Genjo Koan elucidates something that is not a thing, that exists at the beginning of every present moment just before my perception of myself in that moment. If I could stop my perception before I am aware of it, thereby short-circuiting my own consciousness and abiding in a place where "I" am not yet, then the truth of this koan would be there. Then I could drop it and get on with the day. However, these things are not mine yet, as I am young and foolish, attached to many things. Patience is my only answer.
I did a whole series of sit-a-long talks on Genjo Koan awhile back, now not available. I hope to get them reposted soon. We went through the Genjo step by step, and it is very good to do so.
Jundo please do! I remember listening to them in the archives back in the fall and they were quite helpful! :DQuote:

I especially remembered "the buddhabots", "banned jundo" and such...
