daily dharma (‘some of the dharma’ pages 26-29)

Some days “the dharma” seems more difficult to deal with than others. Like today, starting with statements like – “Nothing matters – it doesn’t matter” and then going into a several page explanation about why all sensual experiences are a false interpretation of reality which are themselves(the senses) illusions of a non-reality. “There could therefore be no seeing if everything in the world were seeable.” Valuing what the senses tell us is “contamination” or as J.K. says, “SENSATION equals CRAVING equals GRIEF”.

On that subject I would like to quote a passage from the sacred writing of Charles Schulz when Charlie Brown says, “GOOD GRIEF!”

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.
