Re: Love Light shine

so if i can not easily say what is me and what is you, there is an intuitive and logical ground for exchanging self and other. no? Yes. Then tears flow. Look into the mirror of mind to discover what is not made, not fabricated, not born and so not coming into being. Just as it was so it is and will...

Re: Love Light shine

I mean, I think absolute Love is simply when someone needs help, and they trust you and ask for help, and you love them, meaning that help or not, what you do is intended to help them feel stable happiness. 'Intention' as spontaneous help for unconditional stable happiness-peace. Bodhichitta. _/\_

Re: Love Light shine

In Buddhism absolute love is equated (?) with the absolute truth, the truth of emptiness. But how does that work in daily life? I mean, I think absolute Love is simply when someone needs help, and they trust you and ask for help, and you love them, meaning that help or not, what you do is intended ...

Re: Why does Gelug school claim emptiness means things exist without self nature?

Oh yes, good reminder, Tsongkhapa. When you know that appearances dispel the extreme of existence, While the extreme of nothingness is eliminated by emptiness,[3] And you also come to know how emptiness arises as cause and effect, Then you will be immune to any view entailing clinging to extremes. h...

Re: Is Mind Fundamental?

Yes. Mind is fundamental for everything and all and all. Its Nature is all inclusive and impossible to divide other than by delusions' pollution, creating the idea of a restricted nature on itself. That is dream. Our mind is the basis of everything, and from our mind everything arises, Samsara and N...

Re: Thich Nhat Hanh - My life is my message

It looked to me that the video and meaning by Thich Nhat Hanh is pointing to the suffering by discrimination. Here another. But it can perhaps seem to contradict the teaching of the precious human life. But I do not think it is. Many teachings seems to contradict, H H said. But each has its particul...

Re: Our Karma or theirs?

I remember one of the 1st expedient lessons I've got from a Zen teacher who said; what happens to you is not you karma but the way you react to it is your karma. For instance if someone hits me in the face is not important but the way I react to it is, in this example karma=habit energy. This is th...

Re: Our Karma or theirs?

It seems there is some pointing to nondual nature. While of course it is impossible to express, because there is no subject-object dichotomy. Since there is me and other there is karma and its’ effects, samsara. At least in nondual equipoise* such experience is lacking. ( *to not call another term t...

There's no enlightened being permeating anything, and there's no child in a war zone, both are your creations.

Re: Our Karma or theirs?

However there is no way, another must be seen as being the cause or being responsible for my action through emotional delusions in interaction. An action with the intention to harm children is not 'my' responsibility. But it is it very much, ( Paramita) in order to do what is possible to stop this h...

Also though isn't it our karma to see people behave in certain ways, to have certain types of people in our environment and to have them treat us however they do...
