62- In buddhism for the leities there are 5 precepts .One is to
never lie.


TRUTH always TRIUMPHS!
from Bhikkhu Samahita PLUS 2 days ago
Truthful Honesty is the 7th Mental Perfection. Like the moon remains in its fixed orbit around the earth, even so should one stay and stick with the truth, thereby insisting on honesty. This guarantee induces trust, confidence and assured certainty in the mind, as well as in the society. You can play with your drama, but not with your karma..

Enjoy

63 - This from the documentary I just reviewed, "The Buddhist has to free himself of his Buddhist self, the Christian has to free himself of his Christian self, to the extent these are constructs of the mind."

We must drop even the constructs of mind that our spiritual practice rests upon in order to move deeper. These constructs are temporary - like training wheels on a bike. Eventually we do not need them any more.

64-Friends:How to reach the Certainty of Final Knowledge?

The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus, there are these 4 Foundations of Awareness.
What four? The ever calmly self-reminding awareness of:1: Body is just a mass of disgusting impurities...
2: Feelings are only a repeating emotional noise...
3: Mind is simply a conditioned set of weird moods...
4: Phenomena are mentally baked and faked appearances...While always acutely alert and clearly comprehending, thereby removing all lust,
desire, envy, jealousy, frustration, & any kind of discontent rooted in this world...
When, Bhikkhus, these 4 Foundations of Awareness have been developed, trained
& well established, one of two fruits may be expected: Either Final Knowledge in
this very life, or if there is residual clinging, the exalted state of Non-Return...!by BS/loong

65- regarding Lisa's last post,read the same text,somewhere.
However I do beleive that before removing my training wheels,
sufficient knowledge ,must be acquired,just like before removing training wheels enough practice with them on is necessary.

67-JOY,by B.S.


Friends:

Unselfish Joy! How to Rejoice in Other's Success:

Mutual Joy (Mudit&#257;) is developed by seeing that:
If only happy at one's own success, such egoistic Joy is rare and limited!
If happy at all other's success also, this Joy is more frequent & even infinite!
By observing that:
It starts with basic sympathy, develops into acceptance, genuine approval,
& appreciation. It culminates in rejoicing altruistic gladness by directing
mind to initiation, much cultivation and boundless expansion of Mutual Joy!
By knowing that:
Mutual Joy is the proximate cause of sweet, fully satisfied contentment!
Lack of mutual joy is therefore the proximate cause of discontentment!
Mutual Joy instantly eliminates acidic jealousy, grudge and green envy!
Mutual Joy is an infinite, truly divine, elevating and sublime mental state!
Mutual Joy is 1 of the 4 mental states of the Brahma-devas (Brahmavih&#257;ra)

The Blessed Buddha pointed out:
If it were impossible to cultivate this Good, I would not tell you to do so!

Let there be Happiness. Let there be open Freedom.
Let there be Peace. Let there be Bliss from cultivating this.
Let there be Understanding of this mental state of Mutual Joy!

Words of Buddha.

69-Not having lived christmas for more than 30 years, even if you do not want to
Take part of it,Everything everywhere is crammed with the event?

This false sense of love and generosity,could be transformed into REAL

love,generosity,loving kindness, compassion all year round.

For that to happen.One has to take a fork in his path of life.


Think less of money,power,more of your children.

There is a Zen saying that wether you have a 500,000 house or a 100,000

It is not the walls you live in but the empty space!

I lived 22 years in a plywood shack,where I live,we get -30. Degrees sometimes

-40 .That is where I discovered myself ,oh I forgot,7 winters the water froze.oo
Total happiness.Remember not much is needed to be happy.Just learn to live in the now.

70-Openmindness,to all ,what you read in the Buddhism section.
may at first sound strange,weird.Meditate on it or throw it away.

You see with my openmindness with Lisa Moderator of Buddhism,I have learned more in 6 months than ,in 10 years before by myself.Let
your mind open like a Lotus to be filled with bits and pieces of
love,compassion,comprehension of yourself and others.
