To all or none.

Remember when I started studying Buddhism ,not having found The Middle Path yet,I went stark crazy, seeing myself as a Arahat.
Would read everything I could ,went into Buddhists groups,
Took Refuge in a private ceremony,Took monks vows instead of
Leity vows.After 3 years as a monk ,I renounced
to being a monk,sexual craving ,was driving me nuts.It is easy
not thinking of sex when you live in a sangha.But in the traffic of outside life.Pretty hard of not thinking about sex.
Buddha never let a woman touch him.There is this Theravadin
Bhikkhu that never lets himself touch by a woman .This is done
so as to not awaken the craving for sex.
Now I am thanks to Lisa the editor of the group,I have come closer to the middle way.Thanks to Lisa from bringing me ,with
different views about Buddhism.Thank you Lisa Erickson.

To Jilly,

I originally started this thread,for articles that was too short,
also to be like an open book on how I was seing MY buddhism.

Made my own board of directors:
Martin L.King jr.
Buddha, Dalai-lama,my deceased father
and Jesus ,not the christians Jesus Christ.But Jesus perceived,
not as a savior but like Buddha.

Thank you for your writing

With friendlyness

To all or none,

Recently meditated on my beleifs regarding my way of seeing and living my Buddhism.Even if Lisa Eriskson she is -no one's teacher,she says. :),I still consider mine.Her having had a Tibetan teacher for almost 20 years,is a gold mine of experience and Compassion.

We recently exchanged on the way I was walking and living my path.
She ,with her usual,frankness,and love for others,gave me pointers,more than pointers,her truth,on the way she was living hers and how I should after meditation,live mine.
Just too bad ,flowers cannot be sent through a computor,She would get a giant bouquet
With everything she has done for me,specially with her busy schedule.

Ihave,I believe,never said ,what I am about to say..P

Find someone,whom you trust and more knowledgeable than you.

First it is good on humility, then on loving kindness.

To Lisa Erickson thank for wnom you are,with deepest respect

Hi loong,

Your devastation in the loss of finances, homes and love has been my path also.

To hear you say, "Today,Now ,Peace has reintered my Mind." is a great and warm comfort to me.

Your loss was my loss.

Your bitterness was my bitterness.

Your hate and anger and headstrong fight against attachment, suffering and desire is my fight.

Your positive affirmation today is my reward.

Your hope is being renewed.

Your heart is being renewed.

Your mind is being renewed.

Do you have any idea how much joy this is bringing me right now ?

Unspeakable.

You are stabilizing.

This stabilizes me.

Sincerely,

Burt B.

It sounds like it is helping you.
