Passing Away

Postby Still Searching » Fri Oct 04, 2013 4:48 pm

Doctors have runned tests and I ain't got much time.
I have some gaestric/digestive complications.
My white cells have increased.

I'm sorry if this makes anyone depressed.
Thank you for the friendship.
I didn't make it to nirvana but I did some things for the community, I hope that was enough.

Are you sure it is terminal? Hopefully, the doctors can prescribe something to fix you back up.

Hope you get well.

Feel free to send me a pm here or on facebook so we can talk about it.
with metta,

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Have the Doctors given the illness a name?

May you live with ease and well-being, may you be free of mental and physical pain.

---It's not what happens to you in life that is important ~ it's what you do with it ---

Hi AJ, my name's Michael and I'm sad to hear of your failing health; I am sad that you have to face such a thing while still young.

But don't blame yourself too hard for the damage caused: it is so easy for us to rush ourselves and abuse ourselves to death. Almost every person alive will die earlier than they needed to as a result of their own choices, yet that short sightedness is a big part of being human.

Anyway, I have little to offer but my sympathy and good-will. May the remainder of your life be lived mindfully. May you let go easily when the time comes. And should you have another birth, may it be one conducive to the practice of dhamma.

Hi AJ,

for some reason, i wrote this down on a piece of paper while on a business trip to europe last week.

i thought i share it with you:

In my next life:
May I be born into a buddhist family of modest means
May my parents be morally upright people and strict with my upbringing
May I have access to good education
May I be surrounded by good friends who will provide me guidence
May I be able to pursue the Buddha's teaching fully
May I reach nibbana

This is not good bye my friend. It is merely a transition to better things ahead.

"He, the Blessed One, is indeed the Noble Lord, the Perfectly Enlightened One;
He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Serene One, the Knower of the Worlds;
He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

"The Dhamma is well-expounded by the Blessed One,
Apparent here and now, timeless, encouraging investigation,
Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "

The Path of Dhamma

The path of Dhamma is no picnic . It is a strenuous march steeply up the hill . If all the comrades desert you , Walk alone ! Walk alone ! with all the Thrill !!
