Someone once told me: one should have no family. Fellow seekers of dharma are your family.
A wise man once said to me, "Ain't nothin' to it but to do it." I suspect that he may have been talking about practice on the path to awakening.

Are we talking about Fútbol or Football? :tongue:
The line would only get crossed (imo) if one started trashing your place in anger, engaging in violence, flipping out, etc.
Could an exception be made in the case of the former sport on account of tradition?

Re: The Fastest Growing Religion In Birmingham Revealed

There were those who wanted to stay out of WWII. Personally, I don't know how I would have felt if I were alive then. I'd probably be interned. *flashback to alternate timeline* Queequeg travels back in time and arrives in pre-WWII America. Overtaken by culture shock, he unsuccessfully attempts to ...

Re: The Fastest Growing Religion In Birmingham Revealed

Life of the Sramana is radical. Takes really true courage. To walk away from everything you are attached to... and drop out. Those are brave men and women. Undoubtedly. Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. ...But suppose it was WWII that American youths had chosen to drop out of—some kind of Beatnikish revo...

Well...

People with a decent hold over their own minds can be remarkably resilient and defiant. Even fearless... Not that I want to get targeted by cointelpro.

Re: The Fastest Growing Religion In Birmingham Revealed

People need to be shown how to get into their minds. See what is there. I'm pretty confident the mindfulness craze is an expression of the impulse to look in. That yoke is off. People are just getting used to the freedom to look in. For centuries they were warned against it. Told that the good stuf...

Re: The Fastest Growing Religion In Birmingham Revealed

Just because the yoke of the Church is thrown off doesn't mean the mind will blossom. Now its just a poor mind set adrift. That's the West for you. Impoverished life of the mind adrift, grasping at whatever seems solid, which for the best of them becomes some sort of materialism. Its a lament. Barb...

Re: Chinese Scientists Have Put Human Brain Genes In Monkeys

honestly this is a nightmare scenario. It's similar to the recent story of a maverick Chinese scientist who claimed to have genetically altered an infant female. These people are literally messing with genomes. It's what Frankenstein was about, only a lot more real, and a lot scarier. They're going...

Re: Readability of Usernames

Hi all, so there are some users with usernames in Asian characters, which is perfectly fine, but, being unable to read these characters, - I don't know how to address you, (of course I can copy&paste your name, but I still have a feeling I don't know your name) Is the cut and paste option so bad?

Re: time traveling?

In astrophysics time is not separate from space, hence the term Space-time. Dropping out words will change the meaning. I think what you're refering to is ATrophysics :quoteunquote: (think high entropy). Many simulations have resulted in desertification, if you catch my drift. :spy: Djinn emerged f...
