I love music 🎵 🎼 🥰
It was the first thing that show me my true nature.
Every time I hear music I’m still very overwhelmed.
I don’t listen to music from my ear here and the music there.
When there’s music, I am right in the middle of the music, like the best seat in the orchestra, the position of the conductor on stage, hearing everything.
There’s no filter when I listen to music.
I become the music.
The music is me, literally.
There’s no hearer.
There’s no ear.
It’s just music.
Music and music.
Just my true nature as music,
I’m right there,
as emptiness, as music, as whatever u name it,
So sublime, so incomprehensible, yet more real than anything real in life.
The day this happened,
I was very shocked,
Biggest shock of my life.
Because no one told me about this. Lol.
So I keep playing the music..
how come like that ? How come?!! How come I am in the music?
How come Buddha never say? I will become the music ? 🤨
So this means I’m not in my body? Geezus?! So this is no self?! Huh?!
I have never listen from my ear ever again.
And I always will have the best seat in town
😎😝

Very good sincere sharing. Chatted with Frank a few years back, he told me he formally practice meditation 1-3 hours daily for about 7 years before he realised anatta. So u can see from all his writing he will never speak of “no practice”.
Plus he is a classical musician trained to a very high level. To get there, These ppl practise more than they sleep I think.

You must exhaust the seeker like lifting weights until failure over and over. You put in max effort effort until it becomes effortless.
It’s like learning any other skills, you have to practice and learn classical paintings and music before the knowledge seeps down from your pre frontal cortex to your brain stem so you can paint abstractly or play free style jazz without thinking and be in the Flow.
At first you need to apply knowledge to the pre frontal cortex to “learn” by thinking, rationalizing (most seekers never go beyond this point).
So the knowledge begins with the mind and then seeps into the “gut” (waking up in the mind, the heart, and the gut) and finally you let the wisdom penetrate the deepest part of your being at the cellular level. When the wisdom rewires even the brain stem which controls movements, then spiritual kunts can finally, after Vipassanalizing and performing micro surgery on your own neurons to dissolve that last spec of solidity and realizing that even the last particle you are still holding on to is not in their control, then the last spec of the doer dies. And there is no choice but to let go and #surrender completely.
So you can’t exactly “flow” or say to be “Realized” until the “knowledge” becomes a lived and embodied moment to moment experience, when Realization is seeped deep into your entire being and experiential structure, which creates all of Reality.
Realization is physical, visceral, kinetic and embodied. When you walk it’s the whole universe walking as your #DharmaBody. It’s not abstract at all.
awakening is a physical process and thoughts and ideas about Reality or Consciousness is mostly irrelevant.
Physically shred away every spec of solidity in your body mind like Michelangelo chipping away the marble to reveal the formlessness underneath to reach “God” or the full Natty state.
You’re tempering with the hardware by transforming your entire nervous system, not simply altering the icons and interfaces on the screen.
Although by the time you reach the ______ the duality between physical, mental, and spiritual completely breaks down. There’s neither the software or the hardware! Content nor context.

    And that is also "no practice" of zen, not the slackz ard and day-dream that one is already liberated.

      John Tan yes the “no practice” idea in modern spirituality is v rampant and
      Ppl actually believe 😂😅
    • John Tan
      Yin Ling Yes. Life as human form is precious, should not come confused and go not-knowing. We must learn how to appreciate and use this precious human life for practice.

      John Tan I fell for it. Only when I read Nisargadatta's book did I realized that I had bought into a delusion. 🤦‍♂️😅
      So glad I realized it then and not later. At least now I can put in the effort needed.

      There’s really too much of this no practice talk around, can’t blame u.
      Frank is actually practice more intensely than he protrays on social media.
      When I spoke to him, He actually advised me do a 8-10 hours retreat for ten days few times a year.. because that was what he did few times a year for a few years.
      And he told me he will read 3-4 hours of dhamma or philosophy books a day on top of his practice, if not he is not comfortable .. so he will read in the queue before going into a bar 🤣
      And he walks around doing self inquiry. So he practises all the time .
      That is probably from his long years of doing violin too. He said he Woke up super early as a child to practice for hours before going to school to “get it out of the way”.
      Meditstion probably remind him of the same thing.

    Like doesn't fit into what u realized...
    无心听禅,禅在音声中。
    无心闻禅,禅在言语中。
    无心,处处是禅。
    如吕祖说, “对境无心莫问禅”。

      John Tan actually I’m not sure. I read as 无声无言 at first , but then I look again and thought why he wrote 无 in 2 different ways 😂
      So I take it as 有😂
    • Yin Ling
      But why ”对境无心莫问禅”
      Why cannot “对境无心即是禅”?
      Too deep already 😂

      Yin Ling 莫问 is more poetic..Haha
    • Yin Ling
      John Tan to me “莫问” feels like ”don’t need to talk about” 😂
      So wonder why don’t need to talk about? It’s exactly 禅 what. …

Quite excellent and clear in his insights imo.
29 minutes onwards .. so clear.
Coincidentally was talking to Victor Wt Choo about the 2 key ignorance of 1) duality (self and other) and 2) inherent existence that cause us to grasp and fuel our suffering. Which is what Frank Yang use “arrow of attention” vs “the source of clinging” aka “subject and object” aka “foreground and background”.
So practise always need to target these two problems so we also talked about how to deconstruct the subject side first with either vipassana - investigate what is “self” by scanning the whole body inside and outside sensation and then rest in the space ..
Or ask “who is doing the listening?” or
“where is awareness? Is it together with sound or separate from sound, if separate, where?”
Then victor looks like he wants to puke so We stopped and gossip 🤣🤪
