Someone asked Yogananda if there is a Hell. He replied, Where do you think you are?

Useful post. I would elaborate just a bit and say: The PERSONAL moment, OF MY here and now boils down to this: My MIND AND body AND ITS IMMEDIATE AND PERCEIVED SURROUNDINGS is undergoing change.

This would seem to be a natural extension of the belief that samsara and nirvana are nondual. Is that what you are saying? I can imagine it being hard to swallow for a lot of casual American Buddhists ;-)

What you do is the good work of compassionate man, trying to show a group of apes the intriquing virtues of higher math. Good luck!

Good post. This is a very common mistake for most western zen practitioners. Many so-called teachers also fall into this trap.
