Title: Associating with fools
Post by: ground on September 29, 2017, 10:56:09 pm
Only a fool associates with fools.

What is associating with fools?
It is meeting with, discussing with, seeking advice from, giving advice, paying attention to rhetorical questions, explanations, exhortations, moans and lamentations.

There is no way to associate with fools without being a fool.
Why?
Because fabrications, i.e. thoughts and perceptions, can't add anything to emptiness of everything and nothing. 

Having said that I've added emptiness to emptiness just to fool fools. :fu:

Seems like you are easily amused. 

Or, perhaps you are just acting foolishly.   :wacky:
