View Full Version : My (Ex-)Cancer Ango - 12 - Alive! (A New Year Message)

I will pause (but not quite stop) this "Cancer Ango" now as the doctors tell me that I am, in all likelihood, cancer free following my surgery ... but I only pause it. Tomorrow, next year or maybe years from now, it is bound to resume again, as this or some other illness or accident. Such is our life. It will get me and all of us sometime, someway. Yippee!! [claps] I am good with it.

But, for today at least, one more spin around the sun commences. We are alive!

Today, for the New Year, I reflect on the year past, the ups and downs, make predictions for the year to come and the years after. I can't be wrong. My predictions are guaranteed to be 100% right, no question.

Further, let us note that which is beyond all time and change and sickness and health and loss and gain, ups and downs, namely, our Zazen ...

... Buddha. Such is Right, no question. Such is beyond all passing years.

So ... Happy New Year to All!

Gassho, Jundo

Thank you, Jundo Roshi for bringing us along with you on this Ango. We all have various sorts of "Ango" we will experience and move through in our lives, and too many dwell on such negatively, or morbidly. You have always taught by your living, positively and joyfully. Thank you. Gassho, Gassho Gassho.

I only managed to view half of the video, as I am traveling, but I will catch up and sit along later.

I am so glad you can rest cancer free at this time, Jundo. Let's all enjoy life. Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding!

Some poetry to celebrate this:

Well now, I get low and I get high
And if I can't get either, I really try
Got the wings of heaven on my shoes
I'm a dancin' man and I just can't lose
You know it's all right, it's okay
I'll live to see another day
We can try to understand
The New York Times' effect on man

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin'
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive

Gassho,

Kirk

Such joy to hear your message but more so to see your renewed energy. I know what it took to give your new years teaching having been there. Go get rest, hold your family, and peace for this coming year.

Jundo, I returned to treeleaf for a brief visit and saw that you were in a title bout with cancer. I followed your My Cancer Ango videos in numerical sequence and see where you’ve won this bout. Great fight and super teaching. Talk the talk and walk the walk! My deepest respect for your effort. Stay Well! gassho Shogen
