Re: Faith Restored, stories of kindness to animals

"we hear think globally, act locally... don't! if you think globally you become filled with gloom. But if you take a little piece of this whole picture, my piece/our peace- this is what I can do here. I'm making a difference and hey, wow! they're making a difference over there and so are they.

Re: Is Nostalgia and Enjoying Happy Memories Okay in Buddhism?

I would liken (conditioned) joy to the subject of grief , or in other words having a great desire to relive a past event. Aren't many of our habits grounded in this idea, where our experiences often fall short of our expectations? The initial excitement- the memory to relive or resurrect- turns to a...

Re: Is Nostalgia and Enjoying Happy Memories Okay in Buddhism?

We can become > attached to past memories and live in the past so that they become the equivalent of a 'ball and chain' on our leg stifling progress and harming us mentally. In all likelihood you will have many happy days to come, and they will one day also be happy memories. At least in that respec...

Re: Buddhist Morality

Morality is discarded when it becomes inconvenient? Another way of saying this is that when you've lost everything bargaining power goes out the window. One of my past experience dealing with thousands of households, was that the poorest usually had tons of stuff to give unconditionally, and i would...

Re: Hello i am new here

Mingyur Rinpoche has spoken about panic being his best teacher. He concentrate on the feeling- accepting it- and his awareness grew until one day it disappeared.

Favorite sound is wind in trees and rain.

Re: Relationships with non-Buddhist friends

Buddha cautioned against extremes. For example: being a hermit living on cave water and lichen. But also tending for the sick and needy is a courageous pursuit involving commitment and skillful mean. Of course that still doesn't address the issue of finding balance. Personally I do easy stuff like u...

Re: Memories that link dreams but not when awake.

AFIAK, your sense impressions are very unreliable. While you're "awake", you have a circuit breaker so that your sub-concious mind isn't beaming through your eyeballs all the time; more-so daydreaming while you're operating a vehicle. During sleepy time there's a feedback mechanism going. I'll use a...

Re: PERSONAL OPINIONS: Can people who don't practice buddhism enlighten

Have you heard of the saying: 'the map is not the territory?' When I follow a recipe for the first time, the results aren't great. That's where practice comes in. Keep doing the same thing- or thereabouts. For example, I gave some directions to this couple a while back. The man was more interested i...

It is very sad that Whitney di...
