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 !
