    you need to get out and smell the roses. take your saffron robe and burn it, put on some true religion jeans since you are a buddhist, go to the club, just for the experience. that is fun. experiencing life, living life in the moment. that is fun. for me it is physical, emotional, and intellectual. i have fun with my wife and kids. i have fun when i learn things. i have fun when i am responding to you.

    If you count the time, how much of it is a funny time and how much is a time of suffering, doubt, grieving, pain, unsatisfactory?

    So how much time to you spend on working and hardship to gain how much time of fun? Try to answer honest, you just cheat your self.

    Jesus had wear a robe and did not advice you to put on jeans.

    there are many moments of suffering, doubt, painful grief, no man but God can understand and console me. that is why i am a true believer because i jumped into the abyss in hopelessness but instead of death i landed in the water of life not of my own doing. that is why i call it Grace. so i understand life is not easy, a major part of it is suffering but there is love. love is absolute fun. a moment of love is worth a million lifetime of loneliness. a moment of life is greater than an eons of death. yet we are offered an eternity with Christ but many are refusing it. to me this is the greatest suffering there is.

    Carrying a Rock

    “Letting go” actually means this: It’s as if we’re carrying a heavy rock. As we carry it, we feel weighed down but we don’t know what to do with it, so we keep on carrying it. As soon as someone tells us to throw it away, we think, “Eh? If I throw it away, I won’t have anything left.” So we keep on carrying it. We aren’t willing to throw it away.

    Even if someone tells us, “Come on. Throw it away. It’ll be good like this, and you’ll benefit like that,” we’re still not willing to throw it away because we’re afraid we won’t have anything left. So we keep on carrying it until we’re so thoroughly weak and tired that we can’t carry it anymore. That’s when we let it go.

    Only when we let it go do we understand letting go. We feel at ease. And we can sense within ourselves how heavy it felt to carry the rock. But while we were carrying it, we didn’t know at all how useful letting go could be.

    Somebody carrying a rock can be called a real believe, that is right. Let it go and seek for understanding as there is no suffering, no doubt, no pain and no grief any more. Only by letting go we are able to see the truth, to understand the meaning of god. It is not a picture, a believe or idea. It is transzendent understanding that comes from letting go.

    i am sitting here getting ready to go to work and my 2 kids are up playing next to me. i am a real person with a heart, with attachment, who have sinned. i am far from perfect. i have many flaws. and i will accept that. i can not simply leave my worldly responsibilities like the buddha, and walk a way, letting go as you stated. there is no need to do so after christ was resurrected. i will take my effort to the grave, there is a khmer saying, “hien si, hien song”. it is a commitment. letting go, taking the easy way out, that is not my style.

    I heard rumour you went through your sister drawers to sniff her panties.

    If I convert myself to be a Christian, can I do that too?

    do not believe in rumors, go to the source. i appreciate you asking me personally. i didnt do such a thing. but if you truly converted to christianity you will resist the urge to sniff your sisters panties.

    i am who i am, a person. althought this physical body is just a temporary shell, my soul is eternal; a packet of photon from the Creator which is Light. i will go back to the Source, given a new spiritual body, retaining all of my memories and experienes as an individual son of God in the Kingdom of Heaven.

    hanzze,

    we speak of desire but even a boddhisattva has the desire to help the less fortunate by staying behind, postponing nirvana. it is wise to be true to yourself, admit to your own potential. we are all sinners and to carry the boulders on our shoulders may be too much to bear. christ died on the cross carrying this great burden for us. he took your debt and paid for it in full. you on the other hand may kid yourself into thinking that arahantship is attainable. but what if at the last moment, you realize that you’re wrong and didnt take the help offered to you by a boddhisattva. perhaps by then it will be too late.

    the old testament outlined the 10 commandments. in it are a many prohibitions. you teach a child by telling him what not to do because that is the language he understads. as the child gets older with more experiences and maturity, you tell him what to do instead. that’s what happened with the new testament. its no longer about prohibiting judgement or the many countless sins out there, buts its more proactive instead of reactive in nature. jesus said love your neighbors. as for passing judgement, we naturally are good at it. it comes easy for us because people are inherently evil and that is the nature of sin. the more you are in christ, the more you do instead of not doing.

    so passing judgement comes natural as a result of inherent evil, so there for passing judgement would be wrong, thank you.

    Dear friend,

    you are who you are is not an answer, it was the reason for the question. I asked you what and who you are.

    If you think you are your body, it must be that you are attached to it, thinking it is your. If it is you, why does it never listen to you. It gets old, sick and dissolves constantly. Actually you body is changing all the time and you would not easy find a single part after a week which is the same before, so it is not a lasting thing, not even for some minutes. Your hairs fall out your skin dies all the cells of your body are changing constantly. So it is difficult for me, if you tell your body is your, it is you. You would not exist, there would be only a process of vanish parts and arising parts. Actually it is a composing of elements.

    I did also not ask, what you believe who and what your are, so the answer my soul is pretty strange. First of all, what would be the soul, do you know that? Where is that soul, had you seen it, had you feel it. What should that be, that soul?

    And more strange, you bring up an owner of that soul, you say my soul. Who would be the owner of that soul?

    The memories, could that be you. So your memories and experiences are you. It would be a nice idea, but aren’t they changing all the time? What if you loose your memories, what would be called you? In the case your memories and experiences would be a person a being, an I, it would be also nothing constant, it would be also a process which no core. Nothing lasting, nothing eternal.

    From a source, back to a source. Which sense would that make. Somebody builds up a being let it suffer for some years and destroy it again. Remembers me on children playing with animals, or building a sandcastle and destroy it again. So what would be the idea of creating a being, tell it, you are now a being and destroy it again?

    Please try to answer my questions more serous and out of your observations and not just ideas and stories which are told. Please look first for your self how it really is.

    Yes, also a Boddhisatva has a desire. If he is really a Boddhisatva his disire would be a noble one. Striving for enlightenment to free all other beings. That is the way of a Boddhisatva.

    No need to talk about Christ, the are millions of people, soldier and what ever, who die in the delusion that they would help others when they sacrifice there live. The only effect is that others also follow to sacrifice there live, rather to strive for understanding first, to be really able to help.
    Millions of “Bodhisattvas” are running around killing to help others. They dont know what they are doing. Helping in delusion is not help, it just makes it more worth. Look at Pol Pot, actually he was a thought “Bodhisattva”, he had try to help his people out, in fact, he did not understand live and cause and effect and lead into a lot of suffering out of lacking wisdom.

    Look at Jesus (the story – he him self had no problem, as he did not die and for an yogi pain is just pain, he would not have suffered as he would not be attached to pain as something that is him self), how many wars are fought because of his sacrifice? If he would not let it be like that, there would have been much more peace.

    If we let die this stories in your head, we would be at peace. Still we fight battles which are not ours, and are not a little real.

    I kill for my familie, I kill for my daughter, I kill for my country. Actually all of them are killing because they think they help. If you look into the deep, they all just like to keep there attachments, that what they are attached to alive, so that this what they call “I” or “mine” does not die. There is nothing more selfish as those people who help and have no idea of cause and effect, they can not help them out by them self, but like to save others.

    (helping) Killing in the name of jesus, Buddha… it is also the same. That is desire, poor selfish desire, but has nothing to do with the noble desire to strive for cessation of suffering, to help one self and all other beings. This desire does not hurt a single being. It protects all being in this world.

    It will never be to late to understand, you will turn on and on till you do. But a existence as a human is very rare, so dont wast it.

    i have been honest. like a true buddhist you have many questions. many open ended questions without the ability to make a sound conclusion. perhaps you are looking for answers to fit your paradigm. however, i view and see the world differently.

    Your topic is “Ask me a question” so dont run away. No need to think about, if I would know the answer or not. It is your tread. *smile* Or is the name of the topic: “Ask me, and if I know and like I will response.”?

    So once again, who and what are you?

    i am not running away. but your questions are vague. they are also loaded questions. you ask yet you have already answered them in your head. i am not quizzing you because i don’t need your acknowledgement. i want to give you a decent and honest answer but when you say ” who and what are you, who is seeing the world”. i really dont know what you are trying to get at or what to tell you than what i have already stated. why dont you try to make it more clear and concise. your writing style is a bit hard to understand at times. i dont want to compete with you. i want to share my thoughts, that is all.

    You run away. You have been asked who and what you are and you answer “I am who I am”. That is not an answer. It is like you ask somebody what is blue and he says blue is blue.

    By asking you once more you tell blue is blue, because you believe it is blue.

    You made a tread in the intention that you like to have fun, so why is your fun in answering question gone? If I wouldn’t know an answer would it run out to be no fun any more, if I tell “to be honest, I dont know” or “I had try to figure it out, but I have no real answer”?

    That question is not vague. It would be a vague question, when I ask you about the future, but you are here in the present, or aren’t you? You are here (you think so), so why are you not able to observe it and answer it?

    Maybe you try to look once more and find out who and what you are and who’s it who writes, sees, and have ideas of who you are.

    More effort, I thought it would make you attain some fun!

    (btw: thanks for your patient to understand my writing) *smile*

    i am not running away. but your questions are vague. they are also loaded questions. you ask yet you have already answered them in your head. i am not quizzing you because i don’t need your acknowledgement. i want to give you a decent and honest answer but when you say ” who and what are you, who is seeing the world”. i really dont know what you are trying to get at or what to tell you than what i have already stated. why dont you try to make it more clear and concise. your writing style is a bit hard to understand at times. i dont want to compete with you. i want to share my thoughts, that is all.

    Your topic is “Ask me a question” so dont run away. No need to think about, if I would know the answer or not. It is your tread. *smile* Or is the name of the topic: “Ask me, and if I know and like I will response.”?

    So once again, who and what are you?
    Who is seeing the world?

    i have been honest. like a true buddhist you have many questions. many open ended questions without the ability to make a sound conclusion. perhaps you are looking for answers to fit your paradigm. however, i view and see the world differently.

    Dear friend,

    you are who you are is not an answer, it was the reason for the question. I asked you what and who you are.

    If you think you are your body, it must be that you are attached to it, thinking it is your. If it is you, why does it never listen to you. It gets old, sick and dissolves constantly. Actually you body is changing all the time and you would not easy find a single part after a week which is the same before, so it is not a lasting thing, not even for some minutes. Your hairs fall out your skin dies all the cells of your body are changing constantly. So it is difficult for me, if you tell your body is your, it is you. You would not exist, there would be only a process of vanish parts and arising parts. Actually it is a composing of elements.

    I did also not ask, what you believe who and what your are, so the answer my soul is pretty strange. First of all, what would be the soul, do you know that? Where is that soul, had you seen it, had you feel it. What should that be, that soul?

    And more strange, you bring up an owner of that soul, you say my soul. Who would be the owner of that soul?

    The memories, could that be you. So your memories and experiences are you. It would be a nice idea, but aren’t they changing all the time? What if you loose your memories, what would be called you? In the case your memories and experiences would be a person a being, an I, it would be also nothing constant, it would be also a process which no core. Nothing lasting, nothing eternal.

    From a source, back to a source. Which sense would that make. Somebody builds up a being let it suffer for some years and destroy it again. Remembers me on children playing with animals, or building a sandcastle and destroy it again. So what would be the idea of creating a being, tell it, you are now a being and destroy it again?

    Please try to answer my questions more serous and out of your observations and not just ideas and stories which are told. Please look first for your self how it really is.

    i am who i am, a person. althought this physical body is just a temporary shell, my soul is eternal; a packet of photon from the Creator which is Light. i will go back to the Source, given a new spiritual body, retaining all of my memories and experienes as an individual son of God in the Kingdom of Heaven.

    what makes it fun is not necessary the answer but how one answers. it is the answer within the answer hidden to the blind and insightful to the seer. a joke is not a joke unless one gets it. the joke losses it value, no longer funny when one has to explain it in details to someone who is incapable of laughing. khemrin asked, who is my creator. i answered, I AM WHO I AM in reference to GOD. GOD said I AM THAT I AM, when moses asked GOD for His Name. when i said i am who i am, i am referencing God, i am a person a packet of photon, i am but a speck in God consciousness. i am a son of God. one of his many children.
