Aware physical body that already exists let your focused nervous system energy totally relax.

The aware physical body that exists is your Buddha nature.

According to Buddha, one is not the body nor is one this mind.

The body is in truth the living spirit. It is what we are when not trying at all. A Buddha can be wrong if he is no Buddha. Not all philosophy is correct. To be or not to be. Yet you exist? Don't be lost in mere philosophy. For I am not correct. What is is. You cannot change it. Neither can I. For I am no god. I cannot create a single blade of grass. I can only know truth not mine. I am like a fish in the ocean. But aware and not focused. It don't matter if I know. I am.

vertical line The body is not body. Its life. Those that argue against don't see it as life. So yes. Totally and dogmatic and absolute your body is life. The living spirit. If you see other your lost in the philosophy of attention to irrelevant detail. For I exist and no mere Buddha can change this. I live. I aware. I am.

vertical line There is nothing wrong with total dogmatic absolute truth. It makes you solid. Like a rock. Those not desiring solidness are wishy washy. For the same sun shines on us all. Total dogmatic absolute truth.

vertical line I think Bob, is right.

He is approaching from a beginner perspective and trying to be helpful.

As i'm a beginner; when i first tried zazen (afew months ago for a short time) i had convinced that i've to be a matter or material.

Beyond he is encouraging he has truths by my side.

I think i need Bob here but not sure for the forum.

And as a note: We shouldn't disregard this golden rule of Buddhism
"accept everything as it is",

we could have all different paths so may all different views but this doesn't make us wrong.

generally speaking this is what makes the path beautiful.

I'm behind you Bob.

Very much so trying to speak with beginners in mind and totally desiring to help on every level.

No. Don't stand behind me. Next to me. See the truth beyond what you desire. To be solid.

Everyone tends to be on a self created path. I cannot have a viewpoint if attention is simply relaxed energy. So the true path is none. At the spot. Drinking tea.

Not relying on what we think we know to be true but seeing the truth of reality and ourselves makes one grounded in reality which is truth. You become solid like a rock. No single word will change the fact I'm alive and reality exists.
