The absurdities surrounding human positioning.

Unbelievably curious.

I am truly profoundly baffled.

Basically?

I understand why Leonard Cohen turned to monastic Buddhism?

Life is grim.

"There be dragons."


  • It is also very very funny.

    But it's a dark kind of funny, that only works if we find the energy and discipline to lift one self out of phenomenal challenges.

    Which we cannot always do.


    Mind...

    That's where all this starts?

    The idea, of the idea of the idea.
    (Artwork Ludovic Pain 2022)


    Subjective. Objective. Emptiness. Form.

    It's funny? How quasi buddhist actually refer to this as if they owned some mystery?

    It actually really is exactly as simple as it is.

    Not so simple.

    In buddhism, to various degree, we who have affection to the Buddha, devote ourselves to addressing suffering.

    In itself a most complex phenomenon.

    Some misunderstand this.

    "Oh the austerity?!"

    "Oh such dark themes!?"

    Tell me;

    What is dark with choice and acceptance?

    What is dark with compassion?

    Attachment?
    Perception?
    Conviction?
    Individual?

    Release.

    Schools.

    Mahayana.

    Veda.

    Artes.

    L'Academie.

    The Science Of The Arts?

    Patrick Wilson speaks of Armamentarium.

    The tools.

    My friend?


    The tools.

    You see...

    You really are HERE.

    And that really hurts.

    Until you no longer believe in suffering.

    Until you no longer need to be heard or seen.

    Until you accept.


    All is.

    What are the outcomes you wish in your life?

    How to address achieving those outcomes?

    - What is your direction?
    - What is your intention?
    - What is your motivation?
    - What is your reason?

    You are nothing?

    How can you strive?

    First?


    Get past you.

    Just answer the three questions above?

    Then;

    Are you true?
    Are you sincere?

    What is it?

    What are you doing?


    Fundamentally?

    "So um... What is, um... your relation to your perceived reality?? I am just asking for a friend? Right?"

    This.

    And this only will determine the quality of your life.

    Everything else is suffering.

    No wait?!

    That's a good thing!

    "WHAT? BUT IT SOUNDS SO RAW?"

    OK...

    One step back buddy?

    Everything ELSE?

    ELSE...

    This means - you don't do not have to remain in the subjective phenomenal storms of horror, joy and objective chaos.

    Dance?

    Look.

    Nothing to lose.

    It's all lost.

    All is.

    Relax.

    Breathe.

    Breathe.

    Breathe.
