  The Buddha was talking with Uttara, a young pupil of the bhramin Parasariya:
-Uttara, does Parasariya teach you how to develop your faculties?
-Yes, Master Gotama, he does teach us how to develop our faculties
-How does he do... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: THE REALIZATION.
vertical line Posted on Jul.15.2019 @ 03:38PM EDT by Bobwidget
This physical body is automatically aware of reality.

This realization is what awoke first man from animal to sentient. All animals possess a physical body that is automatically aware of reality. But they also possess narrow minded attentions for their survival in the animal kingdom. Since we are not mere dumb animals we don't merely survive. We create and craft and learn and grow. Far removed from the animal kingdom.

Once man realized the physical body is automatically aware of reality has attention totally relaxed. There was no longer a need for it. Once the attention totally relaxed the entire physical body totally relaxed. They were no longer focusing nervous system energy.

But in truth man was not the first to awaken. It was a woman. Go figure. So much for woman being the lesser species right? Thank you. Because this is not just about me. But that lady and all my brothers and sisters.

The same sun shines on us all.

2. Animals are not mere dumb animals.
3. Animals create and craft and learn and grow.

vertical line Animals are not like man and not nearly as intelligent. Plus they possess a narrow minded attention. The attention stifles intellect. Plus no attention means awakening and enlightenment and salvation.

vertical line One never have I considered woman the lesser species. Two I refer to all as ma'am. I hold doors for everyone. Plus I'm polite and courteous and friendly. Woman tend to be non aggressive. A trait in men I dislike. So rare is a male called sir that demands my respect unless I sense peace and intellect from them that has overcome their base animal tendency to be aggressive.

This is something you both have shown otherwise.

I can hear a cat drink water from the toilet two rooms away without trying. I can sense the direction and path of a bird chirping and flying above my bedroom with ease. I can understand whispered words without trying to comprehend.

vertical line Untrue. My senses are much more aware of our known lands and knowledge of reality then any mere animal. This is true for all humanity just through experience.

Animals don't suffer mental illness because they are their body's. Humans do imagining other and a narrow attention.

The physical body exists without effort.
The physical body and five senses as one is automatically aware of reality.
The physical body excepts what is true.
The physical body can be totally relaxed without trying.
The physical body automatically releases stress.
You don't have to try to be the physical body.
Let the physical body totally relax the attention.
The physical body has no viewpoint of reality.
The physical body is more aware then a focused mindset.
The natural state is being the physical body.

vertical line Honestly and truthfully I did not expect this truth of the body. I figured it was some sort of aware energy of the body. But that's only ever been nervous energy. I cant even not be aware of reality unless I'm sleeping.

The expression is simple. Be the physical body till it becomes natural again just like when being a child. This is what is meant by the biblical expression be like a child again. Also when Jesus said my arm is not separate from my body or my head or legs. As a whole being what I am. Close to this anyway.

vertical line It is.

Let aware energy totally relax and be the physical body. Focusing aware energy to create an attention is dumb. Its already aware. Letting the aware attention totally relax and be the physical body let's the body totally relax and be naturally aware with the physical body. This aware life force must take form. Its the whole point of the body. So yes gods words hold true even though I misconstrued them. The body is aware.

Not only are we the physical body by default by doing nothing the attention will totally relax naturally. It is a strain to maintain. Once done the physical body will be totally relaxed without any effort. As a society we try to relax. This trying is effort meaning strain. Our society is backwards to real truth.

vertical line Wake up call? Being a owner and admin of this website doesn't donate much other then what it is. That's like you being the owner. Or me.

Imagination is mankind's best trait and worst. Our imaginations within create an attention. It focuses nervous energy in emulation of seeing others do it. Making the attention seem solidified within. But still imagination directs it. Mara literally is bad imagination. Our own. Mara without is a excuse to not control the wayward imagination. Might be hard but this is what is meant by taming the bull. I also see the pain in many others. But I don't shrink away from it. Bothers me highly but I won't turn away from others.

vertical line Seems like you struggle with the rules of the road. Weird, because I doubt this is your first time on the Internet. I'd focus driving the speed limit because it doesn't really matter anyway since... you know, ignorance is limitless and the prime example is anywhere anyone has access to a text field and keyboard.

Imagine. You could be wrong. And you are!

That's your imagination. Your idea.

So your saying god don't exist or god can't talk to someone if he wants? The first message was spoken to me as formless slumbering death of spirit prior to this life. The second three years ago.

God don't speak to most because of the frail ego.

God is the energy, the male and female and the moon. Reality. If you faced the truth of reality and being you would see what I see.

The attention is just a created thought.

vertical line There's a tendency among some people to see animals as a commodity. And among those are the inadequates with severe emotional problems who beat, shoot and stab animals or even set them on fire for personal gratification. The neglect of an animal can take many forms and can include not giving the right food, water, shelter or vet care. Because their misery goes on for so long, the animals who die of neglect can suffer just as much as those animals who are specifically harmed on purpose.

vertical line To whom it may concern,

Bob stumbles into a Zen forum for no good reason but to speak his non-Zen mind.

And this new character... well, it doesn't look very promising...

Understandably, they both are seeking compassion.

That's where Phil and I step in...

I think we do our best...

It's always an eye opener when it comes to the Buddhist vow of leading all beings to Liberation before entering my own!

Another day of attempting the impossible!
Very rewarding though.
