Really scary stuff

Postby Modus.Ponens » Mon Dec 31, 2012 12:11 am

He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

The only thing that is scary is how much it costs taxpayers when law enforcement gets "clever"and "organized" and wastes resources to combat irrelevant nonsense.

Let the man with eyes proceed and get across this hell. (Sn. 706: 137)

That is scary. The noose gets tighter everyday and i dont really see that anything can be done about it. Not unless you want to become a martyr to a lost cause.
