It is one quote that has had more effect on me than any other quote I have ever heard.

Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand."

Ive no idea if this is someone's actual quote or what. I got it from a friend.

Great video. I don't resonate much with a few of his comments. Huang Po is a greatly mistranslated master. Some observers of Zen use Huang Po as a means to deny the compassion and love necessary to Buddhism. They mistranslate both the true higher self and the necessity of action. It's a primary problem in any religion. There is a Hidden Zen connected to its foundation in Buddhism. Sitting is only half. Practice leads to performance.

Practice leads to performance.

Who is going to practice and what is there to practice?

Meditation is called practice, where many people stop seeking.

Practice leads to performance.

What 'performance' is being sought? Anything in particular?
Not really sure what the statement - practice leads to performance means - that is why I ask these questions.
Are you hoping to get yourself to perform in a certain way?

“Human beings cannot live without challenge. We cannot live without meaning. Everything ever achieved we owe to this inexplicable urge to reach beyond our grasp, do the impossible, know the unknown. The Upanishads would say this urge is part of our evolutionary heritage, given to us for the ultimate adventure: to discover for certain who we are, what the universe is, and what is the significance of the brief drama of life and death we play out against the backdrop of eternity.”
― Anonymous, The Upanishads 800 BCE


The 'me' (the illusory separate self) cannot live without challenge or meaning because that is what the 'separate self is - the one appearing as seeking, looking for more, looking for some 'thing' which isn't.

Any of the deep thoughts by Jack Handey.

Like this one, "In weightlifting, I don't think sudden, uncontrolled urination should automatically disqualify you."

OMGosh I loved Jack Handey!!!! I had forgotten about him!


Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.

LOL.

Honestly the humor is almost... invasive.

Like for example, I was a little sad today and then I read some Jack Handey quotes so I could post one in this thread. The one I posted made me laugh but it was like I didn't even want to laugh cause I was a little sad and I was just looking for something stupid. But laugh I did, unexpectedly.

Idk what I'm saying but... the one you posted made me laugh, too. So thank you for that. So friggen funny.
