    The Silence The Gateway

    How can silence be the open door into all that is beyond this realm of illusion? It is as if the nothing of existence becomes all in the space of silence. The space between the body cells just flows with abundance of life stream. No longer is the flow held up by thought...

    One of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned

    has to do with two kinds of smart. I sum it up like this: Intelligence is learning from your mistakes, but wisdom is learning from the mistakes of others. Intelligence is hard earned and often painful. To get it, you must lose money; you must lose face; sometimes you even lose...

    There are rules in the Pali canon, by which to live, to put into your life. The Buddha lived a long life but found Nibbana, a self realisation and the ending of the pain of existence. These are spiritual matters I adhere to over religious dogma.

    If you have laws then you should follow them.

    If you believe in teachings then you should adhere to them, but if you believe in the truth, no matter what it may be, then you are free to change, free to adapt and free to make mistakes without being condemned to punishment.
