Through many of samsara’s births I hasten seeking, finding not the builder of this house - pain is birth again, again. O builder of this house you’re seen, you shall not build a house again, all your beams have given away, rafters of the ridge decayed, mind to the unconditioned gone, exhaustion of craving has it reached.(Dhp - 153, 154)

Live in joy, In love, Even among those who hate. Live in joy, In health, Even among the afflicted. Live in joy, In peace, Even among the troubled. Look within. Be still. — Dhammapada

Being a human being is not an end in itself. It’s only a transition. It can never be a perfect state in itself. It’s merely a convention. — Luang Por Sumedho

Question everything. Learn something. Answer nothing. — Euripides

Not really a fan of the band, but I happen to think this song is incredible.

I sat and watched two lovers say hello
They kissed and walked away from lonely me
They didn't want to share
The love that's being there
With poor lonely Mister Misery

I walked along the beach alone and blue
I turned to gaze across the empty sea
As memories drifted by
I had to stop and cry
For poor lonely Mister Misery

The story of my life is not worth reading
For lonely is the only word you see
Three's a crowd when lovers get together
But I'm alone so one's a crowd for me

I guess I'll move along where no one knows
The name that everyone's been calling me
The name I'll try to lose
Together with the blues
Of poor lonely Mister Misery

The name I'll try to lose
Together with the blues
Of poor lonely Mister Misery

I'm poor lonely Mister Misery
Call me poor lonely Mister Misery
Just poor lonely Mister Misery

REM's classic "Losing My Religion" digitally reworked with a major scale. Awesome.

Metta,
Retro. :)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_Hates_Us_All wrote:God Hates Us All was set for release on July 10; however, concerns regarding audio mixing, the album cover, and the band's label—American Recordings—changing distributor, caused the release date to be delayed until September 11, 2001.[21] The release drew an unintended connection to the September 11 attacks, which was the second time Slayer caused controversy towards one of their releases—the video for "Seasons in the Abyss" was filmed in Egypt and released prior to the Gulf War.[4]

Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Does this make me lame?

You can really hear his love for Brian Wilson in this one.
