(1025-1100), one of the well known Chinese Ch'an masters:
-What is the Great meaning of Budhha dharmas?

vertical line My heart walks the desert
Mirages of love and sex
I drink nothing
Shiver and sweat
High winds of lust
Stale air of lack
Burning and freezing
I drink nothing Gak!
O where are the lush waters and trees?
On alone I go...

vertical line Hello so_teh,

You've said;
Eliminate your drama
Empty your cup.

Yesterday, i've find a way to eliminate my years of depression.
No more tears.

Now, i'm ready for the second step which is emptying the cup.
from now on i will try to put into practice that which i've learned for all these years.And that is to keep my mind in reality and not in imaginary thoughts which are unreal.

This is a big step for me.

i know i will carry some time the relics of repression of the past years but let's see what we can do.

yes friend?

vertical line There's a lot of commotion going on after the thunder storm this morning out in my neighborhood. A wood chipper and chainsaws cleaning up the trees. There have been a few diseases that have been killing trees around here. Any big wind we have are knocking them down.

And the other day I took a walk down the woods and cleaned out the path full of down trees and debris due to the high winds that day.

vertical line A few days ago the wind brought a huge branch down out of a big 100 year old ash tree in my garden - it was only a few yards from the backdoor. Luckily it missed the house and demolished a chicken coop. It was severely weakened by a fungus disease and I'd tried over the years to manage the canopy to keep it going - the storm damaged it so badly though we had to fell it. We left the base of the trunk and turned it into a seat. Now new growth is sprouting out all over it. Turns out the fungus had got in through the top branches (airborne), so the roots and all the new growth are unaffected.

vertical line I'm looking at this heat wave we are having, now that you remind me, meteorological summer is here. I should start a fast during this seasonal transition, as I intend to do and as I have been doing for a few years now at the presence of the turning over of seasons. So, yes, looks like I will begin today.

vertical line I only usually do a three day fast. With a 2 to 3 day breaking which comes to a 6-7 day process. I know for me it's an excellent way to clear the thoughts in those first 3 days when my mind goes into a stir of thinking. I'm working on making that break period a bit less abrupt. Easing through it better. Keeping hydrated is key (water) and listening to the body and exercising conscious breathing to calm the nerves.

vertical line With the constant flow of information and sensations, one feels as if there is a self that is aware

So, the awareness of the past. Memories.
Bring them up, revel in the thoughts, feelings
Then it gives them power. Power to determine Karma.
Past actions of good and bad. They form the seed from which karma grows.
Plant an apple seed and an apple tree will grow
What one sows is what one reaps

This birth and rebirth bring the forces of action and inaction to bear
Living a good life is no longer just a philosophy
It bears it Karmic forces on the next rebirth.

But, if Buddha himself said that there is no migration of spirit
Then what is it that is reborn?
Buddha spoke of people like drops of water
Each drop of water is like a person split off
And when it becomes time to return to the source
The individual drop is gone
Another drop can come out
The karmic forces are still there
They play out their scenes

Buddha freed himself from Karma
And thus has no more rebirth
he has moved on to perfect Nirvana

Where is this awareness one has spoken of?

vertical line Sit and let go of thought
Focus upon the breath
This action or inaction
Brings no power to the thoughts
There is no repression of thoughts
They are let go.
Focus is upon breath
And the mind gains strength
No longer jumping around like the monkey
Single minded focus. Mindfulness.
