  Do not go after the past,
Do not lose yourself in the future.
For the past no longer exists,
And the future is not yet here.
By looking deeply at things just as they are,
In this moment, here and now,
The seeker... continue...

INWARD VIEW AND OUTWARD VIEW
To cling to onself as Buddha, oneself as Ch'an or the way,
making that an understanding, is called clinging to the inward view.

Attainment by causes and conditions, practice and realization,
making this an understanding, is called clinging to the outward view.

Master Pao-chi said, "The inward view and the outward view are both mistaken.

Called no attention. Yep.

vertical line OBJECTIVITY AND SUBJECTIVITY
Things have never declared themselves empty, nor have they declared
themselves form; and they have not declared themselves right, wrong,
defiled or pure. Nor is there a mind that binds and fetters people.
It is just because people themselves give rise to vain and arbitrary
attachments that they create so many kinds of opinions, and give rise
to many various likes and fears.
Just understand that things do not originate of themselves. All of them
come into existence from your own single mental impulse of imagination
mistakenly clinging to appearances.
If you know that mind and objects fundamentally do not contact each other,
you will be set free on the spot. Everything in a state of quiescence right
where it is; this is the very site of enlightenment.

No mind and objects. Yep.

vertical line When Gensha Shibi, a Chinese Zen master, and a general were eating cakes together,
the general asked:
- What is it that's used everyday but not known?
The master handed a piece of cake to the general and said:
- Eat this piece of cake.
The general ate the piece of cake, then repeated the question.
The master said:
-That's what's used everyday but not known.

The generals physical being and not known because we are to busy asking questions with insecure attention like that whats used everyday but not known. The Buddha body aware of eating the cake.

Don't paste conflicting zen teachings. Not all have understanding.

vertical line Let your focused nervous energy totally relax. Your physical being is the untrying aware natural state that is the Buddha. These proclamations are true and are the gift of security given by reality. Known because its a reality and its OK to know. Those desiring to keep straining and focusing their nervous system energy in a fear of letting it settle have not experienced natural awareness enough. If you do not know of this direct realization you cannot speak of it. To talk against it or imagine reality talking to me is some sort of delusion just because a person fears talking to reality is not attacking my self. Its saying reality is not alive and real. So it is a wrong debate directed at god. When a person is still within and experience natural physical aware being there desire to be this way will surpass the ego/attention. This doctrine of awareness will become a very desired state. An enforced one is redundant. In truth the forced one is the doctrine of attention upon society. It has been for over 10,000 years. Why would a person to be like a focused nervous animal? Even the best pet can never be fully trusted. Humans are the same. Forming going from a peaceful false pretense to a insecure rage. How many times must we witness this to see its wrong. Those with natural awareness can be relaxed or angry or sad. They can be in a rage. But the natural emotions are not perplexed by a insecure attention. In our society hatred and anger are looked upon as not controlling yourself. But it is OK. My pure hate is justified on all levels. If I get angry I want to. Period. Humanity once remembering their past lives will also have total justification of their anger. Something I can't control. But I sure do endorse it for those in the know of what they have done to humanity.

vertical line "But first thou must tear off from thee the cloak which thou dost wear - the web of ignorance, the ground of bad, corruption's chain, the carapace of darkness, the living death, sensation's corpse, the tomb thou carriest with thee, the robber in thy house, who through the things he loveth, hateth thee, and through the things he hateth, bears thee malice."

vertical line Rarely I'm angry. Its a emotion. Your imagination is labeling me. Isn't it? Admit to to your self. No Phil. A big NO. Do not try at all. Your physical being is automatically aware of reality. Let your focused nervous system energy totally relax by not trying.

You do not know of this so can not speak of it. The body is aware. Realities spoken message of salvation to give stability and security to mankind versus the insecure attention.

So Phil you label me wrong with Mr. Angry with your imagination and have yet to see the body is aware with realization and you are totally against gods words of salvation?

Way to go Phil.

vertical line In what aspect you never say save call names? You are a little child. Worse. Children will say your fat. Your saying nothing except contradiction for the sake of it. So Phil do you deny nature which is part of god has created you? Did nature create you?
