Re: Random Spiritual Thoughts

The more I dream, the more I suspect that we live in a crazy, wild universe where our minds inhabit practically infinite spaces. I suspect our minds are eternal. I wonder, do plants dream? If not, then why do plants cause us to dream? But I can see hide nor hair of God anywhere. All I see are indivi...

Re: Random Spiritual Thoughts

I don’t agree with anything Charles said above. I don’t think the Buddha was illiterate: I assume that if anyone knew how to read, he did, being a prince, and getting what was surely the best education that could be got. And I don’t assume that he was a narcissist who only cared about seeing the ref...

Re: Twilight of the Tulkus, by Charles Carreon

What I am concerned with here is that the Tibetan “tulkus” not be allowed to get away with the incredible spiritual crimes they perpetrated on the Tibetan people throughout many centuries, and the rest of the world for the last century, and continuing to the present day, without experiencing severe ...

Re: Random Spiritual Thoughts

Gravity is the strongest force in the universe. Gravity is proof that Nihilism as a philosophy is complete bullshit. Whatever is exploded into particles is preserved, and gathered together again into gravity to explode again into form and matter. Even when galaxies explode, and turn into fragmentary...

Re: Random Spiritual Thoughts

We dream of both the living and the dead, and other people as well that we’ve never met in real life before. But when we dream of our loved ones who are still alive, whether the dream is happy or sad or somewhere inbetween, when we wake up, we think “Oh, that was just a dream – forget about it!” We ...

Re: Random Spiritual Thoughts

It's rather ridiculous to think of India as any kind of spiritual leader when they still have a caste system, which is another form of slavery, and child labor in the most dangerous of occupations: mining. This absolutely should not be allowed. The world community should refuse to let India sit at t...

Re: Random Spiritual Thoughts

Breathing has a lot of power. When you meditate on your breath going in and out, other thoughts disappear, because they aren't real, while your breath is real. That's why breath has power. Real things always have power over unreal things. We can pretend that the real doesn't exist, and assert our ri...

Random Spiritual Thoughts

It's rather a sadistic thought to wish that your loved ones will still be alive somewhere after death. I don't want to think that my loved ones who have died are wandering around in unknown places, lost and feeling pain, like they are doing sometimes when you dream of them. Where did we get this ide...

Re: The Myth of "Enlightened Society"

Whatever respect I had for Tibetan Buddhism, whatever love I had for my lama, Gyatrul Rinpoche, I hereby now violently repudiate for all time in the light of this new evidence that I have come upon of Tibetan cultural/political/religious corruption at the highest (lowest) level, which can in no way ...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

So Trungpa turned Buddhism into Pure Pornography. What do we think about that? I feel gurglings of anger bubbling up inside me. He was obviously inspired by Aleister Crowley . As soon as he got out of Tibet, he was surrounded by his cadre. When I first read Rexroth's introduction to the "Great Narop...
