Well, I like this kind of rambling..."A treasure for this life, indeed. I find it interesting to consider how many of us have in fact in past lives come into contact with these teachings. The teachings being there again, for the mind again to work with. I find this a wonderful thought. Comforting, yet also a spur to do better this time, to use it better. "
Some take it as outside agent force of Buddha whatever. Some take it as mind itself as agent of source. Some take it as the innate nature of reality itself reaching out grasping out, to have us understand, as all is essentially conscious understanding.
I tend towards the third. My life seems impossible for me to attach to extreams. Too wound up in thought or some things, and I actually get physcially disabled. So my attention is mandated. Situations as well...to attached they dissolve before me. Things just leading me it seems I have not a bit of choice in this thing. Circumstances always leading in a certain way....what's a mother to do
So I must consider these things, it is impossible not to. Comforting yet different as well...Flying through air.... off a cliff perhaps........ for years and years time, no ground, no ceiling, just on and on. The normal of things left far far behind.
So that's another ramble...
I for one am a sucker for those kind of rambles...love them I do....
Thanks for the memory MYOM....I feel totally comforted right about now.
Glad to see a mahamudra thread on this board...real glad.
"This order considers that progress can be achieved more rapidly during a single month of self-transformation through terrifying conditions in rough terrain and in "the abode of harmful forces" than through meditating for a period of three years in towns and monasteries"....Takpo Tashi Namgyal.
