In zen, the absolute is not "Just This." To encounter the Absolute
is not yet enlightenment. "Just this" is not some magic words
meaning something other than what is right in front of us. It is ..
just ... this.

The absolute meets the relative like a box and lid - fitting together
to make a seamless reality, which is just this reality right here.


I really could relate to your post,  Chris.  Ha, ha, I almost typed in Christ!  
Yes, JUST THIS. Or sometimes I will  do a meditation where I just keep saying: 
NOW, NOW, NOW what am I experiencing NOW.  

That's probably a more primitive version of what you are saying, or maybe I've 
got it wrong.
