Love it Looong, the Dhammapada is probably my favorite sutra. I think The Thousands is my favorite passage:

"Better than a thousand hollow words
Is one word that brings peace.

Better than a thousand hollow verses
Is one verse that brings peace.

Better than a thousand hollow lines
Is one line of the law, bringing peace.

It is better to conquer yourself
Than to win a thousand battles.

Then the victory is yours."

But you got me thinking, which verse do I think best explains me and my relationship to Buddhism? I will think on that...

To all or none,

Again what my buddhism is,it is the energy,the silent power within,the capacity to live a mindful life.All my life,actions ,non-actions,thoughts,silence of the Mind,everything is filled with Mindfullness,living Now.

To all or none,
Being able to accept,critism,nice comments,needs a certain amount of detachment,
A bit. Of humility,,and the comprehension,of others way of seeing you.

To all or none,

Open mindedness is necessary to live fully Buddhism.There are lots of questions ,unanswered,maybe later maybe never.
If one decides fully to engage on this path ,one shall often stop and think ,realise, understand ,and live it.

To all or none,

Been off a few days.Not off as in not feeling well,but off in my
constant search and research on Buddhism.
One must stop ,breathe 3 times with half a smile on.Mindfulness
returns instantly.My eyes are filling with tears as I write.

The maze of Buddhism, the choices to be made, the true understanding of the meaning of even the simplest text,takes me in another Realm.I am as I write like a pool ,montionless,emotionless,ah that is where the 2 tears came from:)I am at the same time listening to a mantra that lasts
over one hour. [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D58pigO5Dig[url] May your inside Buddhahood bloom

to all or none,

When I started my journey in Buddhism,without knowing better,
my lineage was Theravada.I am now getting deeper into Mahayana.

In Theravada ,there are no prayers no music, no songs.Mahayana
does.There are Mantras ,prayers.and semi gods.

Please never forget that for me :all is of the MIND:FIRST:

I have decided to do my gallery of demi gods, people that all are
enlightened,that I can pray if I want to.

So here is my Gallery:

Martin luther King:purety,compassion for his slavers.If you have
not listened lately to:I have seen thePromised
Land in which he states,I WILL NOT ENTER WITH
YOU,knowing that he would die .Total sacrifice
for his followers.

Buddha : What to say about such a man that for 49 years walked
to spread the Dharma to one and all ,including me 2700
years later.Made the word Compassion,alive again.
HH Dalai-Lama:Enlightened also,sacrificing his life ,to try to
save his people from annihilation from the chinese.
A model of Compassion and a great teacher.

JESUS; Enlightened,He too sacrificed his public life ,to help
Change the ways of thinking,the jews had.Another one
that died trying to do good.

As you can see ,I chose my protectors very well.Encircled by a group like this i am constantly fed ,with Compassion,Loving Kindness HONOR ,Purity,Mindfulness.Helping others.

You will not find an article on such an action in Buddhist texts
but isn't this :What my Buddhism is all about:

May you protect yourselves too.

To all or none.
I am planning a 'SOIREE' evening,in my village called :a 2600 year old new phylosophy.
I am well known in my village for work I did 23 years ago on spirituality for 8 years.
So as not to scare everyone, the word Buddhism will be restrained to it's minimum.It will be part presentation ,and I hope a lot of questions,there shall be I hope a good flux.
living in the country,you don't stir the wasp nest too hard.

I have not had a project in 2 years/I beleive this might be a good one for me.Everytime I meet people ,they ask where are you ?
So I am going to show myself up.

The main thing is costs?It is a project and in this Now seems fine.Kept me up part of the nite.

To all or none,

Everyday ,I meet other persons of a certain age,explained my plan.Should have seen their reaction.oufff.ESpecially the eldest
You won't make me change my religion etc.Turmoil.

What I want is a peaceful exchange ,peaceful dialog.The woman said the room will empty in 10 minutes.
Told her ,that I would be in front and the door in the back for those who desire to leave.
But you should have seen the energy flying around.

Not very encouraging.Not one to let go so easily,tought of doing
a "soiree" on Buddhism" plain and simple.So if I get 10 persons ,I will get 10 persons interested,at least.
Today being 1h10 minutes ,I will go see for adds in the local newspaper,and a locale during the day .This a project.

Buddha meditated 7 years to obtain his goal.
