Pedagogue (The Door Of The Law part 4)


Dai Bosatsu Zendo Kongo-Ji Meditation Hall » by Michael Dougan)


After Simon tells his roshi the story of the man who waited at the door of the Law, the student begs his master to explain the dark parable. The teacher replies that he will explain it, if Simon follows him into the zendo.

The fourth part of « The Door Of The Law » is entitled « Pedagogue » and tells the story of the roshi's response to his student's plea.

Now I see
Dear Simon why you looked so weary

Don't worry
I will explain the allegory
And from its bind you will be free

Come with me
I know just the thing needed for thee
Follow me

The meditation hall holds the key
But the answer is one you must see


·
« The Door Of The Law » is a suite in six chapters inspired by « A Parable About A Parable » from RAWilson's « Quantum Psychology, » itself inspired by Kafka's « Before The Law. » (There is also a video adaptation by jackhalfaprayer.)

"Now, there are those who say 'parasite' proper must live inside the host, without killing the host. But still some people, me included, do not see two connected objects as two different objects at all. Thus 'parasite-host' dichotomy is also mistaken…"
