Monk In The World

To be a monk is to have time to practice for your transformation and healing. And after that to help with the transformation and healing of other people.

Not Knowing Is Most Intimate

I have been reading comments related to a couple of post by Dosho Port over at WildFox Zen. I have come to appreciate my ignorance about the subject matter. It is freeing not to have to get into the fray (which is a healthy fray, by the way) and just go back to the cushion and sit.
I am capable of such frays when it comes to Christian theology and quite often enjoy a good debate about the "God" thing, along with a sip of single malt scotch.
But this place of not knowing truly is most intimate.


To carry yourself forward and experience myriad things is delusion. That myriad things come forth and experience themselves is awakening.
