    Belief and intellectual understanding help to frame our practice and keep us on the right path so that we can know truth through direct experience. Two sides of the coin, if you will...

    Trust in the teachings
    Maintain belief
    But keep on sitting

    I am a novice priest-in-training. Anything what I say must not be considered as teaching
    and should be taken with a 'grain of salt'.

    I am a novice priest. Any resemblance my posts may have to actual teachings about the Dharma, living or dead, is purely coincidental (and just my attempt to be helpful).

    That which is, which I know is there
    I can't know for sure, and that's not fair
    But I can sit on a mat
    Toward a wall in my flat
    And see the pizza's the same as the bear.

    (Sorry, it's been a long couple of days. Also, I live in a house.)

    Sat today. NAH (needed a hand).

    Nengei:

    No need for apologies, I understand what living in a house means. Hope you got the NAH
