Thread: Zen Conjugations

  1. #1

    Zen Conjugations

    We talked about non-dual philosophy and digging through different traditions and such and it got me thinking. We are always examining what we are doing and whether or not it is in keeping with Zen and enlightenment and the buddhadharma. Maybe we should just BE with it. To conjugate

    I AM digging
    You ARE digging
    He/ she/ it IS digging

    The same can be said for sitting. This form of BE isn't just the present tense of the act of doing, but litterally losing ones self, fully "grocking " the act until you ARE the act. Maybe that's the key and when we can do this, we can say "I AM living "

    Just a thought......

    I think you are overthinking this.

    If everything is connected ... WE are living ... WE are sitting. Conjugation creates duality.

    I do that sometimes. My point is to remember that all the digging and reading and talking is, or perhaps should be a prelude to being wholey what you are right then and there
