vertical line don't deny your existence.
fill your world with love and compassion.
dream the great dream.

follow the 5 steps on how to be a buddhist, you'll find yourself there.

you'll be blinded by hate
you'll be a fool for emotion
love is the only way to freedom.

vertical line Get out of the way and let your light shine, let your love show
it's a sure ride down that long road
when the rain comes and the wind blows
let your light shine wherever you go.

vertical line In Zen how can you be you when you are no longer you?



Who would I be then???
What do you believe that would change??
Zen is about living fully in the here and now.
When hungry, eat
When tired, rest
When chopping wood, chop .... hahaha

When sitting, just sit!!!

and your feeling like dust on an empty shelf, just remember

vertical line The self that does not exist is simply, a point of view, a frame of reference. Entrenched in this perspective, it is defended, as if it is an absolute reality.

Thanks for the insight.
Now, how do we let go of this perspective and get to "Meeting Reality"??

vertical line A person who meditates will eventually encounter the experience of a mind and body which synchronizes. In the core of this merging, the past falls away, and the future falls away. What is distinct and intrinsically detailed as immediate, fresh and new, is this precise moment. There is no frame of reference called "self" or "I". Yet, you can not sit with the intention to achieve this. It is, simply, so. Strangely it is by being kind, to whatever arising experience occurs, weather one of discomfort or one of great joy, no experience is turned away. There is no agenda.

It sounds right on the surface ... maybe I'm missing something??

It feels like the mirror trying to look upon itself??
