vertical line Handing in with either or is neither one nor other for the sun still shines through every door which is closed to truth, to love, and enlightenment. Just as soon as answers rise to fill the void of gratification doubt, fear, and anger stay centered on the throne of ego-centrism. The void of unconditional realization neither takes or gives satisfaction or bliss to one who separates self from other. One more word to plant a flower by.

vertical line Nobody really talks about that in wisdom traditions but it is the reason for their talking. Its the reason for their silence.

vertical line Body-mind includes all that is.

I am not this body-mind.

Who am I?

If you answer "who am I" with anything but a complete answer, you have made a mistake.

vertical line Zen Buddhism and Meditation are a door. Yes, it's a nice door but I don't see the point in talking about it. Just go in and see what's inside.

These are not doors to retail shops ... just go inside and see what you like.
There needs to be some guidance from others who are further along the path.
I am sorry you do not feel the same ... to help others ...

vertical line Just do what you feel like doing. Be what you feel like being. Think what you feel like thinking. Sit, stand, walk, lie down when you feel like sitting, standing, walking, lying down. Eat what you feel like eating, sleep whenever you feel like sleeping. Whatsoever happens, it's happening because it feels like happening.
