Just keep breathing in and out like this. Don't be interested in anything else. It doesn't matter even if someone is standing on their head with their ass in the air. Don't pay it any attention. Just stay with the in-breath and the out-breath. Concentrate your awareness on the breath. Just keep doing it. http://www.ajahnchah.org/book/Just_Do_It_1_2.php

This is a strange affair
The time has come to travel but the road is filled with fear
This is a strange affair
My youth has all been wasted and I'm bent and grey with years
And all my companions are taken away
And who will provide for me against my dying day
I took my own provision, but it fooled me and wasted away

Oh where are my companions?
My mother, father, lover, friend, and enemy
Where are my companions?
They're prisoners of death now, and taken far from me
And where are the dreams I dreamed in the days of my youth
They took me to illusion when they promised me the truth
And what do sleepers need to make them listen,
Why do they need more proof?
This is a strange, this is a strange affair

Won't you give me an answer?
Why is your heart so hard towards the one who loves you best?
When the man with the answer
Has wakened you, and warned you, and called you to the test
Wake up from your sleep that builds like clouds upon your eyes
And win back the life you had that's now a dream of lies
Turn your back on yourself and if you follow,
You'll win the lover's prize
This is a strange, this is a strange affair

Hey convivium

Steve Reich is awsome!

If you don't know it yet, you should listen to Terry Riley's "In C" (the 25th anniversary version is far superior to all others I've heard to this day).

PS: I didn't read your paradox explanations because I didn't have time, but thank you for that :smile:

Ok so had a shave, cut my ear posted on facebook about it and received this wonderful song which made me regret loosing the facial hair! Then realized it was Uposatha :(


so no observance this week :thinking:
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

If you're a drone fan, you'll love this. It has nothing to do with heavy metal. It's an almost religious experience.

Not a lot TBH. I was always more into the gothic metal side of things, though doom influenced. Stuff like my dying bride, katatonia, anathema ect. I like a lot of the more experimental black metal too. Though there's a lot I haven't listened to in years.

I have to go to bed now it's fairly late but I'll look over what you posted in tomorrow and post some stuff of my own

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.
