I know that even if one sees the truth of one's nature that one does not retreat into another world apart from the world one lives in nowGreat Sage EofH wrote: ↑Thu Mar 07, 2019 5:17 pmWell, that's why i preferred not to go into the piles of words, it leaves the wrong impression. Truth is right in front of us. ... Impermanence. Everything else, no-self, suffering, the end of suffering, all follow accordingly. Simple, but it's not what the whole world believes.
There should not be a separation but a unification
The world may be an illusion with impermanence, no-self, suffering and all that follows accordingly
But, one does not eat meat and say that no animal was harmed. I believe Buddha gave up eating meat.
Why do that if it is only an illusion?
Yes, simple but not what the whole world believes.
That seems to be okay for now.
There will come a day when it will change, impermanence
What is important?
That we continue our practice
And the lineage of the Buddha continues
His beliefs and practices
And in this way the world will change.
Practice leads to varying degrees of the mind opening
And along the way there are traps, such as bliss, power, etc
Personally, it is about the journey to find one's nature
