Dave B:

What a predicament you have created for yourself, my dear friend. It is like a terrible beast is prowling toward you, already salivating over its moist and tender dinner. If you stay, the beast will surely devour you. But if you run, it will catch you in the blink of an eye.

You had best cease this idle chit chat and sort out what to do. Time is running out and no one here can help you.

"Your beating falls upon your own back, n yeti. Its clear a lack of conceptual thought is why he said no when he should have said yes. Or conventional conceptual thinking rather than metaphysical."


Unnecessary to assert any further conclusions on this one as my earlier assessment was just verified. Case closed.

I have had moments where I found the Zennists repetitive excursions and invested energy into the thorny and ghostly land of the spiritually lost questionable. With this I mean the Reddit crowd he often refers to, or others in his immediate surroundings.

Yet, having observed an increased mental lunacy spreading over the Internet, among some "islands" of spiritual isolation being the social networks and of course the various areas over the world, growing mega-cities, I now better understand his great effort to offer the simplest conceptual pointer towards the genuine buddha dharma with this blog and of course, over-simplified discourses on the unconditioned reality of its true splendor.

"David B: If someone gave you a Zen beating it would be an act of compassion."

Your beating falls upon your own back, n yeti. Its clear a lack of conceptual thought is why he said no when he should have said yes. Or conventional conceptual thinking rather than metaphysical.


"The reason he said "no" is he knee jerk reacted rather than stopping to think. The knee jerk reaction is of course a dog can't be or become a Buddha."

The idiots zen-idiom: When nothing I say is right, go wrong.
