Experience leaves only memories behind and adds to the burden which is heavy enough. You need no more experiences. The past ones are sufficient. And if you feel you need more, look into the hearts of people around you. You will find a variety of experiences which you would not be able to go through in a thousand years. Learn from the sorrows of others and save yourself your own. It is not experience that you need, but the freedom from all experience. Don’t be greedy for experience; you need none.
~Sri Niz

“The moments of satisfaction you experience are not in a subject/‌object relationship where you can say “I am free, I am happy.” These moments without thought, dream or representation are our true nature, fullness, which cannot be projected. It is an experience encountered where there is neither somebody experiencing nor a thing experienced. Only this reality is spiritual.

All other states, “highs,” whether brought about by techniques, experiences or drugs, even the so often exalted samadhi, are phenomena‌—‌and carry with them traces of objectivity. In other words, as what you are is not a state, it is a waste of time and energy chasing more and more experiences in the hope of coming closer to the non-experience.”
― Jean Klein, I Am

At present we perceive samsara as something we have to reject and nirvana as something we have to attain. Now while this is correct according to relative truth, according to absolute truth the nature of the afflictive emotions and actions that we are supposed to reject is nothing other than emptiness. When we realize the dharmakaya, which is free from true existence, we will know that all perceptions are similar to a dream or an illusion and we will no longer crave these phenomena. As it is said, 'While there is attachment, there is no view.' And the absence of attachment is the supreme view.
~Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

A sleepy-eyed grandma
Encounters herself in an old mirror.
Clearly she sees a face,
But it doesn't resemble her at all.
Too bad, with a muddled head,
She tries to recognize her reflection!

Not my photo, in that I did not expose (photograph) it. Nonetheless, I'd like to share.

Interested readers could use this bookplate image to print onto gummed paper and paste into their own books. Or, employ variations thereof (or not of).

Mom visit today, as she was reading bits and pieces from her birthday book (margaret atwood) it suddenly dawned on me how nice it is that someone reads out loud, as I purchased a fair amount of books but hardly ever read any of them (just not a reader here) I took the silly Atwood book out of her hands and provided her with a sri niz book. This is great she can practise her English and I can hear my purchased books come alive, you suddenly wonder when did we stop reading books to each other, like the bedtime stories we hear as kids. So it seems me and mom have a new tradition when we visit, perhaps more people should try this, instead of the human (self-narrative) habit talking why don't we pick up a book from the shelf and just start reading out loud. Anyhow it seems moms can be very functional if you just give them some direction 🙃 (kidding)

She read a few pages from the chapter "mind - indicator, not dictator" (december 19 1979) I'll be happy to read her some atwood or whatever (sing a song etc) from her library when I visit her.

Good for you! That Atwood stuff is pure crap.

Margaret Atwood
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Margaret Eleanor Atwood CC OOnt CH FRSC (born November 18, 1939) is a Canadian poet, novelist, literary critic, essayist, inventor, teacher, and environmental activist. Since 1961, she has published 17 books of poetry, 16 novels, 10 books of non-fiction, eight collections of short fiction, eight children's books, and one graphic novel, as well as a number of small press editions in poetry and fiction. Atwood has won numerous awards and honors for her writing, including the Man Booker Prize, Arthur C. Clarke Award, Governor General's Award, Franz Kafka Prize, and the National Book Critics and PEN Center USA Lifetime Achievement Awards.

Atwood is also the inventor and developer of the LongPen and associated technologies that facilitate remote robotic writing of documents. A number of her works have been adapted for film and television, increasing her exposure.

Atwood's works encompass a variety of themes including gender and identity, religion and myth, the power of language, climate change, and "power politics".[3] Many of her poems are inspired by myths and fairy tales which interested her from a very early age.[4] Atwood is a founder of the Griffin Poetry Prize and Writers' Trust of Canada. She is also a Senior Fellow of Massey College, Toronto.

> Quotable Quote
Margaret Atwood
“There's an epigram tacked to my office bulletin board, pinched from a magazine -- "Wanting to meet an author because you like his work is like wanting to meet a duck because you like pâté.”


Morning in the Burned House
Margaret Atwood - 1939-

In the burned house I am eating breakfast.
You understand: there is no house, there is no breakfast,
yet here I am.

The spoon which was melted scrapes against
the bowl which was melted also.
No one else is around.

Where have they gone to, brother and sister,
mother and father? Off along the shore,
perhaps. Their clothes are still on the hangers,

their dishes piled beside the sink,
which is beside the woodstove
with its grate and sooty kettle,

every detail clear,
tin cup and rippled mirror.
The day is bright and songless,

the lake is blue, the forest watchful.
In the east a bank of cloud
rises up silently like dark bread.

I can see the swirls in the oilcloth,
I can see the flaws in the glass,
those flares where the sun hits them.

I can't see my own arms and legs
or know if this is a trap or blessing,
finding myself back here, where everything

in this house has long been over,
kettle and mirror, spoon and bowl,
including my own body,

including the body I had then,
including the body I have now
as I sit at this morning table, alone and happy,

bare child's feet on the scorched floorboards
(I can almost see)
in my burning clothes, the thin green shorts

and grubby yellow T-shirt
holding my cindery, non-existent,
radiant flesh. Incandescent.

:lol:

I'm well aware of her oeuvre and the docs I've seen about her and bits and pieces from the handmaids tale series, she seems like a metaphorical genius to me, I'm just not a reader of "non-spiritual" books, silly here is just a playful way of communicating a message between two ppl (cats included), (it just indicates it's time for something else, i.e. put down that silly .... it's time for diner little rabbit etc...) crap wouldn't be a healthy way of communicating.

I also bought my mother two books from Atwood for her birthdays. She liked Handmaid's Tale ( it was popular at that time, because of the series I think) and next year I bought her Oryx and Crake.
But I have not read any of those books or any Atwood's books since I rarely read novels. :)

Awakening happens suddenly, like when you turn on a light bulb in the darkness. The darkness immediately disappears. When you turn on your own light, maya, ignorance, disappears. You are home. It happens when you don't want it to happen.As long as you want it to happen there is a somebody who wants it to happen. That somebody has to disappear. The person that wants it to happen is keeping you back. That is the personal I. Silence is the best way to wake up

Many fear that with the destruction of the mind, they themselves will cease to exist. But manonasa [destruction of the mind] is nothing to be feared. What we conceive of now as mind is only a combination of rajas [restlessness] and tamas [dullness]. By their elimination, the mind becomes pure. Such a mind is one's own swarupa [real nature]. The activities of one whose mind has been purified by Self-attention will continue to be done. He will even appear to do the work with greater attention and involvement. Yet he is unaffected and always stays in the felicity of non-dual bliss.
