Another Double Shot Today

Firewood becomes ash, and it does not become firewood again. Yet, do not suppose that the ash is future and the firewood past. You should understand that firewood is firewood, which fully includes past and future. Ash is ash, which fully includes future and past. Just as firewood does not become firewood again after it is ash, you do not return to birth after death.

-Dogen, "Actualizing the Fundamental Point"

Although you may understand the explanations, if you are still suffering because of problems, you clearly do not understand the true nature of your mind, your body, and your senses.

For some years now, students have not been getting to the root of the aim of Zen, instead taking the verbal teachings of Buddhas and Zen masters to be the ultimate rule. That is like ignoring a hundred thousand pure clear oceans and only focusing attention on a single bubble.

By self alone is evil done, by self alone does one suffer.
By self alone is evil left undone,
by self alone does one obtain Salvation.
Salvation and Perdition depend upon self; no man can save another.

Attentiveness is the path to true life;
Indifference is the path to death.
The attentive do not die;
The indifferent are as if they are dead already.

If you want to know the past, to know what has caused you, look at yourself in the present, for that is the past’s effect. If you want to know your future, then look at yourself in the present, for that is the cause of the future.

To probe deep into your roots:
The ignorance and confusion are you yourself.
The preconceptions which are yourself
Are envoys and agents sent by yourself.

from taopage.org

"Are there anymore masters nowadays?" I asked Master Lu during one of our afternoon conversations. "Yes", he answered laconically, and then again, serenely:

"There are three kinds of masters: involuntary masters, voluntary masters, and the master- teaching."

"Three kinds?" I said in amazement. "I thought there are masters and nothing more."

"Involuntary masters" - Master Lu resumed without paying attention to my remark - "are those from whom you learn mechanically. Their life or a moment of it is like a teaching to you, like an open book where one can read what is useful or not for oneself. Voluntary masters are those considering they have something to teach you, therefore they take over the teacher's role with its advantages and disadvantages. Some of them get money, others reputation… And then there is the master-teaching growing like a tree within each of us. All you have to do is to be silent and listen, and the teaching will be born inside you, just as a babe is born inside the woman!"

"Quite an odd classification," I remarked. "Still, which of them are the most helpful for people?"

"The involuntary masters are helpful, even if they are not aware of that. The voluntary ones are helpful and not. But the deepest and finest teaching is the one growing inside your being, like a tree: it is the fruit of your listening - while you become the fruit of its efficiency. For what is not efficient will not last…"

"By the way, Master, which category do you fall into?" I added.

"None of them. I'm an auxiliary."

Since I've been in a Slack Trance for a little while...

Selfishness corrupts, as weeds choke a field. Be free of selfishness, and honour those who are also free.
24. Desires, verse 359

Just because a person begs for their daily needs, it does not mean they are living a proper life. Look for chastity, non-attachment, and discipline in practice before you award such an accolade.

The thought just occurred to me that what the world needs is real leaders not these ivy league suits who have been bred and groomed specifically to hold power over us pesants. I thought the whole reason we dumped tea in Boston Harbor was to be rid of self perpetuating autocracies.
