Are you an expert????

A university professor went to visit a famous Zen master. While the master quietly served tea, the professor talked about Zen. The master poured the visitor’s cup to the brim, and then kept pouring. The professor watched the overflowing cup until he could no longer restrain himself. “It’s overfull! No more will go in!” the professor blurted. “You are like this cup,” the master replied, “How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup.”
From Anton: Do you think you are an expert??? If yes, in what?? -some stupid technology or business or money-making or brain washing or philosophy? How much do you know?? -unlimited memory space or expertise in logical thinking?.. Think, think... Why don't we flow in the path of river(life),  don't you think you are part of it? Always keep your cup empty. Maintain yourself in the Zero state, the point where the success and failures doesn't affect you. Think... Think.. Think.

Do we Time Travel???

At times, we all do time travel in our imagination. Most of us dream about the future, sometimes about the painful past and fewer times about the good times in our past!! Apart from our future and past, do we time travel to a different time period??? Yes, we do! Have you ever thought about the triggering factors in such time travelling??

     From my experience, the masterpieces of human art are one of the most powerful factors that can make us time travel. For example, James Cameron took us to a different world through his masterpiece "Avatar" (2009 Film). The masterpiece sculptures have the same power as well!
     Nature also has the power to make us time travel! In one of my previous blogs, I penned down my time travelling (pausing) experience through this conversational blog!
     The third and most crucial factor is our imagination. Even though imagination plays a vital role in the above two scenarios; those were triggered imaginations and were highly influential eit…

Am I traveling???

I'm in a bus and on my way to Delaware. There are different kind of people who travel along with me. I can see happiness in some faces, tiredness in few faces and some don't have any kind of expression looks like they are in balanced state. My neighbor is in deep sleep. I started starring outside.

Everywhere it's green and green:) my heart starts saying HELLO to the trees which passes by. There is a tree in the middle, it's the tallest among all the trees. But but... It is dying.. All the leaves are faded.. Yes, it's in her last days. My heart stopped there and started talking to this tree.

This tree lives here for few centuries. My heart tries to read her thoughts. It seems to be in a very balanced state. My heart starts asking several questions.

Anton : Hey you looks so amazing. You are the tallest one among your friends!

Tree : Ha ha ha!

Anton : Excuse me! Why are you laughing?

Tree. : I know the truth. I only have few hours or few days!

Anton : .... Do you h…

What came first EGG or HEN???

Two men were arguing about a flag flapping in the wind.

"It's the wind that is really moving," stated the first one.

"No, it is the flag that is moving," contended the second.

A Zen master, who happened to be walking by, overheard the debate and interrupted them.

"Neither the flag nor the wind is moving," he said, "It is MIND that moves."
From Anton: Even if you get a definite answer.. Lets say the Egg came first. Or The wind started first. What is the point??? What do you understand? or What do you gain? Think, there are so many mysteries in the nature. And you are part of nature.. Realize yourself!
