    You are the Universe

    Soto Zen teacher Brad Warner talks for about 12 minutes.





    Any comments about what he said in the video?

    An interesting talk. He is dealing with the aftermath of insight experiences, even enlightenment experiences, where you no longer feel separate from the universe and the totality of universes and time are accessed. A lot of Zen writings of this sort were written before our current understanding of space and time, so are somewhat hard to come to terms with, but are still worth a read. I think his main point is how such experiences impinge on our everyday lives afterwards. How do we relate to the universe and time as we have experienced it in this way when we are spreading marmite?
