I once slept on the street for a few months and worked hard every day to provide for food and shelter due to causes and conditions, I find the "comforting" life, i.e. friend/family, the familiar and the known much more challenging since ppl who know you have a preconceived idea about who "fuki" is. so I enjoyed never sticking in one place for a day and not meeting the same ppl with preconceived notions about "me"Dan74 wrote: ↑Tue Apr 17, 2018 5:32 pm
Have you tried to survive in challenging circumstances, with no social security, no web of friends, family and acquaintances, familiar places, etc? With the props gone, with the comforts gone, with daily hard work and humiliation, does your liberation from grasping hold up?
No problem these days but it was a struggle back then, these days its all the same to me, familiar or unfamiliar but its still nice to meet "strangers" instead of the known friends/family who locked me up in a mental picture
How come you ask?
ps I also enjoy meeting "muslims" more often then "buddhist" overall, yet its rare to meet a true fool who cannot be pinned down as this or that, "deluded" and "enlightened" included
