→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: GOOD BLOG (SOTO LINEAGE)
vertical line Posted on Aug.15.2007 @ 12:45PM EDT by HarryB
I heartily recommend the blog here:

http://www.myspace.com/zenritsudo

Richard Morrissey is a Zen Buddhist priest of Soto lineage.

He's a nice, down-to-earth guy... but please do read the blog closely before getting in contact with him with a view to joining his cult or to ask for deliverance from your demon ego, or any of that other fruitcake crap that goes down here.

Regards,

Harry.

vertical line Why? No. I don't usually (to my knowledge), read good or bad priest blogs on myspace, with lineage - how fruitcake crap is that? Anyway, I like real fruitcake and happen to believe it isn't crap, with a cuppa tea, so there! But I took a peek and lo aand behold this priest has a comb over hairstyle, either that or he wears a rug on his head and I receive a reinforcement of intuition (I have read Nishijima's translation of Shobogenzo though and still didn't join his Sangha), So, anyway, you read it. Report your dispatches if you want. And er...give him your regards when you make contact....and um...ask him how I am...and er...that's it. Shitters! Crap on crappin' on!

Yes, sorry, the link I meant to post to this forum was:

... a comb over, whatever was I thinking? How un-Zen of me.

No! Your dumb quietism is heresy against the divine light!

Yes, this crowd said they could save my fingers, and with a subscription, my legs, buttocks and imortal soul, I just have to contribute to a trifling, worldly extension to their humble dwelling:

I'm sorry, but I've taken vows that prohibit such outlandish Tantric behavior. As a Zen Aquarian I consider the sullying of Our Lord's air a deadly sin against Buddha's Christ Conciousness.

Where did you learn to speak 'Zen', can you get tapes?

Now, back to my pyramid to digest some more...

Ah, no harm done Lynnoh.

"Carry on Zen" is as relevant as any other twaddle when your bum's on the zafu (assuming we're not wasting our time there).

vertical line 'Nice' is one of those words (not the place which isn't nice), that is stripped of all meaning even before it gets its socks and shoes off. And zen isn't 'nice'. Jesus and Shakyamuni aren't nicey nice. Nice just doesn't do be do it. With feet on the ground and head in, and popping up out, the clouds it isn't nice because that's where the naked rude is revolutionised by not being, offensive.

vertical line Nobody. Anyway, this is the reason why I don't have any truck with this zen: + / - / = and I'm fed up (not nutritionally), of seeing and reading and hearing the silly, stupid word. I cured myself of zen by repeating 'zen' audibly, over and over and over again and I as thus able to recollect how I very nearly went stark staring mad during the dog-days when I used to contemplate soap bubbles soaking in the bath for hours at a time.

Yeah, Mara is playing snooker with my nuts! Its terrible, just terrible... hold the blue lazer light and dry ice. No Zen here.

I'm not enlightened at all, I'm not sure I even try. Could you love, or even tolerate, someone like that? What difficult practice! What bitter religion we have!
