Some basics if anyone would like to look.
Words exist because of meaning; once you've gotten the meaning, you can forget the words. Where can I find a man who has forgotten words so I can have a word with him?

Friends


Before I get accused of being a bigot or prejudice or racist or whatever (i can tell its coming) I just want to make it clear that I am not. I dont hate muslims and I dont hate the religious in general. To me all humans are equal, the reason that I stress these points above is because such evil views cannot go uncriticised, unmentioned and cannot be hidden away. The evil doctrines that are part of Islam (whatever percentage you want to assign them) need to be condemned otherwise we could end up being condemned by them. I recognise moderate muslims and, although I find religious faith irrational, i have no major problem with them. Hopefully by bringing these things up and challenging them more and more there will be more moderate muslims in the world by making them address these issues in a more critical way (apologies for over use of "more")

Vision is Mind
Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union
Union is Great Bliss

'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -
