Bhikkhus, what is ignorance?
Not knowing suffering,
Not knowing the origin of suffering,
Not knowing the cessation of suffering,
Not knowing the path leading to... continue...

Pardon my weak interaction skills. I've been in the process of interbeing and trying find some ground in that since I have been around. So thanks for your patience! Just a thought on this topic...The Point Zazen seems to look beyond these two intersections. That's all.

vertical line THE POINT OF ZAZEN

The hub of buddhas' activity,
the turning of the ancestors' hub,
moves along with beyond thinking
and is completed in the realm of beyond merging.

As it moves along with beyond thinking,
its appearing is immediate.
As it is completed in the realm of beyond merging,
completeness itself is realization.

When its appearing is intimate,
you have no illusion.
When completeness reveals itself,
it is neither real nor apparent.

When you have immediacy without illusion,
immediacy is "dropping away" with no obstacles.
Realization, beyond real or apparent,
is effort without expectation.

Clear water all the way to the bottom;
a fish swims like a fish.
Vast sky transparent throughout;
a bird flies like a bird.

-Dogen

Distorts the Heavens from Pole to Pole
And leads you to Believe a Lie
When you see with, not thro', the eye.
