Halogen And Dead Mosquitoes

In the fields of ‘spirituality’,
He who reaps is he who affirms.

The more a protagonist will be assertive and peremptory,
The greater the influx and ardor of those who see themselves as disciples.
This ‘master’ embodies the mechanism of doubt.
And this for two reasons: this is why he actually is in great danger.

-The mechanism according to which doubt has always sought a resolution in the affirmation capable of allaying it, is the reason why the disciples, lost, entangled in the games of mirrors, projections, themselves playing out inner scenarios,

Will tend to play the asserting role.

In Zen, the tone is often deliberately peremptory, which has its effect: the disciples twirl around, channeling their attention, the mosquitoes find a reason for being in the light bulb,

On the halogen, full of dead mosquitoes.

This master-bulb/disciple-mosquito correspondence is also observed within the master alone: he himself is bulb and mosquito.

Let’s here the framework of Zen chosen for the example.

He affirms, gives away the injection bringing momentary appeasement.

The phenomenon of self-conviction can be observed in all traditions. As we have said elsewhere in these pages, the preacher – especially the exalted type – is often the recipient of these own words.

    1. The preacher speaks for himself.
      If he could hear his own words, then he d remain quiet.
      His ongoing talk is a strong indicator the message has not been received.
      I guess you have to walk the thin line between being disciple and being disciplined.
      I don’t believe Diogenes wpis have called his follower ‘disciples’.
      Has Jesus ever done so?
      I would be surprised if he had.
      Not even ‘apostles’..(?)

      (I’m not able to check messages as often as I m used to these days so forgive me if I do not answer shortly)
