You don't need a reason to be alive.

You may need one to kill yourself.

Which life?

She describes "her life", while he mentions "his life", and others speak of "their lives", never realizing that Life is not theirs at all.
This illusion of possession separates them all from actual Life, which so generously offers them all an opportunity to live it.





The Root of Sanity.

The root of sanity is simple: avert your gaze from people, and become aware of Reality, instead.

The Root of Insanity.

Ego isn't just bad for you; it is the root cause of insanity.

Loss of control.

Fear, Desire

Posted by Sacred Fire (Adepts) at Nov 4 2017, 01:14 AM. 3 comments

Fear of bad things brings them to you. Desire for good things drives them away.

"But how can I stop wanting, to get the thing I want?" - There's a Zen koan about that. How to grasp something with your hands always open? Can you grasp the air with them closed?

Taoism is and is-not.

Posted by crow (Admins) at Nov 2 2017, 11:52 AM. 2 comments

Taoism is not ideas; it is what exists - and has always existed - before ideas.
Try to gain something from it, and it will offer you nothing.
Honor it as sacred, and you will be enriched.

Perseverance.

The ability to commit to something and to stay committed in the midst of difficulty makes all the difference.
Giving up gets you nowhere.

The Nastiest Trick

Posted by Sacred Fire (Adepts) at Oct 14 2017, 03:33 AM. 0 comments

When someone says, "There is no truth," that is hubris, vanity, ego.

"Alright then," says the Nihilist, leering at you, "Let's be humble and admit we can't know the truth. So there's no point in saying that there is a truth. Thus, there is no truth."

Choice.

Acceptance is the most important choice.
