And in the presence of head mod, I'm not going to make any jokes about only managing a semi :lol:
I know explaining jokes isn't the fun part, but I have no reference in the data bank at all to understand this "semi" you're talking about.
I have a feeling it's sexual though :lol:
I am just as clueless. If it is indeed sexual, Larry must move in more deviant circles than you or me. Probably not hard :lol:

I think it's just the rich and playful British language, they have like a 100 ways to describe any situation.
The metaphors I picked up by watching Blackadder or Upstart Crow is amazing, if I translate them to Dutch ppl think I've been to some university or something :lol:

Do you find everything you don't understand to be weird? :P
No, just when it's unusual I guess.
:lol:

Made possible by the ministry of silly walks

ps bodhi, before we go astray again on another topic, my point in the mischaracterization thread was simply that the discussion was between meido and jundo and whoever joins in on topic ofcourse, though I feel you mentioning Jundo's "overplaying the concept of practise-enlightenment" was unneccesary and not adressing the content at all. I feel Jundo "deserves" (in lack of a better word) our respect, ofcourse disagreeing is no problem but somehow you found a way to question Jundo's teaching abilities and even his students (which was the "convenient" point I made, not Meido's encounter), at least in my perception.

ps bodhi,
I will thank you to address me by my proper title: layman boda
before we go astray again
Too late!

Yup, I did it. I joined in. :105:
I feel you mentioning Jundo's "overplaying the concept of practise is enlightenment" was unneccesary...
I cautioned against it. I didn't mention his doing it.
... and not adressing the content at all.
A key issue of the topic centers around the concept of 'practice is enlightenment' and how it can be taken too far or misunderstood. Meido's exemplar exhibits one extent.

The issue of mischaracterization was settled. Meido was cleared of all charges and released back to society.
I feel Jundo "deserves" (in lack of a better word) our respect, of course disagreeing is no problem
Mentioning this makes it look like there's a problem. Is there a problem? I hope there's not a problem. You'd tell me if there were a problem, wouldn't you?
somehow you found a way to question Jundo's teaching abilities and even his students (which was the "convenient" point I made, not Meido's encounter), at least in my perception.
Advising to not overplay the practice is enlightenment concept isn't questioning his teaching abilities or his students teaching abilities.

On a final note, a little something to indulge your habit of illusion, or is it the illusion of habit? Anyway...

Thanks for sharing, not an aquired flavour I picked up along the way, neither the music, the voice or the lyrics.

One day we'll have a real talk layman boda when nothing remains, the same state we exist in now :hatsoff:

But thanks for making me walk silly, one activity which is an aquired flavour :D

Who is always

Laughing at the word

Can make you know

Of

Love.

Larry can you prepare a candlelight diner for two? :lol:

Anyone watch the Hardcore Zen Show?

They’re pretty sucky and appear to be geared towards adolescents, and that’s why they look like high school productions, but there’s a funny part in the third one at around 12 minutes into it. It’s like a puppet show featuring goshzilla. Super cute.

I think mom did some nlp on herself in the past, something about time lines and manipulation of memory.
Last week she showed me some AA visualization meditation thing, where the alcoholic visualizes lying as a kid in a green field and two people come out of the house, then all sorts of emotional contractions regarding past issues manifested in daily behaviour came to the surface.
