Love is action

Or non-action. Not reaction.

How to think clearly

Don't try to think. Observe. Be aware without judging.

To know sorrow

is to be free from it. You won't understand sorrow if you keep escaping from it. Don't do anything about it. Don't push it away. Just be aware. How does it feel?
Happy are those who grieve for they will love better and live longer.

Love is

A cup of coffie in the morning. And some pressure. Or lots of it.

To teach is to learn

To learn is to be both teacher and student. The teacher and student are one.

Thus spake the crow ...

i'm not a thief!
i don't want to take away your
child
i want to give away to him/her whatever i
have;

i am a teacher!

Life is now

Thoughts come and go
and they aren't real.
There's something beyond.
Life is here and now.

The past is sorrow
and the sorrow has passed.
There's freedom today
and there's no tomorrow.

Compassion is love. Understanding is action.

I think we worry too much about what other people think of us

Is self-centeredness the cause of fear?

Or is fear the cause of pride, vanity, envy, greed, jealousy, anger, violence, etc, etc, etc?

There is fear of being lonely

Of being isolated. Has one ever felt it? One probably never has because one keeps surrounding oneself with people, gods, and idols, and one keeps conforming.

You are not

I am.

Looking, looking, looking

I do not know what love is

Is there such a thing called love?

Love at times is mistaken

Could it be? What is love to you?

Is sorrow sorrow?

The Sorrow of escaping from sorrow

Thru beliefs, traditions, activities, ambitions, achievements, relationships, food, drinks, love, sex, drugs, and rock and roll.

The extraordinary thing called sorrow

What is behind sorrow? And beyond it? To run away from sorrow is to live in sorrow. I want to know what sorrow is. I want to know how it feels. To observe it without motive.

Do we hurt those we love most?

The sorrow of losing

So much sorrow, so much self-pity. So many distractions. To live with sorrow without escaping is to be free from it.

Sitting up

Keeping your back straight while sitting is one of the better forms of meditation. Just be aware of your posture from time to time. Throwing your shoulders back a bit more.

Living

To understand sorrow is to be free from it.

What is sorrow?

How does it feel? You cannot understand sorrow if you keep avoiding or escaping from it.

Love inspite of

What is the greatest thing
you can experience?
Nothingness?
Beyond words and thoughts.
Inspite of.
Just be aware.
Nothing else.
We are divided.
That's all we know.

Just be yourself. The son of man is humble.

How to be enlightened

Don't be enlightened!

How to overcome fear

Don't strive. Let it be.

So many fears, so many escapes.

The greatest thing

Faith fights. Hope ignites. Love unites.

Ignorance

"Nietzsche was stupid and abnormal."

-- Leo Tolstoy
