Question

QUESTION (resumed) :
Une fois que l'on a retourné son regard vers soi-même et que l'on réalise que l'on "est" une sorte "d'espace" (en fait, l'unique espace), doit-on simplement approfondir cet état? ou au contraire cela doit-il aussi perdre toute importance? Devenir cette sorte de miroir 3-D ok, mais les phénomènes restent hors de contrôle. Ma conscience est certes absolument indéfinissable, un mystère en quelque sorte, mais je reste encore aussi médiocre et petit dans la vie de tous les jours? Demande éclaircissement.

I have lost my faith in chanting mantras or sitting because it had not made me any happier or wiser. I feel old and kind of burned out, I do not feel the slightest inspiration to sit zazen, chant mantras or ...

Through the thought without thought Direct your attention towards the inside To examine the divine spark When your thought cannot go farther It goes back to the source Where nature and form Noumene and phenomenon Are not two but one.
