34-Truth the great Liberator ,exist only in the Now,of each person's thoughts.What is my truth might not be your truth in this instant,but eventually ,the real truth shall prevail.Truth is also the capacity to think,say act,in Mindfulness in a Now.
Not everyone can do that. It depends on the spiritual evolution of said individual.

35-Sentient beings,can be carriers of karmas,so that is why,I live in the country,and all we see is dead deers inpick-ups.That is why,i cannot even see a domestic dog or cat.All sentient beings should live their lives free.A golden cage is still a cage
a withdrawal of the primary right of all living beings.FREEDOM.
I will not make friends with this comment.I understand people that are lonely and have pets.Still all these sentient beings,
should be free,to suffer or be happy in nature,where the Universe
intended them to be.

36-I have so much "stuff" to share,but I do not want to invade the Buddhism section.What Lisa and I ,(speaking for her), here,
is to let the visitors ,members to digest what is actually existing.The second book I bought by TNH,is much simpler in it's writing.It is a book that I recommend to people that have a basic knowledge on Buddhism.Just a suggestion,Lisa is the Editor,
myself just one of her students.
The name of the Book is The Miracle of Mindfulness.

37-just received this from my Bhikkhu in Sri-Lanka;
The five ways of removing irritating annoyance:
Bhikkhus, there are these five ways of removing annoyance, by which any
irritation can be entirely removed by a Bhikkhu, when it arises in him.
What are these five ways?
1: Friendliness can be maintained towards an irritating person or state..
2: Understanding can be undertaken towards an irritating person or state..
3: On-looking Equanimity can be kept towards an irritating person or state..
4: One can forget and ignore the irritating person, mental or physical state..
5: Ownership of Kamma of the irritating person can be reflected upon thus:
This good person is owner of his actions, inherit the result his actions, is
indeed born of his actions and only he is responsible for his actions be they
good or bad. This too is how annoyance with the irksome can be instantly
removed. These are the five ways of removing annoyance, and by which any
irritation can be entirely removed in a friend, exactly when it arises...
Anguttara Nikāya V 161

38-Buddhas are all those countless persons who have obtained enlightenment,then many have sat on the very spot I sit on nowTNH
Sitting on the same spot as a Buddha gives rise to happiness and sitting in mindfulness means itself to have become a Buddha.The poet Ngu-yen Cong Tru experienced the same thing when he sat dowm on a certain spot,and suddenly saw others had sat on the same spot countless ages ago,and how in ages to come others would also come to sit there:

On the same spot I sit today
Others came,in ages past,to sit.
One thousand years ,still others will come.
Who is the singer ,who is the listener?
That spot and the minutes he spent there became a link in eternal reality.


loong's humble comment:never forget that our presence on this blue planet ,is just the continuation of hundreds,thousands,
that came before us,and after us.We just are a continuum of Karmas
all intertwined in the universe,each one part of the other,like the grains of sand on a beach

40-Mindfulness is the Miracle,by which,we master,and restore ourselves.

WHenever your Mind becomes scattered,use your breath as the means to take hold
On your mind again
