  Find a place where you are alone and train yourself
in this way:

When you breathe in, experience breathing in.
When you breathe out, be fully conscious that
you are breathing out.
If you cherish and practice... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: THE THREE REAL TRUTHS
vertical line Posted on Dec.20.2012 @ 06:39AM EDT by IZIZIZ

The First Real Truth is to know that Happiness is something that you need to become.

The Second Real Truth is to know that Happiness itself can cure all that can be suffered in this reality.

The Third Real Truth is to know that Happiness is already there inside of you waiting to become you.

vertical line You do not seem to be a Buddhist
Or you do not believe in the Four Noble Truths.

In any case, I do not believe in your truths.
But, I will not say that it doesn't ring true for you.
You have made your choice and ... wish you luck in your endeavors .... hahaha

I hope it wasn't in my appendix as I had that removed when I was eighteen.

vertical line Sorry to interrupt, but it seems that some sages on the stages here, espouse a Buddhism based on conflict with others, and it feels like I'm the only person sitting in the audience.

and revelation is, that you are part of us.

So is it nigh for you?

You.  You. You. Nigh. Nigh. Nigh.

The river runs where it does. Not nigh.

'Tis the season of moderation on moderation - I invoke the capacity to perceive all truths as true even if they contradict.

A monk asked Nansen, "Is there any Dharma that has not been preached to the people?"

Nansen answered, "There is."

"What is the truth that has not been taught?" asked the monk.

Nansen said, "It is not mind; it is not Buddha; it is not things."

Mumon's Comment

At this question, Nansen used up all his treasure and was not a little confused.

Mumon's Verse 


Talking too much spoils your virtue;
Silence is truly unequaled.
Let the mountains become the sea;
I'll give you no comment.
