O monks, even if you have insight that is pure and clear but you cling to
it, fondle it and treasure it, depend on it and are attached to it, then you
do not understand... continue...

It is arguable to say that I even really exist.  How can I be dead or alive then ?

My understanding is that I am as I am being created, by my Self, and I can be uncreated just as easily.

A buddha is someone who becomes awakened without a teacher, and an arhat is someone who becomes awakened with a teacher.  A meaningless distinction, since awakening always comes from the Self because there is no one else, whether through a teacher or not.

Whether one is hit with a hand or a stick held in a hand makes no difference since the end result is the same.

I have never understood what is meant by killing the buddha.  Except maybe that there should be no middle man between yourself and your Self.  Accept no substitutes.

vertical line I rose up this morning and the first thing I see, that stands out to me since I am simple dud, and dude, is a leaf floating in the very center of the backyard birdbath. And it is motionless, as I stand looking at if for a minute. Then go up front and see the birdbath out there is tipped over, the raccoons have had a drink at night, it was at the center of their desire to taste what the birds bathe in. So that one is needing a fill. But first fix the dog gate in the hallway so pups can't run free to the back and wake me up again on a day where I can sleep past seven am

vertical line God breathes [me] in.

The [non-calcified] pineal gland relies on a contstant supply of oxygen-rich blood - breathe in an increased heart rate and breathe out a reduced blood pressure.

God breathes [me] out.
