Oops, it seems I caused some anxiety here. Sorry it was not my intention.
But you are right, I am just a Fool who knows Nothing...an irritating fly to be swished away by the horses tail.
Please forgive my intrusion onto your reality. I will leave you now to muse upon your own truth.

For us to know the meaning of "I", we must first know "Not I". Without "Not I" there is no meaning to "I".

"It is not that there is but one Mind, but that there is one Consciousness of which all minds are degrees of. Like the seeds in a sunflower, all are a different degree of the sunflower, but all are the sunflower."

New age crappola and ignorance at its best and another reason the zennist keeps repeating the same message again and again on his blog until the most thickheaded blockhead gets it.

Tell me fool, what is the main difference between Mind Only and Consciousness Only?

You could take a peek at the famous treatise on this subject by the spiritual chan-giant Tsung-Mi, where he completely obliterates any argument by the consciousness only followers, but then you would stand on the shoulders of a giant, merely pretending wisdom, as you do now, instead of sharing your own insight derived from even the tiniest glimpse into the singular reality of Mind Only.

It is not that there is but one Mind, but that there is one Consciousness of which all minds are degrees of. Like the seeds in a sunflower, all are a different degree of the sunflower, but all are the sunflower.

Zennist; Was this post written based on your direct experience and real attainment or was this post written from your understanding of the Diamond Sutra and other writings?
