Bloggin'

Postby LonesomeYogurt » Tue Sep 18, 2012 7:38 am

Now that my plans for at least a somewhat longer stay have become solid, I've begun a blog so I can discuss the things I'm thinking about and exercise my writing in this prep period.

Feel free to follow along if you want!

Thanks for indulging my ego.
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

Stuff I write about things.

Remember that you are going to get old, sick, and then die.
Just that! *smile*
...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ... Peace is Possible! Step by Step. - Samtach Preah Maha Ghosananda "Step by Step" http://www.ghosananda.org/bio_book.html

BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Punna Sutta Nate sante baram sokham _()_

Maybe you like to marl the Uninstructed Sutta into your texts a little as they seem to develop strong aversion against the body. It remembers a little on the morbid-post-modern-"Nirvana"-trend-young-intellectualiced-undergroundsangha. People, even no idea of Dhamma, like "Nirvana".

Anyway, great effort. :thumbsup:

I was looking for a blog that I had once stumbled upon by mistake. It was called something like 'Dharm Blog' or something similar. It actually allowed multiple people to post. Or at least there were posts by various people. There was one post that I remember clearly. It said that everything that happens to us happens in our head. It has no importance on the physical/actual level. There was a picture of a group of smiling monks on the main page. I know my description is vague and this is probably the wrong thread to post in but I would be extremely helpful if anyone could tell me which blog this is. Thanks in advance.

When are you going to write something new? I read all your posts about a week ago or so, good writing.
