  Twenty monks and one nun, who was named Eshun, were practicing meditation with a certain Zen master. Eshun was very pretty even though her head was shaved and her dress plain. Several monks secretly fell in love with her. One of them wrote... continue...

vertical line "What is the cause, what is the reason, O Lord," questioned he, "that we find amongst mankind the short-lived and long-lived, the healthy and the diseased, the ugly and beautiful, those lacking influence and the powerful, the poor and the rich, the low-born and the high-born, and the ignorant and the wise?"

The Buddha’s reply was:

"All living beings have actions (Karma) as their own, their inheritance, their congenital cause, their kinsman, their refuge. It is Karma that differentiates beings into low and high states."

vertical line Settle for less, much less, even let go, say goodbye, decrypt and ditch out and walk the streets. You might learn something about karma and who and what it affects.

vertical line It may be when I first heard things like this:

"The way toward liberation is to train yourself to live in the present without wanting to become anything. Give up becoming this or that,live without cravings, and experience this present moment with full attention. Then you will not cringe at death or seek repeated rebirth."

That my social-consciousness was less of an issue for me.

vertical line Consciousness is ALL.

However, your conscience is your problem.

And remember, remember:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Socialist [...] Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me.

vertical line I was thinking this for a little while.
Finally I make it in order.
Something like a light on the way of life:


Reality
Ordinary People Affairs

Give up becoming this or that.


Truth
My Affairs

»Truth is what meaning I give to it «

Don’t say that only clear water mirrors the moon.Muddy water also reflects the sky.Watch, after wind has settled and the waves are calm,for a wonderful moon, as lovely as before.- Lin Chi Chung (1119)

Each night I gaze upon a pond,A Zen body sitting beside a moon.Nothing is really there and yetIt is all so clear and brightI cannot describe it.If you would know the empty mind(IF YOU WANT TO KNOW EVERYTHING)Your own mind must be as clear and bright As this full moon upon the water.- Chiao Jan (785–895)


Freedom
I Think Everyone Knows What Is Freedom

Don’t pursue externals;
Don’t dally in the interior void.When the spirit remains serene
In the unity of things
Dualism vanishes by itself;When that unity is not clear
There is loss in both directions.

- Sent-ts’an (d. 606)

Means don't look inside or outside.Search in the flow of life.


Pearl
It is our original face


Reality, truth and freedom I think both are shadows of each other.
(These are my words)

vertical line And see where Bodhidharma is? who is pointing the pearl.
See how high he is?
What I am thinking and where he is- still a mystery and
don't have an idea if I can understand him in this life time

vertical line buddha replied"

Ask the same question to Buddha
Ask the same question to Nagarjuna
Ask the same question to Bodhidharma
Ask the same question to prophet Muhammad
Ask the same question to Jesus
And may be Ask the same question to Me

Would be their answer the same or different?

vertical line Just [try to be good] as if life was taking a test without a beginning or ending score or grade. Naturally you'll begin to become interested and loving to the test and you'll actually start attaining peace everyday and being great.

vertical line Warring is to co-exist. Interdependence doesn't see sides of good or bad. It's simply a fact. And dealt with in every way.

Peace in myself,
Peace in the world

To be peaceful doesn't mean you can't make mistakes. But make peace in yourself your foundation. And come back to peace from your mistakes.

vertical line Karma is the seed growing into the oak tree in the front yard.

That which you plant is that which you will soon reap.
Practice with a teacher and grow into that oak.

vertical line What is karma in Buddhism?


What you plant is what will grow
If you plan an apple seed then an apple tree will grow

what you plant you will reap
What you have done is what you are
What you do is what you will become

No secret
Those who live by the sword will die by the sword
Make good choices and good things will happen to you

This is not the story of job
There is no omnipotent being to determine your life
You do that
