Makara, I'm very sad that folks like you have *given up* the *good* fight.

I too, am *finished* with that, however, I still am actively *engaged*.

It takes a billion buddhas contemplating their navel to raise the vibration, and a billion buddhas being actively engaged in the world.

We are given our gifts of silence to be able to speak above the mob mentality.

I've heard that it only takes the square root of one percent to hold that vibration. The idea being that it is so potent that it would drag everybody else along.

I notice when I feel compelled to disagree with someone, I occasionally remember that I can learn from those that I disagree with and I decide to stay silent. Invariably they begin to move in their dialogue to what I was going to point out.

As I see it this is an example of how the universe abhors a vacuum and fills it with truth. I noticed this with grief also. When one grieves the space is filled with that grief, but when one's view becomes balanced and without grief, the space is filled with the next creative wonder.

More simply put, when we spontaneously let go or stay silent, the universe/nature handle it, flow into it, fill it, etc.

Good thing these words just silently sit there huh? :wink: :-$ :-#

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 of oppositon
into those situations that once I deemed undesirable.

As Xmac says if one holds a view quietly then it's
amazing what happens.

However as for
the square root of one percent
I'm not a mathematician but can such a
number even exist?
It used to be called 'critical mass' - the % required to move
the whole.

Makara,
The square root of one percent of Australia is 462. Just your Buddhist population alone takes care of that. Although that doesn't mean they are holding that state constantly.

David Lynch's next movie is called The Square Root Of One Percent.

Oh...right ... I see ...was ignorning
the % (of something).
this cool website:
Nah...I'm so over TM and flying and
all that nonsense.
eg anyone aware of what it costs these days
to aquire a mantra from a 'qualified' seller ...
er sorry ... TMer.

I'll stick with the old 10% as being required
for critical mass. :lol:

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.
