Sakuladayi the Wanderer asked the Buddha:
-What is the past and what is the future?
The Buddha answered:
-Let the past be and forget the future. I will teach you that... continue...

vertical line Think about one human day. Being human for one whole day. Think about you. One day of your existence. What is one whole day for you? Every ache and every itch. Without a single comparison, can you stop and know how you really are right now? How am I right now? No adjectives, no labels, no hats, not this, not that. Just how are you really?

vertical line You're death. That's how you are. Knowing that is your vantage point. Try not to pussyfoot around it.

vertical line It's based on Neil Gaiman's book, American Gods.

It's about all the gods who have been brought to America by different peoples and then mostly abandoned. Old gods that end up on the fringes of American society, pimping, waiting on tables etc. And the new gods, the internet gods, the smart phone gods, the shiny bright new gods that Americans now worship and mostly sacrifice to. It's about the war that's coming between the old and the new gods.

I've read the book but then I've read quite a lot of Neil Gaiman's output. I like the show - I've watched it and I will probably watch it again.

vertical line See the Notes:

You lost yourself and become bodhidharma!

Learning to see the world as it truly is

Usually the perception becomes cloudy, because of thoughts and daydreams,

while sitting we get lost in thoughts, just come back and focus here and now

it may be hard to be aware for a long period, it seems to be a habit to fall back in thoughts again and again, so come back to this moment again and again as well.

while washing your hands,feel the sensations on the skin, taste the odour of the soap. while you eat your food, taste it with your whole being.

just come back. again and again. by and by it becomes more easy

awareness is just focussing on the present moment

the step to drop it is quite hard

what is your experience?

vertical line Death [as the fact of death] penetrates the heart.

Desire as it is penetrates only the mind.

When you know death you know the rights of life from the heart.

So, if death is more on your consciousness than desire your meditation is doing well.
