vertical line Every created thing is like
A dream, an illusion, a bubble,
A dewdrop, a flash of lightning.
View all created things like this.

Just a suggestion you might want to take.

Reality, truth and freedom I think both are shadows of each other.(These are my words)


I was thinking this for a little while.And was finally made it in order.

vertical line Now examine this for a closer look:

Reality
Ordinary People Affairs
Give up becoming this or that.

We can be sure that if, on sesshin, a student were to come into dokusan with a report of having had a "visitation", the teacher would almost certainly say:

"Good; this kind of makyo (illusion) is a sign that your zazen is becoming deeper. Just ignore all illusions.Now, back to the Ch'an hall with you, and continue your practice! "

Better to wake up, than to have private visitations, I mean. Otherwise, one feels oneself privileged, or "chosen", or special (I've never trusted or respected self-proclaimed "prophets"). And, one feels oneself to be an "I", and a very favored one, at that.  Well, awakening would be my preference, instead. "Visitations" seem part-and-parcel of odd psychological states, while awakening is the most ordinary yet wonderful openness and being-present, while adding nothing, naming nothing, and lacking nothing.

I'm telling that when you're clean, you're clean. Not a mosquito. There's just original nature. No mays or mights, and no "cans" of turtle soup, ...nor hot or cold, thick or wishy-washy Vichyssoise


I got this not from another forum.
This countervail the "Reality" concept.

vertical line Freedom
I Think Everyone Knows What Is Freedom

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

Purity has no form

The mind is then expansive like the clear blue sky through which clouds form and pass and clear continually.

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

-No earthly ties


This countervail the "Freedom" concept
