Is any of this actually relevant to Dhammica's Broken Buddha?

Ya, two pages, waaaay off topic. I quit reading some time ago.
Split to its own incendiary thread, or delete entirely!
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

to Yana, to reply on your post here
to Moderation team, if it's an inacceptable afftopic delete it please, or perharps create a new topic with some last pages? why not


You can do it by your own thought.

Dont say that "you WOULD LIKE" to get it; because "would like" means "perharps", and perharps mean FEAR. FEAR divide, makes division, division is an refulsion action, ANTI-gravtation. And also "may be will", "perharps will", unclude a time in your equation. There is NO TIME, time and space is an illusion of perception.
So have no doubt, have no time, be THANKS (love = gravitaion = unifying action) and KNOW (ensurance = love = gravitation = unifying action) that you ALRADY have it, feel like you alredy get it, so the system (realm) will get an information that you ahve this dhamma, so this dhamma will apear in your life. Like a mirrow. There is no inward or outward, there is inward=outward, so when inwardly there is dhamma 1, so outwardy there is dhamma 1, 1=1, harmony works, kamma works, Dhamma works...

Ajhan Mun said this

A Heart Released
The Teachings of Phra Ajaan Mun Bhuridatta Thera


§15. The nine abodes of living beings.
The realms of the heavenly beings, the human realm, and the realms of destitution (apaya) are classed as the sensual realm, the abode of living beings who indulge in sensuality. Taken together, they count as one. The realms of form, the abodes of living beings who have attained rupa jhana, are four. The realms of formlessness, the abodes of living beings who have attained arupa jhana, are also four. So altogether there are nine abodes for living beings. Those — the arahants — who are wise to the nine abodes leave them and don't have to live in any of them. This appears in the last of the Novice's Questions (samanera-panha), 'dasa nama kim' — What is ten? — which is answered. 'dasahangehi samaññagato arahati vuccati ti' — The arahant, one who is endowed with ten qualities, gains release from the nine abodes of living beings. This can be compared to writing the numerals 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10. 1 to 9 are numbers that can be counted, named, added, subtracted, multiplied, and divided. As for ten — 1 and 0 (zero) — when we erase the 1, because it's a repetition, we are left with 0 (zero). If we use 0 to add, subtract, multiply, or divide with any other number, it won't increase the value of that number; and 0 by itself has no value at all — but you can't say that it doesn't exist, because there it is. The same is true with the heart: It's a nature whose attributes are like 0. When 0 is connected to any other number, it greatly increases the value of that number. For instance, 1 connected with 0 becomes 10. So it is with the heart. When connected with anything, it instantly proliferates into things elaborate and fantastic. But when trained until it is wise and discerning with regard to all knowable phenomena, it returns to its state as 0 (zero) — empty, open, and clear, beyond all counting and naming. It doesn't stay in the nine places that are abodes for living beings. Instead, it stays in a place devoid of supposing and formulation: its inherent nature as 0 (zero), or activityless-ness, as mentioned in § 14.


http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/thai ... eased.html

I dont know if you alredy realise this 0, your pure nature, but it will help you get from any thought or action 1 get a result 10.
Also you can use this 0 to multyply it by your daily life, and by multiplying Nature 0 by kamma of your daily life 1-9, you delete this kamma, clear it, no more kamma. 0x9=0

This why WE HAVE TO BE AWERE of each moment of our life, complitely awere and conscioss, clearing it. :meditate:

Metta to all beings who suffer!
