great metaphysical question. I didn't know they had Zen in the 60's :-D

Some Sufi Reggae for you, Ali.
I don't know if they had that in the 60s either.

Dear Mushtaq,
It was HU who put the Bomp in...
(But of course you knew that! All good Sufis do!) :)

I think it was " Hu, Hu, Hu wrote the book of love"

Dear Mushtaq,
Yes, that too, and what a great song it is!! :) S

Dear Mushtaq,
I found this quote from a page of a Zen Calendar that I saved and for some reason put it in the bag that I used to store my snow pants in my car for winter emergencies. I took them out of my car to hang them in my closet this morning, and I found it. I thought it may be relevant. I have no idea who John Tarrant is, but these are his words:

"Koans will change your idea of who you are, and this will require courage...Everyone thinks they want happiness, but they might not. They might rather keep their stories about who they are and about what is impossible."
by John Tarrant

(I don't know when your birthday is but now I didn't forget either.)


Peace to you.
