→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: I HAD A DREAM! OF A MONK?? HE SPOKE TO ME!
vertical line Posted on Aug.02.2012 @ 12:42PM EDT by LeonBasin
Hello!

I had a dream last night of a monk coming to me and speaking to me in my dreams. This has happened before, but the first time the monk did not say anything, he just stared and watched me.
However, this time it was a different monk and his name was, "Pabongka Riponche." (He wrote: "Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand”) I read only a few pages of this book, thus it is weird to see him in my dreams. He spoke only a few words, but he said one thing that I cannot recall, but when I heard it, it really had me going. It was a good thing, but I felt like my brain was melting, because it was so powerful and strong and it resonated with me strongly. Anyways, would love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks all,
Leon

I was just thinking about how Alan Watts and Frank Herbert (author of Dune), used to take LSD together - LSD supplied by Alan Watts, before Frank Herbert wrote Dune. Then I got to thinking about how they both used to read Alan Corbin, in particular Alan Watts.

vertical line I enjoyed "Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand" (On the Lamrim). The meditations were very good. I read "The Middle Way" by the Dalai Lama which is a good piece to read in succession to Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand.

vertical line A lubricant for a few pages more of Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand with Henry did it work? Corbin. Not Watt s/ who followed Corbin. And Frank. No jam today; no liberation of a provisionally defined self tomorrow. Exhilarating. Liberating. And one time mescaling. Denies not the infinite and keeps the counter-game well hidden in the final dissolution of the world.
