What do you mean by measurement of our energy towards purity/emptiness? What energy is that?
CSEe wrote:Knowledge is only tiny part of awareness as in awareness there are compassion / desire / emotions /suffering / determination etc . All these is our life and in buddha all these is pollutant .
Not intentionally trying to pick on the little things but, I'm trying to understand what you mean by awareness. I think in buddha, compassion is a gem not in pollutant.
I do get this feeling that your awareness got something to do with some innate realisation where you wake up to something different. If it is so, I think it would be better to use the term realisation. But from what I believe this realisation is the result of firm cultivation/meditation just like how The Buddha did. (Maybe some of our Dharma friends can share some tips on that?)
we have to understand all our awareness ( suffering / desire / emotion / compassion ) to be awake , to be pure and free of all pollutant and to be Buddha-the final destination of all .
Partially understood. To realise the ultimate natue of reality would allow us to be more awake, or in your words. A higher level of "awareness".
We grow by our awareness in Buddha not age or knowledge . In gaining more awareness we must born / survive / die to understand all these pollutant , to be more awake and pure .
In gaining awareness , we must under-go purification process to be pure and death / birth / survival is part of that process .
To undergo purification process, it is not as simple as birth/death and survival. You believe in karma right? To be purified in my opinion is to rid of negative karma, which are also known as bad intentions and deeds, we need to be free from that. We can purify ourselves further by doing good deeds, practicing compassion, helping others, having good intentions. The next higher step would be to cultivate, to meditate, to tame the monkey mind so that we can be in more control of our thoughts. Or even meditate on emptiness to reach higher "awareness" or realisations. This is my own humble and limited understanding of the Dharma. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Where did you get the term emptiness from? Is it from Buddhism like what the Buddhist schools are teaching now? If so, it would be better to read up on emptiness to better understand it. I know you don't like reading but I'm sure you got the term of emptiness and a slight understanding of it from reading some books somewhere, if I'm not wrong. Maybe our dharma friends who have a better understanding can share with us here. Please do.
To highlight one misconception about emptiness is that emptiness is not nothingness, emptiness is devoid of inherent existence.
