  1. More on attachment, or, Bloody Bliss and Freedom

    I've had a major breakthrough on the subject of love and attachment, that has been a work in progress for a long time.

    Recently my mind has 'lost the plot', exhaustingly running around in crazy circles, really causing a significant amount of suffering on an hourly basis. Since last Christmas I've been doing everything that I possibly can to deny, block, suppress, divert etc etc the feelings of love that were trying to arise.

    Then (at last...) I remembered that the ...

  2. Why complicate things while the Buddhas' Teaching can be summarised in one verse

    Dhammapada

    Verse 183: Not to do evil, to cultivate merit, to purify one's mind - this is the Teaching of the Buddhas.

  5. Thoughts on attachment

    I've spent a lot of time thinking about attachment. I've decided to make this little space a place where I can jot my meanderings.

    It is so difficult to use language and not to convey a sense of self. If one is 'self referential' there are only certain words available, self, me,I, mine, myself.. Etc.

    In order to make it easier and clearer, I'm going to refer to the aggregate representing as Mara - as samsara Mara, SM. Could this be why people who ordain are given ...
