Re: Void in the Head

Hi Joe, grazie, yes pretty much flown just enjoying a tail of it. I know what you mean yet if such words are taking literally there is the danger of (dualistic) interpretation, for clearly the voidness that is the absance of appearance is no other then whatever appears, since there is no agent or ow...

Re: The Weight of Pottery...

Joe, This reminds me of a little joke from my 'root teacher' We are usually much too busy to recognize it, but prior to our engaging adventures in consciousness – that ever-changing theater of desire, knowledge, and experience — there is only awareness, the same state in which we now exist. Somehow,...

Re: Heaven and Hell

Let's assume there is a "physical" hell (like in the human books) once in that hell, what book will there be in hell to speak of a hell beyond, I mean their/"that" hell will be like our "earth" it can always get worse right? since once found in "hell" hell ain't a bad designated place, once you're t...

Re: Music

Watched the movie Bohemian Rhapsody yesterday (Larry did you see it already, if so what did you think) this is my all time fav queen song, the movie was an excellent portrayer of the song showing how love is not (or much more) then "meeting and seperation" or "birth and death" that is what the song ...

Ah "too bad" it's a fb group and not an 'old styled' forum, since fb doesn't allow any personal coding on groups it's navigation is horrible (to me) Best wishes on/to the group though.

Re: Void in the Head

Once a Vinaya Master named Fa-Ming asked: "Do most Ch'an Masters fall into the void?" The Master replied: "It is only you who fall into the void!" Fa-Ming, shocked, asked: "Why do you say I am the one who falls into the void?" The Master replied: "The Sutras and the Sastras are merely words, written...

Re: What to do about controversial teachers

What are your thoughts on this? In general (since I have not read any particular topic recently here) people want/need to speak about this because it's simply manifested energy, there's a difference between pure gossip and being 'interested' in such topics due to unspent energies or emotional churn...
