Or was that just a hello?
When real and nonreal both
Are absent from before the mind,
Nothing else remains for mind to do
But rest in perfect peace, from concepts free.

Ummm, yes? Also, it was to consider the source of the previous comment...the one that got you to respond "pththhhhthhththththppt."
OK I have, but I'm afraid you're not getting past my stupidity firewall.
What is the source of the previous comment?
By all means marry; if you get a good wife you'll be happy. If you get a bad one you'll be a philosopher.

No. I did that bit myself. Internal spice rack, I like to call it.
If you are ever doing business with someone of a religious nature be sure to get it all in writing; his word don't mean sh*t when God is telling him how to screw you over on the deal. ~William S. Borroughs

The Spiritual conqueror must advance boldly.

it's that much worse when it happens late.

"Give me patience, because these posts are full of *BLEEP*!"
(Not here... in the gay thread)
if you cant be gay then be BOLD
Actually, better to be wise. (something to which I am unaccustomed)
I left the conversation.
A single conversation across a table with a wise man is worth a month's study of books.
~Chinese folk saying
Psalm 91:1-4 (New International Version)
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."
Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
"I don't necessarily agree with everything I say"
- Marshall McLuhan
“To suppose that practice and realisation are not one is nothing but a heretical view; in buddha-dharma they are inseparable. Because practice of the present moment is practice-realisation, the practice of beginner’s mind is itself the entire realisation.”
- On the Endeavour of the Way. Dogen. s.
