  Do not go after the past,
Do not lose yourself in the future.
For the past no longer exists,
And the future is not yet here.
By looking deeply at things just as they are,
In this moment, here and now,
The seeker... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: THE LITTLE MONK
vertical line Posted on Mar.14.2008 @ 05:57AM EDT by asheera

The Little Monk, after years of trudging uphill, finally made it to the Top of The Mountain and Buddha said, "Let me tell you My Secret".  And he wispered into the Little Monk's ear all there was to say.

The Little Monk was overwhelmed.  He ran back down to the Village and told Buddha's secret to everyone.  But no one would listen.  They were either too busy, or they told him he was full of crap for believing such things.

So the Little Monk went back up to the Top of The Mountain and said to Buddha, "Those Village People are really strange.  I tried to tell them what you told me, and no one would listen."

The Buddha said, "Yeah.  Right.  What did you expect.?  I told you its My Secret.  No one can hear it until I tell them."

Maybe you can get a quickie at the YMCA.

Whatever floats your boat.  I've been celibate for over 15 years.  I don't care what other people do.  None of my business.

This is like that joke about the ink-blot test where the patient tells the psychiatrist that he's the one with all the dirty pictures.

Who brought up homosexuality?  I think it was you.

Its nothing to me, one way or the other.  I'm not for it or against it.  If anything, I suppose it is good in that it helps to keep the population down.

I met a girl here named Polly and we had quite a correspondence.  Then later, on another unrelated site, I saw that she had logged in as David.  Whatever.  I really liked him/her, whatever the case. 

Shayne knew her too.  I think they had cyber-sex.

Homosexuality is being; sexual intercourse is doing. I only mention it because you said the little monk (are you the little monk?), thought the Village People are really strange.

vertical line The Big  Monk, after a quick slid downhill, began again at the bottom, of the Sacred Mountain. The wind blew softly through the trees, and there was no word to describe his inner yearning. He could not fill the void, until he stopped trying.

The Monk found emotions to be useless, they lead him into a darkness, in which the only light was in letting go. He allowed the delusion to leave him, as did everything else. Every cause of time stood still, there was only one tone, it was the sound of a bell.

There in the deep woods he created an altar. It created itself, when he sat down, and allowed it to happen. It was as if the ground itself had life, for which he served in prostrations.

His eyes looked heavenward, there was nothing else to call it. His mind was at last free to rest, above as below the horizon. The next thing to cause him to feel release, was the voice, in the wind, saying... "You Are Home."
