    This happened while in zazen

    While sitting today I tried to find me.

    But there was nothing to be found.

    As a novice priest-in-training, this is simply an expression of my opinion. Please take it with a grain of salt.

    Sekishi,
    It is interesting that you say this can be a "relief". That word often comes to mind when I try to think of what zazen is. It's a relief. A relief of not having to prop up and constantly support this made up concept, this self invention, this cockamamie idea of what I sometimes think self is.

    I find it to be truly a relief. This is not mine, this I am not, this is not myself,
    yet I exist.

    Yesterday, upon the stair,
    I met a man who wasn't there!
    He wasn't there again today,
    Oh how I wish he'd go away!

    Hi Kyonin

    While browsing the forum I found you.
    While sitting I lost myself,
    and no-one could be found.
    And yet....

    While sitting with the cloud of experience, a thought rang clear as a bell: This is not me, this is not mine.
