Let your unconscious think/ 無意識で考える

The head is conscious while the abdomen is unconscious. When the master tells his disciples to “think” with the lower part of the body, he means that the koan is to be taken down to the unconscious… The koan is to “sink” into the whole being and not stop at the periphery… we see that the koan is no more in the field of intellection.

“Zen Buddhism And Psychoanalysis” Erich Fromm, D.T. Suzuki

頭は意識、腹は洗剤意識である。師が弟子に腹で考えろと教える時、公案を無意識の領域に持っていけと説いているのだ。公案は存在全体に沈み込むものであり、表層をなぞるだけでは終わらない。知性の領域を飛び出るものだということが分かる。
