This is just a very short and crisp extract of the start of a talk from Claude Anshin Thomas. War veteran of Vietnam, he often talks about how he used to kill with great glee and was filled with anger, fear and will to destroy. He is now a simple priest and teacher, student of Glassman. Please, listen to what he says, listen to what he says about awakening because this is so important, and listen where it all comes from. Why do we hear words? Where do they come from?
In my next vid I will pick up Genjokoan again and talk about awakening as non intoxication,no exctasy and not knowing. This is a very touching introduction to my modest talk. I really like the guy.
