→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: WHAT DO I WANT?
vertical line Posted on Nov.01.2016 @ 09:45PM EDT by so_teh
If you seek something, want anything, here is a method to consider for attaining whatever it may be you desire. Each idea is realized in itself, together they construct the energy needed for getting what you want. You must realize these ideas for yourself for the power to be activated. Consider, meditate on and contemplate these ideas... Here they are:

"With God, all things are possible."


"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens."


"We have what we seek. It is there all the time, and if we give it time it will make itself known to us."


"By believing passionately in something that does not yet exist we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired."


"You are what your deep, driving desire is. As your desire is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny."

vertical line Avisitor,

Since you are the only one who talks accurate and healthy at the forum i have a question for you

first a summary

i discover that zazen is "just sitting"

i know that i should compose an empty mind whole day long

And finally i understand that zazen mind is a kind of headless mind which you don't know anything and expect nothing.

So, in between these three,

just sitting

empty mind

and headless zen

which one should be prior?

.........

I don't know what you know.
Just have my own experiences
Was hoping to find someone who could help me along

Old saying, when chopping wood, chop wood
When hungry, eat

It isn't about an empty mind all day
It is about doing what is needed when it is needed

Just sitting describes what others see
When doing Zazen, Focus of mind
The other state of just sitting .. brings on day dreams and losing oneself

All day should be about awareness and focus
When one's practice follows one into daily life, one lives a fuller life.

Sorry that I can not help.

vertical line So in a nutshell:

1. In your [reality tunnel] experience, what you really want is to define reality for other people.

2. You don't want to be helped along.

3. You're not really sorry about the passive-aggressive bullsh!t.

And

4. You can't want what you want.

vertical line You desire that which you can't have and it makes you miserable. And all that other stuff you desired and which you have got hasn't made you happy. So, you think, eliminate desire and the rabid guilt that attends it, and hey presto, enter the Buddhist's defeatist goal of that state of inert bliss. But what really happens is that the desire increases exponentially.

vertical line The product Christianity sells is forgiveness from sin, and you can't sell that product unless you convince people that they are really sinful.

The product Buddhism sells is freedom from suffering, and you can't sell that product unless you convince people that they are really suffering.

vertical line I have started practicing zazen.that is good.In two weeks time of practicing i have seen that "i should be like an object, a matter or a material" This idea fits well with my nature and i have accept it.Isn't that a buddha statue a matter at the end.So buddha has given me the lesson.that's be like a matter.

Now without getting depart from zazen as though being a matter is already the zazen mind with knowing this; All i'm trying is to activate this approach to spread the whole day.

This work of transition takes my time these days.

this activation should be in activity

vertical line From where did I come to this conclusion?

First in the beginning, it has been told me to empty my mind.I can see this in the beginning of my zazen practice that i need an empty mind to calm down my mind.

second, i have discovered the headless zen.i see that zen requires headlessness.

third, i remember the words 'Zazen is just sitting' and my zazen turns out to just sitting.

You can find these under the topic "Beginning Zazen" which i have noted down as as a zazen diary. http://www.zenguide.com/forum/view.cfm?topicid=9559

When this three match in zazen posture.it was easy to see that "I should be like an item, an object or a matter.

So, now all i wish is to become like a matter.

will inform you from the new developments.

If it is what you think it is then all you'd need do is check your mind at the door, cut your attachment to food, water, air and uh now I think about it you could just go the whole hog, go for the full frontal lobe castration and be done with it/this.
