Re: Response to: It Had to be Felt #4: Arikawa Sadateru: "Please, put your hand Down!
It would seem to me that 'experienced' and 'inexperience' are relative terms !!
It is also interesting that these differing opinions remind us that 'experience' itself is driven as much by our perceptions as it is by anything else.
Please excuse my digression but it reminds me of the Zen koan:
Two monks were watching a flag flapping in the wind. One said to the other, “The flag is moving.”
The other replied, “The wind is moving.”
Huineng overheard this. He said, “Not the flag, not the wind; mind is moving.”
