Taken in trust..

Post by Samana Johann »

Good caretaker of this place: In vague trust that it is welcome, my person has taken on account here. May it be pardoned if not the case and of course seen as given back right here.

My person, good householder, wouldn't inter-eat, inter-'essen', nor does he desire to converse, but maybe some food of thought can do some liberal support for those desire after such.

Sadhu (appreciation) for 'Zuvorkommenheit', guessing there is no good ehglish word for this)

As overseen, yet possible wished:

* Actually less interest in philosophy but knowing well it's lure, yet maybe able to share a way out where desired (if such is the objection of philosophy for one).

* born 1973

* Currently central mountains in Kampuchea

* daily going for alms supplies the maintaining of the body

My person thinks it's proper to follow basic advices
Families endowed with seven factors are not suitable to be approached, even if already approached it is not suitable to take a seat. What seven?

Does not rise from the seat happily, does not worship happily, does not offer a seat happily, hide their belongings, gives a little when there is a lot, gives a little of exalted things, gives carelessly. Families endowed with these seven factors are not suitable to be approached, even if already approached it is not suitable to take a seat.
Leaves then better and of course appreciation for all kinds of hospitality and sacrifices, small and little, done, wishing all much joy in good undertakings.

Should somebody desire to go for an escape from turning on and on, one should always feel given and welcome here (yet shouldn't disturb your welfare here at all).

May yours take care of each other by always staying right mindful, never hurt each other, and not waste time to later feel sorry not having done the own task.

Beyond All Directions wrote:
...I will tell
of how
I experienced
samvega.
Seeing people floundering
like fish in small puddles,
competing with one another–

as I saw this,
fear came into me.

The world was entirely
without substance.
All the directions
were knocked out of line.
Wanting a haven for myself,
I saw nothing
that wasn’t laid claim to.
Seeing nothing in the end
but competition,
I felt discontent.

Rather than trying to solve the problem by looking for a larger puddle for himself or his fellow fish, he looked inside to see why people would want to be fish in the first place. What he found was an arrow embedded in his own heart:

And then I saw
an arrow here,
so very hard to see,
embedded in the heart.
Overcome by this arrow
you run in all directions.
But simply
on pulling it out
you don’t run,
you don’t sink...
