A few other questions popped into my head. I'd like to put it out to Jundo and everyone who is semi-interested.
- Is it the case that "enlightenment" or kensho experiences are where the left side of the brain is not accessed by will and thereby one is able to see through the ego and how it operates. Thereby one can see how the ego construct in and of itself is not true but a means to interact with the world.
- Zazen/meditation is a tool used to enable the right side of the brain to fully function without false information coming from the left side or not believing the interpretation of the information the left side of the brain presents (through the ego construct).
Is it the aim of practice to some degree to then apply mindfullness as much is practible in each individual's capacity to be centred and not believe the interpretation of information the left side of the brain submits and simultaneously (without effort) function in the world using the left side of the brains capabilities. Is this what Master Seung Sahn means he says "when you eat, just eat. When you sleep just sleep...all the time keeping the don't know mind".
Another interpretation. Is the aim of zazen/medtiation to let go in the sense when Ajan Chah said "If you let go a little, you will have a little peace. If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace. If you let go completely, you will have complete peace." That is this the being able to see reality using the right side of the brain without interpretations from the left side of the brain. So you let go of that which is false and try to act wholesomely knowing what is true or act in the "dharma/dhamma".
