My dirty, bunny socks need cleaning? Are you up for the task?

i don't judge, if thats zen to you, it is... no bondage... no slavery,  just beingness, buddha, this website reminds me of it, its a funny form of buddhism, i dont think i really has to do with humility or any kind of discipline just a difference in some people, that can be seen in the zen way, the true buddha sees without manipulation simply acts compassionately, even in a non conventional way, not truly forcing, just spreading love, through this dharma all being is  fulfilled by the tao, and all consciousness is caused to attain nirvana.. there is no logic... the laws are followed... say something real, leave a poem, leave a truth,
totally surrender... honor the Goddess, but dont just sound hypnotized... leave a seed of some real truth, dont make us look bad, then the bondage part of it goes away, that is all assumption in truth what is it really, its feet, its roots, the roots of the buddha realm...
nom myoho renge kyo

vertical line reject christianity, you can do better than that!
take all suffering that remains out of the sutras, make new ones, new faith without  karmic anchors holding us all back
thats how bodhisattvas clean the dharma socks...
this is the greatest path
no chop, water carry you

vertical line i honestly don't really know, i just now this website and they way you all go about, it reminds me of that video in many ways lol... so its just something we thought we would call you out on...

not that its bad, as long as its not serious, some people enjoy expressing themselves that way... i dont think we should make assumptions about them, that its anything more than something momentary,
but people who make those situations and really have it in their mind to like control others, i don't know... thats where it becomes real suffering and i think this is not cool, but nothing about feet or being attracted to feet is inherently that, or even inherently about humility really, its just like something zen..

just like nothing about posting on this site is inherently buddhist, or that any of you guys have any understanding, or even are sincere practitioners, its just something zen in the sense that, its words and letters, energy being flung and woven into a forum...

what it means what its ultimately doing is up for anyone to interpret in the end all are buddhas and none are, you could see it many ways, and i do, cannot all be assumed to be one way, its very random... its a mystery

When my stomach is empty, it feels hungry. Then I eat something, and my stomach no longer feels hungry. No two ways about it. Such a mystery!

From Wikipedia

The Dhobi are a caste group found in India and Pakistan who specialize in washing clothes.[2] The word Dhobi is derived from Hindi word dhona, which means to wash. They are found throughout North India, Gujarat, Maharashtra as well as the Punjab province of Pakistan, where they are known as Gazar.[3] The Dhobi is likely to be of diverse origin, with those who ancestors took the occupation of washing clothes evolving over time into a distinct caste, bound by rules of endogamy. Most Dhobis follow the customs and traditions of the region they live, so for example those in North India speak Hindi, while those in Maharashtra speak Marathi.
