Am I a dharma queen?
« on: November 12, 2013, 03:52:06 am »
I think I may be a drama queen.
I would prefer to be a queen or king of dharma but every little event that happens seems so . . . important . . .

Is it?  :D I am sure I read somewhere that it is just a bridge under the water or some such? What is a boy to do?

Messages with flair, panache and drama only please [think I may have spotted my mistake] oh well . . .

Hi, Lobster.  I am confused :wacky::  are you admitting to being a queen:  (..." I may be a drama queen.) :eek:, or a boy?: ...("What is a boy to do?)  :-P

I am reluctant to offer my sage advice until I find out which.   :listen:

Thank you for the dhamma lesson in either case, as  I have learned in consideration and contemplation of your post that my sagacity is gender driven.   :wink1:.......whereas previously I foolishly thought "sagacity" a village built deep within a valley during the great depression.  :curtain: :lmfao:

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.

Good plan . . . for sages . . .
Are you saying you can offer sage advice? Very well, I will trust you. I am not a boy, neither am I a queen. Looking forward to some advice  :hug:

I thought it was a pun of drama queen and there are boy queens too. You'll find them in every gay bar so i didn't have a problem with whichever, or both, allusions to it. Is Lobster a girl or is this a case of gender identification? Either way, boy or girl? And now we're all building underwater bridges?

I don't have any sage advice but here's a link to some -

I am certain that gender or herbal drama is nothing. We after all share 50% of our DNA with a cabbage.

Let me put it another way:

Can we, I, you [your choice] develop independence of our vegetable karma, monkey genes and Buddha in waiting? It is all about me, right? :fu:

- A parent and child share 99.5% of the same DNA.
- We share 40-50% of our DNA with cabbages.
- We share 50% of our DNA with bananas.
- Humans share 98% of their DNA with chimpanzees.
- Every human on earth shares 99% of their DNA with every other human.
- We share 60% of our DNA with a fruit fly.
- Researchers at Cambridge University are convinced that the mud worms not only share DNA with humans but that they are also our closest invertabrae relatives.

In this special case it makes me glad to be part of the 1%!!!!
to me, the signs of a successful practice are happiness and a cessation of suffering, buddhism often gives me this; not all the answers.

So that's it, Lobster.
Do you share 99% of your DNA with a Dharma Queen or a Drama Queen?
I suspect a bit of both actually... :ishift:

 ;D

Thanks guys,

Exactly so.

Personal vanity, aspirations to be a Buddha, sage and Union [sic] stuffing, aspirations to not be a chimp etc are all part of our being. As we close the gap between persona and impersona (non persona?) the The Dalai Drama subsides quite naturally . . .

Meanwhile my religion is better than your religious drama?

Interesting thread, it reminded me about all the things I do not know! Which is always a good thing, to be reminded about how little we know compared to how much we think we know.

That said, gender is but a product of society, mostly. An illusive box that you are pushed into through indoctrination and expectation from a young age, based on the genitals your physical body was born with. I have a female body, and I behave accordingly, to a certain extent. Yet, if I never had a body to begin with, what gender would I be then, or what gender would I perceive myself to be? That's an interesting question to me. Would I understand the gender concept at all? I think my own conclusion is that if we are more than our bodies, more than our thoughts, more than our behavior, then what does gender matter? The great ocean that is my mind don't identify itself as anything, lol.

Off topic, perhaps, but forgive me because I didn't understand the topic here to begin with, so it was bound to end up this way  ;D
