TEACHING
Posted on May.17.2009 @ 11:05PM EDT by chontri

Someone suggested that CT might be as a teacher, CT does not think that is a good idea at all.
However, today CT run out of things to do, therefore, he pretends himself
as a fake teacher and is going to give some teaching. If anyone would like to hear,
please come.

Here starts the teaching:
-Listen attentively.
And here ends the teaching:
-Listen attenively.

If anyone came and heard, now please be back where you are.
If you stand too long, you will get tired.

Take a good care of yourself.

Visitor 1:
What am I listening to, and why?

CT:
┬░Oh! Master Zen, if one has been so busy with mastering his Zen, with mastering the undisciplined mind, and the consciousness. How could he do just litsening? Listening without a "what" or a "why"?

Visitor 1:
OK, I will listen.

CT:
If so, it might be said, again, today's teaching is done.

There would be no yesterday's or tomorrow's, because today encompasses yesterday and tomorrow.

Listening with heedfulness is "today" or the timeless "now".

Heedfulness is like the flame that burns all of what were accumulated from the past to the future at the moment of just-listening and leave no ashes.

Take care,

Visitor 2:
tickle, tic, tickle,... tickle, (sound, sounds, more sound), then from out of nowhere.

tickle, tickle, tic... tickle, tic... (I wander in the same place, in the same way. (but this is only talk, and the other I can only feel, until I heard you say, "listen in this way").

CT & Visitors 05/15/04 & 05/17/2009
