ZEN IS UNDERSTOOD TO [BE] ...

  concerned mainly with SELF AWARENESS.

     [IT] aims to transform man's consciousness

  about himself/herself and the universe.

     Although the same character for ZEN and CHAN is used in  

   writing, they are pronounced differently in each language,

   but both ZEN and CHAN were originally derived from the

   Indian word dhyana, which means "meditation".  ZEN

   Buddhism however, claims to transmit the essence of

   Buddha by allowing the individual to experience the 

   enlightenment which Buddha attained, such that ZEN 

   IS entirely different from Indian meditation.



   THE WORD Buddha in Sanskrit means "aware" and

THE LESSONS OF SILENCE ...

      are peerless and are unmatched by anything else under Heaven





       This English translation and in turn, the Chinese interpretation of the symbolic

       characters which are there for ALL to read, if they traverse the 6293 granite steps

       leading to the summit of the, sacred to the Chinese, mountain of Taishan in

       Shandong province, are WORD of WIDOM in[DEED].

       … IT IS for ALL members of our species, as individuals, to truly understand the

       underlying purpose of why those Chinese symbolic characters were carved into

       the stone in the first instance, before the goal of the wisdom of knowledge of

       understanding can be attained.…

THE degree of absence of thinking IS ...

  THE arbiter of ultimate spiritual awareness 

   As Lloyd Steven Sieden has so succinctly proposed in the Chapter entitled

   Conscious Thought, in his book Buckminster Fuller’s Universe ...



  "Another facet of thought which Fuller believed to be extremely important 

   was imagination. The root of the word imagination IS IMAGE, and Fuller

   defined imagination as the uniquely human ability to create an image.

   Through years of personal experience and observation, he came to believe

   that the human capacity to think and create…

DYMAXION MAP • DETAILS ENLARGED

  BECAUSE SO MANY modern human activities affect not only local

  communities but the entire Planet, Fullers Dymaxion Map has

  proved especially beneficial to individuals involved in planning.

  People who forecast future trends and devise strategies involving

  global issues find the Dymaxion Map particularly helpful because

  [IT] allows them to observe all Earth’s landmasses portrayed in

  accurate relationship to one another.



  As a result of his study of and work within the maturing field of

  aeronautics, Bucky began to appreciate the aeronautical perspective

  that both the land and water areas of the surface of the Earth 

  provide the inner boundary of an always available, yet only recently

  discovered and utilised, unbroken…

LOVE IS THE OPERATING SYSTEM

  A NEW PHASE in the evolution of human civilization is on the horizon.

  With deepening states of crisis bringing unrest to all parts of the world,

  there is a growing need for change in our ways of thinking and acting.

  We now have the choice of either spiraling into deepening peril, or

  breaking through to a world of dignity and wellbeing for all.



  Throughout its history, humanity has been guided primarily by a material

  consciousness. Fearing scarcity, we have continued to pursue material

  gain beyond necessity, taking from others and depleting the Earth’s

  natural resources. If our aspirations continue to focus only on what is

  material and finite, our world will face inevitable destruction. 



  What is our true nature? 



  In order to make more enlightened choices and change the course

  of our history, we need to return to the basic question concerning

  human life. Each…
