JMJM; There is a way of relenting the form of the words making them come out as a manifestation of Buddha, Jesus, god, Ala, Krishna, universal energy of the heart... and that is the one of, breathing we are online!. I've been having under observation myself reactions while posting to the web. I have noticed that when posting gets massive and try to read and answer them all... I start to lost all sense of synchronisation with the universe. After the second post or the third or the fourth....the active mind replaces the universal energy for mental activity. I have also noticed that as soon as that is brought to the awareness plane, I stop all activity and take a break to breath in awareness for as long as it takes to restore back the energy of the practise. Afterewards I'm OK again. This simple way is beneficial alone the taming of the ego. Taking care of it. As a result the outcome brings benefit to everyone. It's a continuous taming of the ego. Thanks for the opportunity of sharing. Mayka --- On Sat, 30/10/10, Jue Miao Jing Ming - 覺妙精明 <chan.j...@gmail.com> wrote:

Some teachers are like a mirror, it reflects the true we, so that we get to know ourselves, to wake us up. Depending on whether we are the at the stage of seeking inwardly or outwardly, both type of teachers do have merits. It all depends on the "I' at that moment in life. This momentary condition are what we called karmic conditions.

From where I stand, it is still not a "must have", but then again, I'm open to the difference, if perhaps this is the way it is in Zen.
