The sound of the stream takes away both host and guest...

Lead me from dreaming to waking. Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace - The Upanishads
*note* Zen Master Man Gong (1872 - 1946)I love this guy...

quote"Zen Master Man Gong (1872 - 1946) was the leading dharma heir of Zen Master Kyong Ho. His first awakening came while practicing with the kong-an: "The ten thousand dharmas return to the one: Where does the one return to?"

He shared Kyong Ho's focus on bringing Zen to lay men and women, as well as monks and nuns. During the Japanese occupation of Korea (1905 - 1945), Korean monks and nuns were forced to renounce their celibacy and marry in the manner of Japanese Buddhism. However, Man Gong refused to obey the Japanese order and was able to sustain traditional Korean Zen throughout the occupation. Following the end of World War II, he wrote the famous calligraphy, "The Whole World Is A Single Flower."

Man Gong was noted for his ability to cut through students' attachments to name and form, as shown in this dialogue:

A monk once asked Man Gong, "Where is the Buddha's teaching?"

Man Gong replied, "Right in front of you."

The monk then said, "You say, 'Right in front of you,' but I don't see it."

"You make I," answered Man Gong, "so you don't see it."

The monk asked him, "Do you see it, Master?"

Man Gong responded, "If you make I, it's difficult to see it. But if you make you, it's even more difficult to see it."

Whenever we separate the world (into you and I, right and wrong, etc.), we trade the truth of life for a story about experience. Man Gong continually cut away the storytelling, to reveal things as they are. He once wrote the following poem about this:

Holding a bamboo stick, never stop.
Already arrive in front of Bo Duk Cave.
Who is host, who is the guest? They cannot see each other.
Only very close by, the gurgle of the stream.

Man Gong added this commentary to the poem: "The sound of the stream takes away both host and guest." That's Man Gong's teaching."

And lovely final dharma talk before he died..from http://www.kwanumzen.com/primarypoint/v17n3-1999-fall-mangongsunim-finaldharmaspeech.html

Among all creatures, human beings are the most valuable because they are able to attain their true selves!


The way of the Buddha cannot be attained through thinking or theories.


Nothingness is the most frightening thing to human beings.


Most people think about the universe in only materialistic terms, but the true substance of the universe cannot be found that way.


My true Dharma speech cannot be heard -- that is my final Dharma speech...

ps..I'll try to explain what he meant...
...........
Among all creatures, human beings are the most valuable because they are able to attain their true selves!

He means here that the knowing aspect is only possible on the human form..he means that if you are an ant,you just follow the pattern..that's why he says..Among all creatures, human beings are the most valuable because they are able to attain their true selves!

The way of the Buddha cannot be attained through thinking or theories...

What he means by that?..he means the very mind you're using is just a product of the kripto awareness inside you..no thinking and no teachings can NOT help you,unless you access the root cause of the thinking itself!
POnder...
Since the universe is DUAL...born of tension between yang and yin...always act knowing the good side is there..if you look for it,and know how the universe works..
The witness is not part of creation ..yet..is the source.Why?..to know itself..I see you..


But do you see me,my friend?


Nothingness is the most frightening thing to human beings...this is the part I like the most.
People believe they loose themselves when meditating...why?...remember the duality of the universe,and the one whom is not dual?
But I tell you..unless you loose yourself,you won't discover yourself.
And the powers inside you will either force you by pain..or by Clint Eastwood..trust me.

Most people think about the universe in only materialistic terms, but the true substance of the universe cannot be found that way....
He means that manifestation cannot be taken as real..since is bound on time..space...and a nice coffin waiting for your ass soon...don't be stupid!

My true Dharma speech cannot be heard -- that is my final Dharma speech....he means that the one expresses,but you can't touch it..it is the source,but above..is you inside,but knowing itself by manifesting as you..but above all..can't touch it.
Why is that?..because he touches itself experiencing himself in your form..isn't that amazing?..kisses..

To nourish the vital energy, keep watch in silence;
In order to subdue the mind, act with non-action.
Of movement and stillness, be aware of their origin;
There is no work to do, much less someone to seek.
The true and constant must respond to phenomena;
Responding to phenomena, you must be unconfused.
When unconfused, the nature will stabilize by itself;
When the nature stabilizes, energy returns by itself.
When energy returns, the elixir crystallizes by itself;
Within the pot, the trigrams of heaven and earth are joined.
Yīn and yáng arise, alternating over and over again;
Every transformation comes like a clap of thunder.
White clouds form and come to assemble at the peak;
The sweet nectar sprinkles down Mount Sumeru.
Swallow for yourself this wine of immortality;
You wander so freely—who is able to know you?
Sit and listen to the tune played without strings;
Clearly understand the mechanism of creation.
It comes entirely from these twenty lines;
A true ladder going straight to Heaven.-Daoist text -

*note* This must be the laziest monkey in the world..I love her!!...that's my kind of monkey!!!


quote "A lazy monkey hitches a ride to the top of a tree - sitting on the back of a parrot...This squirrel monkey is enjoying the benefits of befriending the blue and gold macaw by hopping on its back for rides.

The bone idle animal lives with a male and female parrot at a countryside hotel, and the trio have become inseparable.

‘Its favorite activity is to climb on the back of the parrot and ride it around,’ said photographer Alejandro Jaramillo, 23, who spotted the unlikely pals in San Agustin, Colombia.

Amazingly, the monkey never fell off. It holds on by putting its arms around the parrot’s neck.

‘Every once in a while the owners of the hotel have to throw water on the monkey to separate it from the parrots – it just loves to be with them.

The bliss of true self..when will they ever learn?

Lead me from dreaming to waking. Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace - The Upanishads
*note* first of all..I ask you all were all the flowers gone.. or the beloved immortal ones ..men and women whom want to know the truth about life,about the reason of it,etc..where are they gone?..in the shopping mall of life?..
 Where are the giants of spirituality..those with proven achievements ...where are them?..why everybody suffers in silence..and they refuse to know their source,or their true nature?..where all the flowers are gone?
Why we kill each others as nations,gurus,and identities?..is the truth not one?..where all the butterflies are gone?.. WHERE and WHY we are here,on the earth...then they bury us?..there is a reason for life itself?
There is..but you must become the reason..kisses:)
THE MASTERY OF YOUR ATTENTION WILL COME WHEN YOU WILL START SEEING THAT IT IS ALL A MYTH THAT UPSETS YOU.JUST THROW IT AWAY..AND UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE THE ETERNAL LIFE.ONLY THEN YOU WILL FULLY ENJOY YOURSELF BECAUSE YOUR ATTENTION WOULD BE COMPLETELY DRENCHED IN THE BLISS OF YOUR TRUE SELF.-SHRI MATAJI NIRMALA DEVI-

  gotta love this Bankei master...quote"The Real Miracle
 
 
When Bankei was preaching at Ryumon temple, a Shinshu priest, who believed in salvation through the repetition of the name of the Buddha of Love, was jealous of his large audience and wanted to debate with him.


Bankei was in the midst of a talk when the priest appeared, but the fellow made such a disturbance that Bankei stopped his discourse and asked about the noise.


"The founder of our sect," boasted the priest, "had such miraculous powers that he held a brush in his hand on one bank of the river, his attendant held up a paper on the other bank, and the teacher wrote the holy name of Amida through the air. Can you do such a wonderful thing?"


Bankei replied lightly: "Perhaps your fox can perform that trick, but that is not the manner of Zen. My miracle is that when I feel hungry I eat, and when I feel thirsty I drink."

Confusing the source with it's manifestations ..the priest was deluded,you see?..
About me...I can show powers because I know how they work in the dream world .. Remember I even reduplicated my body to appear to people when I wanted..you are selling carrots to a mahayogi?...all of the miraculous powers are on the mind realm...READ MY LIPS!!

The whole universe is a bubble of the supreme mind realm..are you kidding me?..  ..you are NOT that!..that is manifestation only!..even the supreme mind realm is a manifestation...my deluded grasshoppers..kisses to you:)

Now ponder..grasshoppers..what Bankei meant by saying ,, my miracle is when I am hungry I eat?? ..then he said...Perhaps your fox can perform that trick, but that is not the manner of Zen. My miracle is that when I feel hungry I eat , and when I feel thirsty I drink...he meant that from the radiant awareness manifesting as eating..he was not confused..this is paramount for the grasshoppers to figure out.

Please meditate harder...then you'll know the truth,and bliss inside yourself..really... 


Imagine the source consciousness as the lake,the intention as the pebble you throw into the lake,and the awareness as the source of both you,the lake,and the pebble?..if you can imagine?
The radiant aspect of awareness just ,,sees,, the eating,,..while in the same time ,,enjoys it,,..thru you,the one with attention on eating.


Is like a bubble formed between the soul and the spirit within energizing the process..see?..the spirit is the witness,while your soul is experiencing. The power is of the  spirit...the absolute, not differentiated bliss is also on the spirit level...the seeing itself thru manifestation in consciousness is on soul level..THAT one experiences..you,in flesh and bones..man and woman.. ...because the spirit is the watcher,see?..grasshoppers?
Kiss me when you grow the wisdom muscles...I am waiting..
Where have all the flowers gone,Long time passing,Where have all the flowers gone,Long time ago Where have all the flowers gone,Young girls picked them every oneWhen will they ever learn When will they ever learn Where have all the young girls gone,Long time passing,Where have all the young girls gone,Long time ago,Where have all the young girls gone,gone to young men every oneWhen will they ever learn When will they ever learn Where have all the young men gone,Long time passing,Where have all the young men gone,Long time ago,Where have all the young men gone,gone to soldiers every one,When will they ever learn When will they ever learn Where have all the soldiers gone,Long time passing,Where have all the soldiers gone,Long time ago,Where have all the soldiers gone,Gone to graveyards every oneWhen will they ever learn When will they ever learn Where have all the graveyards gone,Long time passing,Where have all the graveyards gone,Long time ago,Where have all the graveyards gone,Gone to flowers every one When will they ever learn When will they ever learn..asks the mahayogi..??? by pain and suffering or by bliss?..up to them,I say..grasshoppers..up to you.

Please be aware that he called the priest a ,,fox,,..what a fox means?..a fox is the most intelligent among species of dogs(aka.. meditators...that's all..and remember ,,no fox could be trained ..they have a mind of their own...that's why Bankei called the priest a ,,fox,,..fixed in his ideas of self-understanding. ..that's all.
I love this Bankei master,indeed..kisses to all:)
Thus spokenth the mahayogi..

Blue moon, you saw me standin' alone
Without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own
Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for
You heard me sayin' a prayer for
Someone I really could care for


And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will hold
I heard somebody whisper "please adore me"
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold


Blue moon, now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own


And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper "please adore me"
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold


Blue moon, now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own


Blue moon, now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

The Last Poem of Hoshin http://deoxy.org/koan/10


The Zen Master Hoshin lived in China many years. Then he returned to the northeastern part of Japan, where he taught his disciples. When he was getting very old, he told them a story he had heard in China. This is the story:


One year on the twenty-fifth of December, Tokufu, who was very old, said to his disciples: "I am not going to be alive next year so you fellows should treat me well this year."


The pupils thought he was joking, but since he was a great-hearted teacher each of them in turn treated him to a feast on succeeding days of the departing year.


On the eve of the new year, Tokufu concluded: "You have been good to me. I shall leave tomorrow afternoon when the snow has stopped."


The disciples laughed, thinking he was aging and talking nonsense since the night was clear and without snow. But at midnight snow began to fall, and the next day they did not find their teacher about. They went to the meditation hall. There he had passed on.


Hoshin, who related this story, told his disciples: "It is not necessary for a Zen master to predict his passing, but if he really wishes to do so, he can."


"Can you?" someone asked.


"Yes," answered Hoshin. "I will show you what I can do seven days from now."


None of the disciples believed him, and most of them had even forgotten the conversation when Hoshin called them together.


"Seven days ago," he remarked, "I said I was going to leave you. It is customary to write a farewell poem, but I am neither a poet or a calligrapher. Let one of you inscribe my last words."


His followers thought he was joking, but one of them started to write.


"Are you ready?" Hoshin asked.


"Yes sir," replied the writer.


Then Hoshin dictated:


I came from brilliancy


And return to  brilliancy


What is this?


This line was one line short of the customary four, so the disciple said: "Master, we are one line short."


Hoshin, with the roar of a conquering lion, shouted "Kaa!" and he just died...because he was very disappointed that even watching his death... his disciples could not grasp the mystery of his kripto words...for those whom have ears to listen..let them listen.


To nourish the vital energy, keep watch in silence;
In order to subdue the mind, act with non-action.
Of movement and stillness, be aware of their origin;
There is no work to do, much less someone to seek.
The true and constant must respond to phenomena;
Responding to phenomena, you must be unconfused.
When unconfused, the nature will stabilize by itself;
When the nature stabilizes, energy returns by itself.
When energy returns, the elixir crystallizes by itself;
Within the pot, the trigrams of kǎn and lí are joined.
Yīn and yáng arise, alternating over and over again;
Every transformation comes like a clap of thunder.
White clouds form and come to assemble at the peak;
The sweet nectar sprinkles down Mount Sumeru.
Swallow for yourself this wine of immortality;
You wander so freely—who is able to know you?
Sit and listen to the tune played without strings;
Clearly understand the mechanism of creation.
It comes entirely from these twenty lines;
A true ladder going straight to Heaven.-Daoist text -

Karlfried Graf Dürckheim...the marvelous German saint:)

Lead me from dreaming to waking. Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace - The Upanishads
*note*...this is about the marvelous Karl Friedrich Alfred Heinrich Ferdinand Maria Graf Eckbrecht von Dürckheim-Montmartin one of a kind...I quote from wikipedia..

quote"Karl Friedrich Alfred Heinrich Ferdinand Maria Graf Eckbrecht von Dürckheim-Montmartin (October 24, 1896 – December 28, 1988) was a German diplomat, psychotherapist and Zen-Master.Life and work

Dürckheim was born in Munich. He was a descendant of old Bavarian nobility whose parents still had a fortune, eventually lost during bad economic times.

In his early twenties, he was reading in the Tao Te Ching of Lao-Tzu.

"Suddenly it happened! I was listening and lightning went through me. The veil was torn asunder, I was awake! I had just experienced 'It'. Everything existed and nothing existed. Another Reality had broken through this world. I myself existed and did not exist..."

"I had experienced that which is spoken of in all centuries: individuals, in whatever stage of their lives, have had an experience which struck them with the force of lightning and linked them once and for all to the circuits of True Life."

Meister Eckhart became very important for him. "I recognize in Eckhart my master, the master. But we can only approach him if we eliminate the conceptual consciousness."

Dürckheim was a professor at Kiel for a few years. Then it was discovered that he had a Jewish grandmother. Eventually he became an envoy for Nazi Germany's foreign ministry under Joachim von Ribbentrop. Before World War II, in 1938, he was sent to Japan, residing there for eight years.

After the war, Tokyo was occupied by Americans. Dürckheim went into hiding in Karuizawa and was arrested on October 30, 1945 by agents of the US Counter-Intelligence Corps[1]. He was imprisoned for a year and a half in Sugamo Prison. "That time of captivity was precious to me because I could exercise zazen meditation and remain in immobility for hours." Graf "Duerckheim" is identified by Albert Stunkard in Zen Teaching, Zen Practice, (Weatherhill 2000) edited by Kenneth Kraft, as the person who suggested to Stunkard that he should visit D.T. Suzuki in Kita Kamakura, not far from the Sugamo prison. That visit started a chain reaction of visitors to the Suzuki residence, one of whom was Philip Kapleau, author of The Three Pillars of Zen and founder of the Rochester Zen Center. Dürckheim thus was directly responsible for launching Zen into the American mainstream.

Along with psychologist Maria Hippius, Dürckheim founded the "Center of existential and psychological formation and encounter" in the early 1950s. It was located in the Black Forest village of Todtmoos-Rutte. His books were based on his conferences, and were influential in Europe.

"What I am doing is not the transmission of Zen Buddhism; on the contrary, that which I seek after is something universally human which comes from our origins and happens to be more emphasized in eastern practices than in the western."

Dürckheim's "Initiation Therapy" dealt with the encounter between the profane, mundane, "little" self — the ego — and the true Self. "The therapist is not the one who heals, that is, who intervenes with his own skills; he is a therapist in the original meaning of the word: a companion on the way.Quotations

"The man, who, being really on the Way, falls upon hard times in the world will not, as a consequence, turn to that friend who offers him refuge and comfort and encourages his old self to survive. Rather, he will seek out someone who will faithfully and inexorably help him to risk himself, so that he may endure the suffering and pass courageously through it. Only to the extent that man exposes himself over and over again to annihilation, can that which is indestructible arise within him. In this lies the dignity of daring."
– from "The Way of Transformation"
"What I am doing is not the transmission of Zen Buddhism; on the contrary, that which I seek after is something universally human which comes from our origins and happens to be more emphasized in eastern practices than in the western."


So I changed a little bit the lyrics..it goes like this..

If you knew me Peggy Sue(Friedrich Alfred ) - then you’d know why I feel blue
without Peggy - my Peggy Sue..my beautiful Alfred
oh well, I love you man - yes, I love you Peggy Sue

Why I say that?..first of all,he was realized,and he knew the truth.
Second..he was looking from the bubble of existence from the soul point of view..
That was very unfortunate,because this method would never work,unless there are some old souls,ready.
The true method is from grace,from within out,not from outside in..But I still love you,Peggy Sue,my beautiful Alfred from Germany!

Kisses for him..

quotes from his works...
BECOMING REAL:
ESSAYS ON THE TEACHINGS OF A MASTER http://www.stillnessspeaks.com/assets/books/1/Karlfried%20Graf%20Durkheim%20Becoming%20Real.pdf

THE TRINITY OF BEING
The fall of humanity brought on the unfortunate distresses around which gravitate all of Durckheim's work. They are three in number and are the common denominator of all other suffering:

* the fear of death: a stream cut off from its source ceases to exist, that is a law of nature.
A man cut off from his divine core, from which he receives himself constantly, will
inevitably head toward suffering and death, and his existence is marked by this profound anguish, for everything is hostile and threatning to him;

* the meaninglessness of life: man is created to nourish himself of God and to unite himself to Him. If he does not respond to this fundamental aspiration of his whole being, his life has no more meaning, everything is absurd, and he is never satisfied;

* solitude: man living without God finds himself alone. He identifies himself with his little self and enters into a world of division: life becomes "me against the world." The hypertrophy of the mundane self makes true encounter difficult and solitude inevitable.

Yet this triple distress represents for Durckheim a reality which expresses the whole Bible. Man "in the image of God" is promised from the beginning a triple blessing: delighting in the life of God, possessing the Kingdom of heaven and powers through the gifts of the Spirit. Is it then surprising that Satan tempts Adam and Eve in their very happiness?

Indeed, there are three temptations and they contain all the others (see Genesis 3):
* Adam eats of t he tree of knowledge prohibited by God: he falls therefore into the world of enjoyment without God. But this enjoyment leads straight to death! Freud and his descendants have shown that "man dug his ditch with his teeth" and that the bed of Eros was in reality a tomb. Adam is then chased out of paradise, that is, he loses his interiority since he seeks his pleasure elsewhere, on the outside;

* "The tree was desirable" continues the text of Genesis, and this is the world of
possession without God. We place our desire for infinity into the finite, in that which is mined by erosion and ruin. The richest man in the world is also the saddest man in the world. His golden palace is a prison whose windows open onto the absurdity of life..

and from  DIALOGUE ON THE PATH OF
INITIATION
The Life and Thought of Karlfried Graf Durckheim
by Alphonse Goettmann http://authorsden.com/SampleWorksPDF/4581.pdf
It awakens in the disciple a force which annihilates all arrogance and also gives him the courage to look death in the face, the death of all that is not Life, Truth, and Light within. This radiance is not sentimental, but cutting, harsh, and yet full of warmth; the Master can be harsh in order to fill the other with beatitude and freedom. The example of the Master is never offered for imitation. His figure is original, unique, and inimitable like the very Life which he
incorporates. That is what distinguishes him from other false masters.

Through what he says,
his attitude and his way of being, he seeks only one thing: to provoke the disciple to his own reality, to reveal his originality, the inner Master and Being which comes through him. He is not in any way the "good example" or the model, nor someone who knows more, but simply being himself, he witnesses to the transparence of the Transcendent.
Finally, shock is often one of the greatest means which the Master utilizes......

"The man, who, being really on the Way, falls upon hard times in the world will not, as a consequence, turn to that friend who offers him refuge and comfort and encourages his old self to survive. Rather, he will seek out someone who will faithfully and inexorably help him to risk himself, so that he may endure the suffering and pass courageously through it. Only to the extent that man exposes himself over and over again to annihilation, can that which is indestructible arise within him. In this lies the dignity of daring."

You're not aware what you miss:)

Lead me from dreaming to waking. Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace - The Upanishads


-Beyond Beliefs-
Sahaja yoga is just bliss
The inner joy,the one you miss
Sahaja yoga is above
The petty struggles..it's just love
It doesn't make you drink more beer
Your mind becomes so crispy clear
It is above the confrontation
It is about emancipation
It is your spirit shining though
Your heart,your eyes..your fingers too
It is with self a love affair
You breathe the joy ,not only air
You are a rainbow butterfly
You raise your wings..and go high..high..
You are alone and yet collective
Whatever you do..you're protected
You are reminded who you are
The God Almighty's sparkling star
My dear friend,the life is short
Don't let your soul become too old
Just feel the sunshine..it's not cold!!
Beyond beliefs..open your eyes
To inner kingdom's paradise!!!.(-added by danny-)

*note* I wrote a poem for all the swamis in the world..
.............
-The mind-forms-
Well the Swami he runs a mind-form
He runs it in his illusion realms

He makes a few of his people happy, oh
He don't care about the rest at all
But maybe kripto pressure can make the Swami see
How everybody could live as one
When he enjoys and just has fun
Swami's projections..when they're done
His kripto shines again like sun
He is inside,and yet apart
His wisdom muscle's getting smart
One thing,yet many is the point
The universe's amazing bliss
You're not aware what you miss
When this and that..and all are joined
So.. Swami!!. listen without clothes
To kripto's most amazing words
As long you keep the mind-forms fire
You'll never know what might transpire
Inside of you there is a kripto
It is all love ,and sweet demise
Let's die..my Swami..and shall rise
In kripto's beauty paradise!!!
Never believe this is the end..
And happy birthday,my good friend!
Do not confuse manifestation
With the true one..that's illusion
Do not confuse my true desire
Not separated..but a fusion
My wisdom muscle in on fire
Can't you find your true desire?
For the mind-forms are just cluster..
So I wish..live long and prosper!!

He don't care about the rest at all
But maybe kripto pressure can make the Swami see
How everybody could live as one
When he enjoys and just has fun
Swami's projections..when they're done
His kripto shines again like sun
He is inside,and yet apart
His wisdom muscle's getting smart
One thing,yet many is the point
The universe's amazing bliss
You're not aware what you miss
When this and that..and all are joined
So.. Swami!!. listen without clothes
To kripto's most amazing words
As long you keep the mind-forms fire
You'll never know what might transpire
Inside of you there is a kripto
It is all love ,and sweet demise
Let's die..my Swami..and shall rise
In kripto's beauty paradise!!!
Never believe this is the end..
And happy birthday,my good friend!
Do not confuse manifestation
With the true one..that's illusion
Do not confuse my true desire
Not separated..but a fusion
My wisdom muscle in on fire
Can't you find your true desire?
For the mind-forms are just cluster..
So I wish..live long and prosper!!

To nourish the vital energy, keep watch in silence;
In order to subdue the mind, act with non-action.
Of movement and stillness, be aware of their origin;
There is no work to do, much less someone to seek.
The true and constant must respond to phenomena;
Responding to phenomena, you must be unconfused.
When unconfused, the nature will stabilize by itself;
When the nature stabilizes, energy returns by itself.
When energy returns, the elixir crystallizes by itself;
Within the pot, the trigrams of kǎn and lí are joined.
Yīn and yáng arise, alternating over and over again;
Every transformation comes like a clap of thunder.
White clouds form and come to assemble at the peak;
The sweet nectar sprinkles down Mount Sumeru.
Swallow for yourself this wine of immortality;
You wander so freely—who is able to know you?
Sit and listen to the tune played without strings;
Clearly understand the mechanism of creation.
It comes entirely from these twenty lines;
A true ladder going straight to Heaven.-Daoist text -

To us all towns are one, all men our kin. Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill. Man's pains and pains' relief are from within. Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !." - Tamil Poem-

The Universe is worked and guided from within outwards

Lead me from dreaming to waking. Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace - The Upanishads
*note*Tung-shan pointed to this supreme Enlightenment in a verse:
The man of wood sings,
The stone maiden rises and dances;
This cannot be done by passion or learning,
It cannot be done by discursive reasoning.
So I wrote this poem for the grasshoppers:)
The man of wood sings about the sunshine and water
The stone maiden rises and dances in unison 
For billions years she was stuck...
Now she can dance with the woodman
This can not be done using manifestation as object
Nore by arguing in some internet forums
Only by knowing your true self
Which happens to smile
When you blame him,the kripto inside you
For your pains
But you are him
And everything you hate outside
You hate inside(but you don't know it)
As above,so below
For the true self is ONE as in the others
Kissing you on the forehead
Then spanking your ass for fun
One kiss ,and one spanking is his method
Of knowing the creation..for his only love is himself
The beloveds and the beloved and the love and loved become one
As a resonating,bubbling factor
Marvelous  factor of,,You are here to experience your own nature,,
As I was told
When I was the forest,the light,and the world was inside me
Not outside..
For my joy..the kripto mahayogi ..
Thus..the wood maiden raises 
And the stone man kisses her..yin and yang
One beauty..one love
One mystery unfolding
The birds are singing ..halleluyah!
Why aren't you ready,grasshoppers?..says the Mahayogi?
Kiss:) 
I love you all..
When you are ready for my wisdom muscles...
Call me..for my phone always rings
And I just look around,and wonder what's the matter
With the phone...because the world is ok...and so are you,if you know your true nature.
Kiss:)
large archive of various texts,mostly from Theosophy..that's why they say THEOSOPHY Library(quote"Theosophy is a doctrine of religious philosophy and mysticism. Theosophy holds that all religions are attempts by the "Spiritual Hierarchy" to help humanity in evolving to greater perfection, and that each religion therefore has a portion of the truth. The founding members, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831–1891), Henry Steel Olcott (1832–1907), and William Quan Judge (1851–1896), established the Theosophical Society in New York City in 1875."
MEMORIAL LIBRARY .. is a library of texts..that's all...worthy of reading,if you have time.I don't have much love for any Theosophist,really..I don't consider any one of them realized..however,I do consider some of what they speak of as true,since this is an interdependent universe...this means you are a resonant matrix of the whole...nothing is apart of you,see?..grasshoppers?
THE UNIVERSE redefines itself in a self-conscious mood continuously ...end of seeking?..TALK TO GOD ABOUT THAT,and ASK HIM why he created this pattern...and IF YOU TELL me you know it all ,or YOU are god...and at the ,,end of seeking,,..I say take an aspirin ...the whole purpose is to NOT know..otherwise,there'd be no advances in consciousness,no knowing,no mystery and no universe itself..really..no individuality ,no galaxies,no flowers and no butterflies..and no kriptos like me,indeed...and let those whom have ears hear my wisdom..and let those whom think they KNOW God do whatever they want...the cemeteries are full of men and women like them...because you are god,but you don't know it,or refuse to accept it...even though everything is GOD,yet you refuse to accept that you could be god also...it's too much pain to accept that all those pains you've suffered came from yourself,isn't it?..better to blame others...(including gods..none are spared of blaming,humans or gods..insanity indeed)
Much love to the grasshoppers;)

Theosophy describes the Universe as a plenum and teaches that the hierarchies of beings are processioning therein, and through involution and evolution, are advancing from stage to stage. Says The Secret Doctrine (i 274–275):

The Universe is worked and guided from within outwards. As above so it is below, as in heaven so on earth; and man – the microcosm and miniature copy of the macrocosm – is the living witness to this Universal Law and to the mode of its action. We see that every external motion, act, gesture, whether voluntary or mechanical, organic or mental, is produced and preceded by internal feeling or emotion, will or volition, and thought or mind. As no outward motion or change, when normal, in man’s external body can take place unless provoked by an inward impulse, given through one of the three functions named, so with the external or manifested Universe. The whole Kosmos is guided, controlled, and animated by almost endless series of Hierarchies of sentient Beings, each having a mission to perform, and who – whether we give to them one name or another, and call them Dhyan Chohans or Angels – are "messengers" in the sense only that they are the agents of Karmic and Cosmic Laws. They vary infinitely in their respective degrees of consciousness and intelligence; and to call them all pure Spirits without any of the earthly alloy "which time is wont to prey upon" is only to indulge in poetical fancy. For each of these Beings either was, or pre­pares to become, a man, if not in the present, then in a past or a coming cycle (Manvantara). They are perfected, when not incipient, men.


The human kingdom is but one hierarchy. Humanity on earth is surrounded by minerals, vegetables and animals, and like man himself, these have their respective invisible counterparts; but these form only one part of the vast invisible. There are other constituents. Nature is septenary:


"the spiritual or divine; the psychic or semi-divine the intellectual; the passional; the instinctual, or cognitional; the semi-corporeal and the purely material and physical natures." Just as our own mind is nearer to our own body than is the body of another, so also some of these invisible intelligences are nearer neighbours than our friends living in our street. We have cosmic neighbours, and we owe to these proper recognition and duties, just as we have and should assume civic and national responsibility.
 ps..I am was actually trying to post about Tung-Shan ( http://theosophytrust.org/tlodocs/articlesTeacher.php?d=Tung-shan.htm&p=134
quote"Liang-chieh of Tung-shan (807–869), often referred to simply as Tung-Shan or Dongshan Liangjie (Ch. 洞山良价), was a Ch'an (Zen) master of 9th century China. Along with his pupil Ts'ao-shan Pen-chi, he is best known for founding the Ts'ao-tung, or later Sōtō, school of Ch'an. However, his contributions also include extensive expansion and analysis of Buddhist doctrine, such as the poetic Verses of the Five Ranks, as well as stimulation of Buddhist popularity during an era of vulnerability for the religion
The Five Ranks, by Chinese Soto (Caodong) master Tung-shan, are fundamental to Sōtō and Rinzai Zen teaching, expressing the fundamental non-dualism of Buddhist teaching, which rejects the duality of dualism and non-dualism. The ranks are based on a translation of five stanzas from a poem attributed to Tung-shan, who may have received it from his master before him:
  1. The Apparent within the Real/The Actual within the Ideal
  2. The Real within the Apparent/The Ideal within the Actual
  3. The Coming from within the Real
  4. The Arrival at Mutual Integration
  5. Unity Attained
end quote" (added by danny)
Because of his conviction that language traps the user more often than it frees him, Tung-shan did not believe that discourses or even philosophical conversation in itself could be very helpful in efforts to draw closer to enlightenment. When the monk who had been asked about his real self raised a question on how one could see one's subjectivity without making it objective, Tung-shan answered, "To talk about it in this way is easy, but to continue our talking makes it impossible to reach the truth." As his enigmatic answers and poetic responses suggest, Tung-shan freely used the language of the Taoist philosophers, often quoting from Chuang-tzu to make a point. He never uttered a plain absurdity, however, nor was he known to have ever used the shout or the stick. He preferred to unsettle and dislodge consciousness from its inertia rather than to shock or shatter it. Because he thought of enlightenment in terms of gradual stages of dawning insight, he was more concerned with what was transmitted from mind to mind than with the totalistic process of transmission itself. If Lin-chi could be thought of as focussing on the instantaneous nature of a complete transmission, Tung-shan carefully considered its content. Like Chuang-tzu, he believed that language is the net whereby one catches the fish, but once caught, the fisherman of meditation has to haul in the catch.
    Mind, for Tung-shan, is a unity in itself and in relation to the world. Although it is frequently convenient to speak of states or levels of consciousness, mind is one, and though distinctions between internal and external can be useful, especially for nurturing a sense of moral agency, there is only Mind-Reality. Meditation aims to discover experientially the metaphysical truth that unity and multiplicity themselves are resolved in a coincidentia oppositorum, a transcendental Oneness which can be called Enlightenment or shunyata, the Void. When one thinks, "The sky is blue", one has produced neither an objective description of Nature nor a subjective impression of some psychological state. Rather, it is an instantaneous expression of Reality in the context of multiplicity. As such, "The sky is blue" is not a proposition which means something: it just is itself, not different from Reality, yet not Reality as a whole.

    Meditation is not an attempt to escape from one consciousness into another, for consciousness is one. More accurately, it is movement along a continuum from the end which exhibits a high degree of multiplicity towards the end which exhibits greater unity. Soto Zen came to prefer the analogy of the ocean: tempest-tossed on its surface, where wind and temperature produce ceaseless movement and agitation; calmer in its depths, where persistent currents steadily circulate; and still in its deepest parts, where change has no locus. Although meditation is a way the mind can be used all the time, sitting in meditation, zazen, is useful in cultivating the ability to move the focus of consciousness into the depths. When that focalization is deep enough, there is no object of focus, and mind comes to behold itself as it really is, the Unity which is Reality. In spirit, Tung-shan's teachings on meditation are closer to Patanjali's Yoga Sutras than to the melodrama of popular Zen.

    Since the Unity manifests in multiplicity, the Absolute appears in the relative, or the Real is one with the phenomenal. Tung-shan grounded his teachings on the doctrine that there are five distinguishable relations between universal and particular, which represent five progressive stages of enlightenment. As outlined by his disciple Ts'ao-shan, Tung-shan called the first state "the universal within the particular", where Unity or the Absolute is obscured by the ignorant preoccupation of human beings with appearances. Yet because the universal is within the particular, it is possible to become aware that the world of appearances has no intrinsic reality as a multiplicity, but is only as real as the senses make it. Discovering this, an individual can pass on to the second stage, called "the particular within the universal". Here the meditator comes to see that objective reality is necessarily perceived through his subjective apparatus, and that the Absolute is approached through the relative, for particulars exemplify the universal. This stage permits the realization – invariably misunderstood at the first stage – that good and evil are part of the same unity. In one sense, this can be called enlightenment.

    The third stage is reached when the individual can approach the Absolute through universality, focussing consciousness with out any props at all – neither image nor language nor specific thought. The fourth stage is achieved when one can experience total unity in the experience of particulars, so that any particular reveals the Absolute. In this stage one can meaningfully say, "After Zen, mountains are mountains and rivers are rivers." The fifth stage is the supreme discovery of shunyata, wherein no approach is possible since it is beyond speech and silence. Neither object nor concept is helpful, for the Void contains all concepts and objects whilst transcending them. This stage of "wordless insight" is the experience of consciousness abiding in its own nature as the Mind-Reality. Here, where naught else exists – much less avails – one can say that action and inaction are the same. In his typically enigmatic way, Tung-shan pointed to this supreme Enlightenment in a verse:
