    Thank you.
    Will sit as always with the recording, because of the timezone.
    But this old guy is already waiting for me.

    Hi all,

    I'm not really sure why we could not live-stream last Friday. I've re-synced the zoom and youtube accounts, so hopefully it will work. But if not, Jundo or I will post a recording after the Zazenkai.

    See you all soon!

    It looks like it worked this week! Anyone who wants to join one-way via youtube, the embedded video at the top of the thread should work at the top of the hour.

    Wonderful words this morning Jundo - Daruma-licious!

    That poignant pause following 'no life, no death' (paraphrase) kicked me over the edge of the cliff of conceptions, free-falling headlong into the inky black maze of mind/no mind/don't mind.

    The depth of stillness was 'fathomless' yet contained within a pin-prick! Marvellous!


    Gassho,
