Beyond The Known - 365 Days Of Exploration - Takuin Minamoto

This book is a calender of very short meditative explorations; one per day for an entire year. Some are statements, some are questions, and others just simple movements of words. Each one can be used as a jumping off point for your own daily meditations. None of the phrases in the book are definitive. In other words, they did not arise from a center of belief, or the conclusions of self. And although some of the ‘days’ in the book will seem definitive, conclusive, or opinionated, do not accept them as true or false. The words are not important anyway. What is important is to see how you rise to fight, rise to agree, or rise to flee.

But it must always remain  free of charge , regardless of format. You may do what you like with the words you find in this book. Send them to anyone, anywhere on this beautifulplanet. Share them in any way you see fit.If you enjoy this book, please take a moment and send it off to someone else that might also enjoy the words.They are not Takuin’s words, after all. Not physical structures one can possess or hold sovereignty over. These words are available to everyone in every moment…     Acknowledgements I would like to thank the many readers of who have made this book possible. Without your intensecuriosity and endless questioning this probably would not have come to pass.I also thank Akiko, for her patience and forbearance whilst I have spent the last three years being TakuinMinamoto. And special thanks to Junko Odagawa for setting the deadline.  Life Beyond the Image      Preface  During the middle of 2009 I had a conversation with a friend regarding e-books and online publishing. Inpassing he said, “ You know Takuin, if you just took a short piece on liberation; a sentence, question, koan, or some other short item for contemplation; and wrote two per day, by the end of the year you’d have a book .” Iremember thinking at that time, Well, what the hell kind of book would that be?This one, apparently…This book is a calendar of short contemplations; one per day for an entire year. They are all very slight of word,and easy to take in at a glance. Most of the pieces were written after meditation. Some were taken from livedialogues and skype calls I’ve held. And others were taken from my replies to comments on Buteach one is designed to stand on its own, as an object of exploration.During the course of reading you might find yourself believing or not believing, agreeing or disagreeing. But how  you feel about the words is irrelevant and will only get in the way of your own explorations. It is how YOU, theSelf, come up against these words that might be important, and not necessarily the content of your likes anddislikes. You may find that, during the next 365 days, you will exhaust yourself of this search for enlightenment. If you areserious, and think deeply on each day’s contemplation, this may indeed come to pass. This might sound terribleto you - to be free from the search - but it is a beautiful first step in a life of freedom.If you are diligent, never looking away from what you are, you may begin to finally live life…  for the first time .- Takuin Minamoto,    December 2009
