104-just was in another part of Bellaonline,where a woman was surprised of having
episodes,of a form of beatitude,when she was in prayer ,deep contact with her God.
The more a human being,comes one with himself the more these episodes happen.
Buddha and Jesus had the same message, give,give,without expecting anything in return .However Jesus said give in the name of my father and you will be given tenfold.Buddha in his own way promised the same thing.That every giving seed will one day ,bloom, karma.
Namaste

105-This is perhaps the darkest and most disturbing aspect of modern civilisation-

Its ignorance and repression of who we really are.Sogyal Rinpoche

106-2 days ago, I get a phone call from an old friend.He wants to meet me.

However he is in a hurry.So we meet at my office,MCDonald's.
He just came back from a 2 months trip to Thailand,Laos,Myannmar.
He said in thailand ,you cannot feel any agressiveness,nor anger,smiles,everywhere smiles.He said you feel Zen even if you don't want to.Someone told him go up that road ,to the end.All there was ,was a shack with no modern facilities .At first heplanned to camp there3 days, Finally stayed 11days,

He said that when he was there he saw good monks and bad monks.The temples were incredible,specially the ones in the mountains.

He brought back for me,aBuddha,looks from laos or Thai
He travelled many thousand

miles ,and when he gives it to me ,breaks the tip of the
head.The little pieces were there,so I kind of glued them ,and brought it to a girlfriend that will restore it.That used to be my type of work ,but do not have the tools anymore.Also got a tin page separater from Laos.
Life is full of surprises.

107-Comments: Be realistic!
If one cannot be in company with one-self, then something must be wrong!
Any form of company will dissolve, since all meetings end in separation...
The ever socializing parrot-like personality cannot ever end suffering!
Only dead fish float with the stream!
Text by Banthe

Loongs comment:This e-mail I received by Banthe when printed takes 7 pages.He always has pictures or Illustations that I do not Know why ,I can't print.There were t least 6 short interventions like the one I chose.I am making a little book .with the 7 pages.Living alone.

108- in another section of Bellaonline,someone,without knowing ,made me
a fantastic compliment.The person said ,not necessarely in these words:
We were talking about what we were attached to,the person said ,with loong
It does not count HE IS NOT ATTACHED TO ANYTHING.
This person doe not know ,how proud I was to read that.Proud being a big word.
My goal ,as a buddhist is to detach from everyting that could create craving,creating
Suffering,,and taking me away backwords towards my reaching enlightenmen

Thank you to that person

109- Many people ,believe that Confusius,was a great man.
He in his great wisdom,made classes in China and depending on your money ,you would have a certain rank.
Of the poors he said they were dogs and pigs.His worst doing,I have an exemple in front of me.A40 year old woman that can barely walk because her feet are atrophied,to meet the standard that Confusius had set,for woman.let us ay he set the lenght of the foot not to exceed a size 5.
All shoes in china wre made maximumsize 5.
So there have been since hundreds of million women ,walking with their toes under their feet to fit a size 5.
This is the first time ,I have seen a women that young with these feet.
She must have been born on a farm where modern ideas had not reached that region yet.
Oh the Vanity of one man .

That's interesting Loong, I did not know Confucious was responsible for bound feet. I think of it as much more of a Japanese tradition. That was a truly awful tradition. Although I don't blame Confucious entirely, even if he advocated it. Everyone is bound by their historical time period. Many great teachers and philosophers that have put forward great ideas that have helped advance the world in one way, have also supported ideas from their time period that were accepted that no seem appalling to us. For example, the founders of America that were slave-owners, or the antiquated attitudes towards women that Gandhi held. So it seems even visionaries can sometimes only see outside their time in one way, and may be limited in another way. We are all the product of our own historical time period to some extent.
