Re: Bad deeds with good intention

Maybe you're right. I'm not wise at all, but understanding emptiness and impermanence won't bring you the answer, how palm oil is made or how big is the suffering behind the stuff you buy. Many wise lamas in the USA aren't vegans. The suffering of animals in factory farms is huge. Often in many par...

Re: My sister and I

You can talk in a peaceful moment and ask her how you can avoid to make her upset. Therefore talk with her ( not directly on that very moment she is upset) for the welfare of both, in a way: how can I help you, or how can we fix that together? In a calm moment you can as well tell her it is difficul...

A drop in the ocean thinking it is an isle in the midst of all in empty embracing ocean. A hurry wave arriving before others on the beach, where then dissolving in the sand. A breath freed in open sky, no way to divide from other released ones and get it back. In practice is not one not two not thre...

Re: Soul Integration

this multiplicity refers precisely to no-self. A buddha is just as much at home with beggars as with kings and appears simultaneously to as many beings as needed.

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

There are tests by international interactive supports running right now with molecules ( antiviral aim) and the check on the reaction of the body on the virus. Whatever will be the result; there is more and more insight into the virus, anyway. Meanwhile we have no idea who is positive and who not. A...

Re: Turning the Light Around?

Yes and this of course means not there is the Buddha (master) "in" the sun of the essential nature while there are others like children making s...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Yes, you are right.
I am asking for the paramedical and medical teams, who are testing, not for people in the street. Doctors are asking those of construction workers. These are also limited.

I was wondering somewhere people already helped regarding this shortage.

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Everywhere in the world are scientists working on a possible medicine what can stop the grow of the virus. Belgium, Leuven is starting with 15000 possible useful molecules coming from California. They can work nonstop, 24 hours on 24 because robots are doing the job. In that way, probably in a few w...

White Lotus, Tom, your artworks are telling the utterly craziness of the seriousness of self, thinking to going to fix it. :thanks: Self learns there is no self while seeing other as real = self.

Re: Dukkha and pure mathematics.

I largely agree with Malcolm. Dito. The creativity can be used in investigations, for example in the medical, technical research for welfare of all. It will not have direct value on purifying view/awakening, since knowledge is not to know all things but the nature of all things. Then counting What?
