Re: "I used to think X, but now I think Y... "

I used to think there was a thinker behind thoughts, a believer behind beliefs. So I constantly altered between believing and non-believing so called thinking and non-thinking based on second hand knowledge from that sperm-consciousness, or birth-chemical, the child of ignorance, the root of the man...

#MeTooGuru - Support the Dalai Lama's effort to remedy sexual abuse

Please sign this petition of survivors of Buddhist sex offenders to get a chance to meet with the Dalai Lama in the Netherlands (september 14-17th) today on Dutch news it was announced that they weren't sure they could fit it into the program, which would be (religiously) ironic if it didn't happen,...

Re: Words of Wisdom

"I struggled, fasted, sought for what was already present, perfect and everlasting within me. Like most of us in the body life I was in illusion; lost in glamour. I looked for the Spirit to reveal itself to me, when all that was necessary was 'relaxation unto God'. The Spirit was always with me, vei...

hi again, Michael, Well, there are some four Atlantic hurricanes in the chute right now, and two in the Pacific. But these are north of the Equator, Michael, and not likely to reach your shores.

Re: Question on Jukai (Sewing pre-Soto Precepts)

Thank you all for the additional responses, they are appreciated. I'll be very honest again. I like the Soto group I'm attending, but I'm seeing a dynamic here that I saw in a prior non-Soto group (that is a turnoff to me) The group founder who becomes focused more on being a leader, with followers...

Re: Question on Jukai (Sewing pre-Soto Precepts)

If I may add something that may be controversial, though I don't intend to be offensive, I am personally finding the sewing practice a touch ridiculous. It's great for those who love to sew and craft, or find it meditative, but it isn't the only way to do this, and it's a massive time commitment (a...

Re: Importance of lineage/ what is transmitted / etc etc

I can't agree with the spirit of this. It may be technically correct, but this advice can't sit next to the basic common sense advice that it is by and large an excellent suggestion to practice with a teacher and sangha, without the whole of the picture ending up looking distorted and dissonant.

We'd like to hear from you again in one piece , in your temperate or abstinent condition ! , but, "Cheers", anyhow. Partying? Ah no...
