Re: "Mercy" killing of a dying animal - moral doubts

The idea that we can save any being from further suffering is something of a delusion. When we euthanize an animal, we are not putting them out of their misery, we are putting them out of our own misery. We are putting them out of their current misery. No, we are putting them our of our current mis...

High quality.
I try my best.
It’s shows, honestly. So very clear.
Agreed. This subject matter is better served rendered into the clear & sparing prose characteristic of BITL rather than any bloating due to attempts to make the language flowery, poetic or "modern".

With some amazing technology funded by kind US taxpayers through Nasa & some headphones, we can experience the deep resonance of the natural Sounds of the Sun. Amazing.

Just because there aren't any overt thigh-slappers in the Pali Cannon, why make the sweeping assumption that Nirmankaya Buddhas, don't enjoy and even employ humor?

Re: Accept, respect, love, gone

Hello friends, That is basically my experience, 18 y.o. to present (50 y.o.). What comes next? In other words, i learned to accept reality as is, to respect all experiences of others, to care for them and to die (gone). What comes next? If this is your path, and the reality you've learned to accept...

Here we go back on topic. Dzogchen without Buddhism, without an unbroken lineage of realization, transmission and practice is populated by demons and will break your heart, your mind and ruin your life.
Or it is a car without an engine.

Re: Meditate and grow your ego

Speaking of "Alpha Males", try doing a search for PUA and meditation. You might find it amusing. :smile: Funny, but illustrative. The idea of "meditation" as it is used in the article and in the culture of preying on women is precisely why the original article about mediation and ego is meaningless...

I glanced at it briefly, I really can't tell whether or not it's legit without further reading. Personally I would follow the suggestion of As it is, or another more well known text.
