Spiritual Practices

Post by toombaru » Thu Jul 08, 2010 2:58 pm

In themselves, spiritual practices do nothing.

They follow closely behind a certain yearning for the open air.

There is no spiritual practice that can get you to.....or away from...... where you are.

Apparently one can use a thorn to remove another thorn.

What remains after that is No-thing Being Every-thing.

Actual thorns can be used only to remove actual thorns.

....my morning meditation brings me calm
and a blissful buzz...isn't that "something"?

....nowhere to get....
....and noone to get you there...
.....even no you to go ....



:D

I think I go out with my dog
the forest still little cool from the night
the sun shining on the mountain sides
then go in and have my morning coffee

kisses

Just a feeling ... but
this is the sort of thread
which becomes
a competition
of practicing not to practice.

'You' don't practice anything?
Well. 'i' have minus practice
this morning practice went to -10!
So there.

Yes okay, figuratively you can...
