  The Buddha was asked:
-To what extent can a person be a speaker of the way?

He answered:
-If a person teaches the way in order to transcend the tyranny of the
material things and to teach how to transcend feelings, perceptions,

STICK OR NON-STICK
the d.o.m.:
The d.o.m. is no-one
he is not anything,
he has no mind or heart of his own.

Because he has no mind or heart of his own,
he may take someone else's mind or heart
as his mind or heart temporarily.

When the other's mind or heart gets stuck,
he gets stuck, too.
When the other's mind or heart no longer gets stuck,
he no longer gets stuck, either.

Stick or non-stick,
Non-stick or stick.
Who knows, who doesn't know?
Some do and some don't.

Non-stick or stick,
Stick or non-stick,
It depends on the kind of pan
that one uses to cook.

Lionel:
My wife uses to instruct me to carry layers of oil for cooking in stick or non-stick pan. She is the one who must be obeyed at home. Therefore I have her heart & mind interest first! However she enjoys the kinda sticking food I cook in her absence. I keep it in a secrete. Only I know it too well, wholeman. Thank you!

'Someone else's'? 'his mind'?

If dom is no one and not anything then taking 'someone else's' mind or heart as 'his' mind or heart is not an option because there is no someone else.

lehish:

miwuwei:

the d.o.m.:
From Polly
...because there is no someone else.

Ms. Polly,
If there is no someone else, then he just does nothing. However, you're here right now, he got something to say like this.

Ms Miyuwei,
If the d.o.m. were a vampire like you said, then there would be no thing of the imagination criticism such as hypocrite or not hypocrite could be applied to him. All of your words here become invalid.

And you can keep your petty pussy for yourself, the vampire doesn't want anything like that of yours.

DavidLeong:
Dear DOM,
Strange enough why do you still carry on with your usual response or work while one had been left out hours ago? The timing is incorrect but on the hand it does remind me by the your following saying:-

Stick or non-stick,
Non-stick or stick.
Who knows, who doesn't know?
Some do and some don't.

Non-stick or stick,
Stick or non-stick,
It depends on the kind of pan
that one uses to cook.

Dear DOM,

Mr David,
Oh! the d.o.m. is getting older every moment. He is really out of dated too much.
Thank you very much for reminding him about this.

By the way, the d.o.m. can hear some noise around here. Who are they? They are the enlightened men, aren't they? If so, the d.o.m. would rather be a deluded old man all his lifetime -as he is now - than to be an enlightened man like that. It's a little too noisy, isn't it?

Master Zen:
It could be the men in white coats coming to take you away to the funny farm?

lehish:
listening with ears? ;)

lehish:
was responsing "It's a little too noisy, isn't it?"

lehish:
>It could be the men in white coats coming to take you away to the funny farm?<

lifeing not funnyfarm?

Lionel:
It is not big deal at all MR DOM! Guess I have to use mosquito net like those olden days living in a rural village. For you, just relax & rest as usaul even the whole world collape. Best blessing always!

Dear DOM,
Well, they are just a few flies, mosquitoes & bees flying around. Guess they must be en-lightened because they seems flying easily & freely with very light weight. What is yesterday is yesterday. Tomorrow is yet to come.

No, with old tough bone, you are as sharp as ever & I personally prefer you to be as NOW than to be an enlightened man. That's remind me quietness of Ananda when Buddha is about to leave. Now I am making noise which is flow out in your hearing nature, right?

Wishing you healthy & fit always~~~

...bowing out...

When the eggs don't stick. The children heve smiles on there little faces!
