Oh and I also dreamt last night, that the smartest geeks had come to power, and while they all looked a little odd, with their facial hair and
glasses, and lacked a little in the way of interpersonal and communications skills, it was comforting to know that the smartest of the smartest had
come to power!
And today as I slept while listening, I dreamed I was in a big beautiful city, although I took a bad wiff from a car exhaust (need to quit smoking)
The Way to The Enlightened Mind
, to Buddha-mind.
For those interested in developing a "practice" using this tool, but who desire more information and knowledge and wisdom, in terms of following the
path or "the way" of Buddhism and in particular Zen Buddhism, I cannot recommend enough the Big Mind / Big Heart
process by Genpo Roshi - in
particular, the following two DVDs (linked below)
And since this wonderful tool (Bach To The Future) has been made available absolutely free of charge, as a means by which to access the no-mind/Big
Mind brainwave pattern of deep meditation, the relatively minor cost involved in acquiring ALL the needed information, (and let's face it, whether in
book form or workshop or attending a retreat of some kind, there's always a financial cost involved) to fully access The Path or The Way, is in my
mind, a no brainer (quite literally!)
Having just finished reviewing the DVD's, I'm dumbfounded, that the Big Mind/Big Heart process can be facilitated by just watching a DVD series, but
it can, and in fact, does a better job of it than actually attending one of his workshops, which I did just a little over a week ago, for which I paid
600 bucks and then there was the hotel, meals etc. so it probably ran me aboutj a grand total (but it was fun!).
1) BIG MIND BIG HEART REVEALED
2) THE PATH OF THE HUMAN BEING
Again, I cannot recommend these two DVD sets enough, to aquire the whole toolbox for appropriating an effective spiritual practice via Zen Buddhism.
These guys spend YEARS sitting on their asses to pass this knowledge along to us, from the Buddha himself all the way down, and it's nice to see that
the tradition and the teaching is still alive and well, and readily available to the Western mind (for about the cost of a dinner for two at a
reasonably nice restaurant).
