Not to be reached by traveling is the end of the world,
Yet there is no release from sorrow
Unless you reach the end of the world.

The one who is wise and lives... continue...

vertical line Stop whining.
Go out to the store and ask the first pretty girl you see if she wants to have coffee with you.
Keep doing that until you find one who is willing to talk with you.

That depends on which side of the gun you are standing
Love blinds and it confuses ... otherwise how can a man bend on one knee and ask to be chained to a woman for the rest of his life??

Love has no way. No opposite. Only the idea you want for it. Take the word love out of your vocabulary. And maybe you'll find a place for it. Otherwise... let it be.

There is decidedly many forms of love
And just as many notions of what love should be
I take it and hold onto it .. believe in it and worship it
But, in the end, it is no more than me and not less than me.

vertical line Just because you’re naked
Doesn’t mean you’re sexy,
Just because you’re cynical
Doesn’t mean you’re cool.
You may tell the greatest lies
And wear a brilliant disguise
But you can’t escape the eyes
Of the one who sees right through you.

In the end what will prevail
Is your passion not your tale,
For love is the Holy Grail
Even in Cognito

So better listen to me, sister,
And pay close attention, mister:
It’s very good to play the game,
Amuse the gods, avoid the pain,
But don’t trust fortune, don’t trust fame,
Your real self doesn’t know your name
And in that we’re all the same:
We’re all incognito.

vertical line God is a non-concept. God by itself has little value. Whatever theory attached to the name 'god' is not of actual experience. When god is turned into a devise for worship, an external all knowing Being or prayer answerer it becomes a false representation of reality. God is a simplistic view of the nature of things. Nature and the universe are such that they exist in inconceivable dynamic law(s) beyond our comprehensive mind. What is known may have great value to human life yet what is unknown expands beyond our imaginations and does not enter our framework of knowledge because of the subtle and invisible unnameable truth. Truth is beyond knowing in the sense that truth is what is. One cannot hold what is, one cannot grasp what is. What is is always changing and always impermanent. God and Truth have very different values and have very different approaches to reality. Opening to the truth is becoming groundless, skeptical and curious. To doubt everything, observe things as they are and experience something for oneself is the way of truth. God on the other hand doesn't belong to reality but is for people ready to accept the past as complete and infallible. God is something to rely on. Truth is "to find out" therefore always moment to moment seeing and acting. [...]

Even if I was to whisper it... oh, now he's squeaking in the front room. He knows even when I think his name without saying it. He is the listening dog's dharma of silence.

The grass isn't greener and we're all in this together, you know. See, things are in their place like a beautiful mosaic, even the suffering in the whole world doesn't effect the heart's spirit. Imagine if the heart was bound to suffering, there would be no will to live, no room to love. We live for each other as much as we live for ourselves. Each of us is a unique expression who share a common reflection. Nature exists in multitude, not two nor one. This life is the breath of mystery. Openness! Our attitude is our signature and our desire to learn is the motive that presents newness in this and every moment.

"Not relying on the words and letters, Teachings are transmitted outside the Scriptures; Pointing directly into one's mind, then one can see into his own nature and attains Buddhahood."
