One day Yao-shan Wei-yen (750-834), one of the well-known Chinese Ch'an master, was asked by the host of the monastery to give his sermon to the assembly who for a long while was expecting his teaching. Yao-shan said: "Strike the bell."
WE ALSO ARE
the d.o.m.: We also are when we're free from thoughts. When we are free from thoughts, the world was made of them will fall away from us like yellow leaves from their branches.
Trouble or happiness is no longer problem. All now is tranquility and quietness. The Realm of Dream!
shayne: yep...that too.
lehish: the berries weren't completely thawed.
the d.o.m.: -Berries sweeties, why weren't you completely thawned so that Ms Lehish could have a bite? -When we were completely thawned, we are berries, and when we were not completely thawned, we also are berries. If she would like to have a bite as she wanted, she got to wait. -How long should she wait? -As long as until when we are completely thawned.
lehish: melted eating :)
asheera: Eat me, Lehish.
Lionel: ...alone, yet we are together...... & never part for a single moment...
Master Zen: oh c'mon lionel, no more of that complicated zen talk.
Zorbas: I do not understand why you call this the realm of dream?
Zorbas: Dreams are illusions!
rom Zorbas: So is this statement!
Lionel: From Master Zen oh c'mon lionel, no more of that complicated zen talk

zbishak: Thinking so, Saying so. and insisting on it, may be.
Zorbas: I don't knoe if your spr=eaking at me. But I'm not sure what is real or illusion! I'm sorry good fellow :-(
zbishak: Hello zorba, No, unless your useing the Nom de Plume Shayne, And then it would be with you rather than at you. Keep well.
Zorbas: Hello Zbish, It always "at you" when talking with others. Well, most others. What does one do with nothing to prove?
zbishak: I dont know, In emptyness or the 'whole' nothing is absent. Nothing hasn't got one to prove any thing.
Zorbas: Yeah, pretty cool way to live. As long as on keeps his feet out of the fires!
