At one point while sitting today I had an unusual feeling that my sense of self was just barley hanging on and that if I could just let go a bit more it would fall away. It was just a feeling, my sense of self held firm , was a good sit though.
Vow #3: stop making vows you know you ain't gonna keep
Besides the deaf are the ones perhaps in the most need of music. Don't stop. Give up but dont stop.
Thanks Dan, Cao, Friends.
I already forgot about it, it wasn't a vow as I read it now, merely thinking, the error of thinking there's a presence (present) of mind (and hence time/space) instead of a function, thus a self-referential moment which entered this forum. Such "vows" are pretty useless since they dont come from the heart but from thoughts, and all thoughts about doing and not doing whether its about money or music are from the past (attachments), eventhough there's no such thing. There's no such thing as braking or keeping vows, apart from the thought of it, true vows are "timeless" as it is timeless there cannot be any thought about vows arising.
Thanks for allowing the observation, you guys rock
