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

Ok Ok.... I know enough about the Western Esoteric Traditions to say that I am really sorry but, comparing Crowley, Thelema, OTO etc to Theravada is without doubt the most ridiculous thing I have heard in over 20 years.

Seriously lets remain moderately real.

Magick may well be a perfectly legitimate thamatagurtic system and I have little doubt people thrive on it. But come on..... Chalk n Cheese...! Its hysterical :rofl:

This thread has gone way beyond credible now...I hope it has limited exposure outside this forum thats for sure!

There will no doubt be some bruised egos and bitchy little jibes responding to this - but thats ok. I'm off outta here...there's REAL work to be done!

Sure, Crowley talks about buddhism. But aren't Crowley's thoughts and his philosophy just another heap of words and concepts to throw on top of the Buddha's teaching thereby obscuring one's ability to just look at them at face value or if face value is not possible to look at them through one less filter? I mean, would you really use Crowley as an even somewhat reliable guide to understanding what the Buddha taught?
"I don't envision a single thing that, when developed & cultivated, leads to such great benefit as the mind. The mind, when developed & cultivated, leads to great benefit."

"I don't envision a single thing that, when undeveloped & uncultivated, brings about such suffering & stress as the mind. The mind, when undeveloped & uncultivated, brings about suffering & stress."

"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -
