Everything read or heard is just a provisional teaching. Especially if it is coming from some unreliable source like me.
That said there are a lot of great provisional teachings out there.
I am grateful for the efforts Master Dogen and the folks who translated his works into English.
There is other great stuff out there, but when I need inspiration for my practice Dogen always does it for me.
Someone asked me "Do you know how to discover what true self is?"
I don't remember my answer. But it was likely something coy like:
"what is the true self?"
Thats kind of a lame answer now that I think about it. And I suppose I could have directed them to a chapter or a few of the Shobogenzo and told them "Look here!" But I don't know if that is really in the proper spirit of things either.
So, and this is likely not original at all either, My recommended instructions for discovering the true self are as follows:
Familiarise your body/mind with The Rules for Sitting Zen, then just allow everything that is not your true self to drop off.
This may take some time, and your results may differ.
All the best,
