Sounds like a fools' wisdom to me  ;)

Thanks for the inspiration Jed. I love to see pointers that are clear, direct and beautifull at the same time.

Be still and know that I am God..
Be still and know that I am.
Be still and know.
Be still.
Be.
...

Love Marcel

Here is one for Frits-

Anansi is a spider
Anansi is a man
Anansi is a lazy one
Do little as he can

Anansi has mango tree
He loves the fruit so ripe
He cannot reach the mangos
But he longs to have a bite.

So, Anansi tells his friend the crow
You're beautiful to me
Old crow calls her friends so they
Can hear his flattery

The crows fly to the mango tree
They bend the branches down
Anansi watch them swing and sway
And mangos hit the ground.

Hello Jed,
Thank you for the Dzogchen quote. Beautiful. It reminded me of this one.
Rest in natural great peace
This exhausted mind
Beaten helpless by karma and neurotic thought
Like the relentless fury of the pounding waves
In the infinite ocean of samsara.

Rest in natural great peace.

So reality is alpha-pure,
yet the babes who are careless of that
stay attached to their various ideas and opinions.
What mania to believe in concrete ideas!
How sad to believe in an 'I' that is actually absent!
How disheartening to make an argument out of nothing!
How we love those fervent believers, eternal migrants in samsara!

Question... do you really need any more than that  ??? ??? ???

Love ya, Jed

Yes and no. (well, not for or to me, but a "you" in general)

A little luckily. Otherwise I would be a complete mess.

Depends on who you're asking.
The one looking, searching and trying  always needs more. It is like a shark; it has to swim to survive.
Truth however never needs or refuses anything.

Minding my way
I live in abstraction
My hellucinations
Obscuring the heaven
That cannot be destroyed

So, I get the quote. Reality is always here, while I'm always choosing there - some mental abstraction. Even though I understand this, and have spent many years trying to just be here, the mind, like an evil tow truck driver, keeps slipping up behind me and towing me away.
So then I try to be here with being there.
Even giving the whole thing up is not giving the whole thing up, because it is aimed at a goal.
When it is easy, it is easy. I just pay attention to what is.
Such a weird paradox to know that I can only be trapped by myself, because I want to be free.

My mind is an evil regular truck driver. Oh well, he has some good jokes, and likes to buy food when we stop so I can't complain.
