Re: TRUCK FUMP

Why does it always seem to be an either-or scenario? Either the hopeless Dems who lost the election through rigging the primaries and offering a very flawed candidate or the Russian meddling did it? It is almost certainly both. I don't get why you argue so vehemently against the latter, JD, have yo...

Re: original as misnomer

I often come across references to Original Mind, Nature, etc.in discussions of Buddhism (especially Zen). However, i don't see a lot of intellectual rigor in these discussions; if we break things down, Original is defined as 'inherent' or sometimes indicates a temporal reference, i.e. like a child....

Re: TRUCK FUMP

The first thing for me s that neither Clinton, nor Obama, nor Trump, nor Bush, etc. plays for the same "team" that most of us do, and pretending that they do is a kind of insanity, from my perspective. We live in an oligarchy with an ever widening gap between haves and have-nots (and thus access to ...

Re: TRUCK FUMP

Comey swung our election imo with his breathtakingly idiotic* release of damning(-sounding) anti-Clinton info just a few days before the election. He tried to do penance with his nasty book and recent public anti-Trump interviews, but I think The Apocalypso is largely on him. Stupid stupid mistake,...

Re: wrathful visualization

If you want a book that requires no empowerment, relationship to a teacher, etc. Lama Tsultrim Allione wrote Feeding Your Demons, which is basically a "psychological" practice based on Chod. If you are wanting to simply heal old wounds, transform emotions etc. without actually delving into this sort...

Re: My new neighbor

You don't even know if they have an "arrangement"...the advice to mind your own business seems good. People have the right to mess up their lives. It'd be different I suppose if this person was someone close to you, who you regularly had deep conversations with. In this situation though, I don't see...

Re: TRUCK FUMP

Don't talk to me that way, America loves a dictator and dictatorships it seems... If you can't answer the actual questions I posed, then we are done...it appears you can't. I asked if you had any evidence that Russian online farting around swung the election, none of these articles address that. So...

Re: TRUCK FUMP

So like you think the whole Russian meddling on a massive scale is like some conspiracy theory...oki doke. Excuse me, pony up the reams of evidence you supposedly have of widespread Russian meddling swinging the election, or stop talking about it as if you have evidence of it. i know i know resorti...

Re: TRUCK FUMP

If you think russia's online fake news had no effect...well....thats your choice...the experiment was tried and proven... Really, where was it "proven"? And I didn't say it had no effect, I just think the effect is pretty marginal in comparison to things like HRC being a terrible candidate, the DNC...

Re: TRUCK FUMP

This is the first time that the likes of russia actually could derail internal american politics on a scale that rivals what politicians can do with political party funding . What do you think Russia derailed exactly? Firstly, HRC won the popular vote, second, the Democrats made a huge blunder in t...

Re: Have you tried Holotropic Breathwork?

If I recall correctly, our conflict started with my saying "you can't know...", or something like that, meaning that if no research has been done you can't make a, I'll say reasonable, conclusion. We may be just going along with whatever the prevailing narrative is, in this case. I understand if yo...

Re: Have you tried Holotropic Breathwork?

Lots of subjects like this don't have studies or organized collections of hard data available . If you are lucky enough to research a subject that does have studies, meta studies, and hard data, then you are well set. If that stuff does not exist, you are forced to draw conclusions using what evide...

Yeh, insulting other ones teachers and also here the members in public that should always be avoided, out of respect, so i have learned that by the years. But sometimes it happens.

Sloppy reasoning, Greg. In a messy world, sometimes we have to take sides when neither one are the good ones.. I know I am being the Devil's advocate but you know what, truth is not negotiable in my book. We can't afford to play roughshod with it, because too many already do. The end does not justi...

It's not just the liberals. It's pretty much the entire intelligence community. But of course they are just a bunch of lying arseholes.

Re: TRUCK FUMP

In that context, clearly seelling the means of killing is wrong, but making a direct connection to a specific incident is pushing it a bit. I guess it is similar to the gun sales to those who carry out massacres in the US. Bad karma for sure, and I would like to think they share in the vipaka from ...

Re: Dzogchen and Mahamudra: differences and similarities

I am still not clear on Yongdzin's Rinpoche's opinion on this matter. The quotes given so far are ambiguous, and I do not have a grip on how Bonpo teachers contextualize "lower" teachings, nor has any real explanation been given. I don't think that pithy explanations like those given so far do much ...
