Manifest this place of holding on to nothing at all and deepen from its wisdom...

Since we are all ONE, there is no self to realize, we came from nothingness and go back there. The false self world and its content - everything is illusion. If this is the case, why is this game of life-death-world-drama-separateness being played in the first place? what is the point?

The ego is a phenomena created by gathered knowledge since birth. The ego has as its base knowledge, which we can understand. Yet our true base is not about knowledge. Let go of all that you know once, and you will have confidence in your inner truth. Understanding is not conviction. So we need to sit zazen, letting go of all ideas, letting them dry up.

Due to Roshi's busy schedule this year, we are currently not accepting any new questions at this time
