  One day the Buddha was asked by the naked ascetic Kassapa:
-Master Gotama, is suffering created by oneself?
The Buddha replied:
-Not so, Kassapa.
-Then, is suffering created by another?
-Not so, Kassapa.
-Then,... continue...

The timing was right on though and it gave me the power to bring some friends home from the bar. So the experience had its purpose, whether it lasts or not wasn't the point. 

It came in through my dog, he gave me a look  O_O

I can remember that look.

When I was a shaman my life was devoted to the accumlation of personal power.

I believed in that, and found many illusions and delusions to support the theory.

None of that matters.  I know there is no Power.  There is just Being.

It is Being.

So there is just to accept thing as It is.

(PS, Rustic:  My friend Lucifer knows he has no power. Does not even want any.)

Quote: "Habeas Corpus. Some people, apparently, define themselves in terms of their bodies, thoughts, sexuality, careers, beliefs, religions etc. It has been suggested that those who are awakened are deserving of sorrow because they have lost everything, when the realisation that there isn’t anything to lose is a cause for celebration. Losing everything doesn’t include losing your religion it seems."
.........

I would say not.

Shunyro Suzuki, dying of cancer, said something like, Do not feel sorry for me,  I know who I am.  I am not afraid to die.

I know who I am.  I am not afraid to die.  And I am not afraid to live either, since I see no difference between the two.

I am a Buddhist because I am Buddha.  I know that.  But it is not a point of pride, as you would surely suspect, because I also know that you, and the river, and the mountain, this whole universe, and uncounted more planes of existence, can make the same claim.

"
.........

All the claims are yours. As was your claim that [we?] should feel sorry for those who are awakened.

Yeah, yeah.  Whatever.

When you think "Here is God" and you feel "here is his awsome authoriy", and say,"all of this is true."

When you don't think and feel anything about God and his authority at all, where is God's authority then? Is this situation true or not?
