About Me

CURRENT MISSION

be aware! that everything is impermanent... changing, changing, changing...

ABOUT ME

"I" am a multiplicity... a stream traversed by flows... a process... a movement ... pure impermanence... permanent impermanence...

Conflicts arise because of wrong beliefs such as the belief in an ego.

"I" is a great illusion. "I" does not exist.

Only this flow, this interaction between mind & matter... constantly changing...

PHILOSOPHY

In whom there exists no provocation, & for whom becoming & non-becoming are overcome, he is one — beyond fear, blissful, without grief, whom the devas can't see.

-----

Through many a birth I wandered in samsara, Seeking, but not finding the builder of this house. Painful it is to be born again and again.

€œO house-builder! Finally I've met you. You shall build no house again. All your rafters are broken. Your ridgepole is shattered.

My mind has attained the unconditioned. Achieved is the end of craving.

Buddha
