Friday 55: Conundrum



The students gather around the

Zen master. Worldly events and

Passions do not disturb him.

He raises his hand to

No man, and similarly, is

Never controlled by desire for

A woman. He practices non-

Attachment in all things. He

Is splendid and has achieved

A state of bliss. Or,
He is simply comatose. Who
Can say? This is awkward!

I've never understood that desire, to rise above all emotion and passion, to ignore and turn your back on the physical reality of this place. To not be. We are only incarnate for a short time. I say embrace it.

Good question! Is there such a thing as too much peace??

Awkward...LOL, that's good, but probably just practicing that non-attachement that we all strive for and fall short of...great 55!

And apparently there is a little old guy somewhere who has not eaten since 1969, but is doing better than the average happy 10-year-old.
