    on the other topics, personally as a christian I have a totally different view point. I think people should learn to be happy with what they already have. You go around chasing things you dont' have, you could never be happy. I view emotions as god given. Life has it's bad times, and it's good times. As long as I can study martial arts, have food in my stomach, and a warm bed, a few dollars in my pocket, and working toward my goals things are alright. I think there are people with less than that. With out the bad times would I appreciate what god is going to give me? I thing people should be positive, there is already to much negativity in the world already. What does negativity do?
    How can you be "happy with what you have" if you have no happiness, or nothing to be happy about.

    It's all a cycle and nothing is permanent. The best thing to do is to be happy with progress.

    Anyway, I am thinkin of this place

    westcoastma.com

    When my schedule clears up that's where I wanna head to.

    Hmm, this is interesting, from brazilian ju-jutsu to the meaning of life, hmmmm

    My opinion, is that once probably isn't going to label you a creonte, but you don't want to go from school to school. Your body needs time after getting hit hard to recouperate. Some of the competitions can get bloodthirsty, so I have heard. You ought to be getting stronger, not weaker.

    where would we be without your elegant prose?

I think it may have been a dream, but it matters not.The events, trials, and tribulations of life are like a maelstrom, a savage hurricane which howls rains down upon us from all angles. Our instinctual response to this is to hold on to things like a drowning man clutches at driftwood. The irony is that, in each and every moment we have the oppurtunity to be in nirvana, to realize paradise, simply by letting go. By letting the storm rage and posing no resistance to it, we become the storm, and remember the intensity of our divinity.

    The "holding on" is the manifestation of emotion. The letting go is the manifestation of bliss.

    But its not even a matter of just letting go, or holding on. It's a matter of just breathing. Breath and remember your divinity. Allow yourself to smile. Because the beautiful truth of it, is that WE ARE. We are.

    in buddhism we say; desire is the root of all evil

    why? well, obviously people dont desire to be sad, or angry etc they desire happiness, its just natural it makes you "feel" good. but feeling "good" is superficial, just as in christianity they say "from dust to dust" this world and this body isnt the ultimate truth, god is the only "ultimate truth", therefore, since we aspire to understand god we have to try and be like 'him'..which doesnt mean rejecting emotions etc but accepting them, not relying or indulgeing in them..you know what i mean?

    so, from a buddhist or taoist perspective, if your caught up in only trying to make yourself happy, your always going to be caught up with yourself, which ("you" or "self" being an illusion or superficial) is merely just another form of desire

    listen to this song by jane's addiction. it's called "of course". here's the lyrics:

    of course this land is dangerous
    all of the animals
    are capably murderous

    when i was a boy
    my big brother held on to my hand
    and he made me slap my own face
    i looked up to him then, and still do
    he was trying to teach me something

    and now i know what it was
    now i know what he meant
    now i know how it is

    one must eat the other
    who runs free before him, shove him right into his mouth
    while fantasizing
    the beauty of his movements
    a sensation not unlike

    slapping yourself in the face
    slapping yourself in the face
    like slapping yourself in the face...


    god i love that band.

    A question to daodejin and maestro (and anybody else)

    What is wrong with being "victims" to your feelings (notice the the ""). Emotions is what makes humans different from animals (some might say it makes us worst than anmials, but I don't beleive so, we are what we are and nothing or no one can be essentialy bad or evil). Life without emotions is like...death. Aren't you practicing MA for the love of it? Isn't the lack of emotions just an other emotion?

    Like the neutral jedi dude said in "Knights of The Old Republic" : Passion is the danger a jedi must face, not emotions.

    I dunno, my opinion might change as I learn more about buddhism, but I have never understood why enlightment must come without the beauty of emotions. For even unhappy emotions are usefull and necessairy in one's life.

    yahah

    misunderstanding..of a sort hahahaha

    anyway..i understand duality is an illusion..i was just using the word to belittle your post because it came off as duality gone mad, i got annoyed at all the comp bashing(even though im not into ma comps! lol) and such..

    anyway..the only thing i have a problem with when it comes to religion and such is when people go crazy...

    they start talkin all weird..actin wierd..gettin crazy ideas

    my goal is to become like buddha..hahahaha...the evil pisser buddha!! ahhaha

    anyway..its just wierd..people talk about sitting under trees..peace to brothers and sisters and such its just wierd..even describing someone as a brother or sister is a form of duality and thus its detrimental

    all i wanna make sure is im not deceiving myself, i want to remain genuine throughout the whole meditation or whatever experience...not static..i know change is constant, but its just important i dont loose sight of my goals and what they stand for

    and its annoying when people talk like they are on the same path, but turn around and do shit that is totally unreal, and then they go on to say they arent in the wrong etc

    to me deceiving yourself like that is one of the worst things you can do..i know i insult people or im sarcastic or whatever from time to time..but still atleast i know what im doing and im man enough to admit..

    maybe i should steer clear of the baloon headed martial artists for awhile..

    whatever..anyway dao, was a misunderstanding not an attack at you obviously..more so an attack at your train of thought..which is obvious to you and everyone now...is something that pisses me off royale

    probably because i fear becoming them..either way

    rant over!!

    ahahaha
