Associating with fools
« 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:
What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
