Namaste




There is nothing more that needs to be said here. ..

In light of my last post regarding life and death and how our actions ripple out, I cannot express how I have been touched by those stopping by to read of what I know nothing of.

Om Namaha Shiva

No, no, no!

Don't stop! Please! I'm serious. I know blogging can be a hassle and a pain, but you have no idea what your blog means to me and others.

I really, really hope you'll continue.

Please.

That comment was from me... I didn't mean to post anonymously. Sorry.

I second what Jon said! Take a sabbatical if need be, but don't stop blogging completely! You have too much to share to hide your candle under a bushel!

Meredith told me you’re hangin it up. You gonna force me to come out to N.C. and give you a non-spiritual ass-whuppin to bring you to your non-senses? It’s a long drive out from the west coast... don’t make me do this.

What are you thinking? Or maybe that is what you are doing too much of - thinking, or listening to your thoughts. Even in your not-knowing you know that’s hazardous to a writer’s health. Finish what you started, which in my book means nothing short of the complete attainment of the Buddha’s teachings, supreme enlightenment, and the salvation of all sentient beings, not one left behind - and all of this documented with wit and humor on this blog. If not for our edification and reading pleasure, do it because it’s written in the scriptures, Sutra 487.T Sec. 22. v64. Heh, look it up yourself, don’t take my word for it.

Look if James and Tyson can get awards for writing about nothing, and even Whiskey get acknowledged for posting old news (even if it is so clean), maybe there is a small trophy in your future - which of course doesn’t exist, but never mind about that - one never knows.

Okay, “nothing more needs to be said here,” so prove it man! Show us nothing more needs to be said. What better way than writing it and posting your photographs? Lao-tzu said it in his opening lines: the Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao, and then what does he do? He says it, and goes on saying it with hundreds of words. Come on Tommy, I know you got a manuscript in there somewhere. I haven’t heard your Tao Te Ching yet.

Plato’s cave is getting crowded. You walked out into the sunlight. There is no going back now. But if you must leave - thank you friend, thanks for nothing.

Aki- if this is ALL I must do, well, then I guess I'll get right back at it... what was I thinking :)

"Thanks for nothing." :) I like that! But, it's true.... what is it all, but nothingness- and everything-ness!

My thoughts were to take a sabbatical for Lent and then perhaps begin writing again- I've never really given up anything for Lent, so I thought I would release this urge to define nothingness and meditate on what rushes into the vacuum remaining.

"Oh, there (here) I am, too!"

Jon, Darrell, Aki- thank you for your kind words.

A small bit of light dawning upon the world from a distant corner is nonetheless a vast and blessed event. For light is light, and large or small, close or distant, it is whole and complete as it is. The nature of all light in the universe is present and can be discerned in that small bit of light. Just as the whole sky is reflected in a tiny dewdrop, the whole of enlightenment can be pointed out with a simple poem, with just a small bit of light.

Just a little warmth emerging into the world is enough to encourage and uplift the entire universe. The nature of warmth, however small it appears, is holographic. This warmth is not greater when it radiates from the sun, nor is it any less when it emerges from your innocent heart. At the end of the day if even one individual takes a half step toward awakening the light and warmth in their own heart, your sharing will have been worthwhile.

Tommy, I enjoy reading your philosophies about life and our spiritual connections with everything that is or isn't. Keep blogging. Here is my blog sight it's mostly about motorcycles but sometimes I express my feelings. Thanks for you insights.
