Thread: 'Sit-a--Long' Suggestion Box

    'Sit-a--Long' Suggestion Box

    John from Downunder had a very nice idea:

    How about a suggestion box for themes to cover on the 'Sit-a-Long' talks on the blog?

    http://blog.beliefnet.com/treeleafzen/

    I can't promise that I can cover everything, but 'tis a great idea. So, let's keep this pinned here, and folks can drop a suggested topic in the box at any time.

    Gassho, Jundo

    Re: 'Sit-a--Long' Suggestion Box

    Thank you for this thread. I think this is a good idea and I'm grateful that you're receptive to it.

    As an aside, I often have questions that arise from things you speak about during the video. I certainly don't want to bog you down with silly questions that pop in my head as I'm listening to you. However, I've had a couple of questions that seem like they're actually fairly decent. Is there a good place to pose those questions? (I think the answer is "THIS FORUM, DUMMY!" but I just want to make sure.)

    Jundo how about a talk on letting go?
    i mean that i sometimes notice that people are looking at things black and white and miss the point

    maybe a talk on how it is to live life as a lay buddhist and yet letting go of everything yet still holding enough to stay part of the world and that it really isnt escape.

    Gassho, Dojin.

    Hi Jundo,

    Another suggestion... Here's the topic.

    "All distinctions are falsely imagined"

    I read the quote in a book by Christmas Humphreys (a student of D.T. Suzuki). My initial reaction to such a sweeping statement was disbelief however I've heard you say (as a very quick aside) that there's "no you and no me". Perhaps you can give us some insights into the topic sometime.

    Take it back to the old school, the Buddha-bot talk.
