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.

Indeed, ED.  The label for these conditions is "Delusion".  

As soon as we say or think or act, we have indulged ourselves into form, which 
is emptiness.  So are every word posted and discussed here, including every 
alphabet that I am typing at the moment....

Hi All,

In my limited experience, some teachers are like a tour guide, he tells us 
where to go or what to do.  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.

That's life.

On the path or off the path, with a teacher (zen, psychological or
spiritual) or without a teacher, one could be fooling oneself about
something or other, from one perspective or another. This is a universal
given in the game of life.

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