This is good --

Like dying of thirst at the shore of the ocean,
it is meaningless to live near a noble Dharma master
while having no trust.

Like believing brass to be gold,
it is meaningless to think an experience
that is produced through a technique is supreme,
while neglecting the natural state.


the natural state. things just as they are, just as i am.

thanks t.

best wishes, Tom.

funny ideas are much more funny to cultivate, poor living bodies... would be really great to see something meaningless around.
