The Zen of Booze
    #1702861 - 07/10/03 03:55 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

the following is an excerpt from my travel journal during my trip to japan, note: I was very very drunk when I wrote this:

----So anyways, Im in Shuzenji now, Wieeeerd DejaVu. By the way, drunk. HAHA! sorrow is better than regret, but since when is SORROW a desirable state of existance? I have just created a new philosophy! It's called "Zen and the art of getting pissed drunk". Many people have probably constructed something similar....Zen Buddhism concerns itself with focusing on the momonent (moment ha!). So, when one combines Zen and drinking, one discovers an exciting challenging philosophy. GET DRUNK + ZEN = FUN! why? because Zen is the antithesis to intoxication. (ie: its like walking on a tightrope) Getting drunk makes Zen Buddhism FUN! drinking is no longer a self-destructive past-time, it is now an expression of self-control and refinement. I know understand "drunken boxing". The moment, how interesting. One can focus on the moment, like focusing on a painting's design: What "makes" it beautiful? or you can get lost in the painting. This analogy is a perfect example of how it is an expression of life/god/reality. Very basic stuff. Alcohol can be an escape or it can be a tightrope (the mantra of a fool). Life is so beautiful it makes me nauseous. Getting drunk is an easy way to excercise mind over matter (excuse). 

:wtf:

hey, it still makes perfect sense to me, being drunk is a great method for zen meditation.

example:

normally, walking down a flight of stairs is a very easy task, because your mind has become conditioned through extensive repetition.
-try getting VERY drunk and walking down a flight of stairs
----you are now forced to focus and control your thoughts...with every step you take.

the drunk who is able to conceal his intoxication is a Zen Master.

Call me a Zen master, then. A couple weeks back, I was so very drunk, I was close to the blacking out thang. Me and a friend walked out of the apartment building he lives in, and there were the cops. I was plowed, and they smelled alcohol on my friend. They asked me if I was drinking, I said no. They never pushed it farther. Granted, I wasn't drinkning beer like he was, so It wouldn't be as easy to smell, but they should have been able to tell I was drunk, they were cops. I mean, they found my pipe (illegally searched! well, they said they saw the outline of it, but that may or may not give them probable cause). So, consier me MaZter Zen, then.
Peace.

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you
