Fine, Marcel. But I feel bad saying it. I don't mean to seem nasty. Sorry. I had to "steel" myself to press "Enter".

I'd talk this way with my only brother, though. Just to try to spare him some grief, if only I could. Or at least let him know how much I care, however imperfectly.

Well, I hold you in high regard, and salute your stamina, resolve, and even the visitations of siddhis (more to follow, whether we like it or not; it's just natural, and part of our original Human inheritance uncovered as we sweep the decks).
I'll get off this "serious" streak: this is the "Play" thread! :lol2:

Don't feel bad Joe, nothing nasty about it, compassion functions via the blade of a sword too.
And no worries about anything even if one deliberately would be nasty theres not much of me left to feel hurt from, I do notice some old residues from childhood but it happens so slowly that I "beat the brain" that I recognize the rudimentary formation and see it for what it is, and so it dissolves and consider anything which happens a blessing, for observation is "bliss" in lack of a better word. Dont walk on eggs for me you can say anything without reservation, I understand the function and the direction.

Ok back to play indeed and enough about moi :)

Fukki-san :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

bokki man nothing to get excited about just a little road trip, but it should be intexperiant lol
its no retreat or practise just a wee vacation to celebrate the opening of the temple.

Thanks for saying hi from me :)
Are they stray cats or wild semi-domestic cats?

What kind of lil retreat were you thinking of?
ps regarding the florida thingy, I already let go of the future but thanks for the reminder! :lol2:

ps just wrote something on the road might as well place it here since its hardly a poem.

awake does not mean youve crossed the finish line, that you've driven into paradise or parked in some holy land of the unconditioned. it only means theres no fictional driver behind the wheel, with neurotic steering movements driven by its memory of the back mirror projected unto tomorrows desire to drive into the land of freedom. No frame of reference no reference to frame. no gas pedal nor breaks, just drive and let Nature take its course, don't get hooked on user experience its merely sense data misinterpretated and mistaken for a fixed and seperate user or character by Natures manifestation through a temporary vehicle. Let it unfold and don't fall back to sleep in some interzone of "supreme awakening", or some other popular half-truth mistaken for a fixed abode, keep driving and founder nowhere. Remember an archetype cannot free itself through the very archetype. "Leaving birth an death" is another story of the persona, the fictional driver. Without the sense of a user from where comes the notion about bondage, transcending or liberating? Everything is Nature evolving, experiencing, mutating. If it were any other it could not be said. And what cannot be spoken is not in a book or a body. Lets keep driving without an accelerator or break and let the cosmic dance unfold woohoo. :heya:

Thanks bokki-man very much appreciated. :)

There is only One appearing here
saying Hi to Himself
let him who come after me
forsake himself
and the One
disappears with the scene

But on this dimly lighted stage
Be kind and say hi to all you meet
if you knew who the One and many were
you' d drop down on your knees.

So I say Hi in bokki's name too
but despite what everyone says
I only want to talk about You.

sorry feeling kind of 'singy' lately
it happens playfully

have a nice day :heya:

You're a star bokki, or the remnants of one
which amounts to the same.
Nothing to figure out only to look through the desire of figuring out
Just turn your light inward, little twinkle.

I liberate you from saying hi in my name
you're even invited to my house
as long as there's a reflection in the mirror

Something funny happened this evening in the valley.

As I was sitting on a lazy chair
suddenly a deafening sound approached me
A vision in my mind saw an airplane crashing right in this flat
thoughtless I ran to the balcony but because the curtains were closed

in those 5 seconds of running but remaining in the unknown about what was happening
a thought entered "This is death, but if so I want to witness the plane crashing right into me"
when I finally reached the balcony a trauma helikopter flew right past my balcony (7th and highest floor)
I just stood there mindlessly following the chopper until it took a left and disappeared around the corner

I knew it was a dream, the heart was pumping
I hoped it would return with camera ready but it did not
that was a dream too.

a lot of thnx 2 all!

A PIE IN THE SKY

so, this utterly impoverished, enormously rich in numbers, family
is sitting around a measly fire on a cold wet autumn night, chating quietly, not in high spirits..
a dozen or more, few mothers with babes, the old matriarch, and a 5 yr old scrawny boy, Flea..

so, d old lady boss sighs...
" IF we only had a few cubics of wood.."
and a few "yes", "uhm hm" and "that would b nice" from d group..
and little Flea thinking
"YES! we'd b warm this winter!"

so, in a minute d old lady boss sighs again..
"and, we COULD have a stove, too!"
"yes yes" "good 1!" and a lot of nodding and "uh hms!" from d group,
and little Flea thinking
"YES! some1 may even cook something!"

then, after another silent pause,
d grandmother says
"and, just imagine! IF we had a baking pan!"
"YES YES" "we should!" "good idea!" from the family..
and little Flea thinking
"WOW, granny is so clever, we might eat after all!"

and after another long silence,
with every1 wide-eyed and mouths open and salivating,
d granny quietly continues
"we'd get some flour, even some meat, we'd steal them onions, we have some salt..
and i'd make... a PIE!"

and little Flea jumps up,
stretches out his hand
and shouts
"GIVE ME A PIECE, GIVE ME A PIECE!"
At which d grandmother quickly jumps up too,
slaps him on the hand,
and says:
"Wait for your turn, you greedy boy!"

I once asked a friend to make and send me a pie
this is what I got in return;

I liked it much better then if I've gotten a pie.
Nevertheless I never asked for pie again :lol2:
