ZAZEN TOMORROW (January 20, 2007)

I just wanted to make sure everyone knows there will be Zazen at the Hill Street Center in Santa Monica on Saturday January 20, 2007 at the regularly scheduled time. But I will not be there. There's a link to your right with all the detials.

Thanks again for all the messages of support.

Hey Brad,

When you feel a bit better and stuff, I sure feel awkward asking this, can you write a post on how you're dealing with this as a zen buddhist please?

I'm not trying to call you out or anything, just curious as to how your practise relates to this kind of scenario.

Again,

Sorry for what's happened, hope you're all doing ok

I hope the difficulties with your mothers cremation works out.

I really enjoyed the new article at SGs. Thanks!

I've got to stop making excuses and face my life with action.

I feel like even what I'm saying right now is an excuse so I'll shut up and sit down.

I'm interested in what Brad has to say too, but let me stick in my two cents' worth.

Back when I was in colleg, a Japanese Zen monk came and gave a talk. The one thing I remember him saying (it was a long time ago) is that some people say Zen is remaining unaffected if your house burns down and family dies. But that's wrong. In that case Zen should cry.

Dealing with a problem implies that there's some separation between you and the problem. In Zen you deal with a problem by becoming the problem.

It's interesting to look at why we're even interested in what happens when we die in the first place. I'd have to say that what I really want to know is if it will be pleasant for me or not, and if not what can I do to aviod that?

brad - "where do we go when we die" was a nice piece of writing.. and i appreciate the lame excuse you have provided me to visit you there :).

hey jinzang (or anyone really),

just out of curiosity, with your theory of dealing, how come I have never heard a buddhist comment on a broken heart? or love for that matter...
