Re: How to get angry qualitatively?

So in Tantra you learn to transform your anger (for example) into a means of transcending it. hmm, you see when Prof. Namkhai Norbu says "transform the base", it's a slightly different idea Yes. The base meaning here alaya, the part of consciousness storing karmic seeds, that has to be transformed....

Re: How to get angry qualitatively?

Namkhai Norbu: Talks in Conway volume 1: "In Tantra, a relative state is not seen as an obstacle, but rather like a means, a tool. For example, in tantra my unpure vision is not an obstacle for me. Rather, it is something that I use to transform the base. There is a saying in tantra:" More firewood...

Yes, it is a kabuki theater.
The only decent person in this whole pack is Tulsi Gabbard IMO.
And this is exactly why she does not have a chance.

Re: Climate Change and Climate Skeptics/Deniers

We are faced with some nasty choices. Fixing this climate issue is not going to be without its winners and losers, unfortunately. It would be nice if we could use this as an opportunity to level economic opportunities, but it won't. If things are as bad as some of the models predict, complaining ab...

Re: Climate Change and Climate Skeptics/Deniers

I suppose there is a way to look at this as a problem of capitalism. I can't buy into that analysis for a few reasons. 1. Practical. There is no way that we are abolishing the capitalist model any time soon. Simply will not happen. 2. Its not just the .1% of humanity. Its every human being on this ...

Re: Climate Change and Climate Skeptics/Deniers

Climate altering impact is just one of the things we need to mitigate. All the crap we're putting into the air, water and ground is killing us, making us develop deformations, making us sick, killing wildlife, etc. Etc. Not to mention deforestation, paving all the ground in sight, over fishing, ove...

Re: Climate Change and Climate Skeptics/Deniers

What views, Simon? What disagreement? Tapurusa never expressed any. He was, by his own admission simply asking about the data. I just would like to know if his data is real. There must be someone who is able to show if they are not (at least I hope so) Why might someone think this is trolling? Well...

If you have questions about his selection of data sets, use a search engine. It took me two second to find other phds explaining Arctic sea ice prior to 1979. Stay on topic. If you want to argue climate science take it to another thread. Any further discuss on climate science will be moved. It took...

Re: Is it worth it to resist your well-deserved bad karma?

What happens in terms of the law of karma when we confront our deserved bad karma? Do we worsen our karma even more in this case?   For example, someone is trying to rob us. He was robbed by us in forgiving lives. And it seems that we should put up with a fair (from the point of view of the law of ...
