DOOMSDAY

Posted in Buddha Dharma and Chan on November 23, 2010 by secretchan

THe page just came up and it seemed a shame to shut it down without saying something.  What is there to say ?  The word DOOMSDAY just came up.

It is an interesting word and it conjures up pictures of something final and ultimate.  But we don’t worry because it seems so far away and since the human creature, at least the intellectual ones know there is no last judgment they don’t care much as long as there is bread on the table  and sufficient to put gas in their Ferrari, take weeks off on a vacation safari, and do whatever they feel like, except pay taxes and act in a responsible way towards nature which supports us all.

I don’t even want to mention that an affinity to true nature is essential to every human creature, so I won’t do that, but I will mention that you are a fool if you do not see that DOOMSDAY is every day while you live in ignorance on this planet.

Not really much more to say than that… So have a good day with whatever petty and selfish thing you are doing.

TALKING TO ONESELF

When I was a child, so long ago, I remember asking an old man why he was talking to himself. His reply, with a smile was, “that is the only way that I get to listen to an intelligent conversation”.

After writing this blog occasionally I get a similar feeling that I am talking to myself, and I wonder why I and may others continue.

With the western world with an incredible population it seems that few are interested in examining on one hand the wonders of nature and on the other hand using all natural life that is not human to measure ourselves against.

Most seem to want the former.

So without intelligent answers and support Imy head is beginning to atrophy.

Does anyone out there care about what we are doing in more than an intellectual way.
