  Chang-ch'o, an educated man, once asked the Chinese Ch'an master Chih-t'sang:
-Is there paradise or hell?
Chih-t'sang replied:
-No.
Chang-ch'o protested:
-That is not correct. When I was studying under the priest... continue...

vertical line Posted on Apr.08.2019 @ 04:01PM EDT by Bobwidget
The physical body is me which is in truth the spirit. Body and its five senses automatically exist. This awake being is automatically aware of reality without any effort at all. Not focusing energy body will totally relax without trying at all.

My dumbed down simple version to totally clarify.

vertical line The attention is the imagination focusing our somatic nervous system energy. Imagined with humanity and not our natural state. Taught to us and replicated. Animals have a natural attention. Used for survival for lack of imagination and intellect to live. This imagined attention is humanities major issue. Everything from deep contemplation which is hell to causing headaches and back aches to insanity. You cannot be insecure if you create no attention. Once this imagined attention is no more it won't interfere with your preexisting natural state which is salvation/enlightenment/original state.

vertical line Emptiness is the stage of humor and happiness. You should understand that emptiness is [nothing] to get bent out of shape about because there is no shape to emptiness.

vertical line Emptiness is a mute point. Illogical and not understood well by many. Emptiness means to me no created imagination held unto. A focused attention. Imagined awareness.

Physical body let focused energy totally relax. You cannot use imagination to do it because it caused the creation of focused energy/attention in the first place. Don't consider focused energy or stress yours per say. Focused somatic nervous system in one thing. Stress is pent up dense energy needing to be released.

Done correctly you will be your totally relaxed physical body without any effort at all. Why? Because your not focusing energy. It means not focusing energy and you will be physically relaxed. Its almost a anti energy thing.
