Perhaps that is the cause of all existence .........Buddhism is a PROCESS freedom of existence not to further creates existence . To me there is NO "answer"to any question
as Buddhism is a continue process to know , to learn , to explore , to experience any question or any "answer" , any emotions by being awake , by own realization leading to acceptence of ownselves and emptiness .

Human always creates "answer" to statisfy their need to know . Human always creates the distiction of good verses bad , right verses wrong and true verses false by having " The answer" ........

This is part of human learning process ...suffering and long-long path ,,,still this is Buddhism . In my current understanding , there is NO good or bad , no true or false and no right or wrong in Buddhism as all is just part of the PROCESS to discover ownselves .

Buddhism is NOT finding answer to question , or questioning all answer but is to learn from the question and the "answer" to explore ownselves .............

No, sir. You asked the question "How do I become free from myself, free from existence, and not create any more existence?"

And you answered yourself, "Buddhism is a PROCESS freedom of existence not to further create existence."

So Buddhism created an answer there to your question. But is it the right answer?

No sir , I never asked that question .

Buddhism NEVER created any answer to any question , but is MYSELF created question and answer in my PROCESS discovering "myself".......this PROCESS is Buddhism.

There will NEVER be any right or wrong answer , because in Buddhism to me currently - thereis NO right or wrong , no true or false and no good or bad ....is all part of learning process to discover ownself ...thats Buddhism my friend . Do challenge my view for my own learning process .

vertical line Duality and unity ... distinction in Buddhism is that in this life there is duality
Until one realizes the truth of ones nature ... sees into the very core of ones existence .. then there is unity.
But, they exist in harmony together.

There is good and bad. Good being that one gets to have a meal when one is hungry.
Bad is being hungry and having no food.
When enlightened, one sees Buddha nature in everything
All becomes one and there is no distinction between objects or people.
It all comes from the same source.
Both things exist and are very real.
Having one does not mean the other does not exist.

Hitler, Osama, Dalai Lama, Buddha are not the same.
People are different. Truth.
People also come from the same source.
People are the same. Truth.
It depends on where you are ... on the path
For most, without the realization of enlightenment, only duality.

Inviting a serial killer into your home is different than inviting your daughter for dinner.
Don't believe that your ideas about Buddhism being a process will stop the serial killer for murdering you.
So, there is a difference ... hahaha
But, enough of this non-sense.
To get caught up in this will only entangle one in thoughts.

PERHAPS " Good" or "bad" is a marking by human based on their knowledge and human had accepted it as fact ...............Buddhism is beyond all culture , beyond all reasons .

In Buddhism is NEVER good or BAD to get food when hungry but is to understand , discover the emotion during hunger , during deny of food or during having the food .......the emotion is SELF and Buddhism is to discover the SELF .

To me , Buddha is emptiness and all being is EMPTINESS . Human , animal , viruses , door , pen , dust ..Dalai Lama , Osama is all EMPTINESS , is all Buddha BUT with attachment that causes their existence ........Buddhism is NATURAL process freedom of  this atachment .

In my current understanding , all being is SAME and EQUAl . Yes, currently since I am still full of polluted energy  is hard for me to accept this but thats Buddhism .

Dear sir , if you choose to invite a serial killer to your house , that is your learning process and any incident will be part of your learning lesson to understand yourself .

If the serial killer kill my family because I invited him , well this will be my learning process to discover my "love" towards my family , my anger towards the killer ...............this will be part of my learning lesson . The serial killer will never hurt me as the cause of my suffering is always myself .....he will be the teacher that provide a learning lesson to me SAME as Dalai Lama words ......yes that Buddhism . The fact is if this actually happen to me NOW , I will kill him with my own hand because I am currently still full of pollution ...............

So the serial killer is same as Siddharta...providing me a lesson to learn to understand myself .

How to stop thnking when we plan to "stop thinking" and thinking "how to stop thinking"..........

In Buddhism . we will be free on the need to think after there is nothing for us to think ....we will learned to be free on the desire , the emotion of thinking .........NATURALLY.
