First Meditative Absorption...

Image
  Shabalala Publications - Asanga  glosses the term “meditative absorption” in the following manner: The term “meditative absorption” refers to [a state in which the mind]  meditates correctly on an object and recollection holds fast [to an object] one-pointedly. The sutras describe each of the four meditative absorptions with a formulaic statement. Asanga glosses each expression that appears in these statements in his Listeners’ Level. The canonical description of the first meditative absorption is as follows: Separated from the objects of desire, separated from evil and nonvirtuous qualities, [the practitioner] achieves and then remains in the first meditative absorption, which is characterized by the joy and ease that are born of separation and is accompanied by deliberation and reflection. Commentarial literature defines the meditative absorptions in terms of their main components or limbs. The first meditative absorption consists of these five limbs: (1) deliberation, (2) reflect

No Doubt an Outlier... But So Was Trump in 2015

Rethinking Trump and One's Own Karmic Reactive Response to His Criminal Actions...

Image
    *The brutal manipulative behaviour of narcissists can have quite an  impact on their victims . Dealing with narcissists is very personal and you have to learn  how to deal with yourself and your mind . This nation has been torn apart by the political firestorm created by former president Donald J. Trump and his sycophants who willingly and eagerly participated in his Big Lie that the 2020 election was stolen from hum. An allegation completely devoid of factual evidence. Additionally, Trump lost 60 challenges to the results of the 2020 election in multiple courts of law. Yet Mr. Trump persisted, and continues to persist today, in pushing the delusional Big Lie . It is of course no secret that Mr. Trump is, and always has been, a narcissist with an ego as big as the sky over his new home at Mar Largo. Maybe as big as the sky over the entire state of Florida. It is safe to say that Mr. Trump is now experiencing the results of his many years of negative karma. Hs most recent negative k

The Day FOX Publicly Admitted It Is Not a News Outlet...

Image
  Buddhist cannot and should not stand by and observe our representative democracy fall prey to the likes of FOX disinformation network. Truth must be told and persons responsible for January 6, 2020 MUST be held accountable and suffer the appropriate recriminations for their treasonous actions on that day. Fox News Admits It’s Not News By Refusing To Show 1/6 Hearings Senator Schumer responding to FOX and its decision not to air the public hearings on the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol. The day Trump supporters attempted to overturn the  free and fair 2020 election that resulted in Trump's landslide defeat to President Biden. In truth a traitorous act against this nation and its people. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer blasted Fox News for treachery and cowardice and said that it seems like they aren’t real news. Schumer said on the Senate floor: Tomorrow evening, the House Select Committee will hold its first public hearings on the insurrection of January 6 th . It wil

Gun Violence In the USA and Elsewhere...

Why So Much Violence In The World...

Will the Gun Violence Ever Abate?...

Image
As America continues to careen down the gun violence highway with guns blazing children and other innocent people die. And our law makers, almost exclusively republican, refuse to do a damn thing about it. Apparently in their eyes the right to own and indiscriminately use a gun trump's the life of school children and others who die... REGULALY ... by gun violence. I came across the following article written by  James Baraz  in 2011 following the shooting of  Gaby Gifford by Jared Loughner. It is America's shame that 11 years later this nation is in an even darker place with gun violence and the culture of guns and death than we were 11 years ago. It is any wonder many, perhaps most, in America believe that once again not a damn thing will change following the very recent rash of mass shootings. Gun proliferation and death will likely continue escalating rather than diminishing in the USA,  as continued  ignorance blinds many millions in this nation. And now excerpts from te 2

Great Advertisement for Tourism... Eh Republicans of America?

  Is THIS an example of American exceptionalism? Just asking cause it seems as if mass shooting have become daily occurrences' in the land of the free and home of the dead.
