sounds right to me. the line between inside us and outside us is artficial so if she did see god in other people then she must have seen god in herslf too, i think. maybe shw was too active to sit still and get that. I saw the movie on tv a long time ago and her shedule seemed very busy.

Art said I choose to believe that God, being Father/ Mother, may "carry" us for a distance, but at some point sets us down and says "I think you are ready now to walk without having to have me manifesting a tangible personal presence 24/7. Let's see how you do just following the instructions I have ...

most of zen for me has been silence. sometimes it is easy to undrstand, sometimes it is hard to understand. So i don't think it is the langauge. Ithink it is mostly about me at the time.

Ramakrishna, I love him. Your good stotry about him reminds me of the story on the zoo fence about ramana. Or consider this story concerning Sri Ramana Maharshi. Climbing a hill one morning, he was met by a seeker who prostrated himself before the Teacher, then stood up, and said, "All right, I have...

I don't think remember on the zoo fence is about things like rembering to take out the garbage or to walk the dog. I think it is useed here as a seekers mantra, to remember the Trtuth about ourselves always. And knowing I have taken oiut the garbage is a different knowing than knowing who I am. The ...

hi Deb. Reading my fathers papers after he died, I realized he was gay and lived in the closet all his life. My father was a good, decent , kind and genrous man. I became angry at the culture which madehim live in fear of what might happen if his family and employer found out about his homosexuality...

Yuor image is absolutly correct. Thats just what Zen does with guidnce from a master. Suddenly, the music stops, and ********

Then it starts again, but not as convinceingly. Once it has happenned once, it is never again the same.

Thank you for that Romeo Juliet idea.

I think that when we start out being a seeker we feel different from other people. In my case it conitinued like that for a long time. But then it happened that I feel less different from otehrs, although i thinkthat to otehrs I seem more different. It;s a paradox. Here is the way that Nietsche said...
