It's in every patient's room I enter! And they talk about it at the desk! With all the little cut-downs and ego-building. I want less! So, I just shut up, and heal through silence, other senses, by being put on the spot. I'm a drain.

Next deprivations? Cars.Cities.  Fashion.  And politics, except Obama. Don't ever wear a tie.

When you say "lost", do you mean 'misplaced', as in being unable to remember where you put/left/last saw the child? Or are you referring to what it feels like for a parent to experience the death of a son or daughter?

Quote: "If Buddha lost a child, would he lament? "

I dont see any reason why not.

The Buddha like all else 'is', and no matter what cannot escape 'is'. Is is the paradox that stands alone, so where can one go. If one dissapears as one and becomes the 'all of all' then they would definately be lament as much as they are anything else.

What is the real truth of Buddhahood. Not interested in the myths.

And then the Buddha may not lament equally.

Paradox in all may be the experience.

Outside of experience what is there?

You cant say nothingness because nothingness itself is experience itself as itself as IS, as is, and paradoxically is that.

It would be unbecoming for the big chief (of non-suffering) to admit lamenting.
