  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.

what harshness, rory?

is harshness when not agree with attempting teaching love?

when loving, what's left to feel disturbed if not agreed with?

Hi, Rory - Reaching  Out Requires You to  radiate Loving kindness which you have done exceptionally well. Sharing with all what metta is all about.

Metta

Metta, loving-kindness, is to be started within ourselves. If we can say that we love ourselves, can we harm ourselves by having angry thoughts within ourselves?   If we love a person, will we do harm to him? To love the self means to be free from selfishness, hatred, anger, etc.; and unless we ourselves possess metta within, we cannot share or radiate, we cannot send this metta to others.

********

Metta is not merely benevolent thought but the performing of charitable deeds, active ministry for the good of one and all; a subject not to be talked about, but to put in our being, to suffuse it within ourselves.

********

We are asked to be loving towards all living beings, therefore metta must go hand in hand with helpfulness, with willingness and a spirit of sacrifice for the welfare of other beings. In the Digha Nikaya it is said by the Buddha that almost every virtue such as unselfishness, loving-sympathy and loving-kindness is included in this metta.  If you have real metta you can be almost everything; you can radiate a noble, grand peace.  It is this metta that attempts to break away all barriers which separate beings from one another.

Replying. Under-estimating. Some Time In Conceit

Conceit is a fog, which envelops a man's real character beyond his own recognition.

It weakens his native ability and strengthens all his inconsistencies.

Because everything changes moment to moment,

we should treasure everything in this moment.

Because everything changes from moment to moment,

we should not be attached to anything in this moment.

vertical line bullshit logs? that's a new one, in a nice kind of way

today, I had to wait around a lot, so I began to think... "What is this all for?"

A girl walked by with a black cat in her arms, being loved so much.
A few people were getting cookies from a bakery, which took a lot of thought, in picking out "just" the right ones.
Some older men were talking math, sitting at a table, eating food, but seemed to love talk more.

I just sat and watched, and my love was spent in waiting, and watching.

Who is being payed in love? It seems to require honest values, and being alone, to me.

Probably harder to love onself if one invokes feelings of guilt for not living up to
some nimwits opinion on how a person possesed with metta should carry out ones life.

Sorry for my rudness, I just dislike anything that could smell of suggestion or recipe for
how one should live ones life. I`d rathers liked it to say that expressing ones true nature might lead people in a direction where they are grateful of the opportunity to experience the joy and fulfillment of beeing able to help others, beeing regarded as a positive element in life, or something.

vertical line What a beautiful day today! The sun is shining, I fell a couple dead birch trees, and still have my hands attached. It's great! Now I just have to let that wood dry. Nothing like the smell from a birch fire on a cold winter's day.

vertical line Ah, big yawn and a stretch...eeeeeuuuurrahhh, yes that mattress was a definite improvement on the previous mattress. Love and compassion - what a choker.

Ok, chokes, no sorry, jokes, ahem, now is there anybody being, reading this? Tap once for yes and two for no.... ..... ... .. .

Right, jokes...Have you ever seen a fox eating shit out of a wire brush? Now, this is not a joke, no, oh no. See, this question begs other questions - viz-a-viz: Why is the fox eating shit out of a wire brush? What is the shit doing in the wire brush? Where is the sustenance for the fox? And so on and on and on. However, it may still be a funny image to some but as I said, it's no joke, especially if you're the fox.

Now, Watching someone grinning 'like' a fox eating shit out of a wire brush is funny in a tasteful way. The question about this statement's joke-status then is clearly irrelevant. Furthermore, both scenarios involve the faculty of imagination coming to the fore of consciousness, which isn't necessarily always a good thing.

So anyway, as I was saying, neither foxes nor dogs, mares and does. cows and little lambs joke about milk, sprites and cookies, love and compassion, life's bullshit...hello? hello? anybody there yet?

vertical line Flies seem to have voices, that we choose not to hear, and if they were to speak, would it be angry, or would they be pleased with the way we treat them? I'm sure they are pleased when I'm dead. But how can I please them before that?

vertical line I'm talking to a fruit fly - that was my soliloquy to a fruit fly via the poster known as woodsman. I could be talking to you when I'm talking to the fruit fly but if you want to please a mosquito you'll need to open your arms and sacrifice...but first ditch the phrasebook along with the Love & Compassion spectacles.

Flies all share in the one breath, spirit and destiny, so maybe the voice some of us are choosing not to hear is that voice.
