To all or none,

All of us make discoveries that we would like to share with someone,these discoveries are not long enough to make a new topic.So I thought,why not make a place where new findings in
buddhism are made and shared.

1- We suffer because we do not have enough compassion.
2-The moment we have a lot of compassion ,there is no suffering anymore.
3-Kshanti Paramita( perfections) is the capacity of enbracing everyone,everything,you do not exclude anyone.
4-We have to use our free will to organise our life.
5- Living Mindfully, helping to build brotherhood/sisterhood,
becomes a refuge for others,this brings you a lot of Joy,a lot of happiness.That is it for today.

What a great idea Loong. For myself, I would add on to #2 to say that compassion and self-compassion go together. As we develop compassion for others, we also develop compassion for ourselves. Whatever we cannot feel compassion for in others, is usually something in ourselves that we also have difficulty accepting. So accepting ourselves and accepting others go hand in hand, and compassion for ourselves and compassion for others do too. This is something I have come back to over and over in my own lessons on the path.

To all or none,
7- Lisa's comment
8-How many holy words you say,how many acts you speak of .
They are worthless if you do not act on them.
9-Renounce violence and practice Compassion.
10- The 4 elements of true love are: Maitri/Metta/loving kindness
Karuna Compassion.Mudita/Joy,and upekshm-Equanimity.
11- If you are inhabited by the energy of Mindfulness You are
acting like a Buddha, you are speaking like a Buddha,you are
thinking like a Buddha.
That is Buddhahood inside of you ,that is something you can
experience.IT IS not a theory.

12_During the forthy-five years of his ministry'the Bhuddha always tried to help other
people to wake up'to be mindful.

He always thaught,that the path to of Mindfulness'concentation,and insight is
the path of liberation'the path to Happiness.

That's great about your tablet Loong. Sorry I have not been here, we had guests this weekend. I wanted to comment on your statement about Buddhahood being inside of us, not a theory. To me this is one of the most important insights, that I return to over and over to on my path. There are so many Buddhist sutras, teachings, books, and practices. We can easily get caught up in the intellectual debate of them. And I actually love to discuss and write about Buddhist teaching and ideas. But in the end, the path is about our own realization of truth, and what aids that. That is all that matters.

Loong, I don't believe that any within my family, with the exception of myself, have ever had any dealings with the teachings of Buddhism. When I look at yours and Lisas writings however I find a such similarities between us that it makes me wonder if somehow they came from the same origin. I know that we were very familiar with ancient Egyptian mysticism and the Druidic cultures but not anything from the orient. Maybe you or Lisa could shed some light on this???? dave

To Ancientflaxman,

Dear Dave,I know nothing of the ancient Egyptian culture and spirituality.I hope you beleive in re-birth.In re-bith .many hundred lives could have been passed on to the Orient,where
Sages ,Sadhus,Buddhists etc from their past karmas could have been inspired by the Egyptians.Nothing is gained ,nothing is lost.

Also,South American Mayans wore the same hats as the Tibetans.

How many thousands of miles apart is that?

I am simply a buddhist ,a very simple one.What I wrote ,is the only way or connection I can see.

With deep Respect

Loong, I believe totally in rebirth, also in the continual rejuvenation of the mind. We have never believed in death other than to say that the end of a thing is simply a beginning.

My very good friend is a Buddhist Shaolin Kungfu instructor who one time saved my life. After the rest of my elders had moved on I felt very isolated. He showed me an acceptance and kindness that helped to restore my life at a time when I was very vulnerable.

I appreciate your teaching abilities Loong. They are a vehicle for healing. Thank you! _/\_ dave
