Ahh, but you 'know' there is Very Happy

In saying there is no 'thing', the 'thing' that is negated is known.

Apart from the 'things' known, there is no 'thing'.

The 'thing' that is known, is not what you think it is Shocked Cool

Love

Very Happy Wink


There is nothing to fear from this sweet, perfectly ordinary apple!

What danger could there possibly be from love?! Nothing is safer!!! Laughing

And it's really not the end of anything.....it's the delicious beginning of a wonderful (YUMMM!!!) culinary adventure!

To quote Tony: "The real adventure begins"!

love,
sarasnake Cool

leogod, most apt reference... as usual. (in Aussie, this is called sucking up to the boss Cool )

mikeadam: "lovely apple, thanks saraeve"... though it does seem to take an eternity to digest. Very Happy

nemosnake, what is the difference between thinking and knowing? Twisted Evil

Love

The word 'tree' is a concept, and as such can never be seen or perceived by
the senses.


Only in consciousness does the general concept of tree exist.

Of course... though this 'general concept', is not what 'thoughts' say it is Confused Very Happy

It is 'that which is known'... infinitely more than words ('human' thoughts) can ever say

Hmmm, yes. Laughing

But at least that gnawing, hungry yearning for more food (for 'thought') is happily satisfied Very Happy

love,

Question


Shocked

You would eat yourself? Twisted Evil

aehmmm..... that might be the answer!!!

O.k., to modify the haiku:

The experiencer
that experiences the experience
is about to expire.


And there's nothing left (*BURRRP*) but the 'core'. Razz


love,
