Re: Cayenne Tea

I used to do this regularly for a while. Then I forgot about it... so many remedies!

I did 2-3 oz water with 1/4 to 1 tea cayenne ... the quantity doesn't seem to matter for taste. I added a dab of butter or ghee and a little salt. yes, be aware if heat is ok for you.

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

let's see it for what it is.... there is no public debate tho it may seem so. It comes down to the $$ bribes for our politicians. Law abiding gun owners are not the problem. That's what every pro-gun person argues...guns don't kill people, people kill people etc. Hence we shouldn't regulate or ban ...

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

ofc, gun control

Violence reaps violence.... sad to say that karma is coming back to the USA. War and killing in the name of empire returns to us/US. The USA was founded on violent and is in danger of ending on violence.

Re: Psoriasis

inflammation is usually caused by stagnant lymphatics.... diet of fruits and veggies to address cause.... best is fruits alone til it clears, a few veggies, salad for lunch if needed. herbals will help, need good kidney and adrenal energy

Re: Zen Space Forum down hard?

The members only divided forum was discussed at ZFI. Personally, I'm not in favor of it. It's a big solution for a small problem.... purity is not a solution in my mind.... it creates division and perhaps a certain addiction to perfection. Zen is full of stories of a simple cook or gardener becoming...

Re: How do I go deeper into Zen practice?

yes, wisdom is inherent. It needs no cultivation tho it may appear so. Wisdom, like all dharmas, arises naturally like boxes and lids.

As I hear it, the highest teaching in zen is.... "make a response".

The teaching is upside-down: to go deeper, make a response (ofc, this is not about will)

Re: Weed is now legal in California

It never agreed with me, but up here on the Russian River in Northern CA, it's a staple as it is farther to the north. I've met ppl who grow small amounts to pay the rent when jobs are scarce. Nothing is hidden .... Neighbors know neighbors who grow. Far worse, there is meth, no secret where it is.....
