Taking a break

Dear cyber friends, i am taking a break from the forum. During this year there has been an enormous amount of reading and I a few days ago I felt like a man at the banquet table who suddenly realised he'd eaten one dish too many. Now all he can do is still still and quiet for a time. Perhaps this si...

Here's a picture Notice the figure is in motion. What they call 'flying' is actually hopping - and always wiht the use of matresses (also visible in the pic). I promise you living in a house with one banging up and down the hall is a pain! :D TM is a commerical con and ought not to be encouraged.

Makara, I'm very sad that folks like you have *given up* the *good* fight. Not so much given up as changed view K. Gradually it dawned on me that Isaac was perfectly right when he pointed out that "every action must always have an equal and opposite reaction." So I simply stopped feeding the energy...

However, for me unhappiness emerges mostly when I see the misery and cruelty in the world. For most of this life I was like this ... active, involved, outrages, protesting against war or for a 'better' .... Not any more.

Being Alone

Being alone is often easier than not being alone. But often the question arises here "Is this a form of escapism?" It is easy to be unaffected if one rarely interacts.

Nothing ever happened

The email reminds me that Oct 13th was
Papaji's birthday (not sure why he would want
to celebrate or take much note of it really) -

With one caveat: bearing responsibility for one's words/actions/behaviour.
This implies a 'someone' who is responsible
