I exit in your knowledge of me and because your attachement on your knowledge , I exist . Your denial of my existence is still part of your knowledge therefore your knowledge whether I exist or not is your burden / your suffering .......in realization of Buddhism there is no attachment on knowledge , knowledge is not something that you gain and keep ..but knowledge is a tiny part in a lenghtly natural process of self realization ........your perception of my existence , your faith on my existence will caused you travelling in longer path into your realization of yourself  . In realization of Buddhism , all existence is same and equal , no me or you , no you or the dirt on your table , as you are same as all , all is nothingness ................there is nothing to know about others as there is no others ......

vertical line I cannot describe myself. All I can say is I am an infinite being and that cannot be described.
I cannot judge another. All I can say is he/she is an infinite being and that cannot be judged.

.........

Perhaps Buddhism is to explore / understand / realize the desire " to descripe " or the desire "to descripe" not to gain knowledge to fulfill own desire.........Buddhism is a natural process perhaps leading to liberation of all ...............

vertical line Perhaps everything is a mental construction and Zen Buddhism is to recognize the operation, function, process & being of the mind to see into one's own nature here/now as whole. And surely not as one experience of enlightenment but as every moment is enlightenment.

.........

Perhaps human confused over own culture that use "knowledge" as basis of everything ...knowledge is information that we learn from education / sociaty / culture / parent / friends / school etc ...and metal construction is part of the tools to explore, to obtain knowledge ...all that we know is only knowledge so whether is mental construction or delution is just part of knowledge ......Buddhism is perhaps beyond knowledge and in my current understanding  nothing is referral to Buddhism nor Zen , text , even Siddharta's direct words ..........perhaps enlighternment is a condition closer to emptiness , a condition of almost liberation from all emotion and perhaps if anyone in that condition , he will never have desire to write ........every moment to me is not enlighterment as enlighternment is a condition that never affected by time ......but a condition . To me no one can have experience enlighternment as this condition is never out of expectation , or creation by knowledge or emotion or resulted by any practice ...in short if you in enlighternment , you will never know you in enlighternment because you perhaps  in a condition of no more desire / emotions .....

.........

Just for discussion and learning .....perhaps the emotion to own the " heart" is something I learning to realize and to free off .......Perhaps is not what we need in Buddhism , is what we realize the "emotion to need"........and is a process freedom from any need .

Quote: "Kill the Buddha and move on..."
.........

Perhaps the Buddha is nothingness , is theoriginal condition of all existence regardless living or non-living ....so if it is nothingness how could it be killed ? and how to "move on away from it"......perhaps all existence is travelling towards it not by choice but is a natural process ..............
