I weaved a secret but I don't think it fair... yes chasing one's heart can make the mind race for others and not lose oneself if you put in the effort
for such things.
That's the advice a bit more clearly although motorcycles clear out a lot of sh!t too if taken that way...
Here's the secret... in Zen the makyo gets so strong that birds landing on gates can sound like a cannon ball when the wings beat the battlements
closed off and yet such violence flies so freely depite the keep out sign instead of using it's knocker since the door had one it just sang a tune as
the mind rolled into the barrel.
Hello fodder hello plunger in plunging the mutter so deep trying to unclog a heart in a drain so deep.
Enough small talk... each thing outside of nature came from others... we learned it's name and we have it to appreciate it's use and then think no
more about it except in selfish need.
So when the mind is in such a silence of dissolution dwelling on no dwelling at all? Just ashes and embers... how to rebuild properly? Go back and
name them again... this is a remote this is a whatever? No. As you have seen? That doesn't work... right back into meaningless.
Here is what does... and it is something I need to start applying myself, hence why I wanted to keep it a secret like being the one counting down 3-2-
go! Well, what happened to one? Exactly... that was creation something we all can appreciate as it is arising.
So going back to appreciate what has already risen? Once the selfishness turns to silence? Well one didn't appreciate it to begin with we just learned
what it was then selfishly wanted it until it become yet another thing another burden another object to fill yet another empty life. So what was
always missing? That appreciation all it took to put it in your life... not what wanted it or brought it there or what it cost you to do it... but
what it cost others to do so, the time, the effort, the skill in it's making it... as creative artists ego will become narcissitic at times in
appreciation due to others appreciation when it was the expression of you in it not you because that you is now in the creation of it... of course
when the egoless create? It is self effacing seeing all of the you that when into it and seeing oneself as an unfinished work? It becomes a mirror
instead of a moment.
So living in others and our own moments of creation, we can pick up those empty things find a proper place for them in that moment, hold it in hand or
eye and direct the mind to all that that went into it... and then what was void? Transforms into love instead of the selfish greed that caused us to
aquire it that part of ourself that died along the way that we hated enough to kill, so much so that it killed all that was created as a labor our of
love or necessity... it is then that we can appreciate more than just nature itself and the feeling of serenity can then also occur among things as
So yes it appears I pulled the starting gun before i even knew I was running... and perhaps you did too? I'll walk back as I have yet to get into the
habit with the material that seems to not have any life in it... yet it has all the energy ever put into it and that can speak volumes even if the
mind does not. So listen to what it has to say like reading a book except the words are yours in the translation between the two.
Lol it reminds me of a meme I saw online... it said I wanted to clean my room, but instead I picked up an object and stared at it for 6 hours
recalling everything about it and then just went to sleep instead. A very real meme and an anchor to memory it's already there yes? Instead of letting
it weigh you down for eight hours I am thinking... let it lift you up by letting it be a gift others have made for you to enjoy instead of simply want
of course appreciation for the tree in it's sacrifice and environment that is now out of place or disturbed to make it is a given in such a messy
This goes to something Serdgiam said that revved my mental engine:

We may not see that Pygmy Marmoset on the branch of the third tree from the left immediately, but its there at least from the moment of seeing it, and
if we set it into motion it can have its own movements beyond our explicit thoughts and attention.
In a sense, I think it allows us to explore worlds that we are not directly involved with at the same time as fully experiencing the one we are
Here's what this fired out for me... in the whole out of place business. Marmoset wasn't there... likely have seen a marmoset before that was out of
place then looking again? Marmoset was back on a branch where it belongs in the world it needed to be... leaped right out of the mind back into the
habitat it belonged and wanted to be.
Curious maybe... as it made me think... of this Tiger I saw being kept in someone's garage as a pet, so what did I do? I created a mangrove in my mind
and then pictured the Tiger in it.
Speaking of experiements? I wonder what the course of such a thing would/could lead too... over population of Tigers? Lol who knows who knows just
don't picture the same mangrove I did and perhaps it'll be ok lol... just thinking about it I should probably mentally place another Tiger there
too... or else it may get lonely or the other inhabitants OMG! where did this foul strippy demon come from? and it smiles Cheshire at me for all the
fun food and entertainment.
