Thanks Fuki, sounds about right, but I'm not sure what you mean by "change on thing completely." Are you saying that I should focus on renouncing one thing at a time? Or that I should acquire new habits, or otherwise change my life in some small way one at a time?
Just do something different and see/witness, I don't know you, I mean I sometimes drag friends outside here when I see they're overthinking everything but I don't know you in that way, I know it won't help much to say "all their problems were conceptual" hence I drag them outside with the birds and the bees (wind, sky etc) it occured to me wondering only leads to more wondering, and questions lead to more questions, all the stuff you've read and know must bloom somewhere ;)

ps I'm just talking as if I were you, but you got that right, just sharing, I don't know what's right or wrong here :hatsoff:

ps I couldn't resist, too "funny" a moment. :hatsoff:

Desire is like the knotted wood of the forest
It cannot be made into planks, beams or into cradles;
He who cut and telled it,
Will burn it into ashes.

What a beautiful place Guo Gu has made there, Fuki.
Joe,

Speaking of Guo - "it's all Gut"

I have some Meido news too from a silly social platform; :D
"A bit early to announce this, but good news: I've signed a contract with Shambhala Publications for my second book. The working title is "Hidden Zen."

I had originally thought to do a book on the psycho-physical methods of what in Zen we call "direct pointing," i.e. practices that can help one to experience clarity, enter samadhi, and arrive at awakening. I had thought to do a third, later book examining inherited methods of training the breath and internal energetic cultivation.

"Hidden Zen," however, will combine both of those subjects into one volume. On many points they are related, so it makes sense. The title says "Hidden" because these things have been mostly transmitted orally.

Stay tuned...it will be a bit over a year in the production pipeline. But am happy to see this moving forward...

Thank you, Marcel/Fuki! You are a jewel.

And thanks to Meido, you are a gem!

Wait, who's Who, here?

Ah, one gem; one jewel. One Pearl,

Encouragement to all:

Always be breaking new ground, ...no matter how many times it's been broken before.

This goes for physical-practice (maybe especially), but as well as for other sorts you may "imagine".

Right, I'm a Buddhist Yoga teacher since 1980, and see "things" in a bodily light. See what you can see,
