@ShaunBartone That's true too. And, as I read it, also perhaps the image of ourselves that others create for us, but that isn't us. Same but different?
This is where therapy and magic come in.

Who's Suffering?#2 Full Exegesis

@voidspace Yes, I understand.
Some teachers are good but many are not so good, no matter what label they give themselves, may it be etc. The label does not mean something is good. It might just mean that they want to sell you something.

Reading the Practice Group Manual from compassionatelistening.org/pra they always write "Compassionate Listening™"

Seriously? You make a trademark out of "compassionate listening" as if it would be a brand or something? This is so wrong. 🤷‍♂️ 🙁

Whose 3 Poisons? 

Shaunyata boosted

An important thing I learned from Thich Nhat Hanh: community is way to magnify the awareness and healing energy. In a true people with (hopefully) the right aspirations come together creating a field of compassion and loving kindness which lifts everyone up.

Here are my current daily vows:

Today I vow

- to have compassion with everyone I meet
- to listen with compassion to every word that is spoken
- to consider every person I meet as a part of myself
- not to create separation through thoughts of objectification
- to meditate on the One Mind and to consider that all is the One Mind and that I'm not separate from the One Mind

Straight Pride commemorates the Battle of Drywall, the first time a straight man punched drywall because he was mad about something.

So I'm pretty much back to normal. The "Kensho" experience didn't last as I thought it would at first. It was beautiful. This direct knowledge that I'm united to the One Mind and that there's nothing but the One Mind. I clearly realized that there's nothing to seek for and that there is no deficiency.
But it is not the same now. It's just a memory and not the direct understanding as before. I guess the path goes on then. 😄

Declaring a Buddhist Spring: 2020 

Shaunyata boosted

I had a problematic day. My voice started to act up (some pain in the throat) when singing and it really got me into a frenzy. I could almost not calm down. I imagined all sorts of worst case scenarios. So this was (or still is) on one end.
And on the other end, I think I have realized today that everything has Buddha nature.
It couldn't be more weird. Some kind of awakening paired with fears about losing my ability to sing 🤷‍♂️ 🤨

The teaching of Confucius is so strange to me. I can't even listen to the first chapter of the Analects without getting totally bored and somewhat indignant towards the sternness of the guy. It seems like he is the total opposite of Laozi and the principles of the Way. How is it even possible that the Chinese adopted the instructions of such an unforgiving moralist as their main philosophy? And how can they reconcile it with Taoism?
