vertical line very interesting, thankyou leo.

my notes.

Music introduces the ears to zen
-------

one pointedness of mind is the key to the open mind (the gateless gate)
-------

A person watching a stream
says the cloud in the sky
-------

the mind resting.
the mind discovering.
the mind discovering itself.
the mind discovering itself while sitting in itself.
the mind discovering itself while playing in itself.
the mind discovering itself while thinking in itself.
the mind discovering itself while practising in itself.
the mind discovering itself in anger.

the mind resting in itself while discovering itself sitting in itself
the mind resting in itself while discovering itself playing in itself
the mind resting in itself while discovering itself thinking in itself
the mind resting in itself while discovering itself practising in itself

the mind discovering itself in anger does not rest.

Yes true, I haven't been thought in this way.
