emptiness? that which i spent my last week with trying to explain it. All the answers are there. There is nothing to think in emptiness.
