the court of the monastery, a man asked him:
-Ch'an monastery supposed to be clean and pure. Why is there dust to sweep?
Chao-chou replied:
-It came... continue...

Existing, then death

Nothing in between... no secrets, no realizations, no "keys"

There is no "enlightenment", no magical states, just existance

If you tell yourself you are enlightened, so be it, "whatever floats your boat."

Some call themselves "the holy", others "the enlightened". Some crave pills, others crave purpose.

Just paddle along and do whatever you feel you need to do, the movie always ends the same way.

Existing, then death

Nothing in between... no secrets, no realizations, no "keys"

If there is nothing in between then 'existing and death' are the one thing.

Then it is all the one thing. And then when it does not stand in contrast to anything else, things are not things any more.

It becomes no-things. All is no-things. No-thing-ness. Paradox in motion.

Assimilation is the way of experience.

Assimilation.

As one. As none. Its there.
