→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: IDEA MASTER ?
vertical line Posted on Jan.17.2008 @ 09:18AM EDT by stephen

I was told by a very wise man once that as a human we all have about 6 original ideas in our lifetime. 1 in one thousand will do something with one of their ideas. 1 in one thousand of them will put that idea into motion or action. The master would have us see the idea as impermanence and having dependence arising. I would agree but for split second in time it is a flash of lighting. MU

vertical line And now you are required to clarify:

Who is this very wise man - is he still around?
Where did this very wise man obtain his data?
How did this very wise man arrive at his conclusions?
Why is this very wise not very original?

vertical line Every 1,527.2799 years, when the moon is in the street, the porridge is in the pot, the rind is on the rind and on the rise, when the crow mates with the cat and the horseman is abroad in his dandy pomp, the swamp gives up its terrible treasure for a limited buy one get one free deal.

vertical line Why would a wise man want to limit himself to only 6 oringinal thoughts per life time.  Are you sure that you want to listen to that kind of limiting wisdom?

vertical line Is that what was said? Well, well. The response to what was said, went something along the lines of that wise old man concerning himself with limiting and limited thoughts about stuff he couldn't possibly know. Anyway, this is what I said: when it comes to that wise old man, I'm a non-believer.

vertical line Wait a minute, that's more than one two-faced face seen. And where there are two hands on the facer, er, there is no third bush only a light under the mountaintop and er, yeah it's all a psychologically accurate tight fit - the time sponsored by.
