black is the opposite and have a negative meaning. it tells you will have some problems with your (non-thinking) thought.whatever it is.that you aim to.

If that match with any other color (outside of white or black) i don't give any significance.

as an important note: you don't focus on white or any thought. it happens just in daily life flows.

Absolutely from small decisions to big ones, from small problems to bigers, in all aspect of the daily life it provide you the right choise in the right time with all its possibilities.
I’ll bet it works for you, but to me it is pure BS. You would have to explain wtf it has to do with “Boddhidharma’s shoe case”, but not on my behalf, please. It is entertaining to a degree, but I can offer no encouragement.

Those hero ones, drunken ones, or have a life style like stray dogs etc.
They have one common side is that they are all kungfu masters and know fighting those I watch in the movies.

Yet, my favorite ones which i wish to be like are the ones that live like 'stray dogs'.
If you ask what is it to live like a stray dog is that you live a life like a stray dog as you do the things whatever and/or whenever you want.
"All zen masters are kungfu masters and know fighting . . ."

Cool comic book stuff, and I absolutely love those kung fu movies. My daughter studied kung fu with sifu Calvin who also worked at Home Depot! But "movies" is all they are.

So no, not serious. It would be a kindness to call it ignorance.

Do you expect readers to know what these bad things are if you don't explain?

Plz don't take my words as unshakable truths as nor anyone at the forum.Personally I am recording whatever comes to my mind.so, mostly they are not valuable than simple thoughts.
I think anyone at the forum is in capable of understanding this simple truth.

I am sure you meant the exact opposite of what you actually wrote, and that people here are indeed able.to understand whether or not what you write may be true.

In this thread, arms are only "flailing" if they are shaking hands.
