watch the ripples change their size but never leave the stream of warm impermanence


If you don’t get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don’t want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can’t hold on to it forever.
Your mind is your predicament.
It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death.
But change is a law, and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.

Essentials

I am finding that in order to get to the answers I seek in life, asking the question with openness is essential (aka, asking the right question).
So is sitting back and observing who is doing the questioning (without attachment to the question let alone the answer – or the “questioner” let alone the “answerer”)
And in the end it is “being”, aka “grace” (aka love) which has its ¬†essential nature in everything.

But being human – it begins with the question, because that’s what we do. . .

It is non-attachment that carries us forward in the process

It ends with being, because that’s who we are . . .

You can’t always get what you want, but you may find you get what you need

Is synthetic happiness equal to happiness you stumble upon? ¬†Science seems to think so. Being with what “is” appears to be able to make us happy. ¬† That’s why advertising to Zen monks isn’t necessarily profitable . . .
