Different winds come from all directions. Some are clear, some carry dust,
some are cold or hot, fierce gales or gentle breezes. In the same way
sensations arise in the body... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: ESTABLISHING INTIMACY
vertical line Posted on Nov.13.2013 @ 04:24AM EDT by sit_teh
Who am I?

This question has followed you into this lifetime, in past lifetimes and will follow you for endless lifetimes. The question itself has no answer because you are living the answer. Every moment, every precious moment, I Am. The fact "I Am" means our bodies manifest Being. Right now, Beinghood is all we know of our Selves. There is not a single speck of quantum dust that is disconnected from the whole of it all. It is only You and You inter-be beautifully just as you are. Establish this kind of intimacy with your Self and you will always be in relationship with Spirit.

"It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in our Selves."

vertical line In stark Zen you are either paying attention or facing death. Attention means attention. Death has innumerable meanings. I choose attention.

Stop being so lazy
When the end of your life nears, you will have no time left for bickering.
Work hard now and see for yourself.
Laziness has no great reward.

Perhaps the desire to find out "what I am" is the cause for being in circle of many existence ......perhaps Buddhism is a natural process that will lead to realization , not just knowledge ...perhaps if human always focus on knowledge , created desire to know , human will always be human , the one they know and wishing to be the one they already know .........

Human due to their polluted energy of emotion / desire will always seek to gain more knowledge and suffering over own confusion of their knowledge ......perhaps Buddhism is not something that we know , or something that we wish to know even something that we will know .......Buddhism in my current understanding , is realization of existence , the cause existence......and is beyond what we seek ....so if we have faith in what we seek and named it as Buddhism , Buddhism will be something that we know and will be something we always seek to know ......

So perhaps is not to seek to know " who Am I", perhaps is realization of "what I am".......thats Buddhism to me .

Deflecting from your lazy self does nothing to improve your situation.
Stop making this about others.
It is your own personal journey.
Stop being lazy and do it!!

Then you even ask the wrong people for their wisdom ... hahahaha
This shows how lazy you really are.
Not knowing and not willing to put in the effort to learn the truth for yourself.

vertical line Everything in life is a game and some people find the game of Zen much more interesting than the game of TV, success or money.  The game is Zen is quite unique, no wonder everyone practices Zen.  If you don't like the game of zen try out another game
