Wrong thread, but yup.gif

Hey Shadow, the plot reminds me of the story of Joseph and the coat of many colours.

http://www.paulinegedge.com/12The_Twice_Born.htm

I can't seem to finish a book lately, my mind wanders off onto tangents that, so far, no author can tempt me to stay on theirs.

I am now leafing through Zen Flesh, Zen Bones...a sort of Zen quote tiny booklet - here is a tidbit of this book's offerings.

The Last Will and Testament

Ikkyu, a famous Zen teacher of the Ashikaga era, was the son of the emperor. When he was very young, his mother left the palace and went to study Zen in a temple. In this way Prince Ikkyu also became a student. When his mother passed on, she left with him a letter. It read:

To Ikkyu:

I have finished my work in this life and am now returning into Eternity. I wish you to become a good student and to realize your Buddha-nature. You will know if I am in hell and whether I am always with you or not.

If you become a man who realizes that the Buddha and his follower Bodhidharma are your own servants,you may leave off studying and work for humanity. The Buddha preached for forty-nine years and in all that time found it not necessary to speak one word. You ought to know why. But if you don't and yet wish to avoid thinking fruitlessly.

Your Mother, Not born, not dead, September first.

P.S. The teaching of Buddha was mainly for the purpose of enlightening others. If you are dependent on any of its methods, you are naught but an ignorant insect. There are 80,000 books on Buddhism and if you should read all of them and still not see your own nature, you will not understand even this letter. This is my will and testament.

That's way wrong to turn a trailer park thread into a book club. Just wrong. sad2.gif


Really weird and nice outside. There's no wind, no machines running nor any business open. You hear nothing but spring birds and the occasional passing car. I need to record it.

Now I'll need another shot drinking.gif

US, have you ever read Carlos Castaneda? I think if not, you should. The first is the best, 'The Teachings of Don Juan, A Yaqui Way of Knowledge'. Very spiritual and very interesting.
