[the book of stone and sand is a book of 13th and early 19th century Koans which was posted on deoxy.org until it was taken down after 11/8 and is available other places] Zen Story: “A Zen Teacher saw five of his students return from the market, riding their bicycles. When they had dismounted, the teacher asked the students,“Why are you riding your bicycles?”

The first student replied, “The bicycle is carrying this sack of potatoes. I am glad that I do not have to carry them on my back!” The teacher praised the student, saying, “You are a smart boy. When you grow old, you will not walk hunched over, as I do.”

The second student replied, “I love to watch the trees and fields pass by as I roll down the path.” The teacher commended the student, “Your eyes are open and you see the world.”

The third student replied, “When I ride my bicycle, I am content to chant, nam myoho renge kyo.”The teacher gave praise to the third student, “Your mind will roll with the ease of a newly trued wheel.”

The fourth student answered, “Riding my bicycle, I live in harmony with all beings.” The teacher was pleased and said, “You are riding on the golden path of non-harming.”

The fifth student replied, “I ride my bicycle to ride my bicycle.” The teacher went and sat at the feet of the fifth student, and said, “I am your disciple.””

The threat has been re-sent, exactly the same essentially, but no “via: oecd.org” this time, instead, “Mailed by: rentmen.com” which the front page says is a mail escort service. Do not know if this is an attempt to get me to take it as less sincere psyops, or more sincere threat (like “we can pay someone to do this”). Either way, it’s still utterly unclear what they want me to not do, nor what my sister possibly could have done, not who is speaking. 117 pm eastern. Some but not all details at:

(in the comments) Planning a more in depth story about this essentially when I feel like it.

I feel comfortable among the many eyeballs, as I am well rooted here and have spoken of this much already.

[edit: sound cloud thing does work even in wordpress app, if you FIRST click ‘listen in browser’ THEN play.]

4 different methods of poems +

Learned last night at the open mic that elephants can swim. Blew me away when it really registered, although at first I though nothing of it. Reposting this with an added poem (1st below), because apparently Google rejects things that are so thin on text. At least I think it’s that and not that I just hooked up publicize to Twitter, Facebook, tumblr and Google+. It would be irritating if syndicating none-too-frequent posts had the result of being penalized on SEO. :p

Discordian Postcard Conspiracy #202

SNAFUs are not always avoid-
able, yet should not be assu-
med to be inevitable. The bit-
bucket peeping toms continue
to feast on the still-living body
of Privacy & Human Rights.
There are treatments for brain-
eating amoebas & prions, are
there not? Aren’t there? Uh-oh….
Loop by samples, stop by scatt-
erings, set topwise ordinals
and tuck in the blues… None
are sharper than fungi & corv-
ids, but our dimensionally con-
strained perceptions can’t pro-
be that by conventional means….

Didn’t record all the details on this batch … probably someone involved in mindfulness or yoga training or research somewhere…

flip the bucket fire
ablaze the crackle shot moon
satisfying bang
