    It all begins when we say, I. Everything that follows is illusion.

    Taigu,
    Thank you. And you take great care as well.

    Edited: second listening - what an amazing talk - speaks to my own experience. The present is chaotic but inspiring - I will take my place with the artists and fools!

    Listening is as important as talking - thank you for giving me an opportunity to listen.

    Deep bows
    Yugen

    The idea that people (and as far as I 'm concerned if I think of new boss in interview), want to meet the past "me" is so true.

    Powerful teaching.

    Thank you Taigu.

    Now on to the zafu.

    Thank you Taigu.
    Sometimes I had so much expectations that I didn't start at all. Because I knew reality would really frustrate me. Perhaps that was a waste of opportunities to meet reality and learn something from it...

    Thanks for the reminder Taigu to have no expectations! They still hang around but I don't let them in as much.

    I am embarassed to realize that, at least recently, I have been justifying now with the future. Perhaps this is even more abstract than the past, since I have been living with events that haven't occurred in any sense. Of course this will happen again but, for now, it is dropped. Thank you, Taigu.

    Gassho,
    Shujin

    Shujin, no embarassement needed. Great joy to see you realizing that. Whan it comes again, and it will, just drop it.
