have i mentioned earlier movie
i was imagining that we would do well being ceremony today and people here read in tobacco
did you say no john
john briggs the having trouble hearing me
i was imagining that we will have a well-being ceremony today
have you been a bookcase and the netherlands
and and the pen
get somebody assign a name
hearing aids make your own voice sound very loud i'm having a little bit of a hard time hearing you even though next year
have you just me
others are shaking your head but that can turn into
how we have quite a few names on this list
so they don't need for name my list

i'm kicking them out
that made better than you here than i do
i am
a cup

there's so many things
then i kind of would enjoy expressing
one of them is
someone told me that she was in a situation where she was
in the presence of many people
had the same religion
and she felt on
she felt a wish that you know that the buddhist sangha was bigger
sometimes like in a country like america where there's so many people of the christian
our faith that the buddhist might seem rather small
the buddhist sangha may seem small in comparison
one of the things i say in response to this was on
the part of buddhism is to develop
an awareness that were somewhat afraid of being a small group
or an awareness that we might be afraid a small group in the middle of a big a big group that's different from us
hey it's kind of normal that humans would
if they feel like they're small or in a small group in the middle of a big group they might feel somewhat
what kind of like a whip are you could say almost like have evolved to be sensitive to that
and i also popped in my mind was when i first came to california i think i remember that eighty percent of the people in california were opposed to the death
to to the death penalty
the capital punishment and then
recently i heard it switched to eighty per cent were in favor
so when i first came to california for kind of comfortable being in the majority vis-a-vis capital punishment
most people would not want to execute me
most people do on executed
so you're not filling little less comfortable in that regard but i'm working on trying to relax with that
the bit the name in the minority these are the execution
a few other people agree with me let's let's not execute people but let's not kill
let's find some other way to deal with each other
but still i feel potentially a little discomfort that most people are gonna take no execution could be good
for is good
and then that's just another example of how we are where an on-site i'm in a little buddhist sangha in a big
other sanga
i'm not trying to get rid of that and be a big group i'm not going to switch to the big group or try to make the little group big so that i will be afraid anymore that's not my gender my agenda is to get over being afraid of being small and vulnerable
because really i am small and vulnerable
i'm tiny and vulnerable and i can be afraid of that but i want to
honor that fear if it comes up and by honoring that fear i would like to become three of it
that's what i came to practice to learn to be free of be afraid of being vulnerable and fragile and a little
this little this this life is fragile and precious
it's wonderful
and vulnerable and part of its wonderfulness is at it's vulnerable
it's not a in volume is not an invulnerable situation
it's a vulnerable life that's the one i want to open to because that's the one i think i've got

and also the little buddhist sangha
are the big buddhist sangha
there's a comment on that which is that
what we're really doing here
is not christianity
or islam or judaism or hinduism or buddhism
we're trying to do something which is free of buddhism
in our buddhism small
all the better to be free of it
buddhism base
buddhism is about being free of big buddhism and little buddhism
it's about being free a big christianity and little christianity
it's about being free of
it's about the freedom of all religions from all religions that's what the buddha dharma is a about
but people you know of scared of being small so without training people are naturally scared of being small and scared of being in the minority and that's understandable and
they teach to deny that were afraid when we're in a minority
it teaches to be compassionate to the fear
and to confess it and to study it for the sake of becoming free of the fear
a be in a vulnerable minority
and then help other people
cause everybody on in in no matter how for group there and when it comes down to serve to themselves they're a minority
and vulnerable too many things and one of things are vulnerable to his fear but fear
can be engaged was in a way to liberate us from it and we can also become liberated from vulnerability without taking away the vulnerability
the vulnerable people can be free
and i guess i would say the only kind of people that can be free or vulnerable people because there aren't any other types
fragile people can be free
the buddhists are fragile and vulnerable they're totally vulnerable they're vulnerable to everybody and their completely free
but we have to train to realize that
in this house we sometimes call the training zen meditation
but we also sometimes called the training bodhisattva precepts
and in relationship to zen meditation we have bodhisattva vows
and in relationship to bodhisattva precepts we have bodhisattva vows
for example a bodhisattva about i wish
to become free of all fear so they're all beings can be liberated from all fear
and i wish to practice and meditation as the path to liberate all bags from fear
i wish to practice the bodhisattva precepts
i vow i wish to practice the bodhisattva precepts i vowed to practice the bodhisattva precepts in order
the all beings would be free of fear
and at peace
in their vulnerability
someone said to me recently
could you give me some instruction in the body sought the precepts
and i said i'd be happy to
and then i thought
there's a book called being upright
and on the cover of the book it says zen meditation and the bodhisattva precepts
i saw a copy of that book in the interview room and few minutes ago
took it off the shelf and put it on the lectern it's gonna bring it here and show it to you
but then i've got wanted to bring the book then to bring a lectern
some italian there's a book i says zen meditation
and the bodhisattva precepts
but when i told this person about that that the subtitle i said you know maybe i should say zen meditation as bodhisattva precepts
the and that is a little bit of a problem it's not like a zen meditation that it didn't the hand the got precepts that a dinner
it's zen meditation
here's the bodhisattva precepts
and boys had the precepts
zen meditation
that's a basic instruction
that i would offer about zen meditation
in the in the interview a there's a nice candlelight ground
hard plastic envelope that's kind of red and gray i think
would you bring guts and stuff inside
so i'm

zen meditation is also
zen meditation is also
freedom from fear
the meditation is
complete perfect enlightenment
complete perfect enlightenment is the bodhisattva precepts
zen meditation is the treasury of true dharma eyes it's the inconceivable mind of nirvana
the bodhisattva precepts
our also
the treasury to dharma eyes the inconceivable mind of near van the inconceivable mind of nirvana says
it says when it talks and it does talk it says going for refuge and enlightenment going for refuge in reality going for refuge in the saga
it says not killing
not stealing
not misusing sexuality
not why
that's a fearlessness says
shop not tickets cardboard
now was soon maybe maybe it anyways it's it's horizontal and it's on top of some books
it's about you know it's big enough is but big big enough to have saved me half and by eleven pieces of paper in it
it has
ah pieces of paper inside on which are printed in english
the sixteen great bodhisattva precepts so i thought i would show them to you some of you maybe don't know that but no are familiar with them
zen meditation is
embracing and sustaining forms and ceremonies
zen meditation is
embracing and sustaining all wholesome activities zen meditation is embracing of sustaining all living beings
buddha is embracing and sustaining forms and ceremonies
buddha is embracing is a standing all wholesome activities
buddha is embracing and sustaining all beings
that's what zen meditation is the meditation is embracing me standing grievances


here was young didn't even have been me and
the hard part
didn't have a train
the paper
within the get inside is
the lotus sutra ah the number
and here are copies of them reviews sixteen bodhisattva precepts
of soto zen school in
descent from dogs and if any of you like to look at this
if you already know the maybe can not not taken
he said down

one understanding of
ah the bodhisattva precepts
might be that there's bodhisattva precepts and then there's concentration practice and then there's wisdom brackets sometimes the the practice of buddhism is presented as having a
ethical precepts
ah concentration preserves wisdom precepts
but the
in this particular school than the boys helped the precepts
are not one of the three they're all three together in up
inseparable practice
zen meditation practice and ethics practicing
concentration in practicing wisdom
bodhisattva precepts his practice and ethics practice in concentration artisan wisdom
and it is it uses forms and ceremonies
it makes
the forms
of our life
into ceremonies
into enactments
complete perfect enlightenment
it practices wholesome exercises like generosity ethics
patience diligence concentration and wisdom
and it embraces to say sustains all beings
and in embracing and sustaining all beings
it in acts
the precepts and it in acts
the meditation because the meditation
the zen meditation
is embracing and sustaining all beings the zen meditation
is the embracing as sustaining of all beings is an meditation is the way all of you are embracing and sustaining me
and the way i am embracing and sustaining all of you
the way my practice is the same as your practice
is the way i'm embracing and sustaining you in the way they your practice is the same as our practice
is the way you are embracing and sustain us the way you're embracing and sustaining has and the way we're embracing and sustaining you that is and meditation in the school
the way i practiced by myself
is an idea
that i can practice
the way i'm practicing buys up is is just an idea there's actually no way that i can actually purchase by myself but i can think that i can think that i can think that i'm practicing by myself
and that person is vulnerable fragile person that thinks that way
and that vulnerable plaque person who thinks he can practice by himself
and faces practices above or below average
that person is embraced and sustained by all beings
and that person who thinks he can practice by himself embraces and sustains all beings
but if he believes that he can practice by himself he might not simultaneously believe that he can embrace and sustain all beings and that they're embracing and sustaining him because if they were embracing and sustaining him he would not be practicing by himself
but they are so he's not
i'm not practicing by myself
whatever way i'm practicing is due to your support
have in the way i practice
harvard bad it is you support me
however bad my practices really
in the bodhisattva precepts you can't blame me
because you have the same practice with me
and whatever enlightenment ah i'm living in whatever enlightenment is living me is the same enlightenment that's living you
that practice
da practice which is which is the same enlightenment of you and me that's
zen meditation in this school and that is the bodhisattva precepts which of course include embracing and sustaining all beings
but not just that
embracing and sustainable wholesome activities
but then one might think well
if i can't see where are all these wholesome activities i don't see myself i don't see myself being generous right now i don't see myself being patient right now
but i do see myself being honest in saying that i don't see myself being patient i honestly feel that way so in that case i do see myself practicing the precept of being honest
but i'm not talking about the way i see myself being patient
i'm not talking about the way i see myself being generous although i do see myself has been generous or not
i'm talking about the way while i think i'm being generous
i am embracing is standing all beings
while i think i'm being generous hobbies are embracing and sustaining me or while i think i'm not a generous and say i'm sorry
re the moments that i feel sorry that i'm being stingy
there's a practice
which is not some place else
it's right here it's it's the way i'm living
as the way i'm living while i feel stingy
that i embrace and sustain our bags and all beings embrace and sustain me while i feel stitch
and by opening to the fact that i feel stingy
right completely opening to the fact that i feel stingy because it's not a fact that i am stingy
stinginess is not affect but perceiving stinginess is a fact
and the fact is that it's a perception and perceptions are not reality
there are narrow little view of reality
he's stingy i'm stingy yes
right that's the perception and i want to i wish to open completely i wish to embrace and sustain that perception
and i wish that perception to embrace and sustain me and i wish to or blue
two embracing a sustaining all perceptions all preceding beings and i wish to opened to them and i wished to open to that they are open to me and i wished to open to embracing and sustaining them and i wish to open to them and bracey sustained to me in other words i wished to open the
zen meditation
of this score is a notation of the school is the same practice
at me when i'm phil is dingy and all of you however your family
the way we're doing the same practice is the practice so maybe at this moment
thirty percent of the people are if the stingy and seventy percent are feeling generous fine
that's the current survey on that opinion
the next moment it may shift
right now twenty six percent may be frightened and
seventy three percent are fearless fine
fine we start with that fine fine meats we work with that
but that's not the end than we remember that the stingy ones in the us stingy ones are embracing sustaining each other and they have their practice practice of the same for the stingy and generous
that practice is
the buddhist practice
the buddhist practice is not the practice of the generous ones the ones who think their generous it's not the practice of the ones who think they're stingy
it's the way the generous ones in the stingy ones are
embracing him to standing each other it's the way they're practicing generosity together the way the stingy ones are practicing generosity
with the ones who are generous for practice and generals generosity is not my idea of generosity generosity is
buddha it is
the boy saw a piece of generosity is not killing is not stealing is not misusing sexuality
so the the practice which is the same practice and the same enlightenment as you and all beings of course
i know of course to me it's of course is it inconceivable i cannot not no idea have can actually
do justice to this inconceivable process of buddha enlightened
inconceivable process of the bodhisattva precepts and inconceivable
zen meditation
and games and meditation embraces and sustains forms and ceremonies it uses some particular form
to adopt
and use that for
to demonstrate
that nobody's doing it alone
to take piece of instance with year
tom and
and grasped the incense and in that form to use that phone to embrace that form to realize the practice you're doing together with everybody
to realize the enlightenment
of all beings
or to write somebody's name
could a piece of paper
to use that form
and then to do a ceremony a well being so
embrace that for to realize embracing and sustaining all beings
if we don't use to forge for that
we miss part of the practice which is the part of the practice where we
the thought
that were practicing alone
we're restrain the thought that she can do something by yourself alone without the support of all beings were you restrain
the thought that what you're doing
does not
together with everybody else
if you don't do something
if you don't act if you don't perform a form
you might not say
that thing i didn't do i did all by myself
the things we don't do we don't usually think we're doing along
the forms and ceremonies which were not practicing we don't think i did that

like my leader my little leader she says i did it i did it and i say you did it
so now i got some didn't work with
i did it
now there's certain things she doesn't do
certain forms do not happen
remember that they don't she's not involved with certain forms and ceremonies so she doesn't say i did it
but when she does he is a form than she could say i did it and now we can start down the education
a big gracious to her and realize that when she says i did it
i supported him to say that
i support her to think that she did it by herself she has to go through that
phase of thinking that she can do something by herself and that she owns her mother
and now she's even extended to my grandad
so unlike detected couple nights ago i saw he was and i said i think i should go now and she said don't go my grandad
and i said yes i am your granddaddy
but i have not yet said to her and all being support me to be your granddaddy
and me being your granddaddy supports on beta haven't told her that yeah
took her awhile to extend my mommy and she's not yours and she's not your daughter she's my mommy to hi mommy and now my granddaddy
you all support her to say that
she support you when she says it how you support her and how she supports you
but that is zen meditation
and when i tell her
that what she's doing is the same practice in the same as like minutes all between when i tell her she'll probably say like a brother that's totally incomprehensible
does he say who want to see actually say i said her brother said one time for a couple of years ago before it's just before she was born i brought her brother a new bicycle
and i gave it to a products in my car from san francisco to santa barbara and gave him the bicycle and after his riding for watson
so the seasonal sisters is in his mother's
whew now
i said
katia do like audi field but you know basically said
my sister's not gonna ride it
brother john
my sister's not gonna ride it
and i said
by the time she can ride it you'll be in college
clap and then he said i still want wired to right
and i said to him
but you will be a totally different person than you are now and he says that's totally incomprehensible
so what i'm saying to you you could save totally incomprehensible and
i hear you
if that woman asked for some instruction and bodhisattva precepts i said this
so it's not really about ah
doing good and not doing evil
we say do good and dr evil but that's not about doing good at doing not doing evil
it's about
the way we're supporting each other
right now
he is not doing evil and it is doing good
but does not me doing good and may not doing evil it's the way you're supporting me right now that's the not doing evil
and doing a good and from you supporting me and from me supporting you and from you support each other
comes the teaching
don't do evil to good comes the precept
comes the precept
not killing
from supporting each other from the land of supporting each other
don't take what's not given
oh when i say and out this i think of my childhood in minnesota
when i heard the had perhaps beer
which goes
from the land of sky blue volunteers is more hotter common the from the land of pines lofty balsam comes that beer refreshing hands
am from the land of sky blue whale hunters from the land of supporting each other and being supported by a journey from the land of embracing into standing all beings comes the book at time
come the dharma which is not killing
not stealing
not misusing sexuality
not lie
not intoxicating from
the actual practice of the bodhisattva precepts comes these words
comes these words
and then someone says could you give some instruction okay
these words are referring to
which these words don't reach
going for refuge and buddha our words
about buddha
their words about going for refuge in embracing and sustaining all bags
so when we practice of meditation the precepts tell us
the sitting were doing the city we have been doing the city we will be doing the sitting we're doing right now
the form of sitting we're doing right now
that form which everybody support you to do right now
it resonates through your whole passed in your whole future
to embrace and sustain all beings
the sitting were doing
right now is embracing and sustaining all beings are right now
and it's also embracing a sustaining bays
before right now
and after
there's no end to this practice
and not begin
and we get to celebrate that right now
this is a meditation this is the voice of the percent
hi this is it seems to be a very optimistic
wonderful wonderfully happy version of reality
there were being told that in reality
we are embracing and sustaining all beings and they're embracing his his genius
our job is to right now in this form
listen to that and open to that
but it's hard
when we think i'm stingy for she is stingy
or i'm feeling irritated
but if somebody whispers gently in my ear
do you remember that all beings are supporting you feeling irritated
and that you're being here can be irritated right now
is the same practices are beings
i might say yes
and it didn't do anything to the irritation
it didn't get rid of the irritation
the irritation wasn't jiggled moved at all
and yet
i'm satisfied with being irritated person
i'm satisfied totally satisfy and fearless the irritated with me
if you are
and if you want to stop being irritated with me
i'm ready for that
if not you want to start
i'm ready for that
this is a bodhisattva precepts
from the land of sky more heart

how some mentioned reason with it in this had they had his picture like m
no a lake with sky-blue sparkling waters and i just don't not just one round lake but a lake that had bays so the here's a is kind of a bay with pine trees around the edge and and you can see it narrows and then there's another bay
and then narrows you see another base and see these bays going off
the clear wasn't just like looking out on like it on the pacific it's like looking on the pacific and then the pacific kind of like come comes together and then opens up again or out into the horizon that's what the ad look like and then when i was about twelve years old somebody took me on a fishing trip to northern minnesota
and they act it actually doesn't look like that
these legs at go on like from you here
to to the horizon you know lake after like after night after night after night after night and they're all sky blue waters and his hands beer squirting on

it's not this way
now that you're not to listen to me anymore
i will listen to you
the instruction is pointed towards the noise
what's the relationship between beard and karma
what's the relationship between fear and karma
my car
beer and our little too
a joint ownership to beer i'm okay with it
it's peers your you have done a fair rate in the next course is about the relationship to beer and
the relationship is with fair a coma

one story the relationship between fair gonna get the actual
the teaching of the actuality of the relationship is that all beatings support you in your karmic function
and all being support and her comic function sometimes includes fear that's the actuality of the relationship is then the way are supported and the way you support our beings is that in your karmic consciousness fear sometimes appears
now a survey has been conducted and the results are that in almost all comic consciousnesses there is fear
so you can also said the relationship between fear and karma this karma only occurs in karmic consciousness
karma only occurs and karmic consciousness the results of karma however do not appear only in kind of consciousness
but the car mid-south the actual activity
of karma is the activity of consciousness and in consciousness there is often feel
in com and also in consciousness there is
almost always dodgers they always make life simpler for you
i sense that somebody's there
and in karmic consciousness where karma occurs there's a sense that that somebody
is aware of a world
but the world doesn't look like that somebody in that world doesn't look like a consciousness it looks like a world that's not consciousness so karma consciousness is usually until until it's illuminated it's deceptive
and even after it's illuminated the illumination
illuminates the perceptiveness
so in another illuminated karmic consciousness there is the appearance of somebody there and looks like that somebody does certain things and not other things and it looks like as a world in the world doesn't in karmic consciousness it looks like the world's not consciousness but it
his consciousness and when the world appears to be not consciousness
and there's somebody there that somebody is aware of fear as long as the world looks like not consciousness
and you believe it here a little bit afraid
however at the same time all beings are supporting you
to have this life is karmic life with its fear and you being that way support all beings even been so do not have consciousness are supported by you conscious beings
and even beings who will not have consciousness are supporting you
and rounds of your life of your actually cognitive life
some realms of your cognitive life you share with other conscious beings
and that realm of cognitive life support you
that realm of cognitive life which is not conscious support your conscious life for their sphere
and also some parts of your cognitive life which are not shared also support
you're conscious life
so are being supported we were where we live as as selves
where we live as somebody we hear that realm is surrounded by a vast cognitive field which supports this conscious room where their sphere and beer
so those read those vast cognitive realms are supporting our conscious life and are conscious life
produces these fast unconscious cognitive rounds and part of this vast unconscious content round are shared and some are not with other beings
conscious rounds were they to have this deceptive consciousness
but the good news is that
the buddha dharma
touches conscious beings and conscious beings respond to it by making images of what the buddha dharma has
ah of what the british army is and by working together we can work out these images in such a way that way can practice with consciousness of such a way that we can become free of it right while has happened without changing at all
that way of working with it does change it
but at the very moment of working with it we work with it as it is
when further questions on that point
yes duke
i'm a few weeks ago
and on student suzuki roshi is told me and people that he was mentioning
his disciples
suzuki roshi mentioned his disciples and talk and talk or something like that that he's getting sicker if she was talking to my disciples blah blah i don't know what it was and afterwards you went up and asked him who are your disciples
what you said was that his response was that people who practice for the benefit of themselves there are people of practice for the benefit themselves people who practice for the benefit of others and the people who practice for the benefit of others or his disciples right cetera yes
how does that fit into where you've been talking about how matter what we're doing we are supporting and sustaining all beings
who are ccp vs disciples is it everyone well for example
this example cake
he didn't say
that i didn't say who are your students he didn't say students he said the snipers
ha and see if sometimes he did have students that were practicing for themselves and he cared
sometimes it looked like he was
what look like you kind of like with as kind ever as everybody as he was to everybody i didn't see him being less kind to the people who are there maybe even public is saying i'm here and i must confess i'm here on the to practice for myself
but disciple i think he meant disciple like the people who are
transmitting the teaching are showing that the practice
but i think he would also i'm know what do i would i would think he might also see that the people who are practicing at tassajara or
he were a zen center for their own benefit
that they are supporting all beings and all be support them to be that way
just like i said i support my little leader to say i did it
my mommy i don't argue with her
she seems to be primarily concerned with her own welfare
seems to be an excellent example of somebody who's focused on her own welfare and she gives confused about what it would be but that's your focus it looks like
but i totally feel like she's supporting me and i'm supporting her and she supported her parents and their supporting her and many people are supporting her and embracing and sustaining her she harvard doesn't get them
looks like looks like she's sometimes feel like what you have in mind is not supporting me
example turning the tv off is not supportive
having dinner now is not my idea of people bracing and sustaining me
i her mother what her mother had a painter backside massaging her mother she said no give me a massage
and your mother it after me you can have a massage
soft your mother was finished you should thank you and then i gave her a massage and that her mother says didn't dinnertime
in which he heard the gym times you and me
the massage went on dinnertime
massage my mom and find it up
i'll massage you while i carried to the table
after we got the terrorists and she wanted me to continue to massage your washing was eating
and that in that she got that look just right to her this
identical ship so how and then that's not as she wants and he saw so but in fact the teaching is she is embracing of sustaining everybody all the time and everybody's embracing sustain her old time
there's no way for to get out of
that's the reality but that realities inconceivable we can't see how were supporting each other
in common consciousness where their sphere in the realm of their sphere is common consciousness there it looks like things a certain way and everything has a sign which says this is true
this is know it's like it looks so real how could it not be
so that we can like
think or that really would be fun to do that and then be corrals ourselves and go do it in certain reasons for now
in common conscience it does not look like everybody supporting you every moment
and and it doesn't look like you're supporting everybody
that's a teacher
and also went to another part of that story by suzuki roshi is when i asked him who his disciples were he referred to as karmic consciousness
and he told me about his kind of consciousness and he said i can't i i don't like it that much of my comic consciousness does this but it does when you say who are your disciples then when that when you say that my karmic conscious scotia and next a picture of disciples and nine disciples and he doesn't like it but it does the
zen master admit i have become a consciousness which discriminates between the cycles and non disciples it discriminates between those who are at a stage of life where they think they're practicing for themselves
and another people aren't a stage of life for this and appear to practice for others he doesn't like that as mine does that but it does and then he says my disciples are those those guys
but i think he also knows that's just him being willing to talk to me in terms of
that question and him giving me an answer in terms of that question
but not everybody's good his disciple even though buddhist supporting everybody and everybody supporting buddha not everybody has listened to the garmin listen to the dharma listened to the diamond listen to the dharma enough
so that they are practicing with their cosmic consciousness in a way that they understand it's an illusion
without trying to get rid of the illusion not everybody has listened to teaching enough so that the comic conscious of parish in such a way
the things that are real have a little dimas time next to them were says
hmm not really this is an illusion this is a picture of reality
and is possible to train yourself so that all the realities that appear in consciousness in a sense have another sign next to them which say
idea only he hadn't happened
a drink and
and no killing no stealing nala everything has the bodhisattva precepts are written on them
and everything says this thing supports all beings and all being support this thing
so the comic coaches get gets changed without changing anything
everything's just the same and yet the dharmas the light of dharma shiny and inconceivable light is shining on everything so it's illuminated without messing with anything because we don't wanna mess with things because everything is supporting everything
when to liberate everything
we don't want to deny anything her from anything really
they want to liberate
but really
we want to realize that everything liberated
because the way things really are
it's liberation reality is liberation
and liberation of the way things actually are functioning but it's inconceivable
so we have plenty conceivable stuff so how do we are related to conceivable stuff so we can open to their inconceivable
where whether they
by applying a teaching style the conceivable stuff by taking the conceivable teachings and putting them all the considerable stuff
in this way after a while
what's the difference between concealed
the difference between conceivable and inconceivable is an idea
many follow your response to rack and the part that to carry he understands that there were some things are not shared years
consciousness or something or not sharing
i didn't say com consciousness as not sure i didn't know what does not seem like cognitive processes some cognitive processes are not shared and some cognitive processes are shared
but these two cognitive processes i'm talking about are not conscious so part of our cognitive life partner var
mine life is consciousness
and so the not shared any between people are like for example the way the way this body figures out how to make these hand gestures i cannot consciously for the figure out how that happens i cannot consciously do this the way glenn gould plays the piano glenn gould can not consciously figure out why
gay shared within the organism that
yeah and he doesn't in the way he plays the piano which is not consciously operating the piano playing it it's an unconscious cognitive process that is not shared by people were watching
even if there is good at playing piano team they're not sharing the support of hit of his consciousness
because think anything supporting everything he's such as well he said he supported by all beings to have a certain cognitive processes which no-one shares
you are supported to have private unconscious cognitive activity you're also supported by me and are all your friends and enemies
to have private conscious activity
but there's a also a cognitive process that you're supported to participate in and everybody's participating in that shared and we call that part the physical world
the physical world as it appears
and actually supports our conscious version of it is also cognition
and someone phrase the collective unconscious with that
the collective unconscious is very similar to what i'm calling the common cognitive process
and if the physical world the supports our conscious lives and in that physical world there's not really the parents of separate physical bodies
the difference between
different physical bodies is only idea
different physical bodies are totally supporting embracing and sustaining each other
but that's a cognitive process
