→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: DRINK TEA AT TEA TIME
vertical line Posted on Jan.14.2019 @ 12:04PM EDT by muuuuu
Hi,

There is a famous quote which starts with "Drink tea at tea time," and ends like 'do something else at ??? time'. I'm trying to track down the second part of the quote and who said it.

I tried doing searches and could find nothing.

Do any of you know the source and full text of the quote?

Thanks very much,
muuuuu

vertical line Every breath is determined.
Every thought is determined.
Every decision is determined.
Every condition is determined.
Every movement is determined.
But we cannot fathom the reason...
So, we go about our lives as if we are the choice makers.
Even if we understood the reason why everything is determined it wouldn't make a difference.
We would still live as if we were doing the creating.
In truth, the creating is happening purely due to [That].
And That determines Itself.

If your heart is breaking then it means you still have attachments
From attachments, you have your suffering

No, Zen does not teach us to forget everything.
Just like Zazen is not stopping thoughts.
You only see the surface.

vertical line Everyone must endure in their Truth and your truth is the unconveyable Otherness foreign even to yourself, never familiar therefore it is a non-issue in all eyes big and small.

There is zero style in that which is Nude.

vertical line The layers upon layers of "D's" are self-contained. Whether you are self-contained in thought or self-contained in your activity. It remains self-containment.

Zen wants you out of your self-contained habits. But is it possible?

vertical line You would hope that people would choose leadership who one day understood the dimension of pain. Until then... the endurance test continues.
