→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: WHAT IS IN THE MIND ARE ILLUSIONS
vertical line Posted on Sep.27.2013 @ 04:27AM EDT by leoj99
You can put anything in the mind but they are all illusions. You can put a big stone in the mind but it is just an illusion. Poke the stone you put in your mind on your head and its empty. It will never hurt you. But take a real stone and poke it in  your head and you will know it is not empty. You cannot put something real in the mind.

So many people are talking about emptiness. That everything is empty as if it is the truth. Take a real stone and poke on your head and you will see if it is empty or not...LOL

vertical line What we think in our mind is none other than the illusion. We develop thoughts in our mind and it create a illusion.

vertical line Exactly thoughts are illusions but many people insists they are real. In fact they love their thoughts and they fight violently when you tell them to stop thinking...LOL... In Zazen they insists that thoughts are the nature of the mind so don't stop it...LOL...and they are forever watching their thoughts arise and falls.. If you ask them how important their thoughts are they are pissed off instead of giving a valid answer...LOL
