Seems like zen has come up a few times recently. I have a lot of zen and zen compatible books. I could throw up a paragraph every once in awhile like once a week if enough people are interested.

I do not know how many people here outside of myself, and 3 others who are interested in spiritual teachings not found in the Bible.

I do not want to barrage the board with this stuff or waste my time typing it either unless quite a few are interested.

Let me know.

One thing I would like to know is what is the sound of one hand clapping?

I think that is a zen concept.

Oh OK, thats what I thought. I was making it too complicated. It's simple.

I am not a zen expert, but a student. It says in 'zen mind beginners mind' that a beginner mind has many possibilities where the expert has few and to seek always to have a beginner's mind.
