vertical line Posted on Nov.18.2011 @ 01:44PM EDT by chontri
Living in the world is like a big dream.
Why so toil yourself to making living?
Just die yourself thoroughly at once one time,
and you will live forever until your next death.

vertical line no coming, no going.

no birth, no death.

to answer your question, chotri; we toil because we buy into the dream, ie.. illusion. by buying into `the dream we can also learn to see what is not. we can see by not seeing.

vertical line living in `the world, ie... time, is the historical dimension.

seeing from `the world of illusion, time, we can touch the ultimate dimension, ie... space.

as in... "Just die yourself thoroughly at once one time,
and you will live forever until your next death"....... impermanence; no self;

i realize chontri person, i now need a cup of green tea and a nap....

vertical line Dream. What?? Are ya frigging nuts?? The world is in turmoil, one ought to protect ones investment and prepare for the coming economic collapse, or worse!

Ever wondered why US, which incidentally has superpower monopoly on secret information, suddenly has started to spend money like a drunken sailor?? Accumulating trillions in debt with no actions or plans to handle the situation before AFTER 2012!

Even more spooky, is it not not impossible that the very nation might in reality be run by slightly retarded self medicating individuals with extreme personality disorders and propensity to base important decisions on "gut instinct" the bible and  Mayan prophecies?!
 
Who knows, might it be that 2013 is the year the people find out that there is no plans neither to get out of the Iran war, nor to speak of expelling the pasdaran soldiers occupying the entire west coast and Utah!

And might it not be then, that California (and Utah) turn on the rest of the US because of the rice in living standard from the vast amount Iranian money spent. lobbying troop placement and the easing of the justice system after implementation of Sharia laws??. And if you look at the American flag you`ll amazed and graced like, OMG   it’s full of stars! And, eh.. Dang, think I lost it, that last must be from some film I saw and uh,... where am I? Who are you? Daaaisy, daaaaaisyyy...gnnhhh...

I foresaw and planned for economic collapse about 20 years ago.  I moved to the remote Olympic Peninsula from DC and bought some real estate.  I figured that would be a safe investment because I can live on it, in it, or rent it, and because those who are collapsing the economy, on purpose, also own real estate and they therefore have to protect my investment in the process of protecting their own.

The reason that I foresaw the economic collapse is that Baby Boomers are now coming into retirement age.  The Social Security money had already been stolen by Congress, and Pres Clinton had just announced a plan to *borrow* 401K money the same way, with Treasury Bills.  Thats just an IOU from the Govt.  Worthless.  I figured that when Baby Boomers were due to retire, the Govt would have two choices:  Crash the economy to conceal their theft, or admit that they stole the money.

So now the economy will crash, and the Govt will say, *Oh so sorry that you lost your investments, but dont worry because we are bringing in Socialism to take care of you.*

Ive set things up so that I have some rental property, and an acre in the woods where I can live inexpensively from that income.  But I still dont feel safe.  Its like living on Orwells Animal Farm, and Im pretty sure the Pigs want everything.

Yellow leaves flying

Glowing, glowing, glowing...

Autumn is here
Leaves shining yellow, red, and brown
Under the quiet sun 
Strong winds blowing
Yellow leaves flying
away from where they were
and falling down to where they'd hit.
Glowing, glowing, glowing...

The drops of rain falling from the eaves
splashing against the bright brown boards of the deck
making sounds.

Some little birds jumping from one branch of the tree
to another to find something to eat and chirping.

Yellow leaves still glowing over the little creek
under the rain and the grey sky.

The big old cedar keeps strong and fresh silver-green as ever.

Here are some words hope they make it clear:

vertical line I was laying down for sleep a night ago and I had the exact thought when I heard the light bulb make that sound. I wondered if anyone else listened to sounds like that. And one evening ago I was at home in the quiet and heard a very slight tick sound and wandered over by the screen of the window and it was some insect (not a bug). I wondered how ever so quiet it was to my ears yet who is listening? By the way...

vertical line Let us see... was fascinated by watching heat waves rising off the road when I was driving home from my dentist's appointment today.  I just thought... how little, practically nothing, but amazingly powerful and wonderful to witness, with clean teeth.

There was a spider on the floor at work last night and I was glad to see him. Another person came by, saw the spider on the floor and squished it.

We try to control too much of nature.

The light bulb is not sounding now!

oh, there it goes, thanks.... did I do that?

Of course the moment you think the moment is gone. Thoughts is only good for the past and future which is not real... which is not reality.
That is why if you think it is too wordy. You don't think you see and words can never describe what you see.

Correctness.

Those who are so egotistical that they believe they should correct others....

Starduster, if you see a baby crawling into the road with oncoming cars, you would correct that situation by getting the baby out of the way of cars, right?

And if you see a man walking into the road in front of an oncoming bus, you would correct that situation by getting the man out of the path of the bus, right?

If you are too far away, maybe you would yell at the man, "Hey! Get out of the way, there's a bus coming."

Maybe there's no difference between people getting hit by cars and buses, and people not getting hit by cars and buses. So, just watch people get hit by cars and buses if there's no difference to you.

If you think nothing needs to be corrected, then don't correct anything. That means not criticizing as well, because criticism is trying to correct something.

Correcting, yes. Criticizing, no. Criticism is trying to correct something or someone by calling them bad. If that works for you, great. You know that it's working if you get the result you want. Otherwise you might just keep complaining, complaining, complaining and always see the same result. Then everything is a complaint, and maybe that's not so great.

I'm not saying anything is good or bad. Just, some words got posted that showed some incorrect thinking, so I made some comments about them. Like when someone says, "Some people believe it's a good thing to wear a black shirt. So they go around wearing a black shirt. That's just wrong and disgusting!" And someone else points out the obvious, "Well...um...you're wearing a black shirt." You know. That kind of thing.

Still sounds like you are criticizing when you made some comments about them. Of course there are two types of criticism. One is positive and the other negative. You seem to focus on the negative ... well that was the feeling I got from your post. Could be wrong?

So, there is positive criticism and negative criticism, and they are both forms of correcting something, right? Just so that we are talking about the same things, I will try to identify them.

Positive criticism is pointing out what could be improved or made correct, and explaining why and how, right?

And negative criticism just points out how bad or incorrect something is, with disapproval or disfavor, and might not explain why or how to make it correct or good, right? So, basically complaining, and perhaps insulting.

I see your point. These are definitely two very different ways of correcting.

So, if you have any shopping to do, or there are familial obligations you are required to observe, maybe there is an aunt you should visit, or perhaps you need to tag and bury your dead, now is the time to do it - it hasn't manured in an age.

And negative criticism just points out how bad or incorrect something is, with disapproval or disfavor, and might not explain why or how to make it correct or good, right? So, basically complaining, and perhaps insulting. (it can be but it is basically saying there are things wrong with the other person's ideas or thoughts)
