The Taoist way of life for example would suggest that rather than transformation of nature we can seek identification with nature, rather than goals we can seek spontaneity, rather than projecting ourselves onto the world we can accept its flow of energies with humility.

At first I thought the Dalai Lama's comments were very sexist for someone so special, but you have to remember he isn't actually a Dalai Lama he's just some random Tibetan kid chosen at random.

As much as you can, keep dunya (worldly life) in your hand--not in your heart. That means when someone insults you, keep it out of your heart so it doesn't make you bitter or defensive. When someone praises you, also keep it out of your heart, so it doesn't make you arrogant and self-deluded. When you face hardship and stress, don't absorb it in your heart, so you don't become hopeless and overwhelmed. Instead keep it in your hands and realize that everything passes. When you're given a gift by God, don't hold it in your heart. Hold it in your hand so that you don't begin to love the gift more than the Giver. And so that when it is taken away you can truly respond with 'inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon': 'indeed we belong to God, and to God we return.'

I’m absolutely not a rabbi, but I’ve been thinking a lot about this, actually, and what stealing might mean to gd. and I know this post is probably a joke but like I said. been thinking about it a lot.

So what a lot of people may not know is that the Torah is mostly like. a farming manual. A day-to-day life guide for 6,000 years ago. And so it has instructions for harvesting, of course. But it says specifically that you shouldn’t reap all the way to the edge of your field, and that you should leave that for the poor. It also says that you shouldn’t take the fallen grapes from your vineyard, and to leave that also for the poor. And a lot more little things like that.

So why is it encouraged? Why doesn’t it count as stealing for the poor to take the food you grew?

I think that gd’s definition of stealing would, in this case, punish you if you did take the fallen food from your fields, because you’d be taking it from the mouths and bellies of people who clearly desperately need it. It’s not the poor who are stealing, because they are simply trying to survive. I think gd wants us to remember, in our harvests, in our successes, that we have a duty to give what we can to those who need it, and if we don’t, that’s stealing from our fellow human.

Even when we are not speaking or acting, most of us find that our mind still goes on working – thinking, daydreaming, planning, worrying, eating up precious energy that should be going to the body to maintain health. In a sense, our mind is in overdrive all the time. But in meditation we can learn to shift the mind out of overdrive and down into fourth gear, then to third, to second, and eventually to first. We may even learn how to put our mind into neutral and park it for a while by the side of the road.
When we can do that, a much higher faculty – which the Hindus and Buddhists call prajna, “wisdom” – comes into play. Then we will find that we see deep into the heart of life, with fathomless patience at our disposal. When we have learned to park the mind even for a short period, so much vitality is conserved that every major system in the body gets a fresh lease on life.

– Eknath Easwaran, from "Words to Live By: A Daily Guide to Leading an Exceptional Life"

Questioner: How should we treat others?

Ramana Maharshi: There are no others.
in the ER room through hours of prayer and meditation I came to the understanding that I have to love everyone all of the time. I am not a person who can love some of the people all of the time, or all people some of the time. even if they do or say things I don't agree with.

when I pick and choose who to love and when I should love them or not. I get taken to places I don't want  to be. I don't want to feel ill will towards anybody. I only want good things for everyone and I should include myself in that. I often leave myself out.

Yes. To try and control and manipulate others will always end badly. The only thing you need to control is yourself, the only place you’ll ever truly be free is your mind. This is why feelings like guilt are useless, it’s self denial and it’s mental. Stop conditioning things, change your mind and be patient with yourself and it will naturally extend to others. Bless.

that's not what I was up to. all of this did hurt my mother and grandmother. almost killed me too.

when your escape is online and people sabotage that, then where was there left for me to go? some of you still won't own up to how irresponsible you were and your own awful behavior.

Neo gained peace because he gained knowledge of self. Then he began seeing with his heart and everything was light. Trinity couldn’t go with him but she got a glimpse.

"The first truth, brothers, is the fact of suffering. All desire happiness, sukha: what is good, pleasant, right, permanent, joyful, harmonious, satisfying, at ease. Yet all find that life brings duhkha, just the opposite: frustration, dissatisfaction, incompleteness, suffering, sorrow. Life is change, and change can never satisfy desire. Therefore everything that changes brings suffering." -- Siddhartha Gautama

“Society must be organized in such a way that man's social, loving nature is not separated from his social existence, but becomes one with it. If it is true, as I have tried to show, that love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence, then any society which excludes, relatively, the development of love, must in the long run perish of its own contradiction with the basic necessities of human nature. Indeed, to speak of love is not "preaching," for the simple reason that it means to speak of the ultimate and real need in every human being. That this need has been obscured does not mean that it does not exist. To analyze the nature of love is to discover its general absence today and to criticize the social conditions which are responsible for this absence.”

What is Poison?

He replied with a beautiful answer - Anything which is more than our necessity is Poison. It may be Power, Wealth, Hunger, Ego, Greed, Laziness, Love, Ambition, Hate or anything

What is fear.....?

Non acceptance of uncertainty.
If we accept that uncertainty, it becomes adventure...!

What is envy ?

Non acceptance of good in others
If we accept that good, it becomes inspiration...!

What is Anger?

Non acceptance of things which are beyond our control.
If we accept, it becomes tolerance...!

What is hatred?
Non acceptance of person as he is.
If we accept person unconditionally, it becomes love...!
