After the exchange with Nikolai some story started to build about
"having" first path, which reminds me a bit of the zeal jolt I got
after about a month of starting daily practice, probably after A&P. I
guess it's time to move on and deconceptualize this. Practice has
been slacking these past couple of days.
I understand now a bit the reluctance to talk about attainments in Zen
tradition. Any conceptualization is not realization, that is very
very clear now, and there is both a strong pull towards
conceptualization and talking about this, but at the same time a
feeling that restraint is in order, and the real thing (the practice)
is more important than the abstraction of it.
