Zen emptiness and the eternal self

 

Zen has nothing to do with zen.

Taoism is not Tao.

Christ was not a Christian.

Buddha would have avoided Buddhism.

  

Absolute Zen is absolute objectivity.

It is what it is.

This is what this is.

 

There is no victory in emptiness, there is only emptiness.

 

To be full of emptiness, is to be the identitiless, eternal, infinite mercurial Self.

 

The eternal self is like a rhizome, which lives forever in the invisible realm, and ever brings forth that which comes and goes.

 

We get caught up in each other, and forget our infinite being.

 

I do not have to go anywhere, for I am everywhere.

 

The emptiness is neutral, beyond right and wrong, beyond reaction and attachment. And yet it requires the forum of the flesh to be what it is. Yin and yang. One.

 

This is the great liberation from all duality and bondage, when being is neutral.

 

The zen nothingness of self, permeating all existence, is the self which has evaporated and yet remains.

 

It is only when you lose all definition of yourself that you are truly free.

 

I finally realized what had happened- I had become immortal.

I become conscious of the unmoving Atman I am.

 

To become the stillness is to go beyond all that changes. This is eternity.
