Not like you no, you don't get it. You gave it an agenda and i hate that, no religion please.

I posted it as it was meant to be, you got the religion stuff in the way for some reason and i don't and as you already saw, take that at all unless you are prepared to talk about it in deep, but it did not even belong here and you took it to mean something that was related to being a monk?

I'm so sorry but i don't like religion, if i offended you i'm sorry

Let's put it this way, if someone says "i'm christian or i'm muslim or i'm budisth or i'm satanist" or whatever other religion, the first thing i'm going to think is this person is not able to live without having to trying to tell every one else what he thinks he knows

Why say so at all? Can you live your life in a happy way without having to let other people know what you believe? What about songs, how do you find yourself to associate them like that?

I mean feelings, love feelings are a human thing, but relating them to religions? What for?

Anyways man, let's not talk about that at all. It's a lot better than looking like fool chimps throwing sticks to one another, right?


Thanks for your reply

A man once heard of a wise monk who lived on a mountain.
He searched for many years to find him.
Finally after climbing many mountains,
there he was.

"Wise master" he said, "Please train me to be a monk."

The monk replied. "I am alone here."
Then he pointed to the next mountain over. "You go be alone over there."

From Middle English monk, from Old English munuc, from Medieval Latin, Late Latin monachus, from Ancient Greek μοναχός (monakhós, “single, solitary”), from μόνος (mónos, “alone”).


A flower once grew in the middle of the road

A zen apprentice asked his zen master, why is this flower here, in the middle of the road?

LMFAO!

I wonder if you understand the seriousness of my question about the flower, or think it's a joke....


I'll leave that to you, as you seem to refuse to answer anymore and edited your last reply, oh well man

I may be dumb but i can tell you i know my stuff anyways LOL.. At this point, the life ball is on your side

Some people have different sleep schedules. It was already past my bed time.

The Flower of course:

The Zen master would not have answered. He would have stopped on the side of the road until the next cart passed. Then looked at the apprentice to see if he understood. If not, he would have stayed there as cart after cart passed until the apprentice did understand.



Not like you no, you don't get it. You gave it an agenda and i hate that, no religion please.

Is it possible that you saw an agenda where none existed?

Monk means a loner.
Monastery (a place full of monks) is an oxymoron.
That was the meaning of my little story. "You go be alone over there."

As for the song Monakh, I don't understand Ukrainian or Russian, so I found a crude translation.

Yes, a monk can come in from the cold and remove his cassock.
Once it is all torn up he can't put it back on.

I was going to post a poem that I wrote in 1997 that was actually quite similar to that song.
Too bad the poem had the word priest in it.
I figured if the word monk upset you so much I better just quit the conversation rather than mention the word priest.

Here you go though: An Unfortunate Misunderstanding

Nope the flower explanation is wrong

The flower is there because that's where it is, and no where else, it is "just there".. get it?

The flower... "It just be"

Here's another one

"I sit here"

I like zen LOL, but not as a religion


-

Using the word Monk looks very forced, just say "i'm single and this is why". Is 'Monk' something people use around you to say "I'm single" or "I broke with my partner" or "I'm a loner"? Looks very forced to be honest and never in my entire life i heard someone using it for that purpose, but cool


Yeah i did got upset, i don't have very good stuff to say about religion and every single thing that reminds me of that makes me feel upset LOL, i'm sorry

I don't know Zen. I was guessing, based on what I would do.

Not at all, nobody I've ever heard talks like that; just me.
It's kind of a personal thing.
People I've lived around think that if a couple breaks up, then the one who gets a new partner first is somehow the winner, and the other one is the loser. But I don't play by those rules.

One of the things about looking at nostalgia in music;
a song written long ago but not listened to then
can be listened to now
as if it was an old favorite.

Can be quite satisfying, you should try it for a bit, gives a completely different perspective to some things in life

I agree with you, that's a dumb way to think about it, i heard it the same lame thought as "If you don't find someone quickly your train will go away, and he will have all the things you planned while you have none of them"

Lame, I remember thinking something like.. "i'm not a babies + home sweet home factory", which was the reason i moved away at the time

I had my own stuff to work on, he wanted to stop my plans to do his, no alternative accepted.. LOL

I looked up Zen in Wikipedia and didn't quite get it. Taoism, on the other hand, seems to fit my worldview more. I've messed about with I Ching a bit in the '90s. Even wrote a program in QBasic, but the harddrive on my 386 died before I finished writing up the hexagram results. I never read the Tao Te Ching though.

But I did get mad. I slept it off though




"If you don't find someone quickly your train will go away, and he will have all the things you planned while you have none of them"


This video:

If the dude is so happy with his new life,
with his new wife,
what is the purpose of going back to trash his ex's place?
Weird people!
