You Never Did Not Exist

Postby kerby » Mon Oct 24, 2011 8:32 am

In the land encircled by snow mountains
You are the source of all happiness and good;
All powerful Chenrezig, Tenzin Gyatso,
Please remain until samsara ends.

Good to know I suppose. I wonder how useful it is. Knowing I never did not exist is just another experience.
I fled Him, down the nights and down the days; I fled Him, down the arches of the years; I fled Him, down the labyrinthine ways, Of my own mind; and in the mist of tears, I hid from Him, and under running laughter. Up vistaed hopes I sped; And shot, precipitated, Adown Titanic glooms of chasmèd fears, From those strong Feet that followed, followed after. But with unhurrying chase, And unperturbèd pace, Deliberate speed, majestic instancy, They beat - and a Voice beat - More instant than the Feet - ‘All things betray thee, who betrayest Me.’

That's fantastic. I love Rob Thurman.

I don't know if I trust his take on anything anymore after I saw him repeatedly say that Vedanta and Buddhism were the same thing in different words. :shrug: He really made a point to get this message across in his lecture with Deepak Chopra.

ALTHOUGH, I just watched it and I really liked this video.
