  A monk came to say good bye to Ch'an master Niaowo (Bird's Nest). He said:
-Thank you, Sir, for everything you've done for me. Now I got to go.
Niaowo asked:

vertical line I got 99 problems and being trapped in a decaying body in a money hungry society on a dying planet in a mysterious dimension may be one.

vertical line No. It started 10,000 years ago with our aware race being indoctrinated in the attention dogma.

The physical body is automatically aware of reality. Let it totally relax the attention so it releases.

Does anyone disagree that body is automatically aware of reality without and effort?

vertical line You dont understand your physical body is automatically aware of reality around it?

Do you need to pay attention to your food in order to taste it? Or do you automatically taste it?

vertical line Phil....psst psst. The attention is just a imagined thought. Forget it. Psst psst. If it feels like focused energy that's your imagination creating and focusing nervous energy?

No or yes? Even though its in zen teachings.

But why should I? Have I typed anything wrong?

That which is automatically aware of reality is you.

What is wrong with this statement?

vertical line Our physical structure and dna is more determined by being the energy of our spirit prior to it becoming flesh and living. Your physical being is a totally unique DNA structure. They say families inherit diseases down through the bloodline. Not true at all. Either a person in that family is going against the noosphere or a past relative did. So it punishes all. More population control and a excuse to make it seem like the real god has punished us.

Because we are physical spirits or spirit made flesh it is those who fear death and also cannot remember past lives because the narrow minded attention blocks it who have no faith in reality to always allow those who desire life to live again.

I existed as a slumbering spirit of vast relaxed formless energy for close to a 1000 years. Awakening slightly at times and creating new philosophy. I did not want to exist physically again. I enjoyed death. It was utterly peaceful. But this can be attained in this life by letting the physical body totally relax and it will once a person abandons the forced attention. But reality told me he is not a object. Still I barely stirred. Then I heard the cries of children. The only reason I came to exist again physically.

If it means going against any false institution or adults teaching the doctrine of attention to these children naturally aware of reality I will. To mar our children with our false ideals of reality is wrong.

We all have been wrong. Including me.

vertical line Yeah, Hello? Uh, if you’re there pick up, okay listen it’s Alan calling, Alan from Earth. You probably don’t remember, it’s over in the western spiral of the Milky Way although obviously you might have named it after a completely different brand of chocolate. Basically just find the Oort Cloud and ask for directions from there. Anyway just calling to catch up. We’re doing alright with the carbon base lifeform thing. Kids are diversifying nicely, going through a bit of a fad for spines and brains at the minute but it’s probably the same where you are. Well, that’s about it really, we just hadn’t heard from you in a while, like when we killed Michael Rennie or Klaatu, as you knew him in The Day The Earth Stood Still. So if you received this, get in touch, but actually thinking about it, don’t bother calling after about, what, 2150, because I’m not expecting anyone to be in. Oh and I’m sending this song along it’s called God Song by Robert Wyatt. I hope you like it. And that you don’t communicate through perfume or minor variatrions in your sense of balance or something. Okay, you take care and I’ll talk to you soon. Love you, Bye.

vertical line Total abrupt physical change not resembling modern humans? Its already done. Only stress disallows completion. Not my fault per say. Those mad scientists who study the noosphere formerly called Mara is what stresses mankind.

Here's the thing. You imagine the sun as millions of miles away. When it is just right up there. Floating and moving and small and not that hot. This imagined reality is ego to see it as millions of miles away.

I was present when they shot our midnight sun we call the moon now with missiles. The sky did fall that day. Resulting in half a sun. Proven the very nature of the moon gives off heat. Our moon is generally bigger then our sun. Those giant super moons. The moon is closer. I've seen it a mere mile above the ground once.

vertical line Phil equats nmarri poster on here. I fiqured either you or so teh. I knew from first post. Its your way of imagining your teaching me a lesson like I don't listen somehow. I don't need to listen. Others do. I'm not here to debate Phil. I'm like a rock. I type proclamations of truth and our real history. Zen was formulated on being strong against Mara. Realizing through either direct observation that mere imagination focuses on the breath or mushin which is non attention and being aware with body. Mushin meditation for the select few.

I know Siddhartha's methods. He was my friend. He does not want to return because of Mara. I was old man hotei. Yep. Makes total sense. He loved children too according to history.

This type of gibberish talk they use in zen to of course. Its to lead the mind from mere words to direct observation of the non verbal reality. But you do not understand this. In the nonverbal reality no spirit is found. Just the physical essence. In the nonverbal reality the attention is witnessed as imagination. Focused imagination. So. You do NOT know.

This physical being is absolute total proof and truth beyond words.
