This discussion is open to all Mahayana, Vajrayana, Theravada, Other Religious Frameworks, and Your Own Unique Perspectives.
This is also a topic that has been arising lately in different forms and so I can imagine this will be a great discussion :anjali:
I had an experience a few days ago that I will most likely bring up with Shoryu Bradley (A Zen Teacher I Respect) and possibly some other authorities on the subject.
I was at the lake and if I remember correctly had been doing some Zazen in the forest in between quiet swimming and just enjoying the solitude and peaceful/restful nature of the area.
I am not sure what was going on at the moment but in a flash the need to hold onto "Awareness" & "Life" in any form kind of dropped off.
I came to understand that Sentience & Insentience kind of drop off in Emptiness.
Feel free to share all your views, sutras, tantras, quotes, whatever.
In general I would love to see how this develops.
