Re: TRUCK FUMP

Something not as much talked about in the "Russian Meddling" in our elections, is how they did it. The end result is much scarier than swaying an election. The real story is the use of advanced artificial intelligence to commit state-sponsored information warfare, and if you think Russia are the onl...

Re: Humanity's decline

While the education system, at least in the USA is in pretty bad shape, if not wholly irrelevant at this point, there have been significant strides towards making education accessible, and available to anyone who desires it. You could almost wholly educate yourself online these days, every single to...

Re: Music time



Probably one of my favorite electro-industrial songs(and bands) ever, it's too bad that youtube doesn't have support for hi-fidelity music, or subwoofer support. Music that makes the house go boom and rumble <3

Re: My new neighbor

Hello again everyone.. someone might remember me from a couple years ago. If not, that's ok. I just moved into a new place the beginning of May(almost a month and a half ago). I'm single and the first day I really connected with the women who lives right next to me, these units are veeery close tog...

Re: Losing track of everything in meditation.

I couldn't say what death is like. Maybe no one can. It may be that there is no such thing, at least not the way we think about it. The meditation I'm familiar with involving the lower dan tien is quite similar to my standard sitting practice, which comes straight out of the suttas/surtas on Ānāpān...

Re: Losing track of everything in meditation.

Torpidity It's possible to get some high-quality rest this way however, so I don't want to come down negatively on it. I can occur anywhere during meditation, in a wide variety of psychic or altered states, or simply the normal "consensual state" Sharpen your awareness, it mean you want to go deepe...

Re: Can all beings ever be liberated? The motivation of the bodhisattva.

Can each and every sentient being be liberated? Yes. Will each and every sentient being be liberated? How would an answer to this question lead a person to freedom from suffering? When we ourselves are liberated, all beings are liberated, and it really is true... Non-Duality. Simultaneously, we tak...

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: So, Anthony Bourdain...

In my previous mind-dump post, in the process of writing I had a comment about the ideas informing the confrontation with death and how those would tend to determine one's thoughts, words and actions in response. For whatever reason, I guess I edited that out. In any event, if one assumes a materia...

Re: So, Anthony Bourdain...

My point in bringing this up is that Buddhism, at its inception, was an obsession with the meaninglessness and futility of the world, which tends to bring one, sooner or later, to the face of death. Seems to me, its how that confrontation is handled that distinguishes the yogi from the suicide. Mos...

I think you will, too, and also think Khandro Rinpoche would be a wonderful person to visit even just once.

The kind of thinking behind this thread is pure poison for the thinker. The level of hatred which seems to be acceptable for this guy should really give a practitioner pause for thought. not really. giving in to hatred, and anger is really easy, too easy. In fact it's the normal response, compassio...
