I do not feel like I have won much. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Yet, you have won everything by letting go...


I think Zen aphorisms make more sense if you alter consciousness with, for example, a shot of whiskey in your coffee. YMMV.

I draw a probably wrong distinction between aphorisms and affirmations. I tried searching for aphorisms, mis-spelled it, and got...

https://sproutingzen.com/life-changing-affirmation s-for-success/

Which I initially misread as "spouting Zen", a parody. Not sure how wrong that was. I'm not against positive thinking, but golly gee People Like Me makes my mind remember Al Franken on SNL.

Here's some "better" Zen. https://wisdomquotes.com/zen-quotes/ At least some of it is old oriental instead of New Self Absorbed. ( and I'm internally giggling that there are quick links to tweet these... instant self gratification & virtue signalling! What a world! )

Since my slant is from the martial arts side of the philosophy, I think Zen Aphorisms are deliberately vague to both make you think, and spare the teacher the bother of explaining the obvious to fools.


And... back to the memes.
