to see the Zen master and study Zen with him. The monk said to Gensha:
-I am a new comer, please be kind to tell me where I can enter the Zen gate.
Gensha... continue...

TWO KINDS OF HURT
When one's body gets hurt, it feels that hurt. That is its intelligence.

When one's mind gets hurt, it suffers from that hurt. That is its ignorance.

Lehish:

mr chontri

there are people which so much trauma, the current memory, or not remembered, the suffering so great, they don't care if is ignorance, though would agree with which you posted since they intellectually understand is ignorance...the suffering is so intense they cannot calm enough to look, listen, try meditation methods...lehish talks with these people when they paining...they didn't any warm caring people to assist when they were little child....they need warmth and encouragement...they need to cry, maybe scream

" ......... Ms. Lehish, When your body or someone else's got hurt, whether it is little or really big, the body's intelligence would know what to do to help itself, such as weeping, crying or screaming...or even asks for help from others such as doctors and medicine. If nothing could help at all, then it would know where it will go. If you or someone else are in a comma or in a similar condition, anyone who is available will take care of it.

The same with the mind and its ignorance.

......... Lehish: thanks responding

maybe lehish didn't word clearly

" ......... ChonTri: No problem at all, Ms. Lehish.

" ......... Lehish: ok
