Wet Mind and Dry Judgement

This year’s freak weather is not kind to the nature.   Nor to the farmers who grow corn,

but in the same weather said have brought a bumper harvest to the strawberry growers.

The situation seems to be the same all over the world.   Hence, it said to have brought big profit to the

commodity speculators who [rightly] speculated to have corn shortage and its price up.

Whether it is right or wrong, it is always the case, somebody’s misery is some other’s god opportunity.

This is the hard fact, as the weather is.

Then bring an argument to those situation is either emotional or in moral issue

—– both based on the Wet Mind.

Because of the dry weather, the plants on this patch of the land here couldn’t succeed.

In fact this year they failed twice. —– once the weeds grown to a feet high, then the dry spell on April

wiped them out.   And after a short but pretty heavy wet weather, some plants shot up again —– then

they are all dead now. === is rather prosaic description of what happened here.

From this desiccated scene, may be I should create quite emotional, wet stories such as how I feel sad

while imagining a pleasure to see wild green, mentioning the glory of the sun and the joy which the nature

has been brought me over the years, and so on.

—– wet stories appeal to the readers, who is seeking sweet story

and a moment of consolation in the cyberspace.


Despite we are living in the environment of  90%  Hard, Dry Facts,  our mind seemed to have

90% of  Wet Thinking / Wet Mind —– because we don’t see the Dry Fact in Dry —– We are seasoning it

with wet, slimy source, mostly to sweeten it. —– On top of it, before cooking and seasoning them, we are

conveniently selecting them to meet our taste.    (Hence, sweet blog is more popular 🙂 )

Then, end of the day, we have to face Dry Fact and forced to give Dry Judgement — if the judgement

was not Dry enough, it will fail and Boomerang.

I know, Dry Food is hard to swallow, Dry Fact is hard to see though, anyhow  it  IS  Dry —– to

see the world as it is,  the first step to avoid to hit by a Boomerang = have a long-term peaceful life,  in stead of

temporary comfort —– which need to have some practice.   ( to begin with,

to know how sweet your taste,  and the favourite source is   😀 )

      Its funny, while I was typing new post [RIOT], this comment arrived —– how timely.
      Even funnier is, who taught you that ?
      Kids are nothing to do with Zen. Zen needs to have long practice. 😀
      ( If Kids can do it, I didn’t need to spend 30 years 😀 )

      Buddha took his small son Raghla to make him a bhikku when Raghla asked him “May I inherit your legacy”
      which meant be the Royal succession (by the ex-wife’s instigation —- otherwise Shakya klan will be finished).
      Raghla took another 20 years to reach enlightenment.
      If a Kids’ naivities is the Zen, there couldn’t be any difficulty of the Buddhist study —– of cause, to a kind of belief, looting mind of kids is Zen, it must be unique to ShittiZen ! Ha, ha, ha, 😀
      (Self-evident isn’t it. Or you must be very honest man to what you studied, rather than naive 😀 )

    hmm maybe what shittizen is saying is looting in mushin is what these kids maybe doing? 😛

      Long time ago, I wrote about this issue using a metaphor of [Room A] and [Room A’] both looks identical.
      The Buddhist’s mind process starts from 1(one), by desisting or negating it, it become -1, then negating
      its idea itself, it mean -1X-1=1 —– on the end it looks the same 1 as before. Though, looks is just on the
      face, its subliminal meaning of 1 is no longer the same. —– because of the Mushin, the enlightened
      person wouldn’t care the matter, —– ignorant onlooker may mistake it as the Kids’ ignorance is same as Mushin. 😀 😀
      ( Wether it is Game or real looting, a person has to concentrate to do it, no margin of mistake ——
      this is a kind of Mindfulness. Concentrating an act of looting which derived from greed, it is too remote
      from the Mushin —— Mushin starts from Mushin (no emotion, no desire, no greed) )

    As it is, the person can, step by step walk toward the Enlightenment.
    Yet still, some others were stuck with own gluey wet mind / arrogance and
    left out of the path.
    Every body live accordance with their own Karma
    which was given to him by the Dharma. Don’t interfere it.
    Enlightenment mean, know the self = it is the person’s own business.
    Buddha couldn’t enlighten Chuli Pantak. Buddha only suggested him to
    sweep the garden —— then he got it by himself (10 years later)
