for the record
we're now at a month called may
st correct in some sense
for the earlier part of this year
were some people call by a number
two thousand and nineteen
but we could have another name for this year right
couldn't we
like we could call it the year a buddha activity
how about that

so since it's the year a buddha activity
since some people are calling it the year a buddha activity
perhaps i feel called
to talk about buddha activity
how you doing
a great well that's
that's something
and i have been called and i have responded
to talk about boot activity than any of you hear me talk about good activity
me to continue

so one story about good activity is it's a
it's a it's a ongoing process

of awakening and liberating living gangs

from their own from there

from their in-house deluded mind
the boot activity is
awakening and liberating beings
liberating bangs from there
diluted minds
they are experiencing
stress affliction

i just heard of a new fear which you may have heard about it's called
for more
have you heard of it
i heard about it recently but then i went i was you and i was referring to it i said former
but it's far more fear of missing out
so someone the person who told me about this former said you're you're one you're one of the people who doesn't have much mom
you know i don't mind being left out
i don't mind too much not been left out i'm kind of generally speaking as you may have noticed i'm kind of out of it
so missing out comes naturally to me
and i'm not too afraid of it
which just promote more being out of it

but there may maybe some benefits of being out of it which allow me to talk to your buds strange things like
liberating all beings so they may live in peace
and harmony
in this world of
hostility and disharmony
so we got plenty of war
and cruelty and so on now how bad
the work of in the midst of such a world
liberating being so they can work and live in peace how about that
well against since this is a year buddha activity we could talk about that
some more

and talk
dash conversation is
in order to liberate bags

and everything i say is
really an opportunity for conversation
including that what i just said

and i'm somewhat uncomfortable with
having some conversation pieces
which can be offered
in this world which i'm actively meditating on and studying
and they're like conversation pieces from a certain kind of like family
a family which
again this is a conversation piece
a family which i am a member of
a family which has a tradition
which i feel called to take care of a tradition of a family
in this family has traditions it has teachings
anna has teachings which are
for the sake of conversations which liberate beings from their own minds so they can dwell in peace and harmony so they can live and work for peace
and realize it

i guess this is kind of like an overture

to a teaching which is coming
and now we move into the actual
which has actually already been given
so the heart sutra says
in english something like the body sought far
i'm a lucky touch far
was practicing perfect wisdom and clearly saw
that all five aggregates
were empty of own being were empty of self
and thereby
all suffering and distress was relieved by this vision
so the sutra says that this bodhisattva of compassion is observing five aggregates
and five aggregates are the five aggregates of diluted consciousness
not it's not the five aggregates of an awakened consciousness but five aggregates of self consciousness of a consciousness or their self and all kinds of confusion and affliction
bodhisattva of compassion observes the mind of affliction the mind of delusion the mind of self confusion and self view and self pride and self love it observe the compassion observes this mind
and observes it listens to it listens to it looks at it
and then there's a revelation
that all these
everything that's going on this consciousness lacks an independent existence
and that vision relieve suffering
this is a fundamental teaching of the bodhisattva vehicle
as presented in the beginning of the heart sutra
the heart sutra goes on no to say

that this selflessness
of all these
phenomena what phenomena
the five aggregates the phenomenon of form color smells sounds tastes touch and tangibles all of them lack independent existence
eyes ears nose tongue body
they lacked independent existence
that's the forms gonda
pain pleasure unclear feelings
every thing that you can get a hold of in the mind
as existing by itself all those perceptions
all kinds of emotions and intentions
fear doubt faith
anger confusion greed
so on all those mental factors and then consciousness itself where there's a sense of self all those things like none of them exist on their own they're all exist only independently
they're all empty but then it says
the the the selflessness is the color
and color is selflessness
emptiness is color color is emptiness so as not just
see the emptiness of phenomena and be relieved but also
here's a teaching
that the phenomenon
who's emptiness with seen and been relieved the phenomena is the emptiness
so there's a little bit of a warning in there about don't
abide in
what is liberating
don't abide in emptiness
which when you see or liberate you

the heart sutra just says
everything's empty
an emptiness is everything
it doesn't clearly said it is an emergency it doesn't we may not understand that it sang however do not abide in that which is liberating do not abide in the ultimate truth that everything is the same
everything has no self
in the sense of an independent existence don't abide in that because that is everything and don't abide in everything
cause that's just suffering
realize that everything's empty and also don't abide in emptiness it actually is saying that but
just to make sure
that people don't miss it a whole bunch of other teachers game

and one of the teachers it came in a sense to compliment
heart sutra and all the other perfect wisdom sutures
is a sutra called
the avatar soccer sutra the flower adornment scripture
in that teaching
the relationship
the liberating
ultimate truth and phenomena
the teaching that day that the ultimate truth and phenomena
the ultimate principle of selflessness of all things is included in all things and all things are included in the ultimate truth
the ultimate truth
and phenomenon
in this intimacy do not hinder ich do not hinder or they're in perfect harmony and also the things
don't interfere with each other
so right it it goes on to develop
a great picture of the relationship between
the principle of all things and all things and the relationship of all things with all things
and of course all schools of the bodhisattva vehicle have the perfect wisdom scriptures
you could say at their back or at their base
but some schools
in addition to the perfect wisdom scriptures have this often tom saga sutra
in their back at their back and one of the schools that has the oftentimes soccer searcher as they're great influence is called basically the author tom saga suit your family
it's called the arboretum so quick sutra score the hawaiian school the school about this sutra
and another school
that has a suitor as turn up their main sutra along with the perfect wisdom sutra
if the zen school

so this huge teaching about the relationship between the principle of everything and everything
that that that's that scripture that teaching is very influential in our family history

and when one of the school the family that developed
which said a this sutra is their main future
they're teaching was that they they started to use instead of using
emptiness and form or emptiness and five aggregates
they started to use principal and phenomena
and two years and to start to rhapsodize almost infinitely on the relationship between principle and phenomena
printable another word for principle would be
and the chinese character that they used for principle is a chinese is a character which is composed
of two parts one the the part on the left side is a character for jewelry jade
and then they put together with another
character and made this character called principle but it refers to
the lines sort of like the fault lines in jade
so a particular piece of jade has a kind of principle in it which is sort of how is constructed
and there are certain lines in it and you can see the principle of that piece of that stone in it you can actually see the principle it's not exactly it's a little bit differently than the stone and yet it's the essence of that particular stone is this principle
so the essence in a way of all phenomena is that they lack essence
they don't have an essence says their essence
the essence of all phenomena is that they're the same
the essence of all phenomena is that they don't move
and at the silent that's their essence
their ultimate truth
is what they are after everything has said and done it's the final
irrevocably irrevocably unavoidable nature of a thing
which we can talk about more right
i was just recently talking to lend ruth cuts
at dinner
in italy and she said what is how does i go again rub the the the the thoroughly established character is the absence of what and what
i said the thoroughly established character emptiness is the absence
of the imputation or character in the other dependent character

the thoroughly established character of of phenomena
the way they really are is that they are an absence
have any idea you impute to them
have any idea you peut to the way they're actually
created them everything has basically and other dependent character
everything exists independence on something other than itself nothing makes itself everything is made by things other
everything is other powered
so the other powered other dependent dependently core risen nature of every phenomena is basically it's center of gravity
it's ultimate character it's liberating character is that anything anybody thinks about anything is absent in the thing
everything's empty have any ideas you have of it and when you see this emptiness of things
you're liberated from clinging to them

and the way you are free of anybody's idea of you including your ideas of yourself that
that's your that's the principle of you and the way you're free
have any imputation to you is the same of way everybody else is free of any imputation of them so that's also are sameness
so our individual essence the essence of the individual is the same for all individuals
and the essence is included in the individual and individuals included in the essence
in other words the principal
in is reciprocal with the phenomenon and phenomena reciprocal with principle
and this teaching read which is really in the heart sutra but the heart sutra doesn't bring it up very much is brought out
magnificently and the high and yang and in our family
in china
it has been said the core teaching of our family is how principal and phenomena
turn on each other
how all principle
includes phenomenon are all phenomena include principal and this observing this pivoting
is is the core of our teaching and the core of our practice
the interviews one the interpenetration the rest of prosody of ultimate truth and conventional truths a principal and phenomena
has been said in china to be the character of our family
and our family said that about itself in china however this teaching has not been brought out in that language in japan as much as in china and therefore it has not been brought out as much in the places that japanese buddhism got transmitted
like california but now it's been brought out right before your eyes
and if called upon it will be brought out more and more until
everybody's thoroughly immersed in this buddha activity
which is this in profusion of ultimate and conventional truth a principal and phenomenon of sameness and difference
so you're you're familiar with our
family song
which is titled
in profusion of sameness and difference
which is harmony a principal and phenomena principle is the same
phenomena is different
the harmony there
is the mind of the buddha which is transmitted
from india to china and now to japan and to the west
that was like
another hors d'oeuvre yes
would you say
i didn't mean it it said
i want to hear i think you said something kind of funny lemon inherit
do you say i don't want to interrupt
you don't mean you don't mean to interrupt okay
you do mean to have a conversation
and i do it more to say so
if you wait for me to finish talking will never have a conversation
or rather if you wait for me to say everything i say you may miss that that was a conversation
so please if you don't understand the orange adjustment doing this conversation maybe i should say something yes
when you said
here is that people
how about yourself
you're an empty at is
i'm i'm i'm empty of them in their their absence in in the way i really

the relic the way i really am
not the not the ultimate really the ultimate really is
the ultimate really is more ultimate than the way i really am
if you ask as say that the way really are also includes our ideas about you
you're just not something there
or even being stuck in them is included in the way i am
but what is not a walk but what is absent is that anyway i'm stuck is actually like
the way i am
the web or do i am is not any particular story about the wham that's absent in maple without excluding any other stores
dina angela
somebody else or
dina them up and j death
finding a planet fun
very copy
emily are
there is a crack in everything the family
if could the harmony also can we also would that be also pivotal point a pivotal point
harmony is the pivoting the pivoting
the computer activity
but activity as harmony and it's how
ultimate truth is pivoting unconventional truth it's our principle is pivoting
on phenomena it's how sameness as pivoting on difference
yes karen
wondering if
that understanding of that's great
does the understanding promote good compassion
it definitely promotes
and it is because great compassion is a compassionate and concluded that understanding
i'll be back to you and a second vivian homer
he said
oh but as mind is the is this
harmony a principal and phenomenon that's a buddha mind is that this disharmony his mind it's a mind
it's not some harmony out somewhere in space it's a mind and that mind we are totally immersed in it right now we're moving in that mind all the time it's being transmitted to us all the time
and we're have the opportunity to receive and realize this transmission of this mind
emily is
i'm doing
yeah it's it's an activity that's not doing anything
i do
it's what you are is not something you do is what you are it's your actual if the actual activity of you're right now in stillness
so stillness has activity
you being you is stillness however without moving you have a great activity
which is the harmony of that activity and the stillness
so the the principal
the essence has function
but the function doesn't move the essence around with essence has function
what's function more like talking like observing
big yeah phenomenon right functioning as phenomena so as essence and function
and essences like principal and phenomena
so functions are
paired with
and essences have function but they don't have a function of being something other than what they are what they are has has function or is function and function is the way something really is
is the what is it is without function something doesn't exist
the washington
when for example
the feeling mean the believe in there
but she is
the worst is gray spam picking operate the flower on it's it's open for it's always hour
but it is a new
some some moment
re sleeping
any confusion about
he set up the condition for the snow and i am so that the pivoting as happen as i'm looking now have to pick
looking at the lotus okay there's a thing about a lotus flower opening
as an activity of what
of the lotus
but when the seed caused him to the mud that's also an activity of the lawrence than when the roots come out of the seed into the mud has also activity of the lotus
is that different from the flower opening
it's the same plant
but at the same time it seems to have routing time sprouting time budding time opening time pedal dropping time for and then fruit time and free time as the time before the fruit goes back into the mud and plants more
is so it's a total it's an ongoing process
a flower blooming is freeing the the plant of the bud
then the flower the flower drops says pedals and freeze the plant of the flower
and then we have the fruit
which eventually falls into the mud again and freeze the plan of the fruit
and when the plants fruit of the fruit that's called the next generation of seeds
so it's an ongoing process
of freedom and a certain point and process there's an opening of understanding and then there's a going beyond that
in the pivoting
yes rick
your pocket
yes go hurry into boy
does this imply exists

application uses
phenomenology like a distinction
sticking for is well
so phenomenon phenomenon kind of do imply distinction who
what's a vicious circle
harmonizing with distinction
it is is possible because distinction is actually already harmonized with non distinction
so the principle of all distinctions is non distinction the all distinctions are the same and that they're all dependent nicole risen and lack inherent existence so the harmony that we can realize comes because it non distinction
is reciprocal with distinction
but an order to realize that we we might need a teaching about this and then we might hear the teaching and realize the way to realize his teaching is to be kind to all distinction
not try to put our energy into getting different distinctions but be kind to the ones we have and the kindest distinction will reveal that in the midst at the centre right along with distinctions is the essence of non distinction
in high end the harmony of difference in unity it says the mind of the great sage of india is intimately transmitted from east to west
what's wrong one and the in the jewel mere samadi it says that the teaching of such as as intimately transmitted boat as and ancestors now you have it so keep it well
like snow in a silver bowl
like a heron and the moonlight

the silver bowl is the essence
the snow is the phenomenon if your kind of the sun if you're kind of the phenomena you realize that it's in a silver bowl
hernan moonlight pattern
it's phenomena the moonlight
the essence
you're kind of the hair and you realize the moonlight
when you re them they're not the same when you mix them you know where they are so you can you can see you can work with both of them
and not prefer
essence or over function or principal over phenomena
what another word for kindness be acceptance acceptance is a key ingredient of kindness you can't really practice kindness with the phenomena
if you're not accept in german he can't practice kindness with the snow
if you're not kind to it so i one aspect of compassion is acceptance
he seems that i'm hoping that the essence of function as a because consciousness as reflected aspects or what aspect
the much after you
he says that function itself carries a and so it's all listed
ah said
the continent's economic issues and said he is a reflective aspects of it in that processor
essence gosh so when that reflection
it's almost like essence of give rise to as ashes consciousness of previous activities
at files and so he gets his sense of a separate he ran
ultimately believe somebody ran from
mean that arises
in my experience has been that it of over
someone used some of these vicious cycle
i think that and reflect aspect of it is it's almost ready
was not allowing
a flower and fruit returned back to it's source it's was like a reflective aspect this is caught and eight
you know a returning back to as well of original thing who and so when they're like aspects arises what what is
that is one relate to that functional essence and the pivoting that aspect
the reflective aspect and
the vicious cycle are two different flavors of snow cones
practicing compassion towards the reflective aspect or towards the vicious cycle that comes from not been kind to the reflective aspect
most people do not practice compassion with their reflective process so it turns into a vicious cycle is it's an unintended you know
infant running around with no nobody taking care of it and gets into vicious cycles
until hopefully somebody started taking care of it and eight hundred and i get some nourishment go to sleep for a while
what it all phenomena or the snow
and all phenomena are sitting in the silver bowl
the of of one ultimate truth
if we are kind to all the varieties of snow
we will realize how the snow is never separate from the severable and also the silver bowl was never had never been separate from vicious all the different types of vicious cycles and all the different basic functions of consciousness all those
and all the cycles they get into their all phenomena
to engage with with the t and with the aid of the teaching the teachings here to help us appreciate except be kind to and be compassionate to the snow and also realize it's not the silver ball and yet
there would be no so there's no silver ball without the snow and there's no snow without silver bowl
but we off we think that some kinds of snow
are not asking us to practice compassion
so then we have this than we get another kind of snow which called vicious cycle
if you yeah
and even if you don't have vicious cycles other people bring them to you so all the different varieties of snow cones will be brought to you
and each one will be an opportunity to realize their reciprocal and yet that doesn't mean you can't tell which one is which
because we had this ability
and to articulate
this we have the poem where says like snow on a silver ball
like a hand in the moonlight and yet these images for us to help us
realize that's the case with all everything is going on on our life
no matter what's going on with our life
it's not it's inseparable from stillness and silence but the stillness and silence isn't it the whole story
the stillness the science helps us realize
the but the actual activity is what activity the activity of liberating bangs the appropriate response
no examples easy

game on
right but everything that it acquires it's actually more snow if not the thing
everything that everything requires is absent in everything
everything everything that anything acquires is absent in the thing
anything you acquire is absent in you because you already are everything
you are already everything like you are and anything you require is not actually in you
that just a fantasy anything you think you can acquire is a fantasy
because you already include everything and now i do include everything but you include everything without like confining it
you include the whole universe without
you include whole universe without containing it
so is not limited by you
it is you
it's what you are
but if you add anything to it that is something that's not actually that just imagination
so you could apply it to snow or the ball but the ball is the absence of anything extra
the ball is the principal and everything
pardon the all of his name
that which is
the ball represents what the ball represents being unborn he asked

rather than usual no home
emptiness my experience
something that can accompany us
an event or
he included
who so i wonder
is this why here
will say
what pops of my mind is is in the harmony of difference in unity i think it says
merging with sameness is still not enlightenment
some merging with an with emptiness merging with the ultimate truth is still not enlightenment even though the ultimate truth liberates it we don't abide in the ultimate truth if we do we run the risk of thinking now being responsible to all
phenomena is optional
so one of the signs of dwelling in sameness
i when i for one time when i was in a class
studying the merging of difference in unity
or the harmony of different seniority the word that the chinese word for sameness is don't
so i'd talked about don't get stuck and don't
so when you get stuck in dull your sense of commitment
to ethical practice
is threatened not necessarily but it's it's under threat went year get stuck in the principal so the principle is what we have to whenever you ever have any principle if you have any around make to keep checking to see that it's in communion and conversation
asian with non principle with phenomena which aren't principle with you know ethical problems
another expression i've been used recently as
the transcendence
of history which is possible is is verified by being historically accountable
so if you feel like you've transcended history like resemble your history
you know
i've done some bad things but i'm free of it now
all the buddhism can liberate us from all the evil we've ever done
and the proof
but were free of it is that we're we're open to be accountable for at all
following that
and if you're become free and you don't want to be accountable you're not free you're stuck in in transcendence which is not real enlighten your stuff you're stuck in whatever happens it's the same
if you really understand that whatever happens is the same than you should be accountable for all the differences
and be willing to for people to call you into account
about differences
that and if you say okay
i'm ready to be accounted
i'm ready to do the accounting that's a sign that maybe you're not stuck in transcendence of accounting
the word on it audit your order and in both meanings
listen to it an accountant
and be accountant
hearted and be audited
i for new opportunities
in games yeah great and if it can do that will realize that right in the distinctions
our freedom for the freedom from distinctions are really lives
wholeheartedly and compassion accepted distinctions that is the place that is the practice which avila contest far does with everything and says that everything's empty
and then doesn't get stuck in that version of emptiness

then be compassionate with not saying that everything or anything it's hampton so not seeing emptiness is another
little morsel of snow
frustrating as another one
smiling as another one
all phenomena are opportunities for compassion and backed by practicing compassion with phenomena
we realize
that they're sitting on a silver bowl
and they're pivoting with the silver bowl and they always were including the silver bowl but our resistance to fully embracing and sustaining them the resistance also made us resist
the ultimate which of all with there
hurry how resistance to phenomena
is also the same as our resistance to principal our resistance to form is our resistance to realizing emptiness
now if you're not resisting emptiness
apparently and you're accepting it then you have to be careful
have any resistance to letting go of it
which is a phenomenon
and if you notice you're clinging to the gift you got from not resisting phenomenon namely freedom from it
then practice compassion of that and you'll be free of resistance to letting go of your freedom
because freedom something that sometimes people get attached to right
it and it's very tasty thing that that type of snow freedom
you mean
snow is kind of
certainly kill her side triggered
this later
like terry tyler
something bigger
oh we had frustrating or don't shoot
frustrating tyrants are tyrants frustrating
at least frustrating
that's a cartoon read
this is person here and that is a tyrant hair and the person here says to the tyrant you're very frustrating
no you're very
you're so irritating
what when you want to see what do you want to say to the tyrant
go away
i okay go away i find myself resume resisting you
i find myself car to who gets the cartoon i find myself resisting
i find myself resisting you
hello tyrant i find myself resisting you
hello tyrant i find myself
that you're a tyrant and believing that my thoughts about you or what you are
yeah he is that
i find myself thinking that i got smacked in the and i think that's what really happened
like compassion was a compact with compassion is it is acknowledging how i feel
and accepting it and letting it be
how i feel about this slap or whatever
and that way of relating to this is where we will discover
liberation from this situation
and in liberation from a situation where will be able to offer the situation
the appropriate response would become free of our mind so now i can respond to whatever is in the courts appropriately
it's a phenomenon tyrants are phenomena
snow it frustrations of phenomena fears a phenomenon
day is a phenomenon night as a phenomenon pain is a phenomenon pleasures all these phenomena are calling for compassion so that they can be liberated
and so that and they are liberated by realizing the truth that's already in them the principal
was saying it isn't it
the place navy or at cause is
like if i see something as
enter a dictator that has a certain duration and time different msa
the its sized really is currently leading yeah
so now yeah
now we have not just a moment of tyranny but a moment of charity and then added on to that is this tyranny has been going on for quite a while and it might go on so my guan longer so
we have here we have tyranny now we have tyranny plus history
so sometimes you know people who are take care of children they notice the churn two children
so my granddaughter's at an age where i can tell you stories about her and she won't hear about them so i will get in trouble
so one of my friends
refers to my granddaughter as
toronto regina
toronto regina
rather than trying to sora's rex it's a female turn turned turned the tyrant my granddaughter
is it can can be called a tyrant she's not really a tyrant she's the sweetest little thing in the world but she does sometimes for a moment a peer as a tyrant
and some of her
but com some of her what what are the people who are the subjects of the tyranny what are they called the tyrannized
so one one of her tyrannized is me and i'm happy to be tyrannized by her it's a joy
and so now she's being educated stop stop calling him your slave
know your big girl now is published stop that but i was okay with big press way for seven years
will we she's a tyrant for a little while
and we're not and then and but now she's being educated because people think will we probably should tell her
just stop talking like that to him because we don't want her to continue in this tyrannical mode much longer
but being compassionate to this moment of tired tyranny would then be extended to the future and tyranny and past tyranny
even though the past turn and maybe decades
so it's very sizes snow cones yeah seems like he said no compassion that
hello patients
because i'm passionate is not change
ah just because your compassionate doesn't mean that the tyrant or disappear
however i think well i agree it just because your compassion is to somebody who has cancer doesn't mean they're cancer evaporates
it it what it means is that the person with cancer whom might be me are you now has compassion as a partner for her illness and now there's an opportunity to realize that in the phenomena of cancer
there is
the principle of all things and then there can be freedom of the suffering of cancer without getting rid of the cancer
the lotus flower opens without getting rid of the mud
the wisdom opens without getting rid of the illness
but if we're not compassionate to the illness we don't put down roots
and saw the flower doesn't open
or rather a flower is already opened but because we resist putting routes into tyranny because we resist extending roots of compassion into the tyranny because of that resistance we resist the flower that's opening in
the tyranny
it's they're already it's the question of waking up to it went we wake up to it and we see the flower in the tear tyrant than we can say to the tyrants some amazing things like
i love you it's amazing
he this big fat tyrant and i love you
and you know right now no matter how tyrannical you get this love is indestructible is just you know and and a tyrant can gonna see that and potentially wake up
conceal that they have wisdom and compassion and them to
without getting rid of the tyrant
every time
the tyrant can let go of being a tyrant which is a certain type of a tyrant which were that's the kind timers or water is tyrants that lego of being tyrants
and when they like over the you might think what can i be tiring for well new
when you go sit down and let me do it for you and they might say okay we didn't get rid of the tyrant the time and just gave it up for a while because the tyrant was asked to do so by a walk wise and compassionate person
the tyrants lot of time and because the time is no tyrant because
because of the principle of the tyrant is that the tyrant actually there's no tyrant in the tyrant
they're just everything in it

our clients
justice yes
well you could say an arc of time as tours love but the problem with that is it sounds like it's gonna come you love and that's gonna be the end of it is more like the path
his love because there's no end to it it isn't like who love is more like you love
the it's an open ended process it there's knows there's no end in sight really except in people's minds
if there's an end of people
then there would be an end to love if there's an end to beings that will have an end of love but there isn't so there won't be
every time you think there's an end or beginning that's an upper another opportunity for compassion
every and is calling for compassion
on the air
on the airplane back from italy
i watched a show called i think it's called the history of god or something like that for the story of god narrated by morgan freeman
and if the nid the title of the this particular episode was the apocalypse or apocalypse
and in some traditions people think apocalypse is the end of the world
and he started with those monotheistic religions were said to apocalypse as the end of the world
and he sticks have ended with buddhism which says in the word apocalypse really means basically the definition is change
i think a tamale etymologically it might mean taking off the veil

he somehow got to come up into agreeing with apocalypse means enlightenment
the apocalypse will be all wake up to what this world is
that's that way that awakening is possible
and again and christianity are some traditions you might say that awakening is coming but buddha's is more like gonna awakenings already here and as working on its right now and we can never get away from it
this awakenings working on us and and were hardy and the process
the awakening process

yes yes

realization of that
that is all love

yeah and part of what i brought this up to mind was
every end
every end is really a beginning there so it's not that there's no ends exactly it just every end is a beginning
and one of the scenes in this
video was some people who are in new orleans during
during katrina
this one particular couple man and wife
ah where the ministers of a church and their church basically got flooded their in the church when i got flooded and course the church went through this flooding that was end of the church
but from the end of this church they made no church so now they saw that the end of that church was the beginning of the church and morgan freeman said to them that's buddhist
it's also ts eliot in the wasteland but when people read ts eliot they say it as buddhist
so what is to saying there can be ends but really there's no end in the end the principle of the end is that there's an absence of the end in the end so it's really a beginning and the same with beginnings
but we are to be kind ends and are to wake realized that their beginnings and these people in early as they were kind towards the end of their church and the end of their life
did you know it was the end of their life
and they accepted that the end of their life from the phone it's actually it was the beginning of a new life
but without the compassion towards the end of life we don't realize that at the end of life is a beginning
and the same with the beginning
and we said well i don't want to be compassionate to the beginning so i realize their hands but it goes there too
but every beginning as an end

that's where we are right now where every and as the beginning in every beginning as and that's where we actually are and question of
being kind any resistance to this situation
and if we can really be kind to would give up resistance to this amazing
ungraspable water that were swimming in
which you know just happens to be also liberating from all fear and distress
