Time After Time

I am not quite sure how I am going to get out of bed most days, much less tackle that ever growing must ‘to do’ list.  The past month I have had cosmological questions sparkling various facets for my speculation.  So why do people who are very realized about things as they really are, still meditate four hours a day?

The Buddha practiced 4 or 5 sessions a day, three before noon and two afternoon, right to the end of his time in a body. I’m assuming from the body of his work showing the path to understand our human difficulties with a process to replicate his advancement to self mastery and self control, that The Buddha was enlightened. The Dalai Lama says he practices 4 hours a day. H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche practiced from the wee hours of the early morning till late at night, when he wasn’t composing texts or teaching. Khyentse Rinpoche was born in 1910, when he was seven years old, he was publicly recognized as one of the reincarnations of a great teacher. He spent most of the next thirteen years in silent retreat in remote hermitages and caves near his birthplace. A beginning practice on breathing, on one point of focus, builds self control that opens the doors to understanding of life, all life.  As his own teaching career developed, he became renowned within Tibet for his ability to transmit the teachings of each Buddhist lineage according to its own tradition.   He is regarded as having been a great teacher of teachers, a realized being, who was also a genuinely good human being.

I mention this Buddhist Person as a symbol of the endless source of goodness and the ever presence of the electrical life force motivating and moving our material bodies and our material world.  Many people in Eastern traditions believe that the life force and wealth of life experience is not lost when the end comes of a personality life.

Jesus, one of the universally famous men to have ever lived, came to prominence with the responsibility to help all of humanity to understand the conservancy of life energy. Here in the story of Jesus’s life and death, we have an example to support the belief that he rose from the cave where his lifeless body was placed.

What lives on is the results of our thoughts and actions. This is the most attractive aspect of the Singularity. The technology has not been invented but the IDEA of a repository of all human wisdom lives in the hearts of many people. I respect the work of Ray Kurzweil as a spokesman for collecting and saving the living intelligence of the people who are not famous outside their circle of friends and co workers as well as the national and internationally acclaimed.

“I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life – and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.”…

    Hi Ilsa,
    Much rain here -but warmish. Did a lot of weeding yesterday so today I stay inside trying to work on a quilt. but soon I have to tackle the lawnmower.
    Been reading Viktor Schauberger -one of those german semi mystical naturalist/scientists about the structure and behaviour of water. It’s kind of obscure but a turn on. I can’t help thinking that your extreme tiredness is because all the chemo and radiation jangled up the natural structure of water in the body -in the cells and connective tissue. maybe this is just fantasy on my part so don’t take it too seriously(!) but perhaps something like Tai Chi or Chi Kung would help. The movements can be very gentle and slow – There must be many good and experienced teachers in the Bay Area. maybe you could ask around and see what you can come up with -but go slow.
    I do Taoist tai Chi and there is a branch in SF. They tend -here- to be a bit doctrinaire but maybe there is a teacher there with broader experience??????
    Think of you,
    Cicely


    • Lovely imagining you gardening. I hope that later this year we can meet somewhere in New York City! and HUG!
