David Weinstein taught last week. (hear his dharma talk here). One thing that he said that evening and that he has said before, that has been clanging around the think pump more than usual, is "what you think is none of your business". Recently I have noticed how my thoughts seem more like traffic than an imperative order. Just rushing by. I also like how this underlines a theme I have been hearing more lately, which is the blurring distinction between you and me. If my thoughts are not my business and nor are yours, then where am I?
“A Course on Koans” is the delusion-riddled work of Chris Kufu (“Wind in the Void”) Wilson, who began practicing Zen in 1967. He regards Taizan Maezumi, Robert Aitken, and David Weinstein as his root teachers. Each of them pecked at his shell until he “completed” the never-ending koan curriculum of the Harada-Yasutani lineage.
