Zen
    #4674630 - 09/18/05 01:26 AM (17 years, 4 months ago)

For I chase the setting sun. Down to the ocean. Where the waves crash. I bask in sarrow as the sun sets. When will this water take me away? I only want the great Way in my heart. I have been jaded. I find myself for a new day. The new fast mind comes reborn. For I am nothing but a white feather blowing in the wind. I watch my tear droplet, I think is this Zen? As if I never knew Zen at all. For nonsense is truth.

And what exactly is a "zen" "master"?

You get an "A" for enthusiasm, but an "F" for application.

Well the philosophy of things being guests of a host.

So in some form a Zen master is a guest.

If you run around calling yourself a "master" you are just massaging your own ego. So you are a Taoist master AND a Zen master?

Well when I was calling myself a Taoist master I was quite dilluted and had no proper intention or discipline.
Virtually there is no difference between the two. As they both represent the 'Way'.

But since I have much more discipline I shall only retain the title of Zen master. My Zen master is drugs.

Forgive my dilluted judgement and poor discipline of the past.

And what makes you so sure, you're on the supposed correct path towards the supposed correct way? How can you be so sure?

flavor of the week? :rolleyes:

try not to put labels on things, it only puts them farther from what they actually are.

I've learned that drugs are only a crutch, even when you use them for spiritual purposes. You're body makes it's own DMT. True discipline is being able to tap into that source...

You seem rather conflicted and at disease for a zen master. (no disrespect meant).

This is very true. I am a lament compared with other Zen master. A douchebaggery at most. Truly horrible.
