daily dharma (‘some of the dharma’ pages 8-11)

Four precepts against lust(greed), killing, lying and stealing. Gee, Christianity has ten, however Buddha is compared to Jesus a few paragraphs later as being similar in thought.

Some snarkyness toward Taoism. Pooh-poohing the “Tao of Pooh” as it were.

By the time you reach the fourth level of meditation it seems as if you achieve nothingness. An in-between state without ups or downs.

Ah, all man needs is to find an isolated place for solitude, some good basic(cheap) food and abandon any ego dependencies. Described in other terms; food and free will.


About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
