Different winds come from all directions. Some are clear, some carry dust,
some are cold or hot, fierce gales or gentle breezes. In the same way
sensations arise in the body... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: REDNECK ZEN.
vertical line Posted on Sep.23.2008 @ 10:24AM EDT by shayne

redneck zen suggests your self and your ego and your attention exists.

afterall.......THIS is reality.

and no amount of zen will change it.

and i personally think ALL this talk is hellish.

no mind?

no self?

wtf?

deluded stuff going on round here.

mind./no mind are the waxing and waning of the polarity opposites thats why.

vertical line Well, the stuff we believe in doesnt seem to make much sense at first but then again neither does beer drinking, nascar, or the exibition of the the confederate flag in public places.

vertical line I don't think the idea of "no mind" or "no Self" is unusual in zen.. D.T. Suzki talks about it, Alan Watts talks about it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mushin

vertical line I am really surprised actually, you never really heard or read about "no-mind" or "no-self" in your practice?

ive read about it.

now mushin is a differant fact.

if youve read previous posts of mine....the art of flowing and not fixating on a particular sense object. or the toa.

well then..........but i dont buy into non-attention. which two people on here proclaims is the way.

when i say no mind i mean non-attention.
