  In reading scriptures and studying the doctrines, you should turn all words
right around and apply them to yourself. All the verbal teachings point to
the inherent nature of the immediate mirroring awareness. As long as this
is... continue...

vertical line Posted on Oct.24.2012 @ 01:42AM EDT by esoteric
If you meet a hungry man, give him something to eat.

If you are asked to speak, then speak.

An empty cup will not help a thirsty soul.

A silent temple has no Buddha.

Early to bed and early to rise will make a man healthy, wealthy, and wise,

But meditation .... 

Maybe more, much much more, than that.

Sometimes.

Sometimes only two.

Once, only One.

vertical line It is advice to a fellow learning the way of the gate
Follow the advice and you are on the eight fold path.

Mighty mouse is on the way
When there is a wrong to right
Mighty mouse will join the fight
On the sea or on the land
Mighty mouse has got it well in hand .... hahaha

vertical line 1 2  & 3 are fairly self-explanatory on the face of it.  Perhaps they have hidden depths.
I  won't always give a hungry person something to eat because I don't always have anything to eat on me. Don't meet many hungry persons nowadays, at least not physically. Plenty of hungry ghosts apparently but I never feed them either though the Tibetans do.

I won't always speak if asked to if I don't have anything to say.  Though I might say this.

Then no. 4 is on a different level. Maybe it means that a silent temple has no Buddha because it needs no Buddha. 

How did I score? Only kidding.
