stupidity




a zen koan




is zazen screwed up yoga ? at least with yoga they move through different positions to get what are effective cardiovascular health promoting stretches and also make noises like ommm to stimulate the immune system in the nasal passages and lungs !


Tuesday, 20 December 2011



neo-advaita  speak,  not that different from zen actually ! well maybe a little different ! anyway it's killed zen, more clued teachers, not the stupid zazen bullshit and elaborate rituals


to be honest i feel more comfortable being the 7th patriarch of a decayed ruin !

transmission



kamakaze




the big thing in genpo "roshi's" favour is he is doing something for money which is sane ! it is insane to volunteer your life away to something worthless which both brad warner and i do so we have that in common


for all my failings i pay attention to my health so it's not quite rock bottom, but depressing all the same !


the body can be like a sound house that you always carry with you !


anyway the whole teacher student relationship is screwed and not part of 7th patriarch zen nor part of the sixth patriarch's agenda


what is called zen these days is a japanese sickness !

just visualise da free john/adi da /franklin jones whatever with short hair in that previous video clip and you will see him for what he is, a contracted, stupid old man ! prematurely aged too from whoring his whole life !


all these mythic people, buddha, jesus, da free john, even brad warner depend on the suppression of criticism, otherwise they just look like ordinary nits ! jesus was way malfunctional for sure ! buddha a prim arrogant shit and brad warner, well not too bright actually tho he has an intelligence of sorts !


lol, no replies i guess, once people realise they may be up on my web site for the next thirty years at least they get very reticent : o )


i keep all my data well backed up too, including a bootable hard disk copy (casper is very good !) !




yeah you have to delete  criticism  or he and you don't look so good do you ? as i said he's stuck INSIDE the house and it's why his life was so “unhealthy”, it's all toxic top to bottom and buyllshit to boot


HAH! i have been blocked from commenting !

cease




it's funny how the hardcore zen blog has become quite coherent after my little sojourn there


you can see them clearly for what they are, ordinary minds totally out of their depth with the subject matter and that includes the zen masters and i guess zen generally !




minds

i so love this  picture  "trees in the asylum" by van gogh


it's


zen


exactly !




found a bit of dogen that can be straightened out !




brad warner, some sensible advice for you down the bottom of my comment about your subtle use of policing on the hardcore zen blog


i bet you'd rather die than reply here wouldn't you ?


anyone ever tell you zero defects sucks? i mean honestly  : o )




2nd post deleted by barry graham, a good reply too


this fundamental inability to be objective about criticism means you can't have seen infinity/buddha properly by a long way


the only person i ever met who was able and encouraged this sort of thing was toni packer


i don't know of any zen teachers alive to day who can do this, george bowman i think was quite good but still had some boundaries


that's why i, since i am authentic zen personally appointed by the sixth partiarch and as such the only real lineage holder alive today have disapproved and deregistered all zen teachers, there are three not deregistered, bowman, rizzetto and tesuten, but they are not approved !


well i'm the boss and they know it, too scared to appear on here that's for sure, there is no comment moderation on this blog, just a long line of fakes and cowards reading it!


oh and plagiarists busy pinching my material !


haven't they read the blue cliff record or shinji shobogenzo? a whole generation of teachers not even worthy to to be castigised as pretending adepts !


yellow


bellies and wankers you are challenged ! if you are and good reduce me to a weeping ragbag ! : o )


you will be treated fairly here ! let's see you, but in actual fact you will do you best to keep things very quiet about me because i am so obviously your superior !


people like barry graham get publicized because his obvious flaws make him safe, but me, they just suppress publicity and plagiarize what their small minds are capable of !


which is not much !


anyone is , i won't say welcome, but certainly permitted to post/comment, in your shoes i would take advantage of it, but you are so scared of looking like the frauds you are you just look and don't participate in anything real which of course is why you are frauds in the first place like barry graham and just mouth platitudes and clich├ęs endlessly!

fellini




barry graham video  interview , glaswegian, he's not an idiot, quite interesting really, not the vapid non thinking twit so typical in zen ! absolutely intolerant of any criticism apparently from reading around on the web, might be to do with his upbringing which was very hard! i am going to withdraw his specific exclusion from zen, he's actually better than most !




this is a side of zen that is not really mentioned much but is very much what it is, in fact actually more so!

comment on a theological germanica paragraph "the two eyes of the soul of man cannot both perform their work at once"


Sunday, 27 November 2011


perhaps a more elegant  statement  about sitting, i'm not just stirring, it's really a huge issue of people going down the wrong road, zen for instance is just full of idiots regurgitating cliches ! i don't think  springwater  has the same issues, but all the same people do not look widely enough. life is some vast nutcase illusion : o (

meister eckhart sermon  15 


basically he says that if you're on the right track, something that seems a total waste of time like me posting on the hardcore zen blog, things shift and since there is some base guiding by infinity, you have worked through something to get to a better spot so in reality it wasn't a waste of time, but really a learning experiece you have to go through to get to a new level of understanding so to speak !


in the case of the hardcorezen blog thats seeing the utter rigidity of adults, the engraving of futilestupidity by zazen, how root situations cannot changed and religion is utterly and penally INSANE !


re that video, don't look at the pictures while listening to the sermon, tho they are interesting to go through and look at separately, they disrupt the sense of the sermon if looked at the same time, the speaking part has no music, but i quite liked the symphony no. 8, op. 124 by malcom arnold !


Wednesday, 23 November 2011


i don't think zazen is crazy, it really is crazy and makes for crazies !

ah i think the vision thing i don't have to discuss and actually it's best not discussed and actually the nature of these things is um they are not really conveyable anyway

and john of the cross's um picture of his vision doesn't convey much it actually takes the man who didn't have the vision, salvador dali to draw something


a reasonable translation of the platform  sutra

zen these days, a sheet of white paper with illegible drawls by colourless people !




mysterion writes ( on the hardcore zen blog)


"careful, your delusions of grandeur are showing through."


my reply:


you have never had an authentic vision so you will never understand !


i didn't want the transmission and didn't even believe in the mind to mind thing but it happened and i can't repudiate it so i am just doing things in a quiet way !




i'm going to approve tess hughes, she has had an authentic  vision


look for her in the panel on the right !


she actually saw something and was able to see what took her there and how to get back and remember it !

bearable




sitting: just going on the same  rails   to nowhere forever is not useful imo  : o )




since


infinite


possibilities


can


occur


then


infinity


can


occur


it's


such

a


wonderful


marvellous


thing !




“and with this "lite" zazen schedule, most participants have absolutely zero chance of reaching full enlightenment...they'll reach only "lite" enlightenment at best...”


all


zen

is


based


on


the


fiction


of


dogen


getting


enlightened


during


zazen


in


song


dynasty


china


in


fact


he


didn't


get


“ enlightened ”


until


several


years

before


his


death


and


it


wasn't


through


zazen !


it


was


through


thinking !


as


for


buddha


he's


just


a


story !

anything


about

here


can


you

just


ignore


me


and


go


on


digging


your

your


view


is


that


a

vision


occurs


in


existance


but


existance


occurs


in

a


vision !


Sunday, 16 October 2011



you


have


to


squeeze


something

it's

true


you

have


to


put


it


out

it


but


you


see


it


truely !


if


you

what


do


you

cowards


and


shitholes !




can't


handle


me


can


you


brad


what


r


u


doing


with


your


life ?


playing

a

game

on


zen ?



basically brad warner has been deregistered as a zen teacher because he's too stuck in voynich and pierre tesuten has been registered cause of a real poetic talent which makes the registration list: bowman, rizzetto and tesuten


all other zen teachers are deregistered and can engage with me on the blog comments if they wish to be registered


i

bet


not


one


of


these


deregistered


teachers


has


the


guts


to


front


up


here


up


thems


selves


wankers !



brad


warner


it's


interesting


what


upsets


you


you


are


pissing


your


life


away


on


something


futile


and


meaningless


teaching


voynich


to


nutters !


you


are


degregistered

a

s


a zen

the


seventh

the stupids posting stupidly endlessly how's that for in a aline zen teachers and students mutual suckers in a sucker's kingdom!

i


wonder


if


i


could


have


"7th


patriarch"


put


on


my


tombstone?


“ you


won't


have

a


tombstone ! ”



all


sitting

is


about


is


solitude


sitting


is


something


that


arose

a

s


a


cheap


way


of


keeping


monks


occupied


and


in


their


place !

Thursday, 13 October 2011


it's


not


that


zen


teachers


are

obscure


but


they


have


learnt


the


art


of


what

i

call


voynichese


that


is


they


have


learnt


the

art


of


rattling


off


bullshit


as


though

it

means


something !


Wednesday, 12 October 2011


in


three


hundred


years


people


will


be


claiming


lineage

from

it

go


wrong


again !

“those who greatly realize delusion are buddhas. those who are greatly deluded about realization are ordinary beings.”


the above is a bit of a crappy translation of dogen, my rectification is below !



to


be



a

buddha


is


to


understand


yourself

as



a process


of


mistakes


to


not


understand


yourself

as


a


process

of

mistakes


is


just


the


usual


human !


Monday, 10 October 2011


zen


is


not


meant


to


be


hidden


the


way


it


is !

zen teachers not deregistered


you'd think it would be simple but like everything else shades of grey rule !


registration is not the same as approval, i just think there's something to them and they are not the usual toxic blight that zen teachers are !


george bowman i like and think sorta on target, he would be better known except for his health dragging him back, thyroid issues ?


i also think diane rizzetto is helped in a real way by her work with developmentally disordered children and tho i don't know her, it seems she is worthy of being registered


there diane, what you haven't asked for but deserve !


she's dead now of course but i always though joko beck was an interesting on and off track, she was wrong about not reading and doing sitting tho, she did get the fundamental insight but was on the wrong road and kept to it !


toni packer who i approve is not a zen teacher so doesn't come under this ruling, one of her "dharma heirs" is also ok i think !


pierre tesuten has some sort of real poetic streak and is not deregistered ! anyone interested in this approval/transmission question, if it's given by humans and not infinity the bar is pretty low so to speak, most people could jump over the level i set if they are at all real which unfortunately is not the case at all !


so that's bowman, rizzetto and tesuten not deregistered, the rest are and if they want to contend they have to engage in some dialogue with me !


Andrew Levin  7th patriarch

spiritus  sanctus,  i have to be fair !


Sunday, 9 October 2011


me being mean to hildegard of bingen ! lol

this is a bit long so will post a link to my web page with it on, might do more of that in future !

hairspray jesus

appeal process against disestablishment !

any zen “teacher” claiming lineage descent or even claiming any right to teach at all can appeal against disestablishment by a bit of dialogue on this board, it will  soon   sort out !


for all the bullshit about dharma combat and the freeness of the old masters in different situations i can guarantee that not one has the courage to poke their nose onto the comments section of this board !


brad warner has, i am afraid, led the way, denial, censorship and suppression !



if


you


don't


get


the


drift


they

are


almost


all


purblind


fools


pretending


to


an


understanding


they


don't


have


and


certainly


don't


live


which


is


actually


proved


by


their


lack


of


participation


on


this


blog !

if


you


deny


me


as


the


seventh


patriarch


you


deny


infinity !


i


disestablish


every


zen


teacher


today


claiming


lineage


for

a


start !

there


is


no


method


to


shikantaza


it


is


neither


method


or


methodless !

i


think


brad

warner


is


censoring


me


being


the


7th


patriarch !


which


is


ignorant


as


i


am


the


only


approved


zen


“master”


alive


today


i'll


put


this


post


on


his


board


and


see


if


he


passes


it


or


not !


your


last


chance


brad !

shikantaza


has


no


reference


point


not


even


in


terms


of


an


adequate


description !

ok brad warner is DEREGISTERED from patriarch zen !


it's funny what it takes to upset me, he removed the post further below from his blog


that is, he's got some limitations and  i DON'T APPROVE HIM !


he's uncomfortable with my presence on his blog anyway, but i'm not posting there anymore, too painful to see really good posts of mine removed cause he's just the typical zen master wanker in the final analysis, when it comes ot the crunch they way they behaves sucks !


the


post he removed is


“last thought. i don't get why some of you think steve jobs is any less of a buddhist than you are just because he is a successful businessman. it could be he is a successful businessman because he is more of a buddhist than you are.”


zen is

not actually about buddhism or being buddhist !


at


least


in


terms


of


the


patriarchs !


yeah


i


know


if


you


have


money


people


worship


you !

a


real


vision


is


definitely


an


altered


state


of


conciousness


it's


quite


short


somewhat


dreamlike


and


has


a

very


heavy


semantic


content !


it's


that


semantic


synchronicity


with

infinity


that


is


really


important


and


can't


be


duplicated


or


faked !


it's


not


something


constructed


when


it


happens


you


will


know


and


be


very


surprised !

on being the 7th zen patriarch



“Tell us about your vision when you became the 7th Zen Patriarch.”



good question, i have thought about what i am going to say and really it's one of those things, you won't understand until you have had a real vision so i am not going to talk about it


you also need to understand what a vision is which is a direct communication by infinity or buddha to you so it's an exceptional event to exceptional people, i.e. those few who can see and accept their own crucifixion for infinity  : o )


it


happened


in


1990


and has


taken


21


years


to


make


sense

of


it !

being


the


seventh


patriarch


i


get



certain


privileges


in


heaven


though


i


draw


the


line


at


drinking


with


monkey !

zen


has


got


right


off


track


visions

are


extremely


important


i


don't


mean


hallucinations


or


substance


induced


i


mean


john


of


the


cross


stuff !

"orange blob andrew, why do you care sooo little about us as to hurt our eyes and brains with those endless one word/line posts?"


but


that's


zen


you


are


going


to


get


your


eyes


and


brains


hurt


or


more


truely


just


see


the


hurt


already there tho some extra hurt and a capacity to tolerate it is necessary


if


that


wasn't


the


case



everyone


would


be


enlightened !


i'm


not


the


seventh


patriarch


for


nothing


you


know !


maybe


it


is

for


nothing


: o )


(ed. note, i think i am going to duplicate this on the 7th zen patriarch blog to transit off the hardcore zen comments blog, let anonymous be king in brads realm !)

why i am the seventh zen patriarch

i had a vision in which the sixth patriarch authorised me to teach !


so i'm the seventh patriarch


i


really


am


wish


he


hadn't


done


that


btw


caught


me


unawares !


i


actually


have


come


across


one

other


instance


of


where


this


happened


in


zen


historically
