mind needs some BIOS update

Postby effort » Sun Feb 21, 2010 3:28 pm

i bet this is a software bug!!

While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.now Draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction and there's nothing you can do about it.

Wow thats weird.

:anjali:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

I done it!

I can also pat my head while rubbing my tummy at the same time.


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Yeah, I can do that. Maybe I've got an older version without this error. Sometimes not updating has it's good points.

It depends how you draw your number 6, do you start at the top and spiral in or start at the center and spiral to the top?
Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things

I can do it! I thought I couldn't but I can. :popcorn:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)
