Re: My new neighbor

Well the guy stayed the whole night and left in the morning, and now the first guy is back and it's just like the whole thing never happened. Absolutely makes my skin crawl, I'm sorry but it does. And no I certainly won't be "hitting on her" now(I like to take things slow anyway). I don't even want...

Re: My new neighbor

That reminds me of a joke in rather poor taste: "What's the difference between a slut and a bitch?" "A slut sleeps with everyone, a bitch sleeps with everyone but you." Seriously, get over yourself. This woman's life decisions are not your business. She could be polyamorous. They could be FWB. She c...

Re: TRUCK FUMP

My original post was, of course, meant as humour. However: The concept of universal compassion without exclusion is of course a basic belief, but if we ally it to the concept of 'ahimsa' then this thought springs to mind re. Trump and others like him: Destroy his ability to harm others because harm...

Re: TRUCK FUMP

If anything we need to show more compassion to those that are creating the conditions for tremendous suffering in the future, not to mention the tremendous mental suffering that leads to such a distorted worldview in the present. This doesn't mean holding hands and singing Kumbaya, but rather that o...

Re: Hemp oil

How do you account for the bushiness and yield of certain strains? Are the stringy tall varieties regional or non domestic or is that also a myth? Selective breeding of phenotypes. The same way that THC content has been increased drastically. So-called Sativa phenotypes are primarily from Afghani l...

Re: Hemp oil

The distinction of "Sativa" and "Indica" is largely urban myth. In reality, almost all genetics in modern cannabis production are phenotypes (often mistakenly called "strains") of Cannabis indica outside of some landrace varieties and their modern hybrids. Autoflowering varieties have Cannabis ruder...

Re: Ole Nydahl´s sectarian meltdown

When we take teachings from a lama, we are not swearing fealty to them. We are undertaking to practice what they have taught. Whether someone has been endorsed as a teacher or been given a title, we should still inspect them to see if they represent both the buddhadharma as we understand it *and* ou...

Re: Why does Gelug school claim emptiness means things exist without self nature?

I don't think I agree. For example, when one, a beginner, dissolves appearances into emptiness, is that emptiness conceptual or nonconceptual? When at the end of a sadhana one dissolves the deity into emptiness, is that emptiness conceptual or nonconceptual? If one is below the path of seeing, it i...

Re: Former Pentagon UFO official: 'We may not be alone'

Delve back through your thicket and you will find that what I actually said is that I didn't see how it would affect MY practice. The 'fruition' of that practice is to abide in Original Mind beyond all arising phenomena, the known and the speculative. If your practice is inspired by the idea of fut...

As for Simon's above observation, maybe the thread should be moved to the lounge where people are free to speak about ufos and the English Premier league freely. Vasana, are you suggesting that gushing over Pep Guardiola's genius in some way will aid in reducing Dukkha? How does that work then? Pep...

Re: What is a Man?

Here we get into a lexical problem. In English, we have at the moment two categories. You're a man or you're a woman. We don't have the diction for describing oneself as, say, category 3 subtype C. We don't really have the words for it. And in a sense, that's OK, because the definitions I proposed ...

Re: The Aro Authenticity Debate.

If the Dharma, which says that all things are impermanent, is also impermanent, does that mean that there are things etc that are, in fact, permanent and eternal? Hmm... :thinking: I think this thread might be one such thing. https://dhammawheel.com/download/file.php?id=2654&sid=234a354480f0e25eb2c...

Re: Pagan Deity Propitiation by Dharma Siblings

I think that the problem of relying on a harmful spirit as your Dharmapala is probably far more serious than asking pagan deities for their support. Of course, the key is reliance. If people rely on worldly spirits not to interfere with their practice, it is quite different from relying on them to ...

Re: Pagan Deity Propitiation by Dharma Siblings

This is not my idea so I cannot answer to that. Patrul Rinpoche is accepted as authority by a large percentage of practitioners, and all this also comes from sutras apparently. But it makes sense to me, because in any case it is not the same to go to a doctor and to beg a deity to help you, while h...
