Question

Dear Kosen, I'm from Brazil! That does not prevent me from loving you! Yes, this is strange! I'm male and I can asure you: heterosexual! This love has not to do with sex. . . just to make things clear!But when I watch your videos. . . see your smile and the beauty of your words. . . I can't avoid this feeling of love. . . maybe give you some flowers. . . ask to clean your shoes. . . to do something to demonstrate the happiness and blissfulness to be with you. . . in person or just through videos and writings. You are a great teacher of life in itself, even as you are in zen Master clothes. Yes, because the beauty of your natural way and behavior are beyond Zen. But I love Zen. The zen of Sawaki, Deshimaru and Thibout. So I love the truth itself.I can afford to go to France and will go in the first opportunity. . . maybe in Argentina when you come to South America. My country has so much potencial for you here. I know this.My dear Kosen, please, receive my love, gratitude and respect. Believe me, they are sincere and from my heart. I hope you accept and understand these lines. . . I felt this tremendous energy of love that made write this. I've never told or wrote to any man saying I love him. Because I never had the will to do it. This is a strange world. Your disciple (some day, i'm sure)  Marcio
