vertical line About Reality Truth Freedom
which I have told some before;

What do we mean by no-thought?
to keep your nature pure,
Those who understand the teaching of no-thought penetrate the ten thousand teachings.
Those who understand the direct teaching of no-thought reach the stage of enlightenment.

An old monk hardly has room for himself
Much less for a visiting cloud-

Purity has no form
The mind is then expansive
like the clear blue sky
through which clouds form
and pass and clear continually

vertical line - Breathing (mindfully) enhances your life today.

- Sitting (still) realizes the magnificence of the cosmos.

- Walking (solo) clears the mind; the ancient purpose of meditation.

vertical line The mind is grass and tree

What does it mean?
Intellectually, it means all that is perceived and thought up is part of the mind
Can one let go of this mind and perceive through our nature?

vertical line Spend a day by yourself in your room.

You will hate yourself,
you will love yourself,
you will scare yourself,
you will make yourself laugh,
you will stress yourself out,
you will get bored with yourself,
you will lose yourself,
you will find yourself,
you will think of yourself,
you will think of others,
you will judge yourself,
you will entertain yourself,
you will deceive yourself,
you will encourage yourself,
you will tire yourself,
you will wake yourself,
you will fall asleep,
you will argue with yourself,
you will talk to yourself,
you will confuse yourself,
you will fight with yourself,
you will restore yourself,
you will create yourself,
you will destroy yourself.

And all of that is not you
It is only what you think of yourself
That is what you go through while looking for yourself
I have searched myself and found nothing that I can call myself

To summarise: you're trolling a zen forum because you hate the cats who are trying to kill you with brain damage and because you hate the Turkish people. And you have become the enemy of the Turkish people and will never, ever forgive the people or the cats never ever. You didn't choose this, it was chosen for you and ... ... Please don't elaborate.
