Nakedness

Postby Malcolm » Fri Jun 08, 2012 4:26 pm

The easiest thing in the world to do is walk naked, and the hardest. We have to take off the clothes we put on in which to admire ourselves. If we don't, then we never see the truth of ourselves. We are naked to others even if we think we are clothed.

Free of hope and fear, relax.
Human life spent in
a state of great spaciousness is enjoyable.

I might have to change all my materials to warn for X-rated content... :thinking:

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget." –Arundhati Roy

Is that a quote from trungpa?
I don't know where we are going but it will be nice when we get there

Plants are sentient, now nakedness is good; are you becoming a Jain? :tongue:

I like clothes, it keeps you warm, keeps body parts from flopping up and down, it's more sanitary, and it looks nice.

Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

Nakedness allows me to look down on the unemployed. LOL :)

Unlike other people, who may be compassionate, mirrors tell the truth.

If we hold up a mirror to our minds it is seldom a pretty sight.

A little off topic, but Jetsun Shuksep, Chonyid Wangmo, was ordered to walk around the Bar-khor in Lhasa completely naked which she did. Obviously, Her Teacher took no prisoners.

A bodhisattva does not become weary of evil beings nor does he commit the error of bringing forth thoughts inclined to reject them and cast them aside. Avatamsaka Sutra, ch. 25
