  One day a Vinaya master asked a Zen master:
-How should one practice Tao?
The Zen master replied:
-Eat when you are hungry, sleep when you are tired.
The Vinaya master said:
-Most people do that.
The Zen master... continue...

vertical line In most cases your physical body is smarter than you are. Of course in beginning you should listen to your physical body. Which most cases people don't. As your practice develops you can realize that You are smarter than your physical body. Which most people don't get that far into practice. And once you have the mindfulness or the intelligence of mindfulness you move through the practice. As the fruitfulness of practice continues you come to know you are not your physical body including your mind in which the parameters of birth and death no longer compete with your true Self.

vertical line Well I will say this. Spirit must be in total sync with body. No separation for that leads to death. To seek the spirit is to seek death but to seek the flesh is to seek life. But therein lies the seeking. Is the seeking wrong? Yes. Contemplation is hell. Weather body becomes spirit or spirit leaves flesh is redundant to me. I've experienced other lives and experienced death.

Now I explained how animals die and it creates energy to reform but this might not apply to humans.

God is not a object. The attention is the mistake. The curse of humanity. The body is aware is the correction to the mistake. A blessing. All I know. Being fully aware and not focused is beauty.

I listen to what you say. Reality taught me the two above statements not mine.

I know only aware body totally relax the attention. When fully aware I feel like just my body. Perhaps total union of spirit and body. Which I crap contemplated. Life should be apparent. Not deep and obscure.

You are correct. A god. A physical god those false ones who imagined themselves one. Nothing held in the head.

vertical line Hah.

We have to remember world war 3 was the first war. The war before wars. The inner war. It doesn't go away without the cooperation of the teachers of the past, present and future. Those who have spoken intelligently and have lived reasonably. Their shoulder is an arrow pointing to the Spirit of non-war, not a shoulder to lean on. And this is interesting to understand about reincarnation, for it is said there are multiple lives before the impact of realization to occur. What this means for me as when you observe our friends who have no inclination of the Way, if time allowed it, and perhaps it may, it would seem for some of our human family it would take eons to be authentically impacted by a genuine Awakening. In light of this, you should not impose on the person and their wrong views, but patiently contemplate their return home.

Siddhartha said he would not return. Not because he cannot live again being flesh. But I do believe he does not just because of the struggles in our world. A belief. But does fit. So agreed. But with realities correcting words. The body is aware. This shows the physical body which is in truth the physical spirit is automatically aware of reality because of its senses. God did not tell me the spirit is aware. This if perceived as a solid can benefit people. Because it is a dogmatic truth no different then the same sun shines on us all. I cannot find a spirit apart from me. Only an attention looking for one and is our issue. The attention imagining it found one can never work. This is not my body. Its me.

Using zen as a disguise. How quaint.

For everyone else. The physical body that is you let all your energy totally relax. You might be surprised how much you release in the process as well.
