Yoshizen's Blog

Cyber Space / BLOG-SPHERE

To see is its OK there,  I’ve Googled and clicked  [ kinetorori ] , —— in my amazement,

I found there are 200 items under this key-word. —— What ? How come ?

There are only 2  kinetorori in the whole Syber Space.  One is my Youtube name.  And other is in a post

of this blog where I’ve talked about an image I had put into Youtube.

Out of two how  those 200 items  bore out ?   ( I haven’t clicked  those, I don’t know what they are  😀 )

Another funny finding was, the collection of the comments I had put to the other blog-site, such as

[ tokyo 1000 ]—— Yah, I remember certainly I did. —– After many months, and reading back those,

I found its rather fun  😀  ( It’s in the [ backtype.com ]—– in the first page of [ yoshizen blog ] at Google )

( Of cause, the original exchange of comments with reference photo has more fun at [ Tokyo 1000 ]. )

We are in a strange false environment or utterly artificial communication sphere.

I have virtually no idea who this  Tokyo 1000 is.  If I bumped him on the street or even in an exhibition space,

I don’t think I ever exchanged single word with him.  Nor, even if I saw a notice of his photo exhibition

in an art listings,  I don’t think I ever attempt to go there.  Simply, because I don’t know him.

Since when we are in our far ancestor’s time ( kind of animal then 🙂 ) we keep so-called Psychological

distance to each other, —– closer relations to alien.  Distance is proportional.

So far I picked up some clue about this man  Tokyo 1000, he lives in Tokyo, 24 years old University student,

a mountain trekker, ex(?)- graffiti artist,  etc. ( Of cause I can read a bit more between the lines and able

to guess something from his photos though ) —– Yet, two people who are having totally different life,

still able to share a topics and freely exchange opinions in equal ground —— How democratic !

—– What intrigued me about this  Tokyo 1000 was, a  man who didn’t have any knowledge about

photography,  just started to take picture and blogging. —— rather successfully  🙂

thanks to a pretty well designed small camera.

To be naive, often exposes the truth, true nature and the true self.  Because there was no prerequisite

thoughts or pretense which clouding the eyes.  ( But rest of time, the picture is utterly dreadful.  😀 )

All about photography is, —– how to see the subject. 90% of How is the reflection of the personality

of the photographer / author.  ( And rest of  10% is the limitation of both subject and the camera ).

——- Yet still, regardless who he is, I could make quite funny comments,  thanks to this Cyber Space.

( rather ilresponsively  😀 —— hence, it is fun to read )

After all,  both of us are anonymous,  neither photos or scripts having such as copyright issue, and able to

make fun of each other —— then somebody else also came into the game, and made fun of us using

our materials and created yet another space for AD.

Whats so ever,  if there wasn’t WordPress  ( and they ( accidentally ) created Blog-site of mine ) there was

no Yoshizen ever appeared in this world. —— and I might have remained silent ( So, the world could

have kept its peace. — Ha ha ha  😀  )

Only a drawback to do Blogging is,  it consume a bit of time,  especially for a non native English speaker,

typing by one finger while making funny mis-spelling —– is not easy business.  Though, one reader said

funny mis-spelling is a part of fun here.—– m m m ?   Thank you very much.  Quite an encouragement.

Life having quite unexpected twist and turn and above all, a fun hidden in its sleeve.

—– Incidentally,  Tokyo 1000 suddenly stopped to post new photo, and its happened when it got

158th post —– m m m ? ? ?  ( Please refer to 8150 Story ) —– was this a halt by the Dharma ?

( I hope, he is still alive and kicking, expecting to have fun-full festive season with his girl friend —–

question is which one ?  🙂  )

Flow

An ologist described the 20 century is the first time ever the Buddhism was discovered as its entirety.

In certain extent I can see the point and agree with this.

All the ancient mantras were written as ” Buddha said “ —— and each sect read the certain selection of

mantras as their holy books without questioning or knowing what is the origin or relation to others.

But now, the scholars and researchers who are studying Buddhism, can see all the Buddhism scriptures

in Pali, Tibetan, Sanskrit, Chinese and modern English, German etc  while reading them

in comparison or chronological order.

I’ve read may be only fraction of total volume still, when I read another translation, I realized the more

likely meaning or understanding —— and I went back to the original idea —— if it is common

to all the sect’s, it must be closer to the original teachings, and if it was far-fetched idea it couldn’t be

the Buddha’s own teachings since Buddha didn’t teach educated people but to the ordinary folks on the

street or in the field, it should be based on the common sense.

—— Buddha wanted to save the suffering people not the well off educated.

Regardless whether rich or poor, still human mind and its mechanism is common to everybody and that is

where Buddha started, and gave the deepest insight. 

And those insight is what we can rediscover today as Buddha taught ” Observe it by yourself “.

And it made us even amateurs able to study by ourself in our own way, based on our own life.

( ” Follow the facts you experienced, not the scriptures ”  is also Buddha’s teaching, since

everybody got their own Karma which is unique to the person, hence one’s Nirvana too )

Hence the explosion of the Buddhism / Zen blogging.     And the creation of  Zen blog sphere.

——-

——— I found in the Blog sphere, somebody try to explain the mind in creative front, using the word Flow.

When our mind freely flow without stuck to an idea or things we can be most creative.

Thanks to comprehensive coverage of the observation of human mind and the phenomena, by  Buddhists

it is not difficult to relate this to the Flow of mind and the changing phenomena / nothing stays the same ——

hence a mind, stuck to a moment couldn’t see the truth, it needs the mind of  Mushin / No-mind / Anatman.

——— And in the other spot, somebody explaining the understanding or true meaning of this  No-mind.

As I wrote somewhere in the earliest post, the Buddhism is a way of the Psychoengineering.

Not just a belief system or religion who is saying ” it might come as the God is there, if you believe” or

a Philosophy which saying ” look in this way —– so,you might able to see it in this way”

BUT  ” As you can actually change your perception / mind to see this, then you will see this”

Buddhism can change you / your life, since it will change your perception / eyes and the mind.

( This is the reason why the same technique has been used for a brain wash ——- but it wouldn’t be too bad

to wash your brain clean and see the world afresh  😀 ——- it looks nicer and more peaceful. 😀

Brain wash implant yet another crocked idea though,  Buddhism leave the cleaned brain to the person

enabling the person to see the world and himself by his clear eyes and make him to decide the way of life)

No-mind / Mushin is the core of the Buddhism teachings, hence it is the hardest part to understand

——– when you understand its meaning in real life, your perception has already changed.

( Your brain has washed ! ! ! )

It may sound strange though, this is the magic of the Buddha’s teaching.

And you may feel even more strange is, it is not to put or learn anything new or fancy idea

but just remove the occupying idea or view from your mind / brain ( hence nomind or default

state of mind) and create a free blank space which enable you to see or perceive your own idea,

creation,way of life, what-so-ever  in natural  FLOW.

So that, strangely,  it is the most easiest things to do —– as a small child is doing.  🙂

Try it your self —– safe to try it in your home  😀
