the internet is very dangerous, especially concerning buddhism. several times i've come across all these buddhist concepts that i haven't heard of in zen and i wonder if i'm missing something. i think i'm learning to give that up thanks to the kind folks here and jundo. however, i do have more of an intellectual question for y'all.
i've come across this idea of the unconditioned mind or the deathless. is this what jundo means when he discussed the blue sky and all the clouds are thoughts feelings etc.? i've also heard that we humans like to get really involved with our thoughts. in my case, i've been trying to think myself through buddhist practice which is actually causing more suffering. so is nature of mind that which is not caught up in thoughts/feelinlgs, or anything?
just some thoughts.
