If an oak tree in the garden falls down, and no mirror can be found to reflect it, does it make the sound of one hand?
"The Way needs no cultivation, just do not defile. What is defilement? When with a mind of birth and death one acts in a contrived way, then everything is a defilement. If one wants to know the Way directly: Ordinary Mind is the Way!"

Well at least it can no longer deceive :lol:
[SPOILER]
Once a monk asked Master Nanyue, “If a bronze mirror is melted down and cast into an image, where does the bright reflection go?”
The master said, “Venerable, your face when you were a child and hadn't yet left home – where has it gone?”
The monk said nothing. Then after a pause he asked, “After the image is completed, how come it doesn't reflect and illuminate any more?”
The master said, “Although it doesn't appear to reflect and illuminate, it's not deceiving you.”

Yes, some people no doubt take their koan practice differently than you take your non-koan practice.
Well there's the rub, differences are never in opposition, some people make a koan out of that ironically.

(my, have you ever got the wrong end of the stick, there).

My teachers could be stern, but not heartless, not cold. After passing a koan, we could both laugh.

Of course, then there's the next koan. Back to work.

How nice, I'm keeping Meido's sent autographed debut book with your card in the same "envelope"
Oh I remember you inquired "do you see what I see"
Well it's not what or who we look at or from is it? [/retoric]

Marcel, good to see you. And to see you posting. Glad you're in touch with Meido. He might not like my "tomato to Meido", though; don't tell him.

Brunch, or elevenses coming up here soon. Let's go to the Automat and get a couple of sandwiches out of prison.

I won't, you never have to tell me who's a guest at a family diner ;)

19:15 here Joe, and funny-syncrothingy enough again I already unlocked the oven moments ago and the french fries are baking (they are dutch "grandpa's" fries, which are a bit slimmer then "grandma's" fries) ofcourse with vegan mayo.
Bon appétit!

ps it appears the imagined end of a cul de sac is the opening of the oven, I could take a picture for reference but no time for photoshopping now unless I want black fries.

What's the function of posting a video of someone struggling with mental illness and who commited suicide?
I don't get it.
