I think that you are absolutely right on target Brian, that is why I bother to read your comments. There is a lot of material on the Internet and my time is most valuable and limited.

We all need to ask the unanswerable questions and then demand answers. That is our birthright. I truly believe that if the questions are sincere the answers will come accordingly.

Brian,

Your grandmother had gorgeous eyes... and full of wisdom, no doubt!

There Is a Mountain
Donovan
The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is
First there is a mountain then there is no mountain, then there is
Caterpillar sheds his skin to find the butterfly within
First there is a mountain then there is no mountain, then there is
First there is a mountain then there is no mountain
Oh, Juanita, oh, Juanita
Oh, Juanita I call your name
Oh, the snow will be a blinding sight to see as it lies on yonder hillside
The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is
Caterpillar sheds his skin to find the butterfly within
First there is a mountain then there is no mountain, then there is

What could be more wonderful? The inside of the cup, the cut away of the window. I think the story goes that the Bodhidharma sat facing a wall for 9 years. And one of the jokes of that story is that Bodhidharma wanted an audience with the emperor, but it took 9 years to learn Chinese. There is not-meditation, and not-audience, twisting around Chan and not-Chan, like chrysanthemum dragons.

Thank what-is-beyond the heavens!
