(1025-1100), one of the well known Chinese Ch'an masters:

Women they come and women they go. True love can be the worst situation possible. Can drive a good man insane. All should be loved but not too much. True love is also a reflection of the moon. MU

Sexual Love

Watched a documentary on Tibetan snow leopards. They are very solitary territorial hunting animals that use overhanging rocks as places to leave their scent -- to warn other leopards to keep away. The documentary followed a magnificent male around.  He had a huge slightly bent tail, beautiful markings, and some battle scars around his face. He and a smaller leopard, a female, crossed paths, but her scent on the marking rocks told him to stay the heck away from her.

Then she came into estrus in the Spring. When the male smelled her scent he went totally ga ga. Eventually he tracked her to the top of a rocky mountain that overlooked three valleys. She was calling out to him. He replied, and they had a conversation that went on for a few hours.

Gradually he approached her and she made it clear he was welcome. I have to say, she was pretty! What happened then was remarkable.  They engaged in a little kissy kissy behavior, kissing each other around their faces. Finally she stretched out on a rock and invited him to join her. The mating was incredibly gentle. That was it.

A few months later the robot camera caught her passing with her cub.

Recently I was introduced to a new concept: Any decision we might make comes either from love or fear, there are no other beginnings. Consequently I have been catching thoughts and asking where they come from, here is the interesting bit, I ask my heart not my head and what it says has been very interesting (of course I can not ask my heart anything it is muscle but something other than my head or conscious thought) it seems to know a lot of things to have many insights my head might not readily see. I have always had more trouble with the concept of love then any other would I have named intuition, perhaps budha nature, (true self) love?

vertical line I feel it is a nature free of pride, but one which stems from the ability to look at everything as holding infinite potential, not just what I think is worthy, but more what I feel is unworthy, and honoring that within myself, so to honor it in others, as in all creation, and thought. And that honor arises naturally after I have let go of the primary goals and wants. Where there is great noise, great discontent, there is room for stillness... nothing special, just serving the need to relinquish control over the pain. Calmness arises as a new beginning eternally.

vertical line So anyways... I lose my snorkel in the lake, and gave up looking for it with the mask.
Gave up, sat on the beach... then something led me back in.

This is the way  love is...

I walked out, without looking down, in about 5 feet of wavy water, reached straight down and picked it up, out in love,  it felt more-like, looking inside.

Then laughed out of love for looking in.

vertical line People tend to make waves, and I sit on the side, inside looking out at it all, and think, "how lost".

What is inside them that I, have lost touch with?

The means to breathe, within them?

Thought associations work this way, for me, and for them, it can.

I begin, by  getting nothing back, except to breathe beneath the waves of emotional change.

I rise from the sands of time, and walk into the unknown, knowing I have done this before, in other bones, flesh, bodies, waves, changes all, from within the deep, inside reaching down.
