Re: Too much spirituo-babble

Ya you are right, I guess the post is just a passing thought. BUt I dont beleive enlightenment is about not judging but rather recognizing the relativity of judgement as a limited perspective. NOthing wrong with judgement in my opinion. I guess this thought is just another reincarnation. Jesus used ...

Too much spirituo-babble

Is anyone else at the point where they read some of these posts and wanna throw up because all of this stuff has been so absorbed that it has become cliche now? Do you ever see some posts or responses and wanna gag? I think this is the point where the zen masters start beating people with sticks. Ju...

Re: Vernon Howard

I think Vernon Howard is one of the most practical teachers around because he has so many practical exercises to use in daily life and his emphasis on snapping mental movies hundreds or thousands of times a day till they come less and less until finally the mind is silent. His website has an entire ...

This too shall pass.

Once in Persia reigned a king, Who upon a signet ring, Carved a maxim strange and wise, When held before his eyes, Gave him counsel at a glance, Fit for every change and chance: Solemn words, and these were they: “EVEN THIS WILL PASS AWAY.” Trains of camel through the sand Brought him gems from Sama...

Re: Sexy thoughts

I meant it does not have to be built up in the first place, there is a whole culture of sexual addiction going on, everywjere you go you will see addicts, frustrated, angry, worn out, why, because they cant get their fix. Now there I agree with you. They are given an addiction and conditioned into ...

Re: Sexy thoughts

I gotta respond Brahman, its a very tricky discussion because again even the way you word it makes it seem like indeed there is something that is need to be released and lust is such a spiritually charged word which already has a negative aspect implied. When you say there is no proof that lust need...

Re: Sexy thoughts

The word celibacy is much a word like sobriety. How can you compare celibacy to sobriety? The desire to have sex occasionally is a healthy, normal desire, pretty much like hunger. Someone without an appetite for food is normally regarded as being unwell and usually is. The Taoists in ancient China ...

Re: Sexy thoughts

Celebacy is hardly our "natural state". We're descending from generation upon generation of sexers. To mentally castrate yourself is perverse. To denounce your sexuality as unnatural or wrong is as bad as becoming completely addicted to it (two sides, same coin). It's like anorexia of the gonads. i...

Re: Sexy thoughts

lol it doest take the buddha to show that testicles can be removed, Lorena Bobbit can teach that, the buddha taught that sexual desire can be dropped. I think repression happens when one is taught by the outsie that sexuality is bad and then sexuality arises and there is conflict and supression but ...
