Quote from the Buddha

If, in your course, you don't meet your equal, your better, then continue your course, firmly, alone.
There's no fellowship with fools...The Buddha

What is the most important thing you've got?

I woke up early couple of days ago, around 4:30, my mind was heavy with great buzz. The question was clear, what is the most important thing you've got? What is it? is it God? what do you know of God? Have you seen him? For you God is a Mythology, a theory, a belief system, a word you flip it and becomes Dog! You are trained to seek God but what do you have Now that you most value and experience? Not tomorrow not after a week, NOW!

Is it your job? your money? your family? your desires? your seeking? All these are nothing but contemporary existence of your choosing, sooner or later reality will change and the lake will be calm.

The only thing you ever had and will always your Freedom...
You are a free being,
Experience this freedom till the last drop,
It is who you really are,
Free to laugh,
Free to cry,
Free to be happy or choose to feel sad,
Scream it out, Shatter the misery myth,
Live it out without any hesitation,
You are a free being and your essence is made of free stuff
Don't settle for anything less
Cherish it,
Preserve it,
Guard it with all you've got
And when you fully experience this
Remember, it is like a labyrinth
In a way it is an intrigue
In another it is forever
But expand it more
And know more
For that
Is your

Happy Easter

Friend sent me these pics, aren't they adorable? The other question, how can man get himself to harm these animals..I don't know..anyways enjoy the pics, click on each to enlarge :)

The Wizard and The Love Circles

In his way, he took out a tree branch and with it he started drawing in the sand a circle within bigger, then within bigger one until several were drawn, then he drew an outside circle and again several bigger circles around the smaller ones, when the wizard was done, there was a scene similar when several small rocks are thrown into a lake… Toto was passing by, he sat next to the wizard and the following conversation tool place:

Toto..: Good morning it is a beautiful sun rise

Wizard.: I see you are in good mood.
yes… I am… I feel very good.
That is the problem…
Why master?
Would you find the scene beautiful if the sun hurt your eyes? Or caused you pain? Would still feel the same?
I think not.
That is the problem…. (Looking at the sand again)…
I am completely lost…
Yes, you are… but so are many.
Can you help me understand?
It is about love...
As usual… but what s wrong with what I said…?
When you love you start from where you are going out.. then and only then you should change territories.
I think I need more hints…
How many people have you met that are happy with other people, but with their own they’re not, how many changed their mother tongue and are only proud of their new language, how many take on a new religion and make fun of the their previous one… how many ?
Most did one or more of this…
love, my dear one, is born with you, no differentiation of who and what part of the universe you happen to be… you must learn how to love that first…Then you can go on loving others.
And when that doesn’t happen…?
your whole life becomes seeking a mirage... something unreal... waste of time..
But I know many who don’t like their roommates, brothers who can’t stand each others, husbands and wives that have different paths, countries that have rulers that destroyed them and forced their people to leave… if all these people remained together because one need to love another.. There will be much more suffering in this world.
I never said that they should remain where they are, but when they decide to leave, love should always remain.
I understand…
This is the rule of the universe… it is called “The circles of love”
Oh… what you were drawing in the sand
I see… isolated circles all around, and within them there is other circles, we are born in the central of one of these circles, and each one have many circles around him…
And your mission in this game is to cover all the circles… starting from your own, expanding outward, when all your circles are completed only then you should jump to another and another until you become every circle that was ever drawn.

Toto felt a rush of love in his heart, thanked the wizard, and left walking on the sand next to the circles…he thought to himself, he was all over the place covered few circles here and there, his first mistake was he jumped from his circles to others without completing his own first… Oh.. how much suffering this brought about… but now he understands.. now he understands.

The wizard looked at Toto with tears in his eyes, then stood up, wiped out all the circles and looked lovingly at the sun.

Ishaya Meditation..another form of meditation

I just got a CD from a friend of mine (Thank you Yasmin!) .
The CD was handed to me by someone in a church where I go for another type of meditations Created by Osho.

The representative who handed the CD to me asked me, why do you need that? don't you do your own form of meditation?

Another misunderstanding people have about meditation...

Not only do I participate in Osho type of meditations but I participate in Muslim Sufi type Meditation, Traditional Muslim type meditation, Buddhist type meditation, Kundalini type meditation, Sahaja Yoga type meditation and many others...In fact there is a form of meditation that is mostly formed of just dancing. You get so absorbed with the dance that it makes no difference if you were sitting idle or moving.

The job or the essence of meditation is to go that "space"... that blissful state of be here in the the now!

In fact once you participate in any form of meditation with the right understanding for long time, you can easily understand other types of meditations. If you do and still don't understand this point, you got a looong way to go.

This actually relates to one post I wrote earlier (The Game the continuos search of perfection). There is NO specific Best Technique. The street fighter knows that pretty well. In meditation it is exactly the same. Once you reach that "space" it is all you want, how you get there, it s not important, it is just a form of entertainment :)

The myth of tolerance

In today's' society's, societies pride themselves on being "tolerant" to each other.

In Christian countries, Christians should be Tolerant to Muslims, in Muslim societies Muslims should be tolerant to Christians and Jews, in Jews societies the Jews should be tolerant to Palestinians, on the other side the Palestinians should be Tolerant to Jews... Do you see the problem??
Each one of these groups feel superior to the other therefore, they need to tolerate them.

I remember being asked when I first came to Canada, are you guys tolerant to Jews and Christians? I never expected this kind of question! My best friend is Christian and he works in a Jews area, trading with them all the time. We never paused and thought, let s be "tolerant" to each other! Because WE ARE each other. We know the paths are different, but that what adds flavour to life.

People shouldn't be "Tolerant" to each others, they should BE each other. No one is superior to anyone else. Your religion is your decision. As long you are happy and I am happy, that is really all that matters.
