(re)introduction

Post by fuki » Fri May 29, 2020 4:24 pm

Feel free to re-introduce yourself 'old' or 'new' members either serving as a navigational function, inspirational or whatever intro-ducing oneself might mean.

I'll start; (without locking up any-one in a mental picture)
given name "marcel vuijst" "born" 1976 known as "hentopan' 'fukasetsu' and 'fuki' on the interweb.
first 'touch' with the dharma around the age of 18 when picking up my "ex" who worked in a second-hand store, while I was roaming through the shop waiting for her to finish work, suddenly I "lost consciousness" when I 'returned' I found the body to be a ground above in the library section and I noticed I had a zen book in my hand. I thought it looked interesting without giving a second thought to the 'experience' and just took it home. When home I opened the book (the compass of zen by Seung Sahn) the first lines (or what I remember) were "there is no such thing as time and space, time and space is created by thinking" For me this gave a big internal reaction, nothing like the western philosophy books or (outdated) ways of thinking I ever came across...everything 'after' that (now 43) has been an interesting journey (I won't list any credentials or "lack" thereof) but been "fortunate" to have met ppl/guidance along the way, this forum as the previous 'versions/forums' serving as a prop. As life is always unfolding/universally functioning. Gratitude to all beings disguised as the "One" (if that many to quote Sir Joe) 🙏

My husband had a lot of books- Some about Buddhism, which he didn't have much interest in because he maintained that it was supposed to keep you happy- End of discussion- (just like the veto-ing of my music 🎶) So I got to wondering and fell down the ZFI rabbit hole- And holy crap, Batman! Testosterone! Massaging misogyny! The place could have definitely done with a bit more estrogen any given day of the week -- years ..

But that was not to be- It was what it was and remains: A place of lifesaving, blind-spotted, sentient beings- That stink- My gratitude for all paths that crossed there and beyond is infinite-
