What is Zen?

Hi all,
These short video’s by Hyon Gak Sunim, explains what is Zen.  Although Zen is an experience to be experienced by a person, I feel Hyon Gak Sunim encapsulates true meaning of what Zen is.
“What am I ?” when we truly ask ourselves this…….. And turn the view inwards, thinking gets cut off, that ‘void’ before thinking arises again is our true self (Zen)……. Beautiful!

CE-5 Protocols for ET Contact.

Hi all,

I am going to share this experience I had three days ago with you all.

I have been familiarising myself with CE-5 Protocols introduced by DR Steven Greer, CE-5 stands the shortened version of Close encounters of the 5th kind (Initiated contact) by us, There are loads of videos on youtube etc about the protocols on how to initiate contact with the Extra Terrestrials.

 

For the past week, I had been trying to initiate peaceful contact in day time, using Robert Bingham’s method, of looking to the sky and telepathic invite the ET to come to my location and show themselves to me in the sky, I have been doing this for 8 days and still ongoing, but for now, I haven’t had any sightings to report, I’ll keep you posted if I do.

 

During my research, I came across Dr steven Greer’s method of CE-5 protocols, Dr Greer, introduced these protocols approximate 20 years ago, he is also the founder of CSETI.

Anyway, I watched a few videos from people that had tried this method of contact and it had worked for them, so I prepared myself that I was going to try it on a clear night sky (Recommended by the protocols)

I used my mobile phone to play the meditation video with Dr greers voice with soothing background music on it and sat down out my garden and let myself go while listening to the mediation video.  I felt very relaxed and peaceful, and  I projected telepathically   love and respect for our star visitors friends.  I felt we are all one with the universe, and that their could hear my thoughts of love and respect for all things.

After the video finished playing DR Greer voice, they still continued with the peaceful soothing music for a while. (One of the Protocols, is that you can do this in a group or by one self, and Dr Greer often use a laser light pen tool, to signal to them for them to make contact back)

So As the music was playing, and I looked up at the night star light sky, I then looking towards one spot in the sky, I couldn’t see any light or star, but I thought I would try and use my mobile phone to make a signal using the light from it.  So I signaled a few times, in the spot of night sky where I was looking, when suddenly! A Big bright light from the same spot of the sky lit up and dimed and then a smaller light up accompanied with a small streak of light. There was no sound, in fact the whole experience felt rather silent and smooth, it was mesmerizing!! And I felt blessed, as if they were acknowledging me, that’s what it felt like.

Session 2:

Tonight at 10.40pm, I went through the protocols once again by Meditating, this time I waited a bit longer, more like 10/15 minutes, before I seen any sightings, I seen three planes pass by, but then an orb like star that was moving to quick to be a satellite and when I signalled to the orb in the night sky, It flashed two big flash back and then disappeared.

 

I must say, I was rather surprised to have had experienced what I have so far, but to sum it up, what a beautiful experience it has been so far, I will continue the CE-5 protocols on clear night skies and as I learn more, and hopefully experience more, and find my own custom way from start to finish of a Contact session, by tweaking some bits of the protocols to go with what feels good to me and what works…I will share this with you.

All sounds a bit far fetched????    Believe me or not! But it’s true,  there are hundreds of people having the same experiences all around the world with this, and similar contact methods………..

But For now my friends! Thank you for reading and the meditation video that I followed is below, many thanks and take care, Lance.

Hyon Gak Sunim (A Korean Zen Modern day Monk)

Hello all, Here is two great video’s of Hyon Gak Sunim (a Korean Zen Buddhism, Modern Monk)

He is a great teacher.  I Love his way of teaching, I find he put’s Zen’s teachers/Meaning, in a way that people can understand……. The first video is an interview with him and the second is a day in a life with him.

Interview with Hyon Gak Sunim.

“In this program, Dennis Wholey has a conversation about Buddhism with Hyon Gak Sunim, guiding teacher of the Seoul International Zen Center at Hwa Gye Sah Temple in Seoul, South Korea. Topics of discussion include the principle of nowness; the meaning of dukkha; the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path; Buddhist resonances with the teachings of Jesus and Socrates; the Buddhist temple experience; how Hyon Gak Sunim, raised a Roman Catholic in America, came to Buddhism; and the popularity of Buddhism in the 21st century. The program also goes inside the Center’s temple to illustrate aspects of Buddhist worship.” (27 minutes)

 

“Mirror Of Zen”

 

 

“Zen’s ancient teachings seem a mystery to many. But actually, Zen is very simple: Zen means attaining my true self — “What am I?” In this revolutionary film by acclaimed filmmaker Christine Schmitthenner, we see a Western Zen monk in his daily activities in the world: chanting, meditating, preparing breakfast, riding public transport, meeting with friends, even shaving his head — from moment to moment, not attached to conceptual thinking, everything is Zen, which just means everything is “moment.” The subject of this unusual film, Hyon Gak Sunim, allowed filmmakers to follow his daily living and teaching activities for a week as he met with students and organized his daily activities. Sunim is widely recognized as one of the most influential Zen monks in modern Korean Buddhist history, a graduate of Yale and Harvard who entered the monastic life in 1992 and has done over 20 years of intensive Zen training in the ancient Zen temples of Korea. His enlightenment was certified (“inka”) in a public ceremony in 2001 by his teacher, the legendary Zen Master Seung Sahn (1927-2004). Now based in the West, he wanders the world, teaching wherever invited.”
