  A monk asked the priest Kan-feng:
-Bhagavats in the ten directions got one straight road to Nirvana. I dare to ask where that road is?
Kan-feng lifted up his staff, drew a line in the air, and said:
-Here it is.

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: I HAD A DREAM
vertical line Posted on Jul.10.2018 @ 09:53PM EDT by Avisitor
I had a dream where I was waiting to be seated in a restaurant
The Maitre d' would keep giving me excuses
As more time went by, I felt the urge to get revenge for being ignored

When I woke up, I realized that I had still much work to do upon myself.
Anger and rage, wanting revenge ... these are all things of our present mind
I have not changed.

After meditation for so many years, I would have times when I encountered
myself following the moments of meditation
Quiet and serene. But, as soon as other people crossed my path

Did not think I was still a peg stuck in a hole
But, a lesson learned

You are living in a computer-programmed reality which is subject to changing variables.

vertical line And as I can see, not much has changed here after I left
Phil is still doing his act as someone who likes to poke the bear
So-teh is still following the wind and its changes

What can be learned here?

vertical line You appear to have learned a provisional imitation for advantage in order to promote rivalry. Nice one! And there's nothing to leave.

vertical line There are no secrets.
It is all there if you have the wisdom to see it.
And for what it is worth, it is nice to get a reply from an empty vessel such as the internet

vertical line Secret only in the sense that it's your journal, your gospel - a gospel with which you can practice the art of book-dipping.

vertical line Initially, I wasn't sure why the Maitre d' or anyone else for that matter would presume to ignore you of all people, but then I realised that by ignoring you he/she was demonstrating that they couldn't give a big flyin' F about your asinine arrogant presence or your negative urges.

.........
Talking about the Matre d', you are only talking outside of yourself.
You have realized ... wrong thought
You lost yourself.

Asinine arrogant presence or negative urges?
The presence is not real
The negative urges are from a place not real
The lesson learned.
