Brief Encounter

I peeped into the past this afternoon,

left the sun’s bright smile for the grey drizzle

of a Winter, gabardine garbed and smoke

soaked. I stood on the station ramp under

the yellow light and watched the misery.

from here, the dreary scene of passive shame

takes a smaller place in the drama now –

the respectable doctor has become

a predator, a manipulative

abuser of power and dreams. The housewife

is angry and trapped, the husband stupid

and complacent. The story is deceit;

a halo is held around the struggle

for virtue, that in the clear crystal light

of our sophistication earns a wry

patronising smile. Now we hug dark lies

that are nurtured in the human struggle

and hover between scorn and sentiment.

REINVENTING THE WORLD AS WE SEE IT, THE DANGER OF CHOOSING POORLY, PLEASE BE CAREFUL OF YOUR OWN NARRATIVE.

Cock an ear please do.

Inventing The World

The World it´s not as it is, but as we see it, so it is, at least to us.

B.A

We live in a World made of images, information, and narratives, collective, and personal, and that we call it Knowledge, or Ignorance for the lack of it, or I would add for the poor quality we choose to feed our minds, and souls with.

We mostly generally, are  easy to be  program by information, that now day has become not a source for Truth, but for convenience, to people who want to control what you should think about particular issues, be this about the drink you prefer to buy, to the way you should interpret the news you watch, or hear.

It’s common for people to judge you in a poor light, or be wary of your political opinions, just by your favorite source of media. Most never questioning their…

Only those who attempt the absurd…..

Love the image
Wondrous in itself
Its wonder redoubled
In its perfection
As accompaniment

HAPPINESS IS REALISING THE PROBLEM

I’ve sent a link to so many folk I decided that if I find it *that* helpful I should really repost it too. so … 🙂

BUDDHA IN THE MUD by Tony Barrs. There are two truths: the real and the seemingly real. Their connection is the negative emotions. On the path of the seemingly real, the emotions imprison us. On the path of the real, the emotions liberate us. There is a secret life to the emotions.

Happiness Is Realising The Problem

We are never unhappy for no reason.
Everything has a cause.

We may be unhappy because we wanted something and didn’t get it.
We may be unhappy because we didn’t want something but got it.
We may be unhappy because we never realised
that we’ve been happy all along.

The problem is all in the mind and, as such,
it never truly existed.

Whatever life presents is our path.
Karma is an excellent teacher.

Whatever occurs,
know that pure awareness is always present.
That is truly wonderful, because it is all we need to know.

When we realise this,
we will be happy with whatever arises.
In this way, we undo the karmic effect.
Everything simplifies.

We are pure awareness.
If this isn’t good enough,
then we will remain unhappy.

Traps

Mindfulbalance

Imagine you are walking in the woods and you see a small dog sitting by a tree. As you approach it, it suddenly lunges at you, teeth bared. You are frightened and angry. But then you notice that one of its legs is caught in a trap. Immediately your mood shifts from anger to concern: You see that the dog’s aggression is coming from a place of vulnerability and pain. This applies to all of us. When we behave in hurtful ways, it is because we are caught in some kind of trap. The more we look through the eyes of wisdom at ourselves and one another, the more we cultivate a compassionate heart.

WHY DO WE REFER TO GOD AS ‘HIM’?

BUDDHA IN THE MUD by Tony Barrs. There are two truths: the real and the seemingly real. Their connection is the negative emotions. On the path of the seemingly real, the emotions imprison us. On the path of the real, the emotions liberate us. There is a secret life to the emotions.

Why Do We Refer To God As Him’?

This is not meant to be funny, politically correct, sexist or anti God. Not at all!
Why was man created in God’s image? Did God have dangly bits?

We have been fed illusion after illusion, obscuring reality for millennia.
God has to be pure consciousness. What else can God be?
We are pure consciousness. What else can we be?

Pure consciousness has neither gender nor agenda.
If God had a purpose, what is it? When we look at the world, whatever plan was envisaged hasn’t worked. Or has it?
Peace on Earth and good will to all ‘men’ ??!

People have claimed to have heard the word of God, declaring that God spoke to them. Why do we believe them? Have they actually said anything that clarifies reality, or do they just add to the story line?

Is that inner voice our inspiration?

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT WE WAKE UP…

If not now then when?

BUDDHA IN THE MUD by Tony Barrs. There are two truths: the real and the seemingly real. Their connection is the negative emotions. On the path of the seemingly real, the emotions imprison us. On the path of the real, the emotions liberate us. There is a secret life to the emotions.

It Is Imperative That We Wake Up…
and recognise the illusions

The DNA of the mind; the genetic information and characteristics – physical or mental – that are passed from one generation to another.

How easily we conform to being manipulated, and then pass this behaviour on to others.

The Milgram experiment shows how people, against their better judgement, obey someone in a white coat who instructs them to inflict electrical shocks on another person. This was a staged experiment using actors; an unsuspecting participant was told to inflict pain on an unseen individual as a ‘punishment’ for an incorrect answer to a question. No pain was actually caused, but the person who pushed the switch did not know this – and despite believing that they were causing pain, people still complied with the commands they were given.

The video below shows how this procedure is applied today with the objective of creating compliance to those in…

We All Need A Feeling Of Success

BUDDHA IN THE MUD by Tony Barrs. There are two truths: the real and the seemingly real. Their connection is the negative emotions. On the path of the seemingly real, the emotions imprison us. On the path of the real, the emotions liberate us. There is a secret life to the emotions.

We All Need A Feeling Of Success

Life has become so diverse that we no longer have time to become an expert, or feel satisfied. We look at the world and it’s confused, and always seems to need an upgrade! We think that we have to start at the bottom and work our way up in order to be successful or to understand something. Not so; we can start at the top and know success in one instant.

In the Dzogchen tradition of spirituality, we are introduced to the ultimate truth, and life becomes fruitful and successful as we now know what it’s all about, and everything we do has a purpose. The ultimate truth isn’t something we have to work at because the ultimate truth is the reality of our very own nature.

Dzogchen is Tibetan for the direct realisation of ultimate reality of empty cognisance. This is not…
