so, i rang on my doorbell, and a well-known voice answered..
" who is it?"
"hey, bokki, its me, bokki"
"you again?"
" let me in, please."
"no."
Your bokki is pretty nice. My Dan when I knock, sometimes knocks me out. I find myself slumped on the porch of my own house. He is a bit of a bastard that Dan sometimes..

You bokki is sadly mistaken. Letting Dan to sleep on his couch rather than bokki, would do him no good at all. Dan knows his place is sometimes on the doormat (while the dog is warm inside). Bokki's couch would be too good for him.

a student asked the Master:
"Master teach me Zen!"
master:
" hmmm...you know something..."
student:
" What, Master, what??"
master:
" Uhm,... nothing."
The student was greatly enlightened.

from the " Poor men's means to Zen" by Homeless P. Ark

But no thought is your own, so where does the bother come from?

Life - energy - is universal, hence there's no such thing as your or my mind. Eventhough in relation to a body the support for life in a physical manifested form drains and weakens, it's just natural. Getting too old to be excited about "life" anyway, it's just a natural process, yet nothing lost.

random notes; we once had a "movie" thread where we saw "zen" in movies, I saw the lickerish quartet a few weeks ago. Great stuff, really got me into "the zone" If you didn't know any better you'd thought it to be an erotic film, but it's really not. The "erotic" sphere is just a prop for a deeper story.

Currently watching Hunters (2020) great series also.
One of the few times I'm "tested" by watching nazi scum, brings back memories of hundreds if not thousands of hours watching nazi documentries.

also just finished ep 2/4 of "unabomber in his own words" great theme song I must say, I love deep "mono" male singing


speaking of man, the most sold costume for dutch carnival was the corona virus outfit, apparently others ppl misery is something to have fun with, also jews with big noses and money bills is also consideres just "fun" in the parades, ah well that's enough randomness for now.

Difference in thinking i've.Is universal universal?
I guess there is more than universe in this universe.i mean not everything is universe.
It may have an individual self.or chi.
As the universe you have an individual chi or life energy.
This universal term doesn't seem much likely a zen approach.
Zen is much likely about the progress of your personal progress.
Whether you bind it to the universe or not.
Universal is different, chi is different, zen is difeerent in this sense.
May be you have a universal zen chi.that would be totally different. :jump1:
May be the universe itself is nothing but a chi.

Yesterday, i met with a friend at the bar.
He was just talking too much.
Today i need to do an urgent zazen to gather my mind together again.:)

There are two ways.Spirituality and materiality.
It isn't surprising that spirituality starts with 'don't know'.

I'm not a social animal, I blame zazen for wasting 30 years listening to ppl for hours and hours to no avail, these days I just tell them honestly if I'm not interested in listening to a certain narrative. The idea that it's emphatic to listen to ppl is overrated, most just abuse your time and patience and you become their go to guy for playing a broken record.

Anyways with universal I meant that the same life flows through all, or we could say the consciousness in you, me, a mosquito, a god etc is not different, you can travel anywhere but you wont find a location to consciousness, hence it's universal, only due to false identification to a body or particulair does the idea of individuality come into play. Hence the irony of an individual or person looking for awakening or liberation, it's exactly that which is covering their original nature, in a dream a ghost is chasing a mirage. The idea of not being an individual or eliminating something which only exists in one's imagination is equally comical, hence all ideas are false, anything in the zen theme park too. Words function in relation, so no idea of universal is valid, yet it can function temporarely to investigate the fabrication of an individual, like a thorn to remove a thorn, afterwards throw both thorns away, all ideas are thorns.

But perhaps I'm like that friend in the bar now.

Do you know what did he do?
He took out a bottle of whiskey inside his jacket.And try to drink it there.
The owner who is the barman also drove him out.

Yeah, they don't like that, for good reasons.
sometimes in the winter only when it's freezing, I sit outside at a beach restaurant and order a coffee, but in the water bottle for my bike I have a little whiskey, everyone is inside the restaurant for warmth but I stay outside where ppl usually only sit in the summer with coffee and a lil bit of home whiskey, the owner doesn't mind, as long as I order coffee.

Some "friends" can give you headaches with certain behaviour, no doubt.
