See? I'm a serious person after all (after WHAT?).
I only care what about we are "together" Joe.
Though it may express through various 'individual' forms and behaviour and produce something good.
Oops, there's that "together", or that "love" thing, again. Let's see, where did we leave those hefty boxing gloves?

All seriousness aside... I mean all kidding... good post. Sharing here and elsewhere is partial proof of the pudding that there is only ONE being, if that many.

Lots of Facets, One Gem.

Well, so I say, and so I see it.

So, let's see: are YOU the Solipsist responsible for all this??! ;)

:lol:

When the discriminating mind doesn't come into being, there is no "One" to assert or deny too.
Words are play (causes and conditions) that's all, and I use them freely, but you 'know' that already.

First time I heared the term Solipsist outside of dharmawheel, at least you're funny about it ;)

I take responsibilty for everything, besides what image anyone may form and label as this or that, that is solely YOURS.

My 'love' is never personal, that b(l)inds. It is the end of all being, of "me and you" love itself.

There are people who think the universe is one being with many "arms" (individuals). As the arms flicker, so do beings fall off the body like raindrops.

There are people who think the universe is one machine with many information processors (computers). As the information is too infinite for any finite processing, so do keys fall off the keyboard like Christmas ornaments shattering.

There are people who do not think. As they swim in the abyss, so does the abyss swallow them totally.

There are wise people who think and consider appropriately: "This is stress, this is the cause of stress, this is the cessation of stress, this is the practice for the cessation of stress." Those who think and consider in this way, the cause of death (birth) falls off the sky like a snowflake.

Haha yes people think all kinds of things according to causes and conditions, ironically like their thinking is somehow not a part or seperate "from the universe" imagining a thinker who is capable of thinking or not thinking :lol:

ps though, any type of "wrong" thinking or erroneous conception can functional correctly, for the time being.
Only one Buddhist forums and facebook pages most stuff is about telling how others are wrong, a univeral phenomena.

I love irony.

When I want to be awed somewhat, or stop a suddenly too-busy "mind", when I can remember it, I remember a line from an ancient Chinese Ch'an g'ung-an:

"A single snowflake falling in a vast valley".

It kind of gets me right between the eyes.

(a feeling at the bridge of the nose, like air escaping)
