i used to have superpowers and launched at "attack" which was more of a vaccine to the people. I had the decay algorithm like spiderman (decay). And decay means Ashura. Angry and honorable warrior. Aspergers are known for honor and uprightness. But I haven't build my connective tissue and practised health. I used to be an Adrenaline Junkie, Anger Junkie. And I saw many things. I have lived isolated most of my life, so I have more Wisdom and Compassion than you can ever dream of.

L.,

No, no. But when you say above that it's God's mercy that would make you "shut up", I say leave God out of it. It's your own conscience that is responsible for correct and wise behavior, not God. That's why we have Free Will, according to Deists.

Sorry that you so easily misunderstand so much, so often.

I think many Buddhists believe that there may be spirits, and gods, in some sense, but they usually suggest that we not get involved with them. If we get involved with them, we can fall into weird psychological states that have nothing to do with healthy Buddhist practice. Or, we can become dependent on them and on our ideas of them, and then we find that we are addicted, and not free after all. Caution!

If these haven't been tested by living amongst others, and haven't been actively formed and refined by conflict and love, then they may just be imaginary. Caution!

You say I can't dream of it. But Dreaming of Wisdom and Compassion is not the Zen Buddhist way, ...because it is not the Human way.

But if you are truly non-zero on the Aspergers spectrum, then I send wishes and understanding, to the extent I can understand through these flat letters on a screen.

best,

Are you going to teach me about my own religion? Ninjutusu and Ninpo wasn't established as a "respectable" art 30 years back. And Islam is NOT established as an measurable identifieable unit yet, a respectable art. And Allah says you threw not when you threw, but Allah threw. And if you forgive it is an extension of Allahs mercy.

We believe in evolution, but consider ourselves elevated and humans. What does that make you?

I respect first and formeost Imams, and muslim scholars. Secular scholars comes secondarily. And since we are here I'd like to say that I don't appreciate that woman teachers answer, it is uneducated and womanish.

You're making everything about religion, I am neither Buddhist nor Muslim,
Not male or female, homo or hetero, not from the West or the East
Neither the same or different!
and I see all religions as products of mind.
You are full of self-grasping, division and delusion.
Ironically my friend, all religions should be a medicine to that, but people misuse religion for their own interest. :heya:

Who's brave enough to really look into the mirror, millions of fakes preach and think they're the real thing.


Only that Illumined One
Who keeps
Seducing the formless into form
Had the charm to win my heart.
Only a Perfect One
Who is always
Laughing at the word Two
Can make you know of love.


The Truth has opened so many mysteries
that I can no longer call myself
a Christian, Hindu, Muslim, or Jew.
I have learned
so much from God
that I can no longer call myself
a man, a woman, angel, or even a pure soul.
Love has befriended Hafiz so completely
It has freed me
from every concept and image
my mind has ever known.
~Hafiz.

My religion has no name or form, so how would you know?

In any case I accept your offer and wish you experience the fruits of your practise.
